Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

3 Answers

Panasonic Model CTP27805F 27 inch Color Television I have a Panasonic Colored Television Model CTP27805F. It is approximately 15 years old. The television was operating perfectly until about a month ago. Suddenly with no prior indication the Color quit working. It continues to have a excellent Black and white picture. Several questions: #1 What is wrong? #2 Is it worth fixing by a expert? #3 I am fairly capable of replacing a part, if that is all that is wrong. Is it something I can repair? Respectfully, Benjamin J. "Joe" Browning

    Hello,

    From the solution I received on Response #1. It appears this is outside of my level of expertise. Which brings me to the next question. Is it worth fixing?

Hi,

If everything else works other than perfectly black and white (no dolor) then I would suspect either the color crystal or the trimcap (variable capacitor) in the chroma section. No more than two (2) pins to solder, should not cost much and that bulk of the repair job would be disassembling the board to have access for the soldering job.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The above site has some instructions on how to get into the service mode. You may be able to adjust the color balance and other settings to bring the picture back into the right range of acceptable color and focus.
Hope that helps......

    Since your television work for a long period of time already having it fix is good but since you will also be paying a repair guy for this I may suggest you to get a new television instead, but if you really want to use this unit go ahead and let a repair guy fix it for you..



    Good luck.........

What I do with colour cast problems :-

1) check the voltage (with no aerial signal) on the collector of all three video output transistors (on the crt base) they should be +-5v of each other if one is different, then swap over this transistor with one of the other two and if color changes, its the transistor, If not then I use a 2k-4k wirewound and touch it from each collector to chassis in turn, and watch the screen (I use a mirror) each color should be equally bright with flyback lines, if not its probably the tube (CRT) faulty.

2) If all of tests are ok, then I find the three wires coming up from the the main pcb to the crt base panel and swap over the green/red and see if the color cast changes
If yes then its the chip on the main board, If no its on the crt base board, so check values of all the resistors there.

Nice big screen but CRTs are getting old So, if you can't set correct colors with your Hyundai it might have some serious issue with tube. Probably replacement might cost you more then a new new 27" Flat Panel. See some tutorial and info about bad color of CRT

Current value of a jvc 32 inch color tv 8 years old


The street value would be 100-150 dollars. If TV is a cheap model or abused or very used, you should pay less.
Consider a Sony or a Toshiba in tube style since all are cheap now.

A month ago our house was struck by lightning and The Insurance company wants to know what the price of the Television. Or what it is worth today. He purcheased the TV about 4or5 years ago. the tv was...


$150 usd- $177usd. SEE HERE
$200 SEE HERE

Quote from the link...
" My Bottom Line

Considering the price, I am pleased as punch with this purchase. Expecting to receive only basic features, the Orion shouldn't disappoint. Audio buffs should look elsewhere, but at a purchase price of approximately $150 for a 27" TV, one isn't looking to the STV2763A as a high tech set. I'm sure I'm forgetting certain specs here, but this my low tech review of a low tech set. I'm happy with the Orion, a nice balance of value and price."

Amount Paid (US$): 177.00

Since it is 4-5 years old look to get less than half from the insurance co.

Vertical color bands take the place of the picture.


I sent my question to the "solve your problem for free" on this website, so I was expecting some "free" advice. My finances are such that I can only ask for free advice. I did see someone who had a similar-sounding problem, and there was a mention of two possible main boards that would fix the problem. I was hoping to know which board would most likely fix my problem, since the TV is less than two years old. If I take it to a TV repair person, I want to have a fairly good idea how to fix it, and what would be the approximate cost, so I do not get ripped off.

Parallel vertical lines through left side of Panasonic Plasma tv


This sounds like one of the driver boards at the bottom or top of the screen has an intermittent fault. The set will have to be taken in to a service centre.
