Question about Philips 36PT842H 36" TV

1 Answer

Power problem i dont know if this is the exact model that mine is, it looks really close, but its a 27 inch screen. but anyway i tried to turn my tv on one day, and it made the noise of it turning on, but then no picture nothing not even the little green light to tell me the tv is on, so i kept on trying and i woudlnt get anything not even the sound, so i looked at the power cord and noticed that the tv was sitting on the cord and had made little dents in them, but its nothing to serious so i dont think the cords are the problem. i have no idea whats wrong with this tv, any help would be much appreciated.

If you don't have any indicators working, you have probably lost your power supply. With no picture and no sound the chances are you have either lost the power supply or blown a fuse. If you remove the cover and look at the circuit board there is a fuse located near the rear of the chassis near where the power cord connects to the chassis. If the fuse is blown, it is advisable to replace your damaged power cord before replacing the fuse. The cord could have a short and this could create a fire. Be very careful when working on any television. Be sure it is unplugged for more than one day to allow the high voltage to decay from the picture tube. Do not touch the picture tube, it still may have some residual voltage and could shock you. If you replace the cord and fuse and still have the same problem, you will probably find that the high voltage transistor is bad and needs to be replaced.

Philips 27PT6441 27" TV Problem


jon5902,

Pls note that my experience is with the phillips 27" model27PT6341/07. It may not be the same board as yr model, as I can't remember nor find the service manual anymore. (browse around online for it though)

However, after taking the back off. Look close to the rca jack and svideo connection. Mine is located about an inch from the svideo connection.

Here are some pics that may help you.

The new one is the black and gold one marked 10uf 100v in the pic.
Other users have advised to go as high as 10uf 250v, to avoid having the cap overload again.

PS. I had the lines for about 2 weeks. They got steadily worse then one day my tv looked like it was broadcasting an hourglass. The lines converged in the center and flared outward (no pic).

It sounds like you may have the closed caption banner turned on. This is for text notifications that some stations use for messaging about such things as programming info, sports scores, or weather forcasts, and or etc...

Refer to the user manual of the TV set, or explore the menus to see how to turn off the closed captioning options.

The black box your are seeing on the screen is the box to display text. It is listed under your "cc" closed captioning setting as T1, T2 etc. Go into your closed captioning and shut off the text. You can still leave closed captioning on or off. The text system was never really used but they put it on all of the TV's.

Sanyo TV stretches outwards and shakes


If the picture is closing (top to bottom) and goes back to normal when you hit it you probably have a bad solder connection on IC501 (location number) the vertical deflection IC on a metal heat sink. If you mean outwards as in side to side as it looks in the picture, I don't know specifically where to solder but get a magnifying glass and look for suspected bad solder connections. Look for the word width if it is there. It is good that you a confident in soldering.
