I think the set is trying to tell you something, perhaps concerning the received signal standard. Philips is a global company but TV standards aren't, so it may be letting you know that it cannot sync with the available signal.
If you have, or can borrow a digital camera, take a screen shot while the message is there. Most cameras have sufficient light sensitivity that you can leave the flash turned off since it will just produce glare and possibly obscure the message. You may have to try more than once but if you would like to know what the problem is, I can't think of any other way to capture it.
If you can trap the message, post it back here to this thread and I'll attempt to translate it; I have a fair amount of foreign language familiarity.

It takes 5 to 7 minutes to turn on my Magnavox HD TV


IFyou feel confident and can locate switch mode power supply with back removed.
Try warming switchmode power supply before turning TV on.
If TV turns on normaly then there are some small capcitors that are a common cause of this fault.
Otherwise look for DRY or CRACKED solder jointson PCB
BUT DON'T do any of the above if your are not confident send it to a TV repaiman.

My tv shuts off in seconds!


If it's that new call the place that it was purchased and see about manufacturer warranty... It should have a one-year parts and even that will help...
The problem you're describing is likely the center led or prisim. The unit thinks there is a tape in the tape path and attempting to load it. Not an expensive repair but highly complicated for the average person...
