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.

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

Sony trinitron tv


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, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Hitachi 28LD5200E will not turn on after long periods of time


There are various reasons for this. Moisture inside the TV, dry solder on boards, dry/leaky capacitors on the board etc. Try changing the power outlet and ensure that it is giving out the voltage required. If nothing works, better refer it to a qualified service technician.

Advent adv32l1 lcd tv when turned on red light flashes for ten minits then comes on


I have literally just diagnosed this fault on my own ADV32L1, except it took much longer to finally come on, upto 12 hours!!

On the PSU there is a a 330uf 10v capacitor which is failing. If you trace back the +5v SB (Standby) voltage from the 15 way power connector (not the 12) it is the first component you come to.

Symptoms were when plugged in the standby light would flash for an ever increasing amount of time, once the flashing stopped the TV would come on.

Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times


Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

LG 42in LCD Television - turning unit off


The amount of standyby power consumtion is minimal. The only way to turn it off completly is to disconnect the power from the TV. This will however increase your start up time when you want to use the TV.
