Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
Hello I have a Phillips 50 model number 50p8341 the red light flashes and when it comes on it shuts it self right back off. Sometimes it stays on for a while and sometimes it dosen't
I posted my problem in September. Since then, I ordered the power supply and installed it. I cleaned and reseated all other boards. The TV did the same thing. Discouraged, I ordered the keyboard module. Sears told that part is no longer available. I put keyboard module back in and unplugged the TV. About a week later I turned the TV on and it stayed on until I turned it off. The next day, the same thing. Now I put a DVD player on it and it plays fine. So before you spend alot of money.........try the power supply..it is less than $60.........my TV is a 50P8342 ; PTV 916 I hope this helps....

Contact the company that makes your tv and find out what the "code" (# of times the red light flashes) means. Then call a repair place and check prices on the part. It might be worth having them fix it for you! My tv is a phillips 50" plasma and the light was flashing 6 times witch ment "power board" the part was 318 and the labor was 195....for a tv I paid 2,000 for 23 months ago. I hope it doesnt go out in another 2 years....nice that they know it will go out and even program a "code" in it for you!!!

Got my Panasonic tv back from repair. The repair man mumbled something about some IF IC (Which I take it to be some kind of integrated circuit) which needed replacing. The whole service cost me about 24 Euros, so not a lot considering.

I go through the same thing, the only difference is that when I attempt to turn on my TV, it makes the sound of turning on, then immediately shuts off and the power button flashes red in patterns of 2.
Ex. *Flash* *Flash* 1, 2, *Flash* *Flash*
If there is any information on this problem, please dont hesitate to post.

I have the same problem with my panasonic tv, when I switch it on, the tv stays on for a while, then these horizontal lines start to appear and after a while the TV goes off on its own, with its red light flashing. After a long while it switches back on by itself and whole process is repeated. Time for a new TV I think

Bad connections or bad regulator
