Question about Philips 27PT6441 27" TV
I have a phillips flatscreen television. i turned on the tv and there
were white horizontal lines at the top of the screen. the lines look
______________ except the lines are much closer together and white. also when i turn the television on before the picture appears a red, blue, and green line appears on the screen about a quarter of the way down from the top.
then the white lines appear that i mentioned above when the picture comes on. can you please help! model# 27PT6441/37
I've read on this and other boards that replacing a capacitor is the fix. Can you help identify which capacitor and any safety precautions needed to safely replace it/them.? Thanks
Pls note that my experience is with the phillips 27" model27PT6341/07. It may not be the same board as yr model, as I can't remember nor find the service manual anymore. (browse around online for it though)
However, after taking the back off. Look close to the rca jack and svideo connection. Mine is located about an inch from the svideo connection.
Here are some pics that may help you.
The new one is the black and gold one marked 10uf 100v in the pic.
Other users have advised to go as high as 10uf 250v, to avoid having the cap overload again.
PS. I had the lines for about 2 weeks. They got steadily worse then one day my tv looked like it was broadcasting an hourglass. The lines converged in the center and flared outward (no pic).
