Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

1 Answer

I think our TV is around five years old now. Over the last year we have had the same problems about four times the last three this year. It just turns its self off. The red light is left flickering for a short time and the picture disappears. You can turn it back on but it will only remain on for about 5mins before it turns its self off. I have taken it in 3 times to be repaired. They have talked about cleaning out the cooler fans replacing ? safety switch which has helped for a short time. When I phoned this time they were not sure and hinted maybe I should buy a new TV. What do you think. Cheers Adrienne

Hi there, hope this helps. Why not try to replace the filter capacitor in the secondary section. you said you have it repaired before and now the same problem happens. sometimes we should replace the capacitor for this is usually the cause of defects in the power supply. In long usage of capacitors it becomes leaky that results to insufficient power output. you can see the defects visually (sometimes it become bulgy) unless you use the capacitance tester. having it replaced can surely extend the life span of your TV. if you're not sure which one is the leaky one try to replace most of the capacitor especially the big ones. like I said replacing any of them can enhance for better performance of the unit.
Good day, please rate and vote.

Hi Anonymous, five years on a battery is a very long time, most motorcycle batteries only last two or three years. I would start by replacing the battery. Good luck

The repair of this problem will be near to or exceed the cost to replace it with a new flat screen. With TV prices at an all time low due to slack demand it is not cost conscious to repair it.

We just bought it and have no idea how old it is

Is it the original engine? What brand engine is it? For example if it is a Briggs the code from the model number block, it has the model, type, and (date)code. The first two digits of the code are for the year, the next two for the month, the next two for the day, and there are a few other characters, but not important in determining the date of manufacture. Next example is a Tecumseh engine. Look on the model/serial number tag, find the DOM, date of manufacture. If it is a four digit, first is the last number of the year, and the last three are the day of the year. The problem with that method is that the DOM number reoccurs every ten years. Then you have to guess which decade it was made in. Tecumseh fixed this in 2004 with a five digit DOM code with the first two numbers for the last two digits of the year. Anyway, let me know what you have.

Hello, My tv is about 5yrs old.We heard a loud

You need to replace Y main board & buffer, which will cost you around $600-700. Since the TV is five years it will be better to go with new, and it won't be worth enough to spend $700 for old TV.

Hope this helps.

5 year old plasma that looses half the picture

Hello. I recommend that you forget the repair for two reasons. 1. Pricey. 2. You still have a 5 year old set with no warranty. In the last five years, the tv technology has come so far. The HD is fabulous. The new sets cost less to operate and they are so much better than they were five years ago. Joe

Minolta QMS 2560 gets NIC overload after printing 6 or 7 pp.

check if it happens with any other machine to narrow down the problem.Once you know if its the printer or the MAC it would be easier to fix.MAC usually does not give problems.
