Philips 34PW9817 34" Shouts off and red light continuously blinks

You will be watching TV and it just turns itself off and the red light continuously blinks. The only way I have been able to get the TV to come back on is to unplug the TV and count to 10 and plug it back in.

Re: Philips 34PW9817 34" Shouts off and red light...

I am having the same problems with my 34PW9817. I spoke with someone at a Philips service depot today regarding the problem and they suggested that I unplug the unit and leave it that way overnight. The tech told me that more often that I would expect, this solution fixes the problem. They mentioned something about this allowing the microprocessor to reset itself. If that doesn't work then I am supposed to expect a repair of between $210 and $265 for problems relating to the power supply. The backlog on getting the unit in and out of the service depot is about 5 days for my area (Denton, TX). I am planning to try the reset tonight but do not expect this to really do much. The problem didn't start until my last move (San Antonio -> Dallas) and other than this, I have had excellent service and picture quality out of the unit. Will update this post after I rectify the problem. David

Hi there, If the tele has been on for some time so that it has finished warming up inside and then shuts off, it could be an overheating problem. If the tele switched itself off radomly after switch on from cold, then there may be a dodgy connection or component. If you are familiar with what circuits are in this tele, especially the high voltage ones, try using a freezer spray, if you can locate the circuit which controls fault diagnosis. Make sure any fans are running, if there is one, and that dust has not built up on hot components. Lastly, if it is a regulator problem, I would have thought you would see other symptoms, such as a distorted, changing picture at irregular times, followed eventually by shut down. Good luck.

Sounds like you have a power supply problem. Possibly the regulation circuit.

My magnavox tv model num 50mf231d137 will not turn on it turns on then turns off with red light blinking

How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON? Count it carefully. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information

Philips 29pt828c/25 crt tv won't turn on, the red standby light is constantly flashing. Have unplugged and left for days and then switched on it powers up, get picture and sound and then say 4mins later it...

The flashing light indicates a fault. These flashes are called blinking codes. Count the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON. Counting of blinks to Philips is not done directly. It is a sort of coded. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. Counting procedure to Philips TVs is given in detail. Please keep some time with the instructions. It will be somewhat seem difficult to anybody who doesn't know anything electronics.

Red stand by light blinking continuously black screen

It cannot be reset fully unless it comes on and stays on (the model you have listed here.)

That set should have a blink error code--watch the red power light to see if blinking in a number sequence like 7blinks pause and repeats over and over.

My 36" Flat-screen CRT Philips TV turns itself off

I'm getting the exact same thing with a 26" model. First I found AV2 started carrying AV1's input so we put a switch in. Then it starts to shut off with the twice blinking light after viewing the scart input for a while. I'm currently trying feeding it scart set to composite rather than RGB to see if it'll stay on. One other thing - I just got a oneforall remote. I don't suppose you did - in case that is triggering something?

People are reporting a fault with the "painter" chip which is terminal usually. But that seems to manifest as the tv switching to scart input spontaneously. I haven't seen that.

Hope you get somewhere - I'll let you know if I find anything.

A qualified tech will need to practice visual acuity technique! Look at power supply circuit for signs of stress,dis-coloration and/or bad connects.Check for bad 47mf/25v cap in area of stress.Replace BC-327-25 xistor w/BC-328 and replace BC-337-25 w/BC-338,if present in your set's chassis style.
