sudden shutdown

  1. Hi, My approx. 8 year old 32" Panasonic tv has been suddenly turning off by
    itself and will not come back on until it seems to have 'cooled' for a few
    minutes. Upon reaching around the back to unplug the unit, I grabbed the
    cable input (coax) by mistake and the tv came back on. I have tried it now
    several times and works all the time.
    Can anyone tell me if this is an expensive repair??
    Thanks!!

    Charlie:
    As long as the television is still responding to your method of wiggling the
    connector to get it to turn on... the repair should not be overly expensive
    to have a repair shop fix it for you.... HOWEVER, do NOT wait to have it
    repaired.... if you continue to nurse this along until it won't come on at
    all then the repair could easily be more involved and much more expensive.
    Get it to a shop right away to have it repaired.... most likely the culprit
    is cracked, cold, or otherwise faulty solder connections near and around the
    heat producing components and/or crack pc traces on the board near the tuner
    circuitry.
