Question about Philips TS3661C 36" TV

1 Answer

Fading fast I have two problems with my set. 1. The picture ocassionally pulses. It very gently shrinks and expands. 2. Every once in a while it just turns itself off. It comes back on to the same channel, if I press the power button on my remote. If I need parts, where can I get them. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    My 36" shrinks & expands and shuts off. I changed the input from cable to the RCA plugs but it's still doing it. I will get it fixed if it isn't too expwnsive. I jsut don't want to pay the electronics repair shop the standard fee to tell me it's not fixable

    while watching channels the picture will switch between normal and expand video, without touching remote, especially noticeable when writing is on the video.
