Question about Olevia LT37HVS 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Static electricity I just purchased a 19" Philips HD TV and for awhile it worked well. Now, every few days, it wont turn on in the a.m., I have to unplug it for about 30 to 60 seconds and then replug it and it works again. I'm told this is due to static electricity! So far, it has happened about 3/4 times. Has anyone else heard of this?

It's at least conceivable; a long forgotten set we owned used to change channels on its own until I stumbled on to the reason for it and actually had to run a fine grounding lead to the safety ground on a wall outlet. Oddly enough, the static charge was not coming from us but from the high voltage of the set itself that was building up on some metallic trim around the set's channel selector.
If you have any trim of that nature on your set, use some styrofoam bits or onionskin paper and hold it near the trim to see if there is a charge on the set. It may require the same kind of 'fix' our old set needed.

You may have a bad, small signal board. Once in a while you may get a picture back....if the TV has been unplugged and plugged in after a few days.

My Philips 19pfl3403d/f7 wont turn on without unplugging first.


just call philips and they will send you a new t.v.! it isn't a recall, that would be bad publicity!! i spoke with a philips representative yesterday concerning my 'possessed' television. a gentlemen informed me that philips has a 'rapid replacement program' for the described 'possessed' t.v. set. simply provide model and serial numbers, time and place of purchase, then provide street address for fed-ex delivery. approximate time of arrival is 10-15 days. you are directed to package and return the old set to nearest fed-ex pick up site. i am super excited that i took the time to call philips support. i think that i spent a total of 10 minutes on the telephone; it was time well spent. oh yea, here's the number!

TV randomely turns off


it may just be a static buildup from the dust.
open the tv and blow it out with a air compressor.
if that doest not work then the circuit may be overloading.
remember it stores a charge for days.
