Hi, My tv has stopped working. The symptoms are as follows,
Recently I noticed that the picture requires ever longer times to start after switching the tv on. The sound comes on immediately. I new that eventually, the pictures will not come on, and now I have reached that point. It seems as though the picture cannot "complete" the "warm up" stage. The screen is completely dark, i.e. as if there is no power. I have checked all the controls, and it is not a brightness setting or the tv/vcr switch, I am sure of that.
The model is Panasonic TX-W28R3
I am guessing that this is due to some dried out electrolyte, but this is just my educated guess, due to the fact that the fault became progressively worse, which could be an electrolyte in the process of drying up.
If anyone has any experience with this particular model, please tell me what is the part, and I will fix this in a flash.
