Unfortunately, when it starts taking longer before the picture pops up, it is the picture tube going bad. And the picture tube is the most expensive part of those tpye of televisions. My sony did the same thing. I hope your television is older and at least you got your dollars worth. If your not into a flat screen television, the tube type televisions are a little cheaper, you just don't get the picture quality of a lcd or plasma screen.

Philips 42 wont turn on


I am having this same problem. I have "fixed" this problem twice by replacing 2 failed capacitors inside. The fix is pretty easy and the cost of the replacement parts is about $2.50. Unfortunately, the fix doesn't last. The first time, the TV worked again for about 6 months, but the 2nd time, when I replaced with higher grade capacitors, I only got another 2 weeks out of the TV. I think it's time to cut my losses and get a new set. Repair costs were estimated at $600. ...just not worth it.

My Philips 36'' CRT TV won't turn on.


Hi - Yes. There are high voltage components in your CRT TV that only a certified TV repair shop should repair. And the cost of that would likely be over $100 so you are definitely better off getting a new LCD TV. You will also save a great deal of electricity with your new TV, my 55" only uses $19 worth of electricity a year. And the picture is much better as well.
Have fun shopping!

The picture is taking longer and longer to come on. It's not a consistent length, last night had it on several hours, it was off for an hour and a half, turned it back on and it took over 90 seconds for...


if you can get another one for a reasonable i would certainly consider that. the cost to get these lcd's fixed sometimes is not worth it. you seem to have more than one problem with the set.

Lighting strike. Fixable? Worth fixing?


The cost to fix it is too high. And normally it affects almost all components.
Take it to an expert near you and analyze the situation if you want, but if it was me I would thow that away and buy a new one.

Magnavox 27m53404/17 Picture went out


Hello there, I'm having a major problem with my TV, I have called all of the local TV repair shops and they all are the same, they want money money money before they will even speak with me about the problem I'm having. This is the only TV in my entire household for a family of 4 and we desperately need the TV in working condition for our kids. I don't want to have to put out $500 for another set if I don't absolutely have to.

The Problem...

About 3-4 months ago the TV when turned on, the picture would slowly come into view and be very scrambled and before the picture would come into complete view the TV power would shut itself off, but the power light would remain on. You can hear the "Click" noise when it would shut itself off.

2-3 seconds after it 'shut itself off' then the TV would make the "Click" noise (The same noise it makes when you first turn it on), it would make the "Click" noise over and over and over again but nothing would happen. So i would turn it off and on again and change the channel rapidly until after 2-3 minutes it would come into view and work.

So we decided to leave the TV on 24 hours a day. Then today we awoke and it was off and making the "clicking" noise over and over and over again but with no picture or sound. Now it wont even turn on/off it just sits there and goes "Click, Click Click Click" and doesn't do anything.

I described the problem as best as I can. Here is the TV information and specifications...

Philips 27 Inch Tube TV

Model Number... 27PT54 3S37A

Serial Number... 78438404

105 Watts
60HZ
120V
Date Code March 2003


-------

Now that I typed the model number there are threads everywhere people saying the same issue exactly as me, I will read them but please someone tell me is there anything I can do...
Can anyone explain exactly what is wrong with the Tv and why it's doing this?

Also, what should I expect to pay to repair it?

Any information or help would be appreciated very much.

Thanks in advance,
Anthony



Just got off the phone with certified Philips shop...they said they will repair it for $100-$130 with a $25 down payment just drop it off and he will call me when its done. Does this sound like its worth it or a rip off?

TV Picture No Longer Comes On


Sounds like one or multiple Reservoir Capacitors in the Power Supply were starting to dry up. You also get problems like this from dry joints in the Power Supply. You need a technician to take a look for certain.
