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.

Phillips/Mag Projection TV-9P5544C102 no pic/sound /pwr light on

John, my thoughts is something in the main power supply. I don't know what an opto chip is but I've heard of Optocupler IC's.
May be a good idea to give a call to some local TV Repair Shops especially ones that work on Philip's and see if you can speak with a tech to see what their thoughts are on what the problem is and what a repair cost may be.
The issue is one of hauling it to the TV shop or having them come out to you.

55'' philips rear projection turns on no video/audio. 9p5544c102

Try removing the two convergence chips from the board - then see if the TV powers on and lights up. If so you narrowed it down. If not - you have eliminated convergence IC problems.
