Question about Philips 60P8341 60" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Powers off by itself.

TV shuts off by itself. Sometimes I can turn it back on. It will stay on for 5 min./10 min. / 1 hr. /2 hrs. (one never knows). I have to unplug it from the wall and wait 30 min. to 2 hrs. and then we go through the cycle again.

Re: Powers off by itself.

Has anyone gotten a resolution for this the only answer I saw was the SSB Board. Is there a cheap place to get parts. Philips model 50P8341 goes off by itself also wont come back on if you unplug it for a while it will come back on.

Re: Powers off by itself.

The TV you have is known for having a defective SSB board. This board is located on the left side of the TV chassis and sits in a upright(verticle)position. The dimensions of this board are roughly 4" X 5". It also has a plastic support lever that sits on top of the board. You should be able to lift this lever with one hand and use the other to unplug the SSB board if you are replacing it. Not sure what the latest prices are but it would not surprise me if this board is on back order.

Re: Powers off by itself.

Power supply or sweep suppys have parts that are overheating and breaking down or cold solder connections. Call someone who knows this set like the local authorized magnavox/Phillips dealer/servicer. Good Luck

you can do a self-diagnosis test by pressing the menu and input/device button on set for 5 sec and see what error code it gives you. Count the blinks followed by a short pause then more blinks. This is the error code.

TV just shuts itself off after 1/2 hr to 2 hrs ...

resolder the horizontal driver transformer and all of the coils that start with "L77xx" on the left side of the sweep board, there is also a jumper staple just above L7711 that must be soldered it does not have a designation number but you`ll see the solder is bad on one end, very common issue with your model.
