Question about Philips 30PW633R 32" TV

1 Answer

Phillips TV not really turning on

This is technically two problems (could be related, I'm no expert). 1) Occasionally the screen will go wavy on me and make a high pitched whine. Annoying, but not life threatening, so to speak. I can be perfectly happy with the wavy if my next problem can be fixed... 2) This is the serious problem... now the TV won't turn on. The little green light will flash, and I hear click from inside the TV. Also, I hear the screen static up for a second. This happened once before and a few days later the TV worked fine again. It just happened again (been about 3 weeks since the last time) and I'd like to get to the bottom of this problem if I can. *Disclaimer* I have no clue about the inner mysteries of a TV set, so if you can, keep it simple. I can solder if I need to, just expain how and where as if I was a slow-witted four year old :) Thanks in advance!

You can try to check if these are a couple of bad solder joints on the board. You might have alot of dry joints. Take carethat the tv is unplugged and try it out. before starting, try shorting the pins of the largest capacitor in your tv set, to make sure you do not take an electric shock. Best Regards Patrick

Phillips flat screen tv left half of screen is black right side is dim and flickering


Is your tv less than a year old? You need to call Phillips and see if it is covered under warranty. If that is not the case you need to get a few estimates. You want to know if it will be cheaper to repair or replace your tv set.

Turn on tv screen is blank hear clickling noise


If the noise is louder appears as if sparking inside the set than turn off set as there may be leakage in the EHT (extra high tension transformer) which can be replaced by some technical expert,if the noise is not louder than there is failure of internal power supply,get it repaired by technical expert.

The screen is wavy when I'm looking at an on screen menu or there are words on the screen. Just wondering on how to fix the problem. Not really bad but just really annoying


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Green screen with red and blue wavy lines


This is "NOT" meant as "expert" advice...as this is not my area...HOWEVER...I see no one has answered this yet...AND I got some good help from here a year or so ago that worked for me!

When I had a similar "green screen" problem with my SONY projection tv...the guy helped me by having me make "MINOR" adjustments to the red/blue/green etc knobs behind the panel. These were three small black plastic pieces and needed less than a 1/16 of an inch adjustment...try adjusting one at a time and giving it few seconds after each adjustment. It worked for me..at least for a while (till my wife gave it away to a friend because it was "too big"...ah! women!!! LOL)...hope this helps. (NON-expert help!)
