Philips 21" L01.2A Chassis HV Shutdown

TV set shutdown after few seconds of coming on. Set will stay on longer if you continuously change channel.Problem was intermittent before but goes hard now. I have done some resoldering thinking that is just some cold solder issue. Screen flickers with green, and sometimes red color before shutdown. I have checked the power supply section, voltages seems to be ok. The main supply output of SMPS(B+) bothers me because per schem. diagram it should be 130Vdc for the 21" set and I'm reading 139dc volts. What could be causing this "abnormal" voltage output of SMPS? I have replaced the swithcing regulator IC and some electrolytic caps in the horizontal driver ckt. I have read that most of the Philips product having this chassis no. encounter the same problem but no one seems to solve the problem. Glad if anyone from the masters can help. Thanks in advance. God bless. Thanks.

    This set is just a year and a half and out of warranty. Hoping that this is just an easy fix since I understand electronics but have not repaired TV a long time ago.

    Hi Shuttle83,

    I managed to check the output of the video processor and seems to be fine. I was able to put the set in service default mode and its blink corresponds to error 11 & 2. both high beam current problem. I tried to adjust the screen voltage but still no joy. I am only equipped with DMM in troubleshooting my TV set. Will a defective yoke will cause this problem? I have found some abnormal (black like burnt) colors in the yoke. Thanks for advise.

    just moved into a new apartment, TV was working fine here for 2 weeks then just started acting crazy. Turn on and it will automatically turn off and on then going off with the green light still on. I had issues with this tv 2x before, 1st within a week of getting it, was doing this was but was under warranty... then it started up again a few months ago... Took it to the shop got it fixed and I thought all was well, but I can not afford to keep putting this in the shop... Is there anything that I can do...

    Thanks in Advance...

    hola amigos espero me puedan ayudar estoy tratando de reparar un tv philips 21" modelo 21pt5026/71 chasis L01.2A el cual vino con problema que no prendia (esta falla debido segun cliente a que estuvieron presionando el power del control remoto y del tv varias veces ) solo encontre el transistor horizontal BUT11APX lo remplace por el BUT11A, lo demas parecia estar bien asi que encendi el tv y lo que pasa es que a los 2 segundos se apaga , cuando enciende se ve la imagen y audio normal todo solo que al comienzo sin antena se veia la trama azulada . y cuando se conecto antena la imagen parpadeaba y se tornaba de los tres colores uno tras otro ..y se apagaba . cambie el regulador , descarte la memoria , cambien el I.C: vertical, transistores driver horizontal y nada no se donde pueda estar la falla cualquier ayuda bienvenida y estare agradecido .

Hello bashlort, The increase in voltage may be to some circuit loading being removed this is a sign that something may have increased in resistance or something may have opened in the attached circuit. Have you taken any voltage measurements in the video section of the set, if not check the voltages on the pins of the video processor IC and follow the connections up to the CRT socket, be sure to pay special attention to the focus and screen grid voltages. If those are ok check the voltages in the horizontal section including oscilloscope measurements for drive signals. Please inform me of your findings. Thank you, Shuttle83

TV comes on n goes off,does 3 times

This is the Famous 3 strikes and out for RCA's--it tries to come on 3 times and if fails shutdown occurs.

The high pitched sound may be a short or could be something arcing--if the sound comes from near the very front of set--could be the HV splitter this set has arcing.

Tv will stay on for about 10 mins. then turn off and then the red light would start blinking tv will not turn back on intil i unplug tv

It sounds like you are describing high-voltage (HV) shutdown. As a safety feature, if the voltage in the TV rises above a set limit, the TV will shut off to prevent possible x-rays from the picture tube. The only way to reset the shutdown is by unplugging the TV, then reconnecting the power.

This shutdown can be caused by several things. The power supply may in fact not be regulating the voltage properly because of component failure. Your power line voltage may be a little higher than usual and causing nuisance shutdowns. Or the HV shutdown control may simply need to readjusted because components have aged and changed value slightly, also causing nuisance shutdown. The HV transformer may be defective, or the picture tube is going bad.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to say what's wrong without seeing the set to check operation and determine the cause. So I can't suggest anything you might do yourself to fix this. If you want to keep this TV you should let a professional servicer check it over, determine what's needed and give you an estimate. Or you can use this as an excuse to purchase a new TV. Flat screen sets are quite reasonably priced now, and depending on what turns out to be wrong with your TV, it might be more economical to replace it.

Ed did you change the yokes when you put the DPTV series CRT into the PTV chassis? If not its most likely the vertical output or the Horizontal output that got destroyed. If you changed the yoke its most likely the HV generator.
On the DPTV chassis that should shutdown the vertical deflection which would leave audio working worse case scenario would also be the HV generator and Horizontal output.

Philips DPTV335

That chassis has a couple of problems I'd check first before writting it off as a bad crt... The vertical Ic can cause the problems you're experiencing. In that unit it's a TDA8177 (vertical Ic) and if it fails you'll find no 10v supply to the HV generator - thus no HV to light the cans. Could also be the HV generator module itself, but more likely vertical Ic before suspecting the HV module. If you hav a dmm you could measure the voltage on pins 7 & 8 or pins 1 & 2 on the HV plug. If you have nothing there it's the generator - if not highly suspect the vertical.
To answer your question - if the blue can were bad red & green would still light depending on the internal short. If all three are out I'd suspect a loss of HV (high voltage) or B+ as it's referenced.
Good Luck!

Mitsubishi vs-50609 wont stay powered on

Hello carriegomez,

I gave this advice to someone with this same problem so here it is again:

It sounds like your shutdown circuit is being activated. This is due to excess current being drawn. This usually happens in the High Voltage section of the TV or one of the deflection stages. Due to the nature of this problem I would suggest that you take it to a local TV repair shop or have a TV repair person come out and take a look at the issue. The HV section is dangerous and should be dealt with by a qualified TV repair technician.

Thank you,
I hope this helps

This could be a High- Voltage shutdown circuit problem. The reason it will stay on longer with a bright picture, is the high voltage is slightly reduced, not allowing the shutdown circuit to shut off the set. But I believe your problems to be in the shutdown circuit.

I'd like to add another on the power problem

A common failure in these units is Q401, Toshiba p/n# Bz510004 is a 2SA1624 (HV amplifier) which finally fails due to a resistor R408 Toshiba p/n# Bz210285 a .47 ohm/1w metal oxide having changed in value and at last opening...
This isn't an expensive repair for a qualified shop - but I would suggest not continuing to test your shutdown circuit. What's happening is that HV (high Voltage) is builds beyond tolerances and the shutdown circuit turns your unit off to keep from causing any severe damage. If it failed you could likely burn out the SMPS or cause some substantial damage..
Good Luck!

If the set runs at all, your flyback and output transistor are good. If the set shuts down after a few seconds and the sides are wavy, it usually means that the main B+ in your power supply is too high and not regulating properly. I do not know what kind of power supply that model uses, but if has an old-style STR regulator (like the STR30130) then it is probably shorted, and if the set uses a switching power supply then look for an open or leaky electrolytic cap on the primary side. If the power supply is working correctly and the set shuts down, check for an open safety cap (the large 1.6 - 2Kv cap connected to the collector of the horizontal output transistor).

Phillip you have a problem in the main power supply or in the High voltage shutdown circuit. Now the longer you wait to have this fixed the more its gonna cost ya Unless your a tech then get a schematic and measure the voltage on the hv shutdown pin on the video junglke ic when the set shuts down If the voltage at the time of the shutdown sodent spike up then you know your problem is in the power supply. Good luck
