Question about Philips 26PF9966 26 in. LCD Television

Need to diagnose what board is bad on my 26pf9966/37 lcd tv

I am looking for an educated guess as to what board is bad based upon the flickering of the screen and the screen picture looking like a green sepia picture. I also need the parts list to order the stand bracket that mounts on the units back for the table stand. I have all the parts but the bracket that gets screwed into the back of the unit.

    I am a little upset. I paid 200 for an inverter for my Philips 26pf9966/37. It starts up fine then within 5 to 10 minutes it goes to the attached picture. Does anybody no from looking at this, what piece is failing. Also, after about 30 minutes on the screen goes back to normal and does not turn into thee picture below again.

Make sure that your input source cables are firmly secured. It almost sounds like a bad input connection that slips over time.

Laptop monitor bad color and flickers continuely, but when attached to external monitor, works fine

I'm going to take an educated guess here, because it sounds like the monitor's interface controller is bad. I forgot the name of the thing, but it's a small circuit board that's normally located at the bottom of the panel frame, between the flat ribbon cables and the round hinge cables.

Flickering tv

The set will need to be properly diagnosed to determine the cause. You could have a problem with the power supply board, inverter board, CCFL backlight that could be going out, or possible a main board issue. There are a variety of things that could cause this. You don't want to play the "guessing" game on this one. You also may want to google you TV model # and see if there is a history of this problem with your set. Most TV problems are redundant.

Main board is most likely but that is an educated guess--problem with all these is you can only check so many things and then have to guess and try a board.

Upper half of screen is flickering. Started last night. Appears to heat up and flicker. When I shut the TV down and let it cool off, flicker stops, but then starts again after the TV is on for a while. ...

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

More likely to be the backlight inverter board, or the main power supply for the inverter board is bad, power supply is easier to get to than the inverter board, so look there first. Look for burnt parts, bad capacitors.

Flashing light

Most likely it going to be a power supply related problem. The red blinking light is a code for a TV tech to diagnose the problem on the main power supply board itself or the board that regulates the power for the screen. Some manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board. A TV repair shop should be able to look at it for you and tell you which board is bad.

If all the voltages measure normal, the failure could be in the LCD's inverter board. I've checked the schematic and it seems like the 16 volts could be a bit higher, check the electrolytic capacitors filtering the voltage for the inverter board.
