Cannot find MSRP for Philips 50P8341A bought at Walmart in 2004

My house was struck by lightning and fried my Philips 50P8341A. My insurance company won't pay for the set unless I can provide them with a MSRP. Walmart, where I bought the set, WILL NOT help.

    you should have that info in your paper work from when you you bought it ,so check that to see if it is in there , in 2004 the msrp would have been different then now so you will need to call phillips to find out the msrp for that year , if you don't find it in your paper work

    Effectively you have to contact Philips to get the MRSP, not Walmart.

    If you are in US, contact Philips here: Philips Consumer Care.

    Tried calling Phillips they here no help, did you charge this TV, your credit card company will have records, $1600 is what the seller of a used TV like yours claims as the new price for the item, perhaps the insurance will just replace it with a like sized set, I have done this with property claims I have had.

Need a downloadable manual for this piece. Lightning struck house now have a fried part...


What model TV is it from ? The Powers Supply schematics are usually found in the TV service manuals. The information in the service manuals is very limited and you most likely won't be able to get a full schematic of the PS.
Alternativly buy a replacement board. They seem to be widely available.

It may be the cost effective answer as service manuals are quite often, not cheap.

When tvs are struck by lightning most of them are beyond repairs and if successful they always give problems in the future.

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

My home was struck by lightening and my 48 inch HD tv is not working but makes a strange noise. I need a repair person to give me an estimate for a repair or replacement for my insurance. can you help?


I have worked on many televisions in my time and have yet to bring one back to life after a lightning strike.
My best suggestion is to get a quote from a local servicer and get a replacement from the insurance company.
If you need any further help please reply to this post.
I hope that this helps you with this issue.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Philips model 50P8341A bought from walmart in late 2004


those are the fuses, often voltages will remain present after unplugging the set. That model is famous for the LSB board being defective. You can get new LSB boards at the following link. You can leave a email if your not sure which one you need for your model.
