Question about Philips 17MF200V Television

Open Question

Only static We bought this TV for our RV. It worked great, but unfortunately got knocked off of the shelf. Is it a goner??? Now, We can turn on power on the TV or with the remote, but nothing else. None of the other buttons on the TV or remote function. When turned on, all We get is black and white static, like if no antenna signal on the old sets. I am fairly capable of doing minor repairs, I am just not sure where to start. Is this maybe something a pro could fix? Thanks for your help. Troy

This is most likely a power supply failure. It can be due to some other components in other areas of the set also being defective.

I had a similar problem. You likely have 1 or more bad capacitors on the power supply board. You can easily identify them - they have a raised or rounded appearance on the top instead of being flat. Remove the power supply board and take to electronics repair shop and have them replaced. The capacitors only cost me $4.24 for two. Now mine works fine. The repair man replaced them for free. It took him only 10 minutes to solder them on the board. Easy, cheap fix but manufacturer won't tell you that. I fixed this on 1-02-09. My 2 bad capacitors were "3300uf 10v" and I replaced with "3300uf 16v" but you might be able to replace with "4700uf 35 v" also.

You probably would want a qualified technician to take a look at it.

Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is with the power board or the main board and we’ll need to check few things. When you open the unit up; take a look at the power board-the board where the power cords/plugs goes into. You might see some filter capacitors a little bulged up in the top-If this is the case-this is your defective part(you can try to replace them-but some soldering equipment is needed). If not, then probably the main board has gone bad. This is the other board-where all the inputs are going into. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components. Please note that the TV components consists high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

The screen is unfortunately not replaceable as a spare part. It will continue to work until the damage grows from the inside of the screen. Unless you were lucky enough not to have cracked the protective inner screen, it will stay fine.

Power went off while watching t.v. Power came back on and now t.v.won't come on.

Was the TV plugged in to a surge protector?
It may be fried if there was a surge in power, sometimes there may be a fuse you can replace in the tv, other times the TV itself may be a goner, best to check with the company that manufactured it or the store where you bought it

The audio may be randomly disconnecting or something. I know that when my TV has no signal coming in, that it makes a bunch of loud static.
