Question about Philips 55PL9223 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Flashing red light and shutting itself off

Philips 55PL9223/17 55inch Lcos rear projection. Only 2 years old, but out of warranty. When I turn on the tv, the amber light on the front glows, until it warms up (about 30 sec.) then turns green when it turns on. The front panel light will then start flashing red, and the tv will shut itself down. (protection mode?) I sometimes can unplug the tv, and let it reset itself, and then it will start all over again. Sometimes it will work for a day or so, and sometimes it will only last for a few minutes. I cleaned the filters on the bottom, but it did not help. It did not come with a stand, but sits on a flat wood stand, so I don't think I am blocking the two air vents. And I have it far from the wall so that would not be a problem. Since it is out of warranty, and there is not a Philips authorized repair center within a hundred miles of me, I am starting to wonder if I should just junk it and buy a new one. (Not a Philips model this time.) Any help would be appreciated. thanks

Actually, I was able to fix mine! It turned out it was some dust inside the TV. I just had to vacuum it out. There wasn't hardly any visible dust in there, but I decided to try as a last ditch effort. Did it about a month ago and haven't had any problems since... Just take out the 15 or so screws for the lower cover part on the back of the TV and vacuum it out carefully...

Power light glows orange for a minute then shuts down without ever having a picture or sound. I have replaced the lamp and clean the filters. This is a Philips Cineos Lcos 62 inch.

Watch at turn on to see if lamp fires up for even a second or two--if not either a ballast or the control that turns it on has detected another issue and is not allowing the lamp to come on.

Optical unit

I have the 52G786. These JVC HIDLA (LCoS) rear projection TV's are very trouble prone. Mine was in the shop 3 times in the first year. Now at three years old, the screen is getting dim then bright and flickering back and forth, but it's not the bulb.

You can now get a 50" 720p plasma for just under $1000, so that's the direction I am going. Fixing it is just asking to throw money out the door because it is likely to break again.

Bulb for Philips LCOS

$130 is a relative bargain - usually $450-$750 range - almost the entire cost of a projection TV is the bulb

Lamp will not light

At first i was thinking the ballast had gone bad but after reading a few other post i think it would be best to call pannasonic..
others forums read:
ballast had gone bad. Panasonic no longer makes these ballasts so mine needed to be rebuilt at the tune of $400.00.

With the ballast in place still nothing so now they claim that they need to order a "kit" from Panasonic which basically is all the components of my tv.

TV turns off

It sounds like you might either have a bad power cord or you might have an over heating issue. Some times the TV will automatically shut off if it senses a fan issue or it starts to overheat. What technology is your set? DLP, LCOS, DILA...? If its under warranty I'd suggest to get someone out asap to take a look at it.
