    Hello

    The problem with my TV is that I can literally hear the TV trying to turn on (some clicking noise inside the TV), but after 3 attempts it just stops. After trying several times in a row the TV will eventually turn on and function normally. Once the TV is on for sometime, if I turn it off it can turn back on without problem. Also, I've noticed that the TV can turn on much more easily if it is warm inside the house; it takes much, MUCH longer to turn on if it is cold inside the house.

    Please help!
    Marco

It sounds like your TV may have one or even several defective solder connections that need time to warm up before the TV will work as normal. The connections could be on any one of the circuit boards. For starters check out the convergence board with a X10 magnifier and pay close attention the the connections on the pins of the amp modules on the board.

If you have no electronics experience or experience with power, then I recommend that you get someone who does to check it out for you

Ciao marco,

The clicking noise is a device called safety protection switch that keeps turning off the TV because an error has been detected.

When a problem, such as a wrong voltage, a short, a defective IC or a bad component is detected, them main chip in your tv, familiarly called the jungle chip, send the unit in what is called protected mode.

In this situation a switch will keep turning TV off to prevent more damage, that is the clicking noise that you hear.

Try unplugging the TV from power for one hour or two, this will drain power completely and reset TV.

If it does not work, then the TV must be inspected following the troubleshooting diagrams from the service manual.

To do it yourself you need experience in testing electronics, some test requires working with live power. If you decide to DIY , get first the service manual.

If you need to call a technician use the phone number printed on the user manual.

You can get service manual and parts here.

Spero che questo possa essere d'aiuto.

Regards

Pt-53wx53g 1 red blink ever 5 seconds error code, can some diagnose the problem for me, I'm sure I can fix it myself if I know what's wrong. Thanks


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

Exactly as the old TV's. There is three tubes producing the picture and the technology is just the same. If you cannot find your instruction booklet, log onto Sony's web site and download it.
Hope this helps.

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV


Mine is having the same problem. It started around Memorial Day and is only getting worse. One white dot is now a dozen. I called Samsung several times and was given the brush off. They clearly know this is a problem and are failing to respond to the problem in hopes that people will deal with it on their own. It does not matter if your warranty is expired. This is a latent product defect. They are still liable and obligated to fix the problem. I have filed a complaint with the better business bureau. If the company does not respond, I'm taking this to small claims court to get reimbursed for any cost to fix my tv.
