Question about Philips 32PW6506 32" TV

1 Answer

TV will not switch on

Recently the TV began to take an increasingly long amount of time to switch on. When turning it on from standby, the picture would flicker on for a few seconds (usually quite distorted), then turn off again. The TV would gradually turn on for longer at each attempt, until eventually it stayed on. However, now it has given up completely. When switched on at the front of the unit, all that happens is a chirping noise from inside, and no picture. When it is turned off at the front of the unit, the chirping noise gradually subsides. Any ideas at all? Seems to me like it may be a power supply issue perhaps, but then again I could be completely off the mark. Thanks in advance.

Re: TV will not switch on

It sounds like you may be on the right track. Also you could have a problem in your Horizontal Deflection circuit. Since you say it flickered, you may have a solder joint that was arcing. Probably in the horizontal circuit. I found a capacitor which was arcing in this circuit. I was a small disk type. NOW since it is chirping, the horizontal output transistor may have shorted placing too much of a load on your power supply. The noise you hear is the power suppply trying to start. Stargazer

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

Sony Wega kv27FV310 standby flashes 2 times with no picture or sound

3 years ago, i had the same problem with a samsung 36", when i switched it on it would stay on for around half an hour, i tried to switch on straight away, but it wouldnt, i had to leave it for an hour or so, then it would stay on for about 5 minutes. And the same thing the next day (half an hour then 5 minutes). I left it into the repair shop, it had to get a circuit board replaced at a cost of £315, dont know how much it will cost to get fixed now, as i could buy the same tv for a little over that now.

Sony Trinitron color TV model no. kv-27v22

dear, you can check that transformers out put before connecting to a tv. also when its connected to a tv.
get a avo meter and connect in series with a tv.
observe the current on the intial switch on and when the picture goes. if you notice that current on intial switching is high and then it starts going lower and lower, then change the transformer.
but if the current starts going up from the intial current then check the power supply components of the tv.
thanks for asking fixya.

If the standby light is blinking 5 times then repeating, it is likely a problem in your picture tube or related circuitry. Other possibilities include the "Jungle" IC which takes care of the video, chroma and deflection processes and is a bear to replace. Either way, it could be an expensive repair.
