Re: Philips HDTV

I have the same problem.. looks like I'm in for it. after spending all this $ on a new TV (bought in Dec 2005) The cycling off and on was finally diagnosed as a "bad" Y board and power supply (apparently a common problem with this particular model) If you are in warranty, please don't delay and get them to fix the problem.. If not, be prepared to pay over $1,000 to fix the problem.

42" philips plasma

when a television turns off by itself and flashes as you say, it indicates that there is a problem inside the tv. If you keep trying to turn it on you may do more damage. It could be something as simple as a faulty fuse inside. If you have no expierience with electrics I suggest you get it checked out by a professional. I had a similar problem with another tele model and it was the fuse in the back of the tele that needed changing. I did try to this on my own but unfortunatley didn't have the right fuse so i took it to a repair shop and he done it really quickly.

Tele will not stay on

I just started having this problem myself.
Try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes, plug it back in and turn it on. This worked for me and so far it's still working.
Someone said this is a "cold reset" and works for a number of problems.

Good Luck.
