Philips 28inch tv problems getting it to turn on!!!!!!!

Hi i have a philips 28pw6506/05 set (28inch) that is L01.1E It does not like to start and goes into standby for maybe 6 to 20 times. there is no error codes coming up on sam but i have the service man and the schematic for it. The BC337-25 seems to be a common thing with them ref 7461 & 7463 plus cap 2455 which appears to be 47mf 35v.. that is from a similar set with same problem. My problem is i cannot find the values for BC337-25 in the service manual and i have found maplin does a BC337-16 which i am sure is very different from what i want. I have found other suppliers that appear to have alternatives but without the values i cant choose the correct ones. Maybe you know where i can get the parts i need and any info on if i am on the right track would be good, it did come up with error 5 and 7 but since i cleared the errors there has not been any!!!!! Strange well i think it is?
Is this going down the right track to fix my problem?
Thanks for your input and taking the time to read this

Re: philips 28inch tv problems getting it to turn...

In your set there are some more caps that have become thermo sensitive. You can find these with Freeze Spray and a heat gun by using the technique of heating and cooling to provoke the fault. Since your set works hot, freeze the suspect caps, and then turn on the set. While the set is running, carefuly heat them one at a time until you get the failure.

Any electronic device should reliably work from turn on, through to shut down for any period of time. If there is a characteristic change, then there is a fault. The exception is for critical instruments where the instructions indicate that there is a warm up period.

The main areas of consern in your set for this type of fault would be the horizontal output stage, vertical deflection stage, pin amp area, and especialy the power supply area.

As for capacitor specs, you can use a higher rated voltage. In fact a higher voltage rated cap is better for its lifespan. As for the uF of the cap, for bypass applications and for common ripple filtering this is not critical. Only in circuits that use the cap value for pulse width or in resononance for an application the value will be critical. In the case where the cap is in series with a device that is dependent on the accuracy of the cap value, then the proper value is best to use. The cap voltage is not critical in these cases.

What is also better with caps is to use the high temp rated ones. We use 105 Deg Cels rated caps with all replacements. We try to us higher rated voltage as long as the cap will mechanicaly fit in to the required position.

With experiance, time, and patients your set is easily fixable.

Philips tv goes to the settings screen when you turn on and it doesn't go off for about 20 minutes

This could be a setting in the set or a microprocessor issue--I will presume you have unplugged the set for a while and tried that.

No model number is indicated here but you might consider calling Philips with the model number to see if it is a known issue in your set or if there is a software upgrade for this.

I have philip tv crt, model 21ht1582/75r. Problem is goes for half an hour then turn itself off.

This is typical with many sets when it goes old as there is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling , tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs.

Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points. Please find below two links for tips on poor start ups, as if the set is totally failed the SMPS might be faulty

Water got into my 28inch widescreen tv

Many circuits operate with millionths (and less) of an ampere and if the set was operated with any residual moisture, it may have destroyed any number of them.

ctgarden girl, my set does the EXACT same thing! I too wondered if a cold room was an issue. The set is only 4 years old, and I didn't have this problem in my old place where the room was a lot warmer.

Can someone please help?!?!?!?

My philips 25ts56 c221 will not come one.

You and many others i have a philips 28inch and it seems that a common problem is when they try to turn on it has a surge that then sends it back to standby if this the problem then you will expert help cos the backs got to come off and some componets changed but you dont say if you are ok to do this yourself?  Maybe the fuse inside the set or maybe there is a wire come loose in the plug or in the set. If you are not up to working on the internals then take to tv repair shop!!

Tv turns on but wont stay on

There is a resistor on the CRT board that goes bad sometimes. I cannot remember the number but it is a common fault as the TV starts up and then detects too much beam current and shuts back down. If you have a multimeter, you can check the resistors if you know how the color coding works on these resistors. If you do not, take the set to a repair shop, as this problem, if this is the problem, should not cost that much to replace a 10 cent resistor. Good Luck
