Picture problem the picture clarity is fine but after the set is turned on for a short time(30 sec)the sides of the picture will collapse in towards the center of the screen for a second then return to normal.It repeats this every few seconds.The top and bottom of the screen remain normal when this happens.Could this be a horazontal hold problem that can be fixed with an adjustment or is the problem more serious?

My Philips 50PF7321D/37 TV picture turns blue after about 30 secs of being on and I cant seem to get it to stop. Also when I turn the TV on it has a black screen with sound for about 15 secs before it

Unplug both the set and a box or receiver if used with the set, remove from power for several minutes and replug all to see if a reboot will help or not.

May I know what is the exact model number of your TV, it is located at the rear cover, manual, and on the receipt. It will help diagnose accurately where the fault came from and confirm the blinking error code.

One of the power supply areas are most likely going intermittent. This can be from cold solder connections on the circuit boards, or from some components failing due to age.

An experienced tech should be able to service your set, but it will be expensive for the time involved. Sometimes these types of faults can be very time consuming to resolve.

TV Blinks on and off

Phil, from your description it sounds like your convergence IC`s are about to fail, the intermittent off/on cycle is because as they heat up there drawing too much current, the bowed collapse tells me it`s the vertical convergence IC that`s the culprit. You need to get a tech out asap to fix this or they could short and take out the power supply as well and that`s just mooore money to fix it, hope this answers your question, BMW Rider
