I have a Panasonic CT-36hL43G TV that just turned
i hope your tv is more than 4years old ....... in all CRT TV's or CRT monitors after 4years a component called flyback transformer (see picture ) becomes weak - its work is to supply voltage to tube............. then following are the signs ...
(1) in some TV's only front LED's blinks - no picture no sound.... (2) in some TV's picture comes slowly after few seconds or after few mins or after few hours......... (3) in some TV's suddenly picture & sound goes temporarly & after some time again it appears ...... etc in case of (2) & (3) only flyback transformer needs to be replaced .....100% GUARANTEE again TV works normallyBUT in case of (1)... --------------- YOUR CASE (a) either only flyback transformer gets deffective or (b) flyback transformer & another component called transister ( will be near flyback transformer & its back portion is attached to aluminium metal ) gets defective or (c) along with flyback & transistor -- 3 or 4 more components (resistors, diodes, some times ICs ) gets deffective so replacing flyback transistor is a must .. & to find whether any other component is deffective or not completemainboard has to be checked ....... so if you are a technical person & having expierence in servicing line then you can do it yourself otherwise approach good tv service engineer ........... your TV is really very good one ... so don't think of buying new TV .... just goahead for repairing it it is worth & it works for atleast 2 more yrs....... try this & tell me what happened switch off your TV ... remove power cord from socket ,,,,.ware some mat or chapples to your feet ..... remove your TV's back side cover ......... observe carefully for any physically damaged components .... if you find then don't do anything ... close tv cover & approach tv service engineer ............. but if no physically damaged components are visible then take a suitable screew driver & rotate 2 (or 3) Knobs on flyback transformer in clockwise or anticlockwise direction - very little ( 4 or 5 degrees ) - you have to do this without touching any cable or any part of your tv .......... then fix..... back side TV cover ........connect power cord - stay at a distance & switch on your tv ......... if you get picture atleast for few seconds then in your case only flyback transformer needs to be replaced otherwise complete mainboard has to be checked. to find other deffective component ............. so your tv problem is a harware problem - it cannot be solved using remote control or any buttons on your tv ..... if you are finding difficult to get it repaired then you can remove your tv mainboard with the help of some technician & send to me ...... i will replace deffective components .... & send back to you ....you only have to bare the shipping charges .....it will take maximum 12days (5days - to recieve + 2 days servicing + 5 days to send back to you )....

Have a Panasonic CT-36HL44J hdtv, power supply is
According to a service forum (not FixYa), 8 blinks indicates Driver SOS 3 SS Board (SS energy recovery circuit) - in other words, the 8 blinks means a protection code for a faulty board/module. Unfortunately, this may not be repairable at consumer level; the TV will have to go to a workshop to have that board (if this model has it) examined and/or replaced (manufacturers no longer provide individual components for replacement; they lean towards replacing entire boards/panels/modules in their appliances nowadays). The only problem here is the likely cost(s) involved.
I suggest that you obtain a quote from an authorised Panasonic service centre, then you can decide for yourself if it is economical or worthwhile repairing. It's up to you.
- the error code/circuit failure can vary over different models.

Intermittent fault when using sky+ box. Picture
The most likely culprit is a poor connection between the two. Try reseating the cable between them when it happens, or try a new cable.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Sounds like the power supply has copped a mains-borne surge. Replacing the fuse doesn't always fix it unfortunately. The cost to repair the switchmode PSU depends on how many components have been affected within it and the extent of the damage as a result of the surge. If the damage is serious, for example burn marks/large cracks on the board, and the optocoupler is destroyed, the whole set would be uneconomical to repair.
You can never predict when or where a power surge is likely to strike.

My panasonic tv won't turn
Your TV is in protection mode. This indicates a fault with the power supply, or other board. First try leaving it unplugged for a while, and trying another outlet.
If none of that works, then it's pretty much toast. Since you've got a CRT, I wouldn't recommend checking the tv out yourself. Take your TV to a local repair shop.
