Instructions

    • 1
      Unplug the power cable if the TV is having issues turning on or off. To reset the electronics, it is important to not only unplug the power cable from the outlet, but also to unplug it from the TV. Wait a few minutes for the power to drain from the TV and then plug the cable back into the outlet and TV. A TV that is not working may not be getting enough power. Try plugging the TV into a different outlet or use a different power cable. Tweets, flashes, clicks and flashing pictures are all signs that the TV is not getting enough power.

    • 2
      Check that all cables are plugged into the proper positions and are secure. Normally if there is a problem with the picture, but not the sound, or vice versa, then a loose cable is the cause. If you have spare cables, replace the cable to check if it is the cable that is the problem and not another component of the TV.

    • 3
      Change the batteries if the remote is not working properly. Reset the remote by removing the batteries and then pressing the buttons and holding them down for 30 seconds. Then install new batteries. If you use rechargeable batteries, let them charge for at least 6 hours.

    • 4
      Adjust the brightness, contrast and color settings. Many times when the color is funny or suddenly becomes unrealistic, readjusting the picture settings is an easy way to bring the picture back to normal. Adjusting the focus is an easy way to deal with a lack of sharpness in the TV picture.

    • 5
      Check the orientation of the monitor if the picture is not straight. Any sources of a strong magnetic field can also alter the orientation of the picture. Some TVs may also have an external tilt control that can be adjusted. If the TV has been jarred or knocked about, then the internal or external tile knob may have been knocked out.

    • 6
      Run an internal diagnosis on the TV. This internal diagnosis is normally found within the TV menu. It can be called different names depending on the manufacturer. The TV will check all functions and hardware. If a problem is detected, then a specific code is displayed on the screen. Write down the code and call the manufacturer. The manufacturer will be able to decipher what the code means and let you know what is causing the problem.

I have this Phillips Wide Screen TV that didn't have or come with a remote, so I had to go out and buy a universal remote for it today from a BIG W Store. I'm having some technical difficulties & problems with switching and turning it on, but as I use the universal remote to turn on the TV, I'm having a bit of a slight problem with it turning it on, Ok, Yes, it works and Powers on, but there is nothing showing or giving me the indication that there is no picture or sound showing up on this Wide Screen Phillips TV, But there is a little red & green light at the bottome right hand corner that keeps on flashing red when ever I use the universal remote to switch the power on. Is there a possibility, that i can get some help on here, to help me out with any suggestions, is to why I'm not getting any picture or sound showing up on this TV with this universal remote ? Is there anyway that i can maybe get some help with this to help me out with solving my issue with the Phillips Wide Screen TV ?

Tv showing blue screen with flyback lines sound ok


Flyback lines? Is the picture all white with no brightness control with faint horizontal faint lines? If this is what you are saying, the screen voltage could be bad, and if thats the case, the picture tube or the flyback itself could be bad. You could also have a bad connection on the crt socket
