Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Sorry, Mike. The site said a Panasonic repair person and that is what I agreed to pay for. I've asked for a refund.
OK, they say they've charged my card. Are you ok to continue?
Looks like we have a couple of threads going here. I'll paste my reply to this one...
1. Are you using the ORIGINAL power cord that came with the Tv? Yes.2. Does the tv turn on and have picture/sound? Picture yes. Didn't check sound.3. Are both the fans running? Yes.4. Does the tv shut off? I unplugged it.5. Were/are there other things plugged into this outlet (and the other outlets on this circuit breaker)? Yes. A Monster power bar was plugged into a circuit. A Power Bridge was attached to the circuit. TV, AVR, power amp and computer were all connected to the circuit. But it's been running this way forever and the higher heat only noticeable for the past week or so. And last night after it tripped I noticed the back center of the TV panel was very hot to the touch.
Only in the last short while have I noticed that the TV was giving off more heat than usual. I thought it might have been from watching hockey and all the white color being broadcasted might have been making the difference. Last night was watching a movie streamed by computer and it seemed to be less warm. But then the trip. I never had cause to feel behind the TV before last night but it was hot. And the AVR was barely warm. Didn't check the power amp tho.
That doesn't help with the question of why the TV is suddenly running so much hotter than it was previously. It's been hooked up with that equipment for several years without an issue.
I admitted no such thing. What I said was, "Only in the last short while have I noticed that the TV was giving off more heat than usual."
No, I have the back off the TV. I'll try letting it run once I get it back together.
Your interpretation of my remarks is incorrect. Is there anyone there familiar with Panasonic plasmas?
