Question about Philips 28PW6006 28" TV

1 Answer

TV goes to standby without touching it

I have a problem with the TV going to standby on its own. This gets worse later in the day so it may be an overheating problem. At its worst point the screen goes red before the set goes to standby. It can always be switched on again from the remote. Can anyone help with this problem

Re: TV goes to standby without touching it

Soounds like the typical cold or bad solder connections somewhere in this set on the printed circuit board. Not the ez fix for a consumer. Must know how to solder and test solid state electronics

Picture goes to high green with retrace lines that shows picture tube is defective and requires replacement.
Usually in above symptom, TV goes to standby mode and standby light blinks when green raster problem occurred.
New TV is better option because picture tube of KV-34XBR960 would not be available any more.

Tv keep going on standby when you turn it on

tv goes into standby all the time if a power supply is not fine, what happens is that a power supply produces two voltages, one small one powers a standby components and bigger voltage powers a line transformer which later produces more small voltages,
then later cancels the first small voltage.

chec your power supply semi conductors like, transistors, diodes and small value resistors, on your power supply. some power supply uses a IC to oscillate a ht. so check a supply at a w/shop.

Standby/stereo light blinking no picture or sound

My picture would go out after several minutes but I still had sound. I took the rear cover off and blew all the dust off with compresed air.I did this for a few times over several days nothing happened.I also took off the rear circuit board that attaches to the tube with a round pin socket and blew that with compressed air and put it back on. The TV has now worked for two days without the picture going out. It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My TV is 9 years old.

Sony tv wont turn on, standby light just flashes

I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.

Flashing screen

The power compensator IC is bad along with most likley the main board. This is going to be an expensive repair. If the warranty expired in January, and you were in touch with them about then and they did nothing, you should try to fight with them. They may send out a repair person to get your set working again. Another possibility would be, if you have homew owners insurance and a tech can say that the problem was due to a power surge, the insurance will take care of part of the repair bill. Good Luck

The flashibg red light

John, I do not know of a code, but it is a good idea in the design to have several goes at starting a circuit, before completely shutting it down. Oscillators are supposed to self start due to noise generated. Some electronic circuits require a reset pulse to be generated before the start up is allowed. The reset circuit may not be generated if the set is turned on again too soon, so it will stay in standby. This may normally be a few minutes to 30 minutes so it seems something in your set is faulty and could get worse. Try a test run with the back off and clean it out of dust with a long brush to keep it cooler. Make sure little fingers cannot get near it. Look to see if anything is obviously overheating.
