Question about Philips 28PW6506 28" TV

1 Answer

Philips 28PW6506 Hi, recently my tv was making funny noises, like a squealing. The picture starts to dissappear with a horizontal line. When i switch the set on now i get no power to the tube, but a component near the front of the chassis board is making the squealin noise. The noise goes up and down, once the power is switched off it sounds like it is being drained...Any help would be much appreciated............Jason

Re: Philips 28PW6506

This sounds like one of the capacitors has dried out. They are metal cylinders containing 2 rolled up strips of foil separated by a gel. Over time the gel can dry out an eventually the strips of foil touch creating a short circuit. A TV repair shop should be able to replace the faulty component relatively easily. I wouldn't recommend trying to do this yourself unless you are very confident you know what you are doing, the voltages present in a CRT TV are very dangerous.

My TV keeps switching its self off, it makes a clicking noise as if its trying to switch on. Then cuts out.

Do to the clicking noise your tv makes is a very common idicator that your power supply in the tv is failing. Its an easy fix lots of DIY videos on youtube but may cost you a arm.

High pitch

I have never heard a tube make noise when there is a good picture. Anyway, the noise has to be a transformer ringing or oscilating. They make a high pitched squeal when they have a loose winding or their cover is loose. You probably won't be able to feel or see anything loose on these transformers The power supply switching transformer is the first to look at. Take a hot glue gun and just cover the thing...especially at the base of it. The next (and only other) one is the horizontal drive transformer.It is located close to the high voltage transformer( biggest thing on board and usually in back or corner of the PCB.This one wont squeal) The horizontal drive transformer is about the size of a large marble and is encased in a black plastic cover. Cover it with hot glue also.
If you take the back off you will probably be able to localize where the squeal is coming from. You will probably need a signal to hear the noise also. After you find where it is coming from UNPLUG the set before doing any hot gluing!!!!
If you 're not up to this procedure take it to a technician. Your tube is not going bad and the set is definitly worth repair. Simple fix!! Good Luck!!

Green horizontal lines

Hi, I have a Philips 29PT9009/12 TV. Recently I have begun to see horizontal green lines on my tv, when either watching a dvd or watch tv. This has gotten worse and now the green lines are more visible and the background is now turned a shaded green. Please help me. Thanks in advance

TV will not switch on

It sounds like you may be on the right track. Also you could have a problem in your Horizontal Deflection circuit. Since you say it flickered, you may have a solder joint that was arcing. Probably in the horizontal circuit. I found a capacitor which was arcing in this circuit. I was a small disk type. NOW since it is chirping, the horizontal output transistor may have shorted placing too much of a load on your power supply. The noise you hear is the power suppply trying to start. Stargazer
