Question about Philips 32PT543S 32" TV

3 Answers

Takes sometimes up to 7 times to get TV turned on and to stay on with a picture

Hi, when I try to turn the television on the picture does not come on the whole screen, usually off to one side and all wiggly and then it is like it is trying to get the picture properly and then the tv will just shut itself off. Then when you try to turn it on again it will either do the same thing with sometimes a little bit more of the picture coming properly and flattening out to look normal and then sometimes just the picture will go black with the power light will stay on. You have to do this sometimes up to 7 or eight times for the tv to have a proper picture and for it to stay on so that you can watch it. What could be wrong with my television and is this a costly repair or would I be better off to buy a new television?

    I have a Philips and the same thing is happening. I'm up to 4 times on/off before whole picture. It started about a month ago and has progressed. I'm wondering if it's cheaper to buy a new set instead of having it serviced.

As this fault is so predominant and appears to work eventually it would be worth contacting a service engineer as jomaru suggests. It is worhwhile disconnecting from mains etc. and removing the back to give it a good clean out with a long handled artists brush. You may find a slight burn indicating arcing or a burnt component. Check for bad soldering. The long wooden handle of the brush should prevent you from getting a shock, as there may still be a charge on some capacitors.

I believe you have a loose conection in the horizontal deflection circuit,a good place to start checking is the horizonatl driver transformer ,horizonatl output transistor and output transformer,one thing to try is taping on side of the set to see if it reacts and does something different,If you are familiar with tv service this information will give you a place to start but if you are not too familar see the assistance of a servicer,it should not be expensive.

My Phillips 42PF7320/79 Flat Panel TV won't turn on, screen stays black but green pwr light is on, after a lil while the green light flashes a couple of times then goes off itself completely


This idea may be worth a try. Look at the buttons on your remote. If you see a button that is marked "TV" give that button a push and then give the "Power" button a push. Wait for a while! sometimes this takes a while to turn the TV on or off. You may have to do this a couple of times depending if the power was off or on when you started doing this. If you started with the set off, sometimes it takes a while for the set to turn on.

TV will not start easily. Akai LCT2721AD


You only have to unplug it for 30 seconds. Also, make sure it does not have a DVD in it when you turn it off as the TV will try to default to the DVD all the time. Resetting the power (I use a surge protector) allows it to turn back on normally. Based on the comments I've seen this TV has terrible sound with DVD, doesn't want to turn on, and is hard to mount on a wall.

Lamp indicator blinks red


There is a problem with the lamp or around it? When it turns Orange, the lamp is at or near the end of it's life & needs replacing. What does the temperature indicator show? Orange, Red or Red Flashing? If not, then there is probably accumulated dust around lamp area
