Question about Philips 34PW9817 34" TV
IT'S A PHILIPS MODEL 32PT6441/37 TELEVISION.
IT SHUTS OFF FREQUENTLY BY ITSELF.
WHILE IT'S OFF IT FLASHES A GREEN LIGHT IN A SEQUENCE OF 1 QUICK FLASH ,1 LONG FLASH ,AND 11 QUICK FLASHES REPEATEDLY.IT TAKES AT LEAST 10 SECONDS FOR THE SCREEN TO APPEAR AFTER TURNING IT BACK ON. I'VE UNPLUGGED IT FOR 6 HOURS AND IT DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM.PLEASE HELP AS I'VE BEEN BORED ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY COUNT THE BLINKS.THANK YOU!
Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, [Exclude the model number] in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

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

I fixed this very problem several times on this set. You must check some parts and, if bad, replace them correctly and safely. I can tell you what to look for for a small cash fee, but I don't know how this works on this site.

The led code indicates vert failure for one. ( 3 blinks )
The 2 blinks indicates excess beam current of which could be your picture tube or re-adjusting the G2 voltage on the HV transformer which is very critical on philips sets.

This is a well known and very common problem with all Philips plasma tvs 42 and 50 inch. The problem is they used under rated capacitors in the power supply. If you have electronics experience or a friend that is, remove the cover and look in the back for malformed or leaking capcitors. Replace them and see if that takes care of the problem. The caps only cost $2 or $3 each, so the cost to try this is pretty reasonable although you might have an added cost of buying beer for your electronics friend. If this does not fix your problem you are down to replacing boards that can be purchased around $300 ea.
I have found my set will come on "finally" after I get the back of the set warmed up and the bad caps finally charge up. Hope this is useful.
