Question about Philips 27PT5445 27" TV

Open Question

Philips TV shuts down when turned on.

My TV is only 8 months old and it keeps shuting off because it loses it's memory and keeps thinking the channels are blocked. It therefore shuts off immediately when it is turned on. I can only use Philips Service Centers and they want me to pay $60.00 to pick it up! Philips should pay for it all (I don't drive). Not even a year old and want me to pay more! INTERESTING Fact: if you look at sites like Cox Crow, you will be amazed how many complaints about Philips there really are. Cox Crow site alone has 219 complaints dating back to 2004. They (Philips)should not be allowed to get away with this. these problems are not only this model TV so BEWARE. I want to expose them for what they really are. I could use some support if it is out there. Maybe we akk coukld get refunds.

SOURCE: Philips 27 inch TV - Model # 27PT543S37A - Keeps going off!

Solution #6 is the right solution. I did this repair. I'll share some stuff he left out. If you can still get the TV to work, and it's not at complete failure, the capacitor at 2455 is the only thing that needs to be replaced.

I got the capacitor at Radio Shack, and they still sell them. You want a radial lead 47microfard or 47uf 35v polarized capacitor. The one I bought was mostly blue with a thin black strip in line with one of the leads. I'm not electrical in anyway so I spend a lot of time trying to figure out what this meant.

The capacitor in the TV was mostly black with a grey strip. I oriented my mostly blue one so that it's black stip was in line with the existing one's grey strip during replacement.

It was $1.49 in parts and less than a penny in solder. The hardest part was removing all the screws. You need an allen wrench to do do it.

Channel 7 states it is showing The Chase today 12May but TV Guide when pressed does not show any The Chase

Shedules change I would think plus I would think an element of lazy and bone idle is creeping in, saw it in the early colour TV years when Teletext made its debut. At first hailed as a breakthrough for information and updates of all sorts, later it began to break down as more and more data was loaded on and tired little backroom workers could not keep up with changes!
Now its data plus so many channels, on earlier digital equipment (starved of cpu speed and memory for cost) it used to often update this data very quickly, as more channels grew it became an anchor slowing equipment down. Now I see some sets do not update as often or only when a user requests it (while you wait) just to keep that set working in other functions plus to save energy and make it look good.
I would think this problem will get worse as more channels are added and schedules checked or altered before release along with the fact they are possibly broadcast in bursts not as a constant stream (no doubt some techy can verify this) otherwise it would use up limited resources.
No doubt there will be a new version created like the old TV's Fasttext service, most written listings are to me only a guide as to what might be shown not set in stone as they very long ago once might have been.
Sorry if this is not what you expected.......

The main system memory IC to your TV is faulty. It should be replaced. It is a very small IC, having 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control IC.

Philips Magnavox 32MT3305 keeps shutting off with relay clicking. The green power light stays on but the picture and sound go out right after the orange status bar goes away. If the channel up or down...

the relay is the safety protective device..sometimes a defective component or something. maybe an overloaded power supply might caused this before any thing could gets worst..the relay will shut the unit..

TV keeps shutting off and changing channels

hide all your remote controlls and put some tape over the front cover of the tv where you think the remote control reciever may be , if this fixes it then it means something is amiss with a rogue remote , most likely batterys..could even be sunlight ??

How do you reset forgotten parental control password?

You can try these codes 2211 or 3308 if they do not work you will need to reset the unit. You will need to unplug it for 45 minutes that will reset the TV to factory settings. Then the pass codes I provided should work.
