Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
It had two blown fuses and a cut power cord when I salvaged it, I soldered on a new power cord, replaced the fuses and the tv ran great for about 8 hours, then shut it's self off. It turned back on and shut it's self off immediately. We took a look at the fuses and they were fine, let it sit for an hour and it worked for another few hours before turning off. Every time it's turned on it turns it's self off sooner, no matter how long it's been turned off or unplugged. It was unplugged over night, ran for 40 minutes and turned its self off, there is no noise or light associated with it's being turned off, but when it comes back on there is an upside down rainbow on the top of the screen. Any help is greatly appretiated.
1) Not vertical problem
2) "upside down rainbow" at any time is a convergence issue
3) Replace STK convergence amp IC's
Let me know if you need more help...................T.
