Philips Television not turning on

Hello, any help will be appreciated. I have a Philips television(3QPW862H37A) that was given to me after being hit by lightning(from what I was told). The TV will not turn on. I took the back panel off and looked at the board the power cord is hooked to. All looks fine and well but, there are to glass tubes that are white and hook up just like any other appliance fuse. I took one out and examined it. I can not tell if it is blown or not(partly due to the fact that i can not see through it). Any ideas?

If you want to check fuses find a Multimeter that has a continuity tester They shouldn't cost to much maybe 20.00.

Did you check the solder close to and on the HT transformer?
Please if you are not an electronic engineer, don't open the television, because voltages up to 25.000 volts are there. They can kill you.

My phillips television is locked


Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for Philips sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

This television is having a problem with intermittent component operation. The turning of and on is a sign that there is a problem with the circuits and the television going into the protection mode and coming out again. This will happen as the faulty component or components re-stabilize their operation.This problem will only get worse and could cause major damage to your television. You should take this television into a service center to have it tested and repaired. The Magnavox customer support telephone number is 1-800-705-200. Give them the model number of your television and the problem you are having with intermittent shut-offs during operation. They will be able to tell you how to get your television tested and serviced. I hope this information help you with your problem.
