Question about Panasonic CT-27G23 27" TV

Picture tube doesn't turn off

I have a Panasonic CT-31G30T television that is 10 years old. When I turn the power off with the remote or the button on the front of the TV, the picture tube will sometimes stay brightly lit and not turn off. By turning the power off/on a few times the picture tube may turn off sometimes; other times I have to unplug the TV. The problem is intermittent and not always there. Any idea what the problem is and what a ball park cost to fix might be?

    I have the same problem. The tv will not turn off at the tv or from the remote. We have to unplug all the time which can be very annoying (how lazy can we be, huh?).

    If it is the relay, how do I take care of this? Does it have to go to a tv repair person or can it be done by an unprofessional? thanks a bunch!

The power relay driver or the relay itself is bad. Its sticking closed so the voltage is there for the power supply but the micro has turned off the tuner.

The picture on my 31"

It sounds like the tube has burnt out. Now that price of lcds have come down especially in that size class it will cost just as much to repair as it would be to purchase a new tv.

I have a Panasonic 32" tube television that is only 6 years old (Model CT-32D31) that we bought from Sears. We suddenly have nothing but a horizontal white line across the screen, which "grows" into a...

Sounds like 'bad' or 'dry' capacitors in the vertical deflection circuit. Please note that leaving the white line on the screen too long can burn in the screen, which is permanent damage.

Cant turn off panasonic PIP

To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.

Panasonic CT-27D12D turning off on it's own

it sounds like a DRY SOLDER somewherein the PC board where the POWER SUPPLY located , I suggest , if your HANDY with this procedure, Im sure you can get it fix , FIRST lets remove the back cover to get inside the TV ( if TV was recently turn ON , you need to unplug it and wait till the next day to do procedure , cause the picture tube acts like a BIG capacitor reserving electricity,cause we goona need to remove that big RED round rubber plug to the tube ) . to make it short , you need to remove the PC BOARD and look for any dry solder , and resolder it ,that will take care of this problem

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.

sounds like you either have a bad vertical deflection ic, or a bad resistor supply power to the ic. i'me not sure of the location, but panasonics usually put it in is a ic with 10 to 16 pins all in a row. it will ne screwed to a small heatsinkthe making on the ic should start with laXXXX. x being numbers. good luck
