Question about Philips 26PF5320 26 in. LCD Television
There is a get around for this fault if you locate panel v26c look at the bottom rh corner you will find 2 test points tp11 and tp 12 if you then look on the rhs of the lcd panel actualy mounted on the side (you will have to remove the metal frame from around the screen ) you will find another panel with 2 more points tp 506 and tp507 simply solder a wire link between tp11to tp506 and another from tp12 to tp507 and that should be a permanent fix to this problem

Assuming this is a flat panel LCD TV, most often, this symptom is a result of a failed POWER SUPPLY circuit board inside your set.
One quick way to test this is to remove the rear access panel on the TV and check the power supply circuit board for any scorched / bulging / leaking electrolytic capacitors. If you see any evidence of this, then replace the power supply circuit board with a new one, since this is the most often the source of the trouble. The fact that your TV was actually smoking means the damage should be obvious and the problem area relatively easy to spot.
Here are a few link to images which show what faulty capacitors often look like:
You can usually find replacement supply circuit boards online by searching for your TV's model number either on EBAY or at an online parts supplier.
Here is a link to one normally reliable online parts supplier, although as you can see, they do not currently have that power supply circuit board in stock:
Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.
The repair / replacement procedure is not extremely difficult if you have some basic electrical safety knowledge and some basic electronics / mechanical repair skills.
You will need to unplug the power cord from the unit, lay the TV screen side down on something soft and flat like a bed if necessary, and then remove the rear access panel or the entire rear cover as required in order to access the circuit boards inside.
When you remove the rear cover and access the circuit boards inside, just check the part number that is printed right on your circuit boards and confirm that they exactly match the ones provided in the online listings. Also make sure that any part you order is labelled "TESTED WORKING" in the condition description. Any part with a condition description of "AS IS" is probably faulty itself as well.
Then unclip and remove the various electrical wire connectors leading to the power supply circuit boards. Then remove the screws securing the circuit board to the TV frame and then remove the power supply circuit board. Be sure to avoid touching any large capacitors on the circuit board which can retain a nasty charge even after the unit is unplugged.
Then just screw in the new circuit board and connect all the wire bundles to their appropriate connectors on the new circuit board and then replace the rear cover. Then plug in the power cord and test.
