Re: comes on then shuts off

Hello Mha8649,


The TV shuts off because the shutdown circuit it turning the TV set off. The shutdown circuit does this because of an over-current condition. I would advise that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop.


I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Have a model 55pw9383/17f that had convergence issues for a while. The reds, blues and greens were all seperated. Now I turn it on and have no picture.

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired.You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

Tv turns on and then off

Good Day, ruschracing;

Storm? The first thing you should do is unplug the TV from the wall for 3 to 6 minutes (reset), then plug back into wall.

If that does not help, then you should call an authorized service center to give you an estimate for the repairs. OR call your home owners insurance company.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

This can be one of two problems. 1: convergence output ic's need to be replaced. 2: The problem is in the power supply, most likely a power diode.

Both problems you will need to take it two a repair shop.

The TV is a Phillips Matchline 55"; wide screen, approx 7 years old.When switched on the LED goes red then there is a clicking sound then the LED blinks red continuosly and there is no picture.

The TV is going into protective shutdown. What is the model number of your set? I may be able to help you depending on the chassis number.
