Hello sportylakey,

I would suggest first that you have a technician come over and troubleshoot your problem to determine which stage of the TV is malfunctioning. Then If you want you can have the technician repair the problem or swap out the board. This believe it or not is the cheaper option. I know that today a lot of people think that board swapping is the best thing, but in reality it's just a time consuming object lesson in futility, because you never know if you have fixed the problem or just bought more time. In any event try the option above, and if that is not to your liking try to send the boards to Contact them to discuss your options on sending them the boards.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Need to find power supply for 32mf231d

Earl, First, let me ask you...are looking for the power supply or the signal board? The reason I ask, the product shown, is the signal board. In some cases a bad power supply can ruin the signal board.You will know this when examining the signal board (will be burned). But you ask for the power supply. This power supply is difficult to find, that is why you ask to locate one. You may have already checked with shop So, lets ask for a rebuilt power supply. Call Union Electronics at 1 800 648 6657. Call Andrews electronics at 1 800 274 4666. These places will rebuild or exchange boards. Have your TV model number and if you can the power supply in hand with the part number. The part number is on the board,, with white tape (will start with 313#). Another thing to try, is to locate a TV Repair shop. They may have a salvage area with a working power supply. As to say the same TV with a shattered screen etc. Thanks for asking me Earl....good luck, Matt.

No picture. Red light bottom right corner flashes rapidly three times, pauses, and repeats. continuously

Hello maryconroy8,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: The light you see blinking, is actually the TV sending out an SOS code.
In most cases this SOS code means that the main board has died. But without knowing the Make and Model of this TV, it is hard to just assume this is the case.
You will need to take this TV to a local TV Repair shop and have the Power supply board and Main Board tested for issues and/or replacement.

Have a great day!

Philips 50P8341 50 in. No picture,no sound and chirping noise. What could this be? Thanks.

Problem is on the middle (main/deflection) board. The chirping is a sign of shutdown, a short usually there. It can be a transistor or capacitor but someone with knowledge needs to get at the board and test things for a short.

Let me know if I can help--this is not a set for a novice to work on; rather difficult to into service position--do not attempt to remove center board--there is a better way.

In the shop I work for several techs refuse to work on these sets and I as a result have worked on a lot of them. I am a hired gun for them on certain sets.

Let me know if you have questions and if I told you something you did not know please rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Big screen tv. led turns on but no picture.Then tv turns off on its own. Need a ruff estimate on cost to fix.

Your TV has a power supply problem. The power supply board is not sending the correct voltage to the video board so the protection circuit shuts it down. The power board can be replaced or rebuilt. Most repair shops will replace it.
I have repaired many of these. Usually it involves new capacitors and fuses. 
I would guess a shop is going to charge $150-$300 to fix this.

My philips 50p8341 beeps then flashes the red led 4 times

4 Blinks means that an incorrect voltage had been detected on the +5V circuit coming from PSU to digital control board.
The PSU must be tested and eventually repaired or replaced.

Convergence board

There is no substitution part for the entire board in that unit, but my question is why are they having to replace the entire board - did it burn?? How about just sending it in to PTS Electronics and having the board rebuilt??

My phillips 5o inch rear projection tv

I'd really like to see what you're describing here, but it sounds as though the SSB (small signal baord) is failing, Philips p/n#Ph3912725871 It's a vertical board on the left side viewed from the rear of the unit. It's clearly one for the shop... Good Luck Bill
