Question about Flat Panel Televisions
When I switch the TV on, it appears as though it is going to start i.e the green light comes on, then after about 10 seconds it switches itself off and the standby light flashes red. It started a few days ago and would turn on after a few tries and now finally won't respond. Just keeps doing what I stated above. I found another website (not interactive) that issued this solution: "The problem is three caps. Remove the back of the Plasma. Change the cap 2663, 2664 both 100µ/25V and 2662,1000µ/25V. After you have changed them your TV will work again." Does this sound right? Where do you find these parts? And how easy is it to replace myself. Phillips offered no advice when called except to unplug TV and plug back in, which I already did three times with no change. They then said to call a serviceman (thanks for the great tip Phillips.) I appreciate any help if it is possible to resolve this problem myself. Thank you in advance for your time and assitance, Tony BearFan5
Hi I had exactly the same problem, bought the above parts off ebay. The above solution worked and tv back to normal. the soldering is a bit tricky and there is a lot of screws holding the back on!
