Question about Philips 25PS40S 25" TV

1 Answer

Won't turn on

Hope it's not completely fried (It's the best thing I got out of my divorce LOL)... For the past few weeks, every time I hit the power button, it would come on for a few seconds, the picture would be squished, or fuzzy, and then it would turn back off. Doing this repeatedly eventually got it to stay on, (and have a clear pic). However, this no longer works. We've unplugged it, checked the fuse in the strip, all the basics. What it does now is just emit this buzzing, squeaking sound, and no picture or audio at all when power button is hit. PLEASE HELP

Sony TV won't turn on

Unfortunately it's 10 years old. I can't recommend fixing it because something else may go wrong in a month or two and then you would be looking for a new one. It's too bad though because the problem is most likely not the picture tube or it could even be a loose connection but you'd still need a repair person. THEN AGAIN....

I just found this remark elsewhere on this forum from volts.

Don't beat it with a bat LOL, the problem your having is a simple solution, however this would be best left to a qualified tech to do, the Screen Voltage needs to be tweaked up just a tick, I've worked on alot of these sony's and 9 times out of ten thats what it is.

Sony KV Trinitron WEGA 36" TV won't turn on

My 36 wega did the same thing last week it must be contagious. Blinks 7 times mostly but sometimes 6 if hit power switch again. The problem is the D-boards shorted Flyback high voltage transformer but the ones Sony is selling $130 do not hold up and seem to burn out in a few days, yes twice bitten. Finally they send me new D-board can't wait to see if this fixes it once and for all. The board costs around $200 but is worth it to get it running again.

Guide pop up

Maybe there is a setting for the guide in the main MENU settings to adjust when the TV GUIDE displays? Or just turn it off completely? Pretty basic answers, I know, : )

Just bought a 32" LCD HDTV from a guy, it worked great for a week

From another post made on here, it sounds like the power supply in the TV got fried. Most likely hard to fix if not impossible. I would probably junk it, fixing power supplies are hard I know I've tried to fix pc ones and it only worked once for a little bit lol so unless you are technically inclined and handy with a soldering iron or know a buddy who is, you probably shouldn't bother.

TV shuts off after few minutes

tap it on its side then try to turn it on and see if it stays on if it does bad solder connections
