Re: TV will not turn on unless unplugged and wait one...
Well, sounds like they may be changing the source from T.V. to HDMI or component/composit mode which is bassically for a C player or other connected source like a VHS or Xbox etc.
Allthough if this where the case, you should be able to use the remote to change the source back to the T.V. Antenna or cable if you have it.
WHen it goes blank or seems to be off, does anything you do turn it back on without having to unplugg it first?
If not, it could be bad, you will need to try hooking it up some where else for a while and test it without that person there and see if it the T.V. a bad outlet or the person is actually doing something.
If you think the T.V. is bad or faulty, at this early in its life, I would take it back under warranty before trying to fix it yourself.

Try unplugging all your tvs from mains and keep unplugged for a few hours. try to plug back in and attempt to turn on. See if this trick works. Likely there could be some internal damage in power supply or it could be fuses.
It is possible that your tuner module has some dry solder/weak joints that is causing the fault. Open as before and look into the board very carefully to see if there is any weak spot. Use a good solderring iron to touch up all the suspect areas but be very careful and do not try this if not familiar to solder as it might turn serious. Hence you can ask an electronic technician to check on this and solder up the chroma/processing stages and reset. If this does not solve the issue , the fault could be failure of the concerned IC. Confirm and replace carefully. Hope you get this right.Good day
I am a student, so like everyone we dont have money to buy a new tv and if there is an sollution for this problem we always want the cheapest one.
Well, i came up with one. At the back of the tv there are several air vents, so what happens, is that the heating coil of the tv does not heat up enough to start the tv. What you must do is take a hair dryer and set it to the heating option. Blow the tv at the back throug al the vents for about 30 to 60 seconds and try to put it on. I promise you this will work!
Please rate this sollution.
replace the lamps and then run the synch routine from the main menu. unfortunitly with the expense of the lamps and the low price to replace projection tvs it might not be worthwhile to fix but just replace.
HINT wait till after new years, LCD large screen tv sold about 35% of what was expected during xmas so they will be real real cheap after the 1st of the year
hdmi, S-video or jack are the most common cables delivered with the dvd, you can plug an amplifier between tv and dvd for a dolby system.
Turn on the DVD player, the TV and Set your TV on "AUX" or "Ext" with the remote.
Mine dead stopped turning on one day and I found the solution. You will
need a appropriate sized phillips scredriver, a head lamp or LED
keychain that you can aim from your mouth, a slim flat head screwdriver,
and some skinny needle nosed pliers.
-- unplug it.
-- Unscrew/remove the right side panel, on the side of the AC connector
(I don't advise opening the entire box as it was a bit hard for me to
get back together)
-- fire up your light source, you'll need it!
-- *looking at the now open unit form the open side* you will see the
green mainboard horizontally across the bottom.
-- *key in on the near right corner next to the small clear tube fuse*
-- the part that is having problems is the wire lead that has a small
white vertical plastic connector, (near right corner next to the fuse)
(it will probably have a white "tab" coming from the connector that is
slightly out of place)
-- take the needle nose pliers, gently grasping the plastic connector on
the wire side, and disconnect the wires from the mainboard connector.
(may help to use the slim flat head driver to help dislodge this).
-- once it is disconnected, use the slim phillips to realign that white
"connector tab" and slowly (making sure to not bend the pins) re-connect
that wire piece with the mainboard connector.
Plug the power in and try flipping it on. Hopefully this fixes it for
you. I have had to do this about every 6 months over this last year, but
its cheaper than buying a new card!
First, try resetting the TV by unplugging it for 30 seconds and replugging it.
Does the problem exist on both cable/sat and an external source like a dvd player/vcr?
Go to www.usasupport.philips.com and enter 60pp9200 as your model number - click on the link for the "Quick Start" Guide - read p 8 on manual convergence - if the manual convergence fails, then your convergence board is bad.
Are you connected using R,G,B (component) cables? Check them to make sure they are in firmly - if so, then try a new set - that may very well fix the rolling issue. (Unless the rolling is caused by poor antenna reception).
Press "Sleep" on the original remote control for this TV if you still have it until the TV says "Sleep OFF".
If no strong TV signal is detected, this unit goes into sleep mode, which may explain Tuner B shutting off after 5 minutes.
