Question about Philips 32PT5441/37 32" TV

1 Answer

Interesting problem... I picked this TV up from a neighbor's house...he said a repair guy wanted to charge him $100 to repair it.  He decided to chunk it, so I decided to take it & see if I could fix it myself.  So here's the problem:  When I turn it on, it clicks & powers on...however, no picture or sound.  After about 10 seconds or so, it shuts off & the power light blinks twice, then a long blink afterwards.  On a google search, I got this solution for a similar problem: However, I realize that, like beep codes on a computer POST, different light codes mean different things.  So what's my solution?

.I have 60 inch rca guide plus big screen tv control buttons don't work correctly

Replace the batteries.....use the matching process in your manual to make sure the controller and tv are matched up....check the tv settings by using your buttons on the make sure it hasn't been set to function manually...and not to respond to any remote controls....replace the remote controller....make sure the receiver eye or sound collection area of your tv is not covered by a drape or decoration of some sort...and clear and free of obstacles to communicate with the remote controller.....make sure the tv and cable box are correctly plugged into the electrical receptacle and to each may have to program your remote control to control your cable box too...instructions in your manual....or call the cable company and they will set your cable box controller to control your tv ......step by step over the could be a high number of other your neighbors remote interfering or the hamm radio guy down the street interfering.....but there are a few basic things to check out before calling a tv repair guy to come and get you working.

Good luck and I hope I was some help.

Hi my goodman ld3236d tv will not come out of

99.9% chance its the power supply. If you have basic electronic knowledge you could repair it yourself for a few dollars, send it to be repaired for around $100, or check Ebay or the parts houses for a replacement for between $30-200. I just bought a new supply for an Insignia 37" from Best-Buy Parts for $34 when everyone else wanted $99--179. Do some research and make you own decision. Let me know if I can help further. CC

You may need a stronger antenna or your neighbor may have only a VHF antenna and most of the digital channels are being broadcast over UHf. . First, though, check the antenna connection as if they are dirty, they may be lowering the signal strength (these are the connections at the antenna). Check for the angel to put the tv antenna at to pick up the most channels. Internal antenna work very poorly. I have been having no problem with my outdoor UHF/VHF antenna, it picks up the same amount of channels in analog and digital.

Mitsubishi WT-A42

I repaired a convergence problem on this model by locating IC8C01 and IC8C02, the two large convergence chips on the main pcb(center board) and solder all the leads making sure not to leave any solder bridges! The unit was over 4 years old and used often. Those chips get pretty heated and make the solder brittle and crack around the leads.

RCA MM36100 power & repairman issue

Let me start by saying what I use to tell new technicians, "Nothing excuses bad behavior". Now that being said lets discuss what happened. Your voltage regulator to the B+ of horizontal output transistor went bad (this with the damper diode regulates the pulses are used by the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer) to create the high voltage used by the CRT anode. As you have figured out, shop #1 tried to rip you off or they did not have anyone that could troubleshoot at component level, a lot of shops still have this problem.

He charge you a fair price $170.00, where things went wrong was when you asked what could have caused this, he replied a power surge, you said in so many works that you had a surge protector connected to which he said no you just had a power strip connected. This was more or less him reliving a bad experience with power surge protectors, customers, insurance companies, and lawyers. To make a long story short TV shop owners hate it when you say that you had a power strip with surge protection, because this means that they have to wait for you to get your money from either the protector company or they have to wait until the court case is over before they are paid anything, and some customers have been caught in filing false reports and then the TV shop is caught up in this whole mess and the owner could be charged as a co-conspirator, thus possibly lose his shop because of a fraud charge. It other words he was scared.

First apologize for the misunderstanding, then ask if he would give you a list of the parts used on your set, and explain that this list is just to provide a work history of the set, Tell him that you in no way meant him any disrespect or hard feelings. This may or may not help, but it will show him that no harm was intended.
Just ask for the list, not the original part.

Once you have your set back take it and the list to another shop and this time don't ask "What could have caused this" Just ask if faulty power could cause this to happen? .

I hope this answers your question and provides relief.

Thank you,

Repair shop says Flyback Transformer needs replacement

If you know what you are doing, and you have a good (de)solderstation, you can repaire it yourself, but you don't know if it for sure the transformer. since you did not find the problem yourself, suppose you replace the transformer and your TV does not work !? Even when you repair it yourself, the repair guy shall charge you the cost for his time (I don't know the exact english word for his time checking the TV). And I suppose there is a warranty for his repair. So...
