Question about Philips 32PW6006 32" TV
Have had an intermittent problem whereby the TV switched off by itself, often when we were first turning it on. Now it just won't turn back on again, although occasionally if we leave it for a minute, we'll hear a bit of sound but then nothing. Whilst this is happening, we can hear a contstant clicking noise at the back of the TV. A friend seems to think that the transponder has gone but this can be fixed as opposed to being repaired. The World Cup is just about to start and we're buying a house at the moment, this is just sod's law! I'm looking forward to my car engine blowing up tommorow just to top everything off!! Any help/guidance/quotes of possible costs massively appreciated!
Problem is the CRT 100% after a while u will get color fluctuation on the cathode which is causing the problem and then the power supply is switching off detecting a high current peak.Why?? Because one or two cathodes (my case) get nearer (provoking discharge in the heater circuit) or shorted to the heater (later)because of the heater oxide buildup. Problem is random and tv could work for days even and have days when will cause the problem every few minutes(grrr...).Solving: best way is a tube rejuvenator and should be made by a qualified technician(special equipment needed).BTW this problem is common to this type of tv sets CRT's are made i chech republic and all suffer from the same problems.Other home kinda fixing just read up about using g2 voltage to try rejuvenating the CRT but not much success guaranteed but helps a bit switch off rate decreases but doesn't disappear. Gluck

Cheer UP!!! Its not that bad Im sure? Ok first off theres nothing in that set thats called a transponder, so dont let anybody work on your set thats not a technician. They can be hurt or killed. Your problem could be a simple cold solder connection on the sweep board but the longer you wait with these types of repairs the worse they get as they cause parts to go bad in the power supply, as it sresses them badly. Call an authorized servicer and ask for an estimate, and if you like the set and the cost is reasonable go for it, and maybe get it back before the cup games are on??!! Good Luck
