Question about Philips 30PW9817 30" TV

1 Answer

TV keeps shutting off

Tv has occasional black outs but more importantly, it shuts off and there is a red flashing light instead of the green 'on light'. The tv does not respond to remote/manual control when this happens and the only temporary solution is unplugging it from the electric source (socket) for about a minute. What do I do?

Re: TV keeps shutting off

It sounds like you have a power supply problem. The power supply is going into "shut-down". When this happens you have to un-plug the set to allow the charge to "bleed off" from the power supply in order for it to try to re- start. You may have a loose connection or a component getting hot causing your problem. It's difficult to exactly tell what is happening without making tests in the circuits. Your best bet is to have it checked by a technician. Stargazer

Samsung model hlt4675sx\xaa projection tv wont work. the stand by/temp light flashes red and the lamp light flashes green? it makes the sound that it makes when it turns on but no picture. we looked at the...

It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

My display keeps shutting off five minutes after starting to watch TV- the sound continues, but the screen is black and the red warning light flashes


Please check the sequence in which your warning light flashes.

I will tell you what might be the problem according to the fashing of warning light,

Flashing repeatedly --- Improper voltage supply
Flashing once --- Malfunctioning of fan
Flashing twice ---excessive temperature
Flashing 3 time or more--other problem

When flashing occurs please remove the power cord from receptacle and inform your dealer about the flashing sequence.

Green light is flasing no picture

In most instances the flashing green (or red or other colors) indicates that the TV has engaged a "protection mode" that is to keep from causing further damage in the set.

There is one thing that you might try... Unplug the TV from the wall. Leave it unplugged for about ten minutes and then plug it back in. If this restores normal function then the microprocessor that controls your TV was confused by something usually a power spike or brown out.

If the set goes back to the same mode with the flashing light there is an internal defect that can only be corrected by a qualified Technician specializing in Televisions. There is a safety factor involved here that's why it has shut itself down in the first place

The TV started turning itself off occasionally a

Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

This may denote a proble in either your switching powers supply or your Horizontal section derived high voltage power supply. These are both very dangerous sections in your television. My next question is important; do you have a background in electronics? If not I would not advise you working on this problem yourself and that you take the TV to a repair shop for servicing. If you do have some background in electronics, I would like for you to make the following obeservations: What was the TV doing (it actions)prior to it going out? Did you hear any sounds before it went out like buzzing or crackling? What do you hear when you try to turn it on now, clicking? These questions are just to develop some background into what might be happening to your set. Thank you, Shuttle83
