Question about Philips 20DV6942 20 in. TV/DVD Combo

2 Answers

Tv's dead WHen I try to power my tv, nothing happens. Tv was left plugged for a week in my cottage and now refuse to power up; not even the led will come on. I opened the back cover and checked the fuse inside; it is ok. The power switch seems to work since I hear the click when it is pushed down, however I did not check continuity. Now I suspect it could maybe due to some relay not closing in the power circuit. Unfortunately without a scematic it is hard to follow the parts in the tv. Any help ?

Re: Tv's dead

You need to change the opto MOC3021, together with the triac BT137 I wait and this solves your problem

Hitachi 46w500 went off tonight during storms, low voltage, wont turn back on

There might be a failure on the power supply or horizontal section of the TV even if you see some light inside the TV. Some of the voltages could be missing and that is why the TV fails to power up.
If you know how to use a multimeter, you could check all the fuses from your power supply.
Unplug your TV from the main AC line if you intend to do it yourself.
You will know how much you can do or it might safer to contact a tech.
Let me know if you need further assistance

How do I reset a GE model 26gc642 television

There is no reset, when a CRT stays in storage for prolonged amount of time, moisture can build up and when you plugged in, most likely a surge happened, and your tv I'm afraid is dead. use it as an excuse to get an LCD :)

Philips tv 20pf4121 doesn't turn on

I had exactly the same problem When the TV was switched on all I could see was a flashing green light. After cheching the TV internals and not seeing a problem including the power supply unit which looked and checked normal. Here is what I did to get M TV working again.
Disconnect it from the power supply. Hold down all the buttons simultaneously i.e. the on/off, the volume, the programme, menu buttons, all of them simultaneously and Plug it into the power supply again.
Lo and behold My TV jumped back into life after an absence of about 4 weeks.
Try it yourself exactly as above.

Best of luck.

No power

*note it is never safe to open a tv to self service when it is plugged in. it can cause serious bodily harm,injury or death. and is best to leave to proffesionals.

do you see any blown capacitors on the pcb boards. that are puffy or bulged on the top? any fried black singes on the bottom? i assume your tester is a voltometer? if so then you can try to bypass the power button by jumping it from 2 connectors on the board with your voltometer and it should boot up or at least make a noise. if nothing happens then the power is stopping before it even hits the power switch. inwhich case the tv needs the pcb board replaced but it will probably be cheaper and easier to replace the unit as a whole.

You or someone may have press record and the set is in record mode. that way whatever time it's set for it will come on. Or you have to unplug to reset. Leave off for atleast 1hour then plug back in.

TV refuses to stay on

I'm the OP of this, and what I did was had it unplugged for about 2 days, plugged it back in and it has worked since.

TV is dead

Could be many things, possibly a vertical IC failure, or bad soldered joints, or problems with the power supply. Considering your questions, if theres a problem with the tube, you don't want to change it, it won't be worth the expense, and since you're asking, then you probably shouldn't try anything with it. VERY dangerous, more or less like a microwave. TVs store very high voltages even when unplugged. What you could try is to unplug the TV over night, maybe the TV needs a bit of a discharge. also try another power outlet. other then that, you better take it to repair shop. Good luck
