Question about Philips 32PW6006 32" TV

2 Answers

TV won't come on and can hear a contstant clicking in the back.

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!

Re: TV won't come on and can hear a contstant clicking in...

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

How do I connect wireless headphones to my sony kv34hs510

Are your headphones blutooth or infra-red? Is your Trinitron Blutooth or infrared enabled to allow you to listen to it thru your headphones? If so, there must be an on/off switch that would actuate the Blutooth or infrared meachanism on the Trinitron itself. Otherwise, you WON'T be able to hear sound.

TV set will not switch on.either with the remote or with the power button. Intermittent fault.

From my experience, your inverter starter circuit is bad. The "click" then nothing or in some cases a popping sound from the speakers as well, means that one or some of the capacitors on the main power section of the control board are leaking voltage to the point that they no longer have a strong enough charge to "jump" the circuit that starts the picture, and when that happens it turns the set back off. leaving the tv alone for an hour or so will allow it to charge the capacitors back up just enough to jump it once and then the problem comes back. There is no easy fix for this problem and soon it will stop turning on at all. some people have had success when "whacking" the side of the tv seems silly but I've seen it actually work. It's only temporary though and that circuit will fail. If you have a great attachment to this tv, go get it fixed at the repair shop. If not, then just go get a new one. This happens to all types of tv's eventually.

My tv 32pw9617 switches of by itself.

sounds lick you may have a dry joint in the powers or line o/p stage.

as a rare fault it could be the crt with an intermittant internal s/c. but you would notice the colour was tinted either red, green, or blue in the dark areas of the pic.

The little button on the main circuit board may be sticking intermittently causing your set to do this. This little push button was operated by the piece your 3-year old broke off.

My Panasonic TV

Many TVs, including some Panasonic models, have an Auto-OFF feature that will automatically turn the set off after a few minutes, if the TV thinks it is not receiving a video signal. By reinserting the coaxial cable, you are probably restarting the Auto-OFF timer inside the TV. There are several possible things that could cause the Auto-OFF to falsely activate. Try and change the coax cable going from the VCR to the TV, if you have a spare. If not, plug the cable from the cable box directly into the back of the TV. Make sure the TV is on the correct channel, usually Ch 3 or Ch 4. (Do not use the original cable that was running from the VCR to the TV, just in case it is intermittent.)

So far you have done all you can and you have done everything right. The fact that the TV turned off by itself and then turned back on by itself suggests that one or more solder joints have come loose inside the set. A qualified tech should find this easy to fix, and Sony sets are always worth repairing, so it is now time to have the set serviced by a tech experienced in Sony standard sets.

TV won' turn on

Solder, solder, solder! Shut down circuits protect crts to avoid permanent damage. If any of the deflection circuits are defective, or intermittent, shut down occurs. I have not only seen bad solder on deflection circuits, especially vertical, but also intermittent connections on the yokes themselves. I've also seen shorted convergence ics cause shut down. Don't forget solder connections in the power supply.
