SOURCE: I have a phillips tube t.v that shows a wavy horizontal line

If the set works fine intermittently it may be a loose connection or a bad solder joint. More likely the later. Heat will sometimes make a cold or broken solder joint work. If this changes when you lightly tap on the side of the TV you have a bad connection of sorts inside. These repairs can be expensive unless you find a good repair person.
The syncronizing signals in TV's (keeping the picture locked in) are around the high voltage transformer which is usually the heaviest component attached to the circuit boards. It's stressful over time and I've seen the solder connections crack and become intermittent.

I have seen this on mine. Check the cable going into your TV and make sure it is good. The ground portion of the cable could not be making a good connection.

SOURCE: Green screen, white lines. Audio fine.

You most likely have a bad picture tube. Green gun is shorted. Usually a set this size is not economically feasible to put a new tube in. You may also have a green drive problem on the CRT board. Have a shop check it out for you before junking it. Thanks for using fixya.

SOURCE: I turned on the tv it came on for about 5 seconds

It requires a professional repair, the problem lies either in the power supply section or the line output stage. There are high voltages present so unless you are qualified I would not open it. I would say that it is unlikely to be economical to repair , you might want to think about buying a flat screen led backlit model, and as a bonus you will save electricity too.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way.

Philips 27PT6441 27" TV Problem


jon5902,

Pls note that my experience is with the phillips 27" model27PT6341/07. It may not be the same board as yr model, as I can't remember nor find the service manual anymore. (browse around online for it though)

However, after taking the back off. Look close to the rca jack and svideo connection. Mine is located about an inch from the svideo connection.

Here are some pics that may help you.

The new one is the black and gold one marked 10uf 100v in the pic.
Other users have advised to go as high as 10uf 250v, to avoid having the cap overload again.

PS. I had the lines for about 2 weeks. They got steadily worse then one day my tv looked like it was broadcasting an hourglass. The lines converged in the center and flared outward (no pic).

Phillips/Magnavox 9P5544C102 white raster and shuts down


This denotes a problem called blooming the horizontal lines you see are called retrace lines this is caused by the increase in anode voltage which could be caused by an increase in HV section current which trips the overcurrent protection dircuit and turns the TV off.If you do not have electronics experience I would suggest taking the set to a TV repair shop.

White Screen w/ White Lines, Sound On, Turns off after 2 or 3 secs.


Hi If you mean thin white lines, this is is an indication of a problem in the Horizontal Drive ckt. most likely the Damper Diode has opened or shorted, this would cause the visual symptom and then the set would shut down, unfortunately this is a problem best left to a qualified technician to repair, hope this helps.

1.Are these lines only in the upper 1/3 rd portion of the screen?And is there a clear demarcation between this area and the lower portionb, where the image is perfect? 2.Or is thin Horizontal lines evenly spaced around an centimetre apart? If it is the first case, then there si a problem with your TVs SMPS. It is not generating the required regulated 110V required for the TVs functioning. If it is case 2, then there is a simple adjustment at the back - 'SCREEN'. This adjusts the Screen Grid Voltage, and by slightly lowering it, this problem will go away.
