Question about Philips 43P8341 43" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Philips projection died

It started with the source select button shutting the tv down and making it impossible to get back to the correct input if it was changed. then it would shut off on its own and i would have to wait to turn it on now it wont turn on at all i have first year electronics and am an automotive mechanic including electrical i just need help narrowing down the problem to a few simple change outs before i take it to a tech. a friend said his had a resistor go out i can change that so dont want to pay to have some one change a small component but i have limited test equipment basically i have a multimeter and not a good one any help you could give would be great i have tried unplugging it to reboot it hasnt worked thanks

They only way to really narrow down a service problem such as a dead set would be to first get a downloadable schematicfor like 20 bucks, I have seen them even less expensive! Then start troubleshooting the power supply to see if the SMPS is functioning or shut down because of excessive current draw or a short circuit somewhere else in the set. If you get a schematic and need a hand I will be happy to point you in several spots that need to be checked first BUT you must be aware of the HIGH VOLTAGE thats stored inside these sets even when they are unplugged,, If it bits you, You will know it!! believe you me!!! Good Luck

How do I get rid of a no signal sign on my tv


You may have the wrong input source selected. There are a number of different source connections on the back of today's TV sets. Using the remote's SOURCE button, cycle through the different inputs until you find the one that your input device is attached to. It is common for users to inadvertently cycle off the correct input when pushing remote buttons.

I am trying to hook up my ps3 but it says change resolution source


make sure everything is plugged in correctly. also make sure that the input/source of your tv is correct. If all these don't work, then: 1. unplug both the tv and the ps3 2. plug them both back in 3. turn the tv on first make sure it is on the right hdmi source. 4. turn the ps3 on by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds until it beeps.

the ps3 start screen should show up now.

You can use your remote to change the video source to the one you have your Wii plugged into on your tv.

  2. Press Enter or the Right Arrow button to access the Setup menu
  3. Use the up/down arrow to select Main Input
  4. Press Enter or the Right Arrow to enter the Main Input menu and then use the Up/Down arrow to select the correct input.

My input source screen keeps popping up and scrolling through the options - once I select source (example TV) the TV will come on then the input source comes back on and keeps scrolling on its own


My new 4K Vizio 60" M60-C3 started scrolling through input channels on it's own and after a minute would stop and "land" on an input, then I would have to change it to the correct one. Then the volume started "racing" to 100 making it impossible to watch. Vizio repairman came and replaced a small board about 1.5 in. x 5 in. and it is back working again. It fell within the 1 year warranty, so no charge, and he suggested I go back to Wal-Mart where I bought it and spend $59 on the extended warranty. I am certainly going to try and do that.

I hook my antenna to the back and I'm not receiving a picture


Hi,

I'm assuming your Antenna is connected to your TV with a co-axial cable? If so, please make sure you have run the Analogue/Antenna/Air channel scan correctly:

1. Switch the TV on
2. Press the "MENU" button on the Curtis remote supplied with the TV.
3. Press the RIGHT arrow button five times to highlight the "Channel" menu
4. Press the "ENTER" button or the DOWN arrow once to open the "Channel" menu

The Air/Cable option should be highlighted.

5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow buttons to set the "Air/Cable" option to "Air"
6. Press the DOWN arrow to highlight "Auto Scan"
7. Press the "ENTER" button or the RIGHT arrow once to start the automatic channel scan.

When the scan has finished, the TV should automatically return to viewing mode. If not, just press the "EXIT" or "MENU" button on the remote to close the menu.

You also need to make sure the correct INPUT/SOURCE is selected on the TV:

1. Press the "SOURCE" button on the Curtis remote
2. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight "TV" in the INPUT SOURCE menu
3. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote to select "TV" and close the INPUT SOURCE menu.

This should be all you need to do to watch your TV from an antenna source.

Please post back if you are still unable to get it to work and need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a 19" phillips lcd tv and when i turn the tv on the phillips screen comes up but when it is going the show the channel it shut off by itself how can i fix this problem?


Hello. I may be able to assist you. If you are using a direct cable connection from the wall outlet;
  • Check the incoming cable or antenna signal connection to ensure that it is properly secured to the TV's antenna input.
  • If the connection is good, perform the automatic installation again to search for all available channels.
If you are using a coaxial connection from the Cable or Satellite box to the TV;
  • Set the TV to the channel specified by the service provider.
  • Change the channels at the Cable or Satellite box to view the program.
If you are using a video connection (CVBS, S-Video, YPbPr, HDMI) from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  • You do not need to perform automatic installation to search for the channels.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button on the remote control repeatedly to select the correct input source.
If you are using an HDMI connection from the source (DVD, Cable or Satellite box) to the TV;
  1. Reset the TV and source by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  2. Turn on the TV and press the play button on your source device. If the source is HDMI CEC compliant, the TV will automatically switch to the HDMI input.
  3. If your source is not HDMI CEC compliant, turn on the TV and switch to the HDMI input.
  4. Turn on your source.
If you are sure you have selected the correct input or channel but still have no picture or sound;
  • Try resetting the TV by unplugging it from the power outlet for 30 seconds.
  • Press the 'SOURCE' 071218044349_22024.gif button to select the correct input source.
  • Check the connection cables.
  • Try the connected source with another TV.
  • Connect a different source on the same connection of your TV.

Unable to select channels using the unit


First, test to make sure the Philips remote is working by trying to play a dvd. If the remote control is working, then either A) your TV is set to the wrong channel, or B) you have not selected the correct source on the Philips remote.

Look at how the cables run from the back of the Philips to the TV. In the back of your TV, the slot that the cables are plugged in to is usually labelled "AV1, "AV2, "Video 1", "Input 1" or something like that. Change the television to the appropriate input/source channel.

Press the Source button on the Philips remote and make sure it says E1 or whatever the appropriate source is.

Then try changing channels using the Philips remote.

This does not exhaust every possibility, but you must check the above first to see if anything else might be wrong. If the above does not work, then I would double-check to make sure the cable/satellite box is connected to the Philips correctly.

When there?s any bright white light, the unit just loses the signal .


Good Day, littlejhon4u;
Try this and/or try using different input: White raster with no signal, washed out looking video with signal. Access the service menu, "menu 0157" use the audio button to select "video chroma" adjustments, use the video button to select item "68 - AG1", use the adjust button to change the setting to 0, then press the enter button to store the change. Good Luck, big IRISH. PS; Adjust this ONLY.
