Question about Philips TS2754C 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture vanished My wife and I were watching tv one night and the bottom say, third of the screen became 'cramped', or compressed towards the center, leaving a black band on the bottm of the screen. After a while, it went back to a full screen, we thought it was the cable company. Happened again the next day, except a greater portion of the screen was affected. We tried changing channels, thinking again it was just a signal issue. After a change or two the full screen would return, but go back to the compression after a couple minutes. Same thing happens if we turned it off and then back on: full screen then compression. Later that day, the image vanished entirely, like it was turned off, only with sound and power still on. Any suggestions?

Re: Picture vanished

The problem might have started because of loose conections in the vertical circuit,if the vertical circuit fails completly the screen blanks out to prevent a line being burnt in the picture tube so that part is normal but the problem is still in the vertical circuit.Maybe the IC just went bad all the way and it might have taken a fusible resistor. If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer,is a straight forward problem and it should not be expensive.Let US know how it goes or if you need more information.

Hi my name is jeremy snow and i have recently had problems with my sony trinitron xbr 1997. lately the picture like scrunches up into the top of the screen and the tv just goes black and now like sometimes...

You have two problems. Dry joints causing the no picture and capacitors causing the frame cramping.
A 680uF 35Volt capacitor will fix the frame cramping and re soldering underneath almost everywhere will solve the intermittant picture fault.

I have a JVC tv only 1 year old and the picture is getting dark.

Sorry to tell you but JVC is a well-known un-reliable brand and if it's cheap, probably even worse. U may have screen burn from leaving a games console on while plugged into the tv, even if its not showing the game, it will burn it onto the screen. :(

The screen picture bulges inwardly on the right and the left

you have defective horizontal linearity! replace the capacitor at the hot side mostly 160uf 180V or 160uf 160V.

The bottom third of the screen is black and the rest of the picture is scrunched up. it is a part failure so not possible to adjust it. as it has developed watching tv so it is a part failure in vertical section. in vertical section there is a feed back is due to electrolytic capacitor (most probably)or any other component but in feed back ckt. it is a common failure it is not major problem.can be rectified at your place with in no time by a skilled tech.

Brightness of picture

If you feel good about opening your set then you can try this: Look for the flyback (high voltage) transformer, with the thick red wire which goes to the top of the picture tube. There are 2 controls on the flyback transformer, focus (top) and screen (bottom)Turn the brightness and contrast all the way down and then increase the screen control until you see retrace lines, and then back it down until those lines just vanish. Return the brightness and contrast to normal and adjust the focus control, if necessary, for a nice sharp picture. Let me know if that brings your brightness back.

Bowlike effect convergence all screwwed up

I suspect you originally had an intermittent solder connection on the convergence circuit board. This may have damaged the convergence IC's on that board by now if repairing those connections doesn't fix the set.
