Hi guys, I hope you can help. I have one of the pv-ss2710 showstopper televisions. It appears to have a flakey tuner. It will randomly lose signal and go to the blue screen that reports a lost signal.
I tried reloading the software with a fresh image and no luck. It works fine with composite inputs so it seems that it's the tuner.
I went looking at panasonic and found that they have all the parts for the tv available on their website.
part number description price
ENG36706GR NR UHF/VHF TUNER ASSY 41.60
If you now where to find it cheaper, please speak-up. :)
So am I right is it the tuner and is it worth replacing? Or should I be looking at something else? Also I am not an expert at soldering, how bad is it to change a tuner.
I'm techie enough to take it apart and work on it but don't want to waste my time if it's something else.
Same problem here. Combo tuner flakey as you described. Been that way for a long time, somehow seemed unnewsworthy. I made a coax cable with an extra long stinger (center copper wire)..didn't work.
woah is me. would love to hear a solution.
I've never seen the inside of an ss2710, so I have no idea how the tuner is mounted, but generally speaking, if you are going to de-solder and replace the tuner, you're in for a lot of work. Tuners have around 10 connections (I don't remember the # exactly) to the PCB. Cut the old tuner away from the board, then just desolder the bits of wire that were left attached. Soldering the new tuner in is going to be a PITA unless you clear the "holes" in the PCB - if you don't, it'll never mount level and you'll never get the thing attached correctly. Use a grounded soldering iron and remember two things:1) circuit components hate heat and 2) everything you're working with is a circuit component.

roto-plooker....and you're gonna have to pay for it.
The tuner in my 5504 just crapped out on me as well. I am hoping it's just a dust build up or something, so I'm going to clean up the insides. Here's hoping...
By the way, that's my first post in 1.5 years of lurking! :p
