    I have a 27PT543S37A, it tries to turn on with a fuzzy picture and then shuts off. Aftern about 10 to 20 times it finally works. Now it wont turn on at all but, I do hear a lot of clicking when I try to turn it on.

    When turning on the TV it would have a distorted picture for few seconds then turn off. This would happen over and over again, especially when changing channels before it was working properly. After several months it would not work at all. Clicking would go on as if it was trying to turn on. Then I found this site, changed capacitor 2455 with one from Radio Shack at $1.19 + tax. It was 47 uf and 35 V. TV works fine now - at least for awile. Best picture I remember. Thank you.

    I had the same exact problem, but now today on the 23rd try (and what I thought was the one), all I got was a chirping sound with no picture and what seems like no effort on my tv's end.  I am so mad at Phillips, what a POS.  Any chance of a repair, or do you think its time to toss it to the curb (heavy SOB too)?  Help anyone please please?? Thanks

URC20 D1F codes for philips tv

Not sure which Philips TV model you have. But you can use the remote to scan the code by itself.

Try these steps::

1. Manually turn on your TV. Hold down the "Code Search" button on your remote, then press and release the device button you want to set up until it flashes.
2. Push the power button repeatedly until the TV turns off, then hit "Enter."
3. Press any other button while the TV is on to see if it responds. If it does, you don't need to do any other programming. If it doesn't, repeat steps

Trying to program my guesTVision CL034 remote to control a Mitsubishi tv.

Turn on tv. On the remote, hold down 'Code Search' button until red light comes on remote. Press 'Chan +' button (on remote) repeatedly until the channel changes. Be patient, this could take lots of pushes. Once the channel changes on the tv, push the 'mute' button on the remote. You're set!

TV turns on at odd hours by itself

Hi, I had the "Ghost In The Machine". I tried out what I descibed in my original posting.
#1. I unplugged The Set.
#2. I pushed in and held in the power button in for about 5 minutes before bedtime. ( The PC trick I learned) I gave it 5 minutes because a tv set has much more power inside it.
#3. I again pushed in and held the power button in again for 3 minutes the next morning.
#4. I plugged the tv in again. The red standby light was lit. The set did not immeadiatly come on when I tried to power it up.
#5. 5 Minutes later I returned and hit the power button on the remote and it came on like nothing ever was wrong.
#6. It has been fine now for 3 days!!! Powers up when commanded and shuts down like normal. It has yet to come back on or act up as it was doing.
I will keep a watch on it and if it starts up acting again I will repost. I hope this information will be of use to anyone who experienced the same problem. It didn't cost a dime, just some patience. Thanks for a forum that people can exchange information and save trouble and money unless all options are exhausted. Bill
