Dead TV - Please Help

Hello all, awesome site, hopefully some one can help me. I will be as specific as possible so you experts out there might be able to help. I have a 32" flat screen Philips CRT. The model number is 32RF52 and it was build in 2003. About 2 months ago the picture just went out while I was watching it, but the sound still worked. It would not respond the the remote or its own buttons. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, problem solved. A couple of days later, same thing. After about 3 times I had to unplug it for an hour or more before it would come back on. I have had to do this for 6 or 7 times now. Last night it went out and is not coming on anymore. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate all the help I can get, cant afford a new set. If you need any information I may have left out just let me know. Thanks

Re: Dead TV - Please Help

It is possible that there are failed components in the CRT bias circuits, or one of the scan circuits, or in the power supply, or in the high voltage section.

When any one of the areas fail, the set goes in to protect mode and biases off the CRT. If any of the other areas fail, the picture will also go black. In some models of TV sets, the sound is not critical of these areas that are mentioned here.

To fix this problem, proper troubleshooting of the set will be required. There are many components involved in the TV set that can cause failures to appear to be of this type.

You will have to have the set serviced by someone who is experienced and equiped to do TV service.

No Visual; Only Audio

No real specific suggestion but it's likely serious. Very likely in the hi-voltage section and quite possibly the flyback transformer; too expensive to bother with if so.

GE TV 31GT659 - is it Digital?

No, it's not digital. If she has cable service, however, it won't be a problem, come February 2009 as cable services are supposed to supply the ability to "convert."

Mitsubishi CS-40503

Just discovered last night that my set has the same problem, the TV is also about the same age. I can't find the manual but I was wondering if it might be fuse related, just don't know where that might be. I've had blown fuses before in circuits designed to protect the speakers so I thought this might be possible. I'm currently using my DVD/VCR which uses a surround sound system, to view TV with sound so I have to use VCR tuner.

I'm going to try to connect speakers to the audio out on back of the TV to see if it can drive external speakers.

Yeah I have a solution: I thought your site would offer basic guidance, but apparently not. I found better advice and specific guidance for free on the agoraquest dot com website. They have experts there who even told me right down to which chip pins should measure what voltage, and are willing to help people without trying to make a buck first. Thanks anyways and good luck selling something that's offered for free elsewhere!

Sony KV-32FS100 Needs a Part

Hi, An alternative, you might want to try to find a tech who is willing to stitch (hardwire) the board assuming of course that it is just PCB crack and no major components are defective/gone. Though this is labor intensive, it might be faster or while waiting for the replacement. Good luck.
