The fuse is easy to find on TV's. unplug it, take the cover off, should be very near where the power cord comes in.
The bad news is it that it is most likely that there is more wrong than just the fuse.
Check the rectifier diodes just past the fuse.
Of course, my advice on TV's over 10 years old is to not waste any money fixing them.

Check the wall outlet, make sure there is power at the wall. If not, check the breaker panel. If there is power at the wall, check the TV for a manual on/off switch. If you have a power switch on the TV, turn it off, wait 10 seconds, then turn it on. If no power switch on the TV, unplug the TV for 10 seconds, then plug in again. Use the remote to turn the TV on. Check for a fuse or circuit breaker on the TV, usually near where the power cord enters the TV.
Make sure you have good batteries in the remote. If all this fails, then something may be damaged inside your TV, as a result of a power spike before the power went out, or when it came back on.
Take it to a repair shop.
hi. if any of the little copper bits are tutching the fat bit of copper in the middle of the arial that go into the back of the tv you wont get a picture and you might not have the right conecting bit from the arial to the tv as you get male and female ones. or you mite need to retune your t.v as evrything has gone digital and if something has interupted it. it will need retuneing and will need a satalite or a channel 5 arial. hope it helps thanks sean
The power shut off because it has been a power surge - the voltage on the line grew very high for a fraction of a second. When that happened the protection system at the power station that powers your house disconected the mains, shutting everything down. Unfortunately it hasn't acted fast enough and the power source of the tv has been fried by the surge. To fix that you will have to dismantle the tv and replace the power source with an original one. If you don't know ho to do it then the only thing left for you to do is to take the tv to a certified repair shop. It will be expensive, so be prepared .
if your television is an older model probably the switch is defective.need to be replace,if its a newer model then the trouble must be in the power supply section.contact a tv technician tto check the trouble.
Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;
Resetting the TV
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time. 1.Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 6 hours.in order to dessipitate the charge current. 2.Unplug any connected devices (Satellite, DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...) 3.Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds. 4.Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5.Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again. 6.Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices. 7.Turn on the TV.
Not all Philips TVs use the same remote codes.
It is very unlikely that the TV remote receiver is the problem (trust me).
Is this the original remote for that set?
If not, try program it as a universal with the other Philips codes or get a universal remote and do the same.
Here is the website for remote codes:
You should open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace.
Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs.
You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet.
In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer.
All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace
If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced or buy a new one.
