Question about Panasonic CT-27G13 TV

5 Answers

CT-32HL42 Panasonic will not turn on

When I press the switch, nothing happens. The stand by on light is off but one does not need that to be on if you manually try to turn it on. Also, the remote will not turn it on either. This is what happened. One day I turned the tv off manually. Later that day when I tried to turn it on manually it would not start. Then about a week later, I pushed on it and it did start. I turned it off again, and since then I cannot get the tv to start at all. One thing, this is either a CT-32HL42 or a CT32HX42, but I cannot turn this behemoth around to verify which. I just know the model # from my owner's manual, which shows two model #s for my TV. I imagine there is not much difference.

    Hello, What we found out is that the fuse needed to be changed.

    Thank you for input though.

    Panasonic CT-32HX42 TV wont turn on. It starts but then shuts off right away if I unplug it for a little bit.

    Hi, have a 2003 Panasonic CT32HC43 HD capable TV that just now won't turn on at all. Went and got a box of fuses from Radio Shack based on everyone's advice and the TV is working fine. The old fuse was and did look bad. I had a pair of angled pliers and was able to get the old fuse out and new in through the small access hole.

    Thanks - you helped me fix the TV

I've had the exact same problem and had a service person repair it for $300. But this problem occurred again and I noticed that this may be a child-proof feature of the TV that many people don’t know about. When turning on the TV you will hear a clicking noise in about a second or two, but if you were to turn on the TV while holding down the TV/VIDEO button on the TV itself then you will not hear this clicking noise and will lock your TV from starting. To reset this lock you will need to unplug the TV for few seconds and then plug it back in which will reset this lock. I have used this feature now for a while since my year old son loves to turn the TV ON/OFF.

Thanks for the "fuse" tip. Replacing it cured my 6 year old Panasonic CT32HX42 "no power" problem.

Yep that is what it was for us, fuse. I got the fuse an an electrical shop for about $6.

Hi, I own the panasonic ct-36hl42

great set, but this has happened again to me and it has happened to me about a 3 yrs ago. I have heard this problem and often it is the fuse next to the plug once you take off the back of the set. I am trying to order one from panasonic but they won't sell me it. It only runs about $3.50. I requested a schematic from panasonic and they won't give me one either. I have had sets in the past , like jvc and they provided shematics for the set, and any time I needed work I would provide the schmatic which the tv repairman was grateful for.
I am finding Panasonic to be a terrible company for support and will never ever buy panasonic again since they seem to enjoy telling you NO they won't give it to you.
I have a samsung lcd flat 40" on the wall and needed service and found samsung much better. I believe Pansonic prefers to sell new stuff and does not give poop about the after market customer.

anyway, I am going to buy the fuse through a local tv repair shop whom I have befriended. He showed me the fuse the last time it broke and showed me how simple it was to replace. Note, the fuse is located next to the power plug once you take off the back. I have heard this fuse goes out often.
My advice....Stay away from Panasonic.!

These sets have a number of problems like yours which are associated with bad solder connections or cold solder joints. On this set one pin on the the start-up relay is usually open or intermittent The solution is to resolder connections on main p.c board. and especially on the vertical output IC. Also change the caps in the vertical section to avoid future problems. Scrivitron.

04 Triumph Speedmaster Doesn't Start, Battery 2 months Old, Check Battery, Ok Recharged, re tried noting, trace Ground Cleaned, apply Electrocompound to every electrical Socket, nothing

Try tracing it back from the starter relay with an automotive test light or voltmeter. Put the ground terminal of the test light onto a good ground, either on the engine or battery negative terminal. Then put the other end onto the small wire ( signal wire )terminal of the relay, turn ignition on and activate clutch or side stand switches as required then press starter button. Try it with the wire connected and disconnected and it should light up the test light. If the test light does light up it means you have current to the relay and the problem is further on with either the relay itself or the starter. If the test light did not light up then you will have to trace it further back through the safety switches ( clutch or side stand ) and fuses and start button until you get to a live feed. It would be helpful to have a circuit diagram for your bike so that you can see where to go next on the diagnostic circuit. You should be able to get one online if you don't have the manual. Think about it logically and you will soon find the cause. Best of luck.

My vl1500 won't turn over. When you hit the start button, absolutely nothing happens. Its as though the battery isn't even hooked up. The battery is strong, and when you turn the key on the lights are...

Check the start solenoid, start side. shoud be no voltage unless you press the start switch. With start switch pressed, you should jump from no volts to 12 volts. Check with 12 volt light or volt/ohm meter to ground.

You may also have safety interlocks ... engine in neutral? kick stand up? KILL switch is in the RUN position?

Security light will not work

You must have a three function wall switch. This means in addition to a button that opens and closes the door there are two other buttons on the same wall switch. One is marked LIGHT and the other is marked LOCK.

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage you must START with the lights ON. To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

The stand by light comes on but when I press the power button nothing shows up on the tv. Opened the back of the tv and manually hit the power switch and the tv doesn't power up.

there is a short circuit in the main power suply or in the high voltage power supply; a diagnosis is needed to determine what part got electrical shock. this kind of problem is average in the service bench so i recomend to ask for an estimate if you want to keep this tv
