Question about Panasonic CT-27HL14 27" TV
This is actually a Panasonic CT-27614A model - but it's likely close enough. The picture will go out, but I took the screws out of the clamshell & separated it slightly - then it works fine - until the next time. The solution has been to either open or close (or otherwise adjust) the clamshell until the picture remains on. At one time, I took the clamshell completely off - but could not see anything that was loose. I also can't identify what is getting adjusted by openning or closing the clamshell. It's annoying because if the clamshell is too far open, the remote doesn't work unless you're 2 feet from the set. A bestbuy tech looked at it a year ago - but he didn't know what was wrong - which is how I wound up with the set (my father in law gave it to me & bought a new one)
You could have a very small crack in the main circuit board. To find this you'd have to pull the board and flex it slightly and/or use an insulated and non conducting object such as a plastic rod and tap the board all over until you find a sensitive place. You have to do this with the set turned on. If you're not experienced at this type of trouble shooting, you need to get a qualified tech to do it for you. These sets usually require the use of an isolation transformer to protect you for being shocked. Also you need to know how to work around high voltage circuits. There's several thousand volts on your picture tube. Also you need to make sure you don't cause a short when the board is out of it's holder and in operation. Be careful ! Stargazer
