SOURCE: Phillips 42FD9954 plasma will not turn ON

I have a Phillips 42FD9954/17S and every time I try to turn it on I also get the power red light blinking and sometimes it will try to turn on with a bunch of clicking noises and it will be green for a while then turn red. What I do and its very weird but works, put a blow dryer on hot and blow it under the tv on the side of the power button for about 10 minutes and it will turn on. I took it apart and there is a heat sink that if i put the blow dryer directly onto it on heat it turns on in less than a minute. Can someone tell me how I can fix this heat sink? I cant take it off. I want to put some thermal compound to see if that works. Give it a try I promise it will work. The Red Light has to be on put the heat on it and then press the power button, if you hear it clicking and green then back to red you are almost there. Keep putting heat on it and it will turn on.

SOURCE: 47" Philips LCD TV will not stay on and show a picture.

Your mainboard needs to be replaced.

You can get one on ebay and replace it or get someone who can do that for you.

if you still have guarantee, it is covered, if not you will need to buy it.

After turning on the tv, the power goes on and off automatically


Hi.

The TV goes into protect mode because a internal fault is detected. Protect mode is a forced standby mode that starts when an internal fault is detected. The TV power board supplies power in different voltages. When in protect mode the PSU higher voltages are shuts down. The only PSU line that remains live is +5VDC.

All you can do at user level is turning off the TV and disconnect the power cord for about ten minutes. This will drain power from the TV circuits and can fix temporary problems caused by the accumulation of electrostatic charge in internal components.

If after the power drain the TV still does not restart, then internal components must be tested and repaired. The job must be done by a trained technician. To book a technician or to order parts call the phone number listed on the owners manual.

Regards.

Samsung LN40A530P1F LCD TV keeps blowing main power fuse when i turn set on it blows right away i have replaced fuse many times. Also when back was off i noticed a arcing as fuse blows at a component just...

If a fuse blows like that there is a major problem, inside. I suspect that what your are seeing is the inrush thermistor, and they exhibit this under great load. I would explect that this fault maybe in the actual PSU. Due to the lack of service manual support, i would get a quote for repair from an authorised service center.

Standby light keeps blinking. tv wont turn on


If the TV goes off completely, then is usually a faulty power board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

I have a universal remote control device(G.E.) that i want to use for a Sanyo DWM395 DVD Player. i lost the instructions with the codes though. can you please help me with this issue? thanks!


Try this through your Remote, it should automatically search & detect devices automatically without the need to know the codes.


USING CODE SEARCH FUNCTION
If your TV, VCR, DVD, etc. does not respond after you have tried all the codes
for your brand or if your brand is not listed, try searching for your codes by
following the steps below.
1. Turn on the device you wish to program.
2. Press and hold CODE SEARCH/SETUP until the INDICATOR
LIGHT lights, then release.
3. Press and release the device button for the device you are
programming (TV, VCR, DVD, etc.). The INDICATOR LIGHT will
blink once then remain lit. For AUX, press AUX then the device
button you are assigning to AUX.
4. Press and release POWER until your device turns off. Wait at least
2 seconds between each time you press POWER. Important: You
may have to press POWER up to 250 times.
5. When your device turns off press the ENTER/SAVE button. The
INDICATOR LIGHT will go off.
