Panasonic Tau Won't Turn On

    Hello,

    I purchased a Panasonic Tau CT-32HC43 about 2.5 years ago. The set has
    generally worked great, but suddenly this afternoon it will not turn
    on. My wife tried to turn the set on and saw it begin to turn on, but
    then suddenly it went off and it hasn't turned on since.

    I've tried unplugging it for a few minutes and plugging it back in as I
    have found some suggest online, but that hasn't seemed to help. The
    Panasonic support office is closed (early), but in any case I'm sure
    they will just tell me to take it to the nearest service center which
    will be a pain due to the size of the unit.

    Has anybody experienced anything like this with this particular model
    who has an easy fix?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Try checking the power supply if you know how to troubleshoot it. Did
    you check your fuse if it is not burnt?

    The common cause is power supply and scan amp failures in these sets. You
    will have to take it for service, unless you are experienced and have the
    set-up to troubleshoot and service the set.

    Thanks for the help everyone. Well, I was hoping to avoid it, but it
    looks like I'll be calling the service center.

    Thanks!

    Just to wrap this thread up, I had a service technician take a look and
    all that was needed was a new fuse. He checked the unit out and
    couldn't find the cause.

    Hopefully it won't happen again. Thanks for the help.

    I have the same problem. Any idea where the fuse is located?
    Thanks

    The fuse is on or near the PS. I had the same problem on my Tau
    recently. I tried but failed to repair it, thinking it was a PS
    problem. The fuse was not burnt out. It ended up costing $330 at the
    shop to replace various ICs, diode(s) and the flyback transformer.

    These sets won't turn themselves on if they sense a fault in a circuit.
