TV wont turn on

Hi Guys,

                The red power indication on my Philips 34pt5793/79R TV just oscillates on and off when the power is turned on at the mains. There is no other symptons and attempting to turn the TV on by the remote does not achieve anything.

Any assistance would be fantastic.

Re: TV wont turn on

Your problem is in power supply

there is a switching circuit in power supply

some capacitor or transistor might be faulty there

also check for loose contact in power supply

it is a simple problem for skilled tech.


good luck

Hello Hloggins, hi, your power supply is not producing the pulse needed to start the switching. check for the IC on the oscillator part of the power supply, you need an Oscilloscope to test this. if there is no scope. i suggest you replace the IC.

Philips 32pw9527/05 tv does not start

Generally these type of problem occurs due to atmosphere contains moisture content. Even if it happens in warm area i suspect fbt leakage. Since this is high voltage transformer it can be serviced by qualified technicians only. Red light flashes indicates the tv in protection mode to avoid severe damage due to some short circuit. I think it is helpful to you
