Is it fixable? Yes, but at an expense, all depending on exactly what is wrong. I predict the problem to be the horizontal deflection amplifier and the high voltage generator (called the flyback transformer). The cost of repair is likely to exceed $150.

Is it worth fixing? Probably not because the set is nearing the end of its normal life span anyway. Also, the cost of repair is about the same as a new set of equal value. Now might be an opportunity to step up to one of those new fangled sets with wide screen and HD compatibility - although they are still quite expensive!

Did the electrical work being done cause this? It could have, but I doubt it. When ever I go away or know that I am not going to be using a tv for a while, I always unplug it. Little do most people know that even though the set is OFF, it is still ON a little bit. The remote receiver must always be on so that it can receive the signal from the remote commander when you want to watch tv. Therefore, it is always possible for some backward trending pulse to get into the set. For example, an electrical storm can destroy a tv set if it is plugged in - even though it is OFF. But if it is unplugged, it will not be harmed.

Hope this helps you make the right decision.

If this is the tv with the ssb pannel it probibly is bad. They are non repairable and cost $300 to replace. Testing should be done before blaming it on this board. You can get a service manual and the testing equipment.

I have a Philips 50 DLP HDTV MICRO DSPL and I figured the lamp was about to go out because after you would watch tv for about an hour and a half the picture would begin to flicker so I replaced the lamp...

A couple of things to check here. When you replace a lamp some TVs require you to reset the lamp hours meter in the settings in the menu (More common in projectors). If you do not do that then it will only run so many hours before shutting off again. If it is that, you should be able to turn it off and have enough time on the screen to reset that. If that is not the case then you should look into replacing your power supply board.

Just purchased a 42" Philips 42PFL7403D/27. Upon initial setup, I hooked my wires correctly, plugged the TV in, and I get sound, but no picture. I can not get ANY picture at all, even menu screens. How...

if you cannot get any picture at all, even the menu screens, then the set is defective.

My experience with Philips TVs was very similar, mine failed with one day, I exchanged that one, then the next one lasted about two years before failing again. My advice would be to exchange yours for a more reliable brand if you can.

No sound or picture but menu comes up

Check video source like DVD Player has power, check connecting cords, cable connections etc.
when TV gives menu on screen that means TV is fine and problem could be hooked video signal items.

TV turned off itself

Can you still turn it on?
If so, does it stay on with sound?

If the sound is ok and the picture is blue (even when changing channels, inputs, etc.) the lamp may have gone out.

Can you see the TV menu when you press the menu button on the remote or TV?

It could be you need a new lamp again (your might have gotten a defective one) or "temp" is the temperature sensor that is located on top of you lamp, could be bad also. If the lamp gets too hot, the temperature sensor will shut down you lamp so your TV will not catch on fire. If your temperature sensor has gone bad, your lamp will not turn on at all.

Did you have color problems in past? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Amps goes out. But you should have seen some type of distortion from color, red,blue, green. If no color problems then maybe vertical ouput out or horizontal output bad.
