sorry for the delay, I was away from home.
The TV is a 32 inch LCD HDTV, Model#CT34WX54J.
We purchased in October of 2004. We have never had any trouble until now.
It shuts off, we pull the plug, replug and turn on and it starts again. Sometimes it plays for 2 or 3 hours without shuting off and sometimes it will shutoff 4,5,6 times in a row.
I had someone fix it, he replaced tuner, not the problem, now he refuses to answer
my calls. I am really getting irritated. Panasonic tells me they have had very few complaints about this model and they cannot help because it is no longer under warranty. We recently added Direct TV and they say it has no bearing on our problem.
No one seems to know what to do and I am frustrated. Please help!
Did this problem start immediately after you had someone work on it?
What do the lights on the front of the set do when it shuts down?
started about 2 months after direct tv installed.
when it turns off there are no lights on at the front of the tv, only
on the direct tv box. we tried other outlets, and a new power strip.
we plugged other things in the outlet thinking it might be the outlet
but everything tested okay. Do you think it could be the tv electrical cord ??
I am frustrated.
Considering it shuts down with no lights on the front it could be either the main board or the power supply, also slight chance it could be the panel itself drawing to much current and shutting down.
This repair will not be a quick fix and will need a technician to fix. I would guess the average repair could run anywhere from $300-$500 (which is close to the replacement cost).
It is very sad that new technology only lasts about 2 years on average.
Let me know if you have more questions, I will be more than happy to answer them!
Thanks for the help. Very frustrating.
My 20 year old 20" tv works just fine.
It is so sad that all this technology is
flash and no substance. Very annoying!
