TV shut down while watching

I was watching TV with my family one day when the TV decided to completely turn off. It's not an old TV and we didnt do anything wrong. We havent been able to get it back on since. When we turn the power button on, the green light flashes a few times and then shuts off. Can you tell me what I should do and if it's costly?

I have a 27" RCA TruFlat TV. Recently the picture

Something has definitely gone wrong. When picture fails, generally the audio will still play; but since the set is shutting down completely after a short time - it is going to more involved.

Firstly, anything can be fixed. The questions to ask are: 1) At what point do you stop spending money to repair a device that is XX years old? 2) How much would a replacement / upgrade cost?

Given that your set is an older SD (standard definition) with an old analog NTSC legacy tuner, it may be worth while to make the move to a digital HDTV. The picture quality will "blow away" any SD version of the same image / program that your old TV displayed. Unlike several years ago, the HDTV has come way down in price, too. A 32 inch, wide screen HDTV price starts at just $235 as results shown by a search in Google. In order to view HD signals, you'll need either 1) a plain UHF/VHF antenna (and local broadcasters in range), 2) HD cable TV service or, 3) HD satellite service. Cable and satellite providers offer SD service and for slightly more, HD service. Most people are not happy watching SD signals on an HD display - so you'll probably want to change the level of service if you're not using an antenna. Old DVD players only send SD signals, you might consider upgrading to a Blu-Ray player. Blu-Ray players provide SD and HD signals - depending on whether you insert an SD DVD or an HD Blu-Ray disk. The Blu-Ray players, like the HDTVs, have also dropped in price significantly.

See if you can find a place that provides free estimates. If not able to locate, find someone that will apply the cost of diagnostics (ask what the diagnostic fee is) to the total repair charge, and decide to either fix or replace.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thank you.

Green screen then blacked out

Sounds like component has failed (diode, cap, IC)
Unfortunately, the days of taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed. Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost effective to repair.

TV only 2 months old ceases to work


I think it is the EHT for some reason it blew off for you. You got a miniature picture after you turned it on again because it was partially damaged and then it blew off completely. It can be fixed from a competent person.

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
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,

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?
