Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
Time for some old fashioned trouble shooting. first divide the issues... the remote not working could possibly be a connection issue.
second you can do a soft reset ... unplug the tv for about four hours.
third is to check for cold solder joints. that requires first smacking the tv (yep pretty old fashioned test). if anything changes you need to localize where the problem is.
You need to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL for this next part. power on the tv and tap components on the circuit board gently with a non conducting item. even a hollow pen would do... or something plastic.
Be aware that you are dealing with electricity so be very careful with that.
any changes on the screen as you tap components indicate most likely bad solder joints... after you have unplugged the set resolder those components.
also inspect by feel the capacitors on the circuit board .... feel for rounded tops. any you find need replacement... not the values of the component as well as the orientation of them.
I will stress again... when you are testing for bad solder joints be aware that it is electricity you are dealing with and it has the potential to kill you.
