Hello david_barber,

This sounds as if it could be a problem in the power supply section of this TV. Usually LCD TVs have problems with capacitors drying up and causing this type of issue. You can check this by opening the back of the TV and seeing if you can see any of the capacitors (can like components) that look bloated and or puffy (this is a sign that the capacitor was stressed for a period of time. Now as far as replacing the capacitors or even the board, I would suggest that this be done by a qualified TV Technician, due to the fact that there are procedures involved in the removal and replacement of parts that the technician would know of.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

My 42 lcd phillips tv colur turns red and zig zag lines then turns itself off why is it doing this


You are not the only one I can tell you that. I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

After switching the tv to standby it automatically turns back on, we have to turn off at the plug what could cause this tv is about three years old


Do you have the tv connected by any scart connections.
If so turn them of 1 by 1 as the scart can control the tv in stand by.
Also when you turn of remove the batteries from the remote if this cures your problem replkace the remote
