TV will not turn on!

I have a philips 17" LCD Flat TV, model # 17PF9936. Is there a bulb that I can replace, or any fuses that could be bad? Where might I find part numbers for replacement bulbs/fuses etc.?? Before tearing into this, I wanted to gain any advice possible, since I do not have any schematics or service manuals. I would appreciate any and all advice, Thanks!!

Re: TV will not turn on!

The part that went out on mine was a wire harness. And fixed it and now it works.

It will need parts or board repalcement.
Board is only $30,

If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for:

mcdevito75 here, Sounds like your moitor is burned out, I would take the monitor to a Staples, Radio shack and have it tested. Monitors are just like a light bulb and do go bad or burn out.

Screen is blank


The issue might be that your monitor is not getting enough voltage to turn on properly.

If the monitor is plugged into a surge protector, remove it and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the monitor works fine, the surge protector is not allowing enough power thru it for the monitor to work correctly - replace the power strip.

If there is no change, then your monitor is going out.
