Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

Philips 27PT6442/37 power

My TV randomly died about a month ago and I just got around to pulling it apart. I noticed a fuse was blown and after a little resaerch found that this is a common(extremely) problem with this model. I replaced the fuse with a 4amp 250v slow blow. Now I get power, but still nothing. I hear a series of high pitched clicks that sound like they are coming from a transformer. Philips technical support wouldn't even tell me what the error code(flashed by LED by power button) meant. 1 long flash then 5 shorter ones, if that helps. This set is under 2 years old, and should still be functioning. I would love to resolve the problem without spending the cost of a new TV in fixing this one.

Re: Philips 27PT6442/37 power

Sounds like you have a short in your power supply load. Probably the high voltage transformer and/or horizontal output transistor. Stargazer P.S. I've found that a lot of the newer sets are prone to high voltage transformer failure.

Lighting struck the apartment about a week ago, tv was plugged in when lighting struck apartment. Tv does not turn on anymore.

Best to take it to a repair centre as lightning damage can cause either minor fault such as an internal fuse blown or major problems that would make it uneconomical to repair. Ask for an estimate for the cost to repair.

RCA 32v430t Fuse Installation

This is a very simple fix. I bought fuses at Radio Shack and have to replace one every 6 months or so. Just lay the TV on a towel or something on its face. Pull the screws out of the back - all the way around the edge and a couple on the top of the input/output panel. Trace the power cord to where it attaches to the circuit board and next to it you will see the fuse.
Replace fuse, put it back together and it should work.

Hi there!

Dead short in the power supply, possibly the rectifier or the PTC has failed. PTC located in the Primary supply at the point where the coil around the tube plugs into the Main board. Two terminals to be exact. Normally cream in colour if it is an original Philips PTC. If the rectifier is short you may expect to have more items blown. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004

Fuse blown

the fuse will always blow if there is a shorted component. the horizontal output transistor may be the most likely culprit, if you are not a technician, have it service by a qualified one.
