Question about Panasonic PVQ-M2509 Combo
Wow, thats quite a unique symptom. Usually on the Panasonics, when the screen goes blank it is because the vertical output IC has cracked solder joints, but in that case you will not see the channel numbers displayed on the screen. If you have good audio but see absolutely no picture but you do get channel numbers on the screen then there is a problem in the video circuits. The fact that you say it happens occasionally suggests that a solder joint has cracked loose somewhere in those video circuits and that should be an easy repair that should not cost too much money, so it is fixable and I would not toss the TV yet.
