Question about Panasonic CT-32SL15 32" TV

1 Answer

Blurry Picture got blurry. Read some good stuff here and opened the back. I notice that the entire thingy attached to the tube slipped. The white attachments to the tube are offset like the thing slipped 3/4 inch on one side. What hope do I have of fixing it? I have rubber lineman's gloves... do I just jerk back into place?

    Well, I just heard a click while adjusting video (via remote) and everything went clear... blur went away ... now the screen goes dark and colors all washed out and bled together. goes in and out, when scene darkness changes colors get more, then less washed out.

    OK... got the service manual settings and adjusted the "service menu" ... Set looks good as new... but I am confused why it went blurry... and a click noise and all is well again...

    Should I wonder why the "yoke" is misplaced? Does it make sense that the yoke shows all the signs of having MOVED and yet I have a perfectly good picture?

    Well, the skintones are cartoonish... faces seem to have no definition. Could that be related to the yoke slipping?

You may have had a short in the picture tube. When you heard the click the short may have burned itself out. If this is the case it may happen again OR never again? The yoke shouldn't have slipped. They're either bonded or clamped the the neck of the picture tube. All the I've ever seen that have moved from their proper position have messed up the color convergence and the purity of the color.

    Since your colors are washed out and the picture is dark or gets light and dark, you probably have a bad screen control which is an integral part of the high voltage transformer (flyback transformer). The screen AND focus control are both tied together inside the flyback. This could explain the blurry picture you had. Since these two controls are part of each other this is probably where your problem lies. If so, the flyback needs to be replaced.
    I've seen this happen in a number of TV's. You need to have the set checked out by a tech.

Sony Trinitron kv-27HFR blurry

the picture tube is gone.
i repaired 150 sony xbr and kv series with that has a single gun not three and has a great pix,but burn out faster.
there is a main screen control that you can adjust ,but the tube is gone.
on the back of the crt there is 3 gun drives r g b .
turn the color all the way down so it is black and white.
if there is a green ore purple tint,one gun is out of balance.
ajdusting the r g b controls so that black and white is normal is what you want to do.
the crt board has the screen bias voltage 800volts on it so be very careful and use an insulated screwdriver to adjust the drive controls.

Wow, that is good detail on the tube that fell out. If it is a brass colored tube that is open on both ends then you need a new crank slide. You may also notice that the take up lever can be moved up and down about a quarter to half of an inch. That sleeve can't be put back so that it will stay, and installing a new crank slide is probably something that you will want someone to show you how to do, not read from a manual.
Is the small white wheel near the drive belt? If so, it is to hold tension on the belt. Let me know and I will look in one and can tell you where to hook it.

Day after thanksgiving, (year 2008) about to film my girls putting the tree and same E03 as all of you with the camera chewing my tapes. All of my DV cassettes are brand JVC so I know that was not the issue. I read and read and finally decided to grab a flashlight and study how the mechanism move. Then I noticed something suspicious about the right "two little spikes" attached to a white plastic piece that, when close, it moves to the right side of the camera head (the round stainless wheel inside). The white plastic piece mentioned above, part of it came off the guiding tiny little rail. 1. So I opened the tape compartment with an EJECT command, 2. Close it back up with an inmediate unplug of the camera without battery so it will stay in a position where I can get my fingers and paper clip inside. 3. With the paper clip, stretch the guiding rail in such a way that it widens so the bottom of the white plastic thingy can get back in the guiding rail. 4. Put a cassette inside and FFWD, PLAY or RWD and problem fixed.

Email me if you have any questions. Happy filming!

Blurry Picture

I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store. If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere.

So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.

Ice cube dispenser not working

I had this problem. The root cause was that mineral deposits had built up in the ice cube tray. The ice would not "dump"... but stayed in the tray after the dump cycle. I did not catch it quickly and eventually the plastic frame broke. That was easily replaced. Inspect the ice tray to see that all cube surfaces are smooth. If there are mineral deposits, they need to be removed. Do NOT scrub with anything abraisive or you will ruin the tray. As you are looking straight on at the Ice maker, with the bin out, depress the small black retangular tab. The tray assembly will come apart to remove the tray. Rinse the tray, then fill with warm vinegar. Let it soak. You may scrub with soft cloth, finger or fingernail to remove deposits. Replace the tray and you should be in business.

Manufactured January 1997 - Blurry white letters

Your TV is nearly 10 years old. Over a period of time, the Picture tube has become weak! (Technically, the Electron Emmissions from the Electron Heater Element has become reduced) Permanent solution is to replace it, but the cost will be prohibitive. Best is to get a new TV. Otherwise, take it into a Technician Shop, who will recondition it for a modest fee.
