Question about Philips Magnavox 51MP392H Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power failure lost tv

We lost our power today for about 45 seconds and then NO TV!!! It is making a chirping sound when we turn it on. Any idea how to fix or how much this might cost us??? We just spent $300 last December when the color convergence went bad!! DON'T LEAVE THE TV SET RUNNING ALL THE TIME TO AVOID THAT PROBLEM!!! JUST AN FYI. EVEN IF YOU TURN IT OFF FOR 5-10 MINS WHILE YOU ARE OUT OF THE ROOM TO LET THE MIRRORS COOL DOWN IT WILL MAKE IT LAST LONGER!!!

Re: power failure lost tv

The chirpping noise is significant, it means that the smps is loading down because of a direct short, possibly in the horz. output transistor. But that is most likely not all the problem or the damage. It wasn't losing the power that hurt it was getting it back and the power most likely spiked with enough of a surge to damage the LSB (Large Signal Board)... I've seen at least a half dozen of these in the last six months with the same scenerio and the only repair for this is to replace the LSB, unfortunately they are no longer available so the next best thing is to have it rebuilt.
The part number of the LSB is 313503712571 and at Vance Baldwin they're $353.00 with a $30.00 core plus shipping. You're better off having the shop tear it down and send the board directly into PTS Electronics. At least you've got a rough idea what you're facing..
Hope this helps!

No power just a chirping noise.

Chirping means the power supply is being loaded down by a short in most cases, likely a bad convergance IC

When tv turned screen is blank and chirping sound comes from back

A chirping sound usually means that one of the secondary supplies has shorted, most likely the horizontal output transistor. The power supply "chirps", which is the sound it makes when it protects itself from drawing too much current. The set should be serviced by someone with experience in Philips projection TV'.

PT-43LC14 No Picture, chirping sound when turned on

Most of the time, when there is a chirping comming from a TV set, there is a short somewhere inside the TV set. That chirping noise is the TV's power supply starting up and shutting down because of a heavy load on the power supply. These sets have no user replaceable parts inside them, so play it safe, and call out a pro to assist you in this repair. good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
