Question about Draper Cineperm 132" 1.85:1 Projector Screen

2 Answers

I have a 3 year old Panasonic CT-32HXC14J TV. It has been working fine until today. When I tried to turn it on the internal (6.3amp/125v fuse) blew. I went to get a new one and could only find a 4 pack 5 amp/125v instead. When placing it in the TV it also blew, so I did a stupid thing and bypassed the internal fuse and it turned on and worked. I then tried another 5 amp fuse and again the TV worked fine for an hour. After turning the set off for around 2 hours, I turned it on to only have the fuse blow. The TV is now unplugged. Whats the problem with this thing?? Please Help.

I had the same problem. Took the back off and found the 6.3 amp fuse blown. Replaced it with a 6.3 amp 250V fuse and cleaned out the dust especially off the high voltage transformer. It seems to be working ok now.

Hello sjday62

It sounds as if you have a component that has changed value enough in value to cause a high current draw, but has not completely shorted out. this phrase from you "so I did a stupid thing and bypassed the internal fuse and it turned on and worked" Not as stupid as you would think because it confirms what I said above, the 6.3 amp fuse tells me that the current draw normally is about 3 amperes since the normal rule of thumb is to double the value of the current to select the type of fuse. a five amp fuse should as well as a 4 amp fuse (it's best and recommended to use the exact fuse type). Now back to your issue. I would suspect that a transformer in the power chain has developed a shorted winding, or a capacitor begun to develop a short or excessive absorption.

I would suggest that you have the set looked at by a qualified TV technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Tv problem with a fuse


Your degausing thermistor is bad and needs to be replaced. The part number is D4DDF1R50001

Once that is replaced put a new fuse in put the set back together and you should be good to go. You will need to replace the fuse with the correct size and its part number is

Our Panasonic CT-27HL15 set is only 4 years old and suddenly decided not to turn on. When you press the power button, it turns on for a second then makes a noise inside and shuts off. Any ideas is it worth...


I have one of those that is the same age and the 6.3 amp fuse was blown out. I replaced it with a 6 amp fuse (i could not find 6.3 nearby) and got a few more weeks use until the fuse blew out again. someone suggested i get a slow blow fuse next time.

Panasonic ct-32sl13g blowing fuse by power supply


You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.

There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side, one right next to where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more by all of the video connections **These are the most important to remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.

Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four pack costs between $3 and $5.

Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back there. I found a few when I did this.

Good luck!

No Power to my TV after power outage


A lot of times its simply a fuse that goes out. Either way someone is going to have to open it up and inspect the fuses first. It 's a fairly inexpensive service call.

Hopefully the fuse took the hit from the storm.

No picture no sound nothing


We had a TV repairman look at our 3 year old (Oct 2004) Panasonic CT-32HXC14J FLAT SCREEN TV. It suddenly stopped working and appeared to have no power getting to it. It was a high voltage supply or transformer that was bad and has to be replaced - estimated cost is around $400. In a year we will also need to spend around $125 for a digital converter box. We went for the repair since that is still cheaper than a $1,000 plus equivalent size LCD or plasma.

Our old tube tv was still working after 15+ years. They aren't making them like they used to. Way to go Panasonic.
