Re: Picture issue

This error is mostly caused by a defective line output transformer T511 (partnumber 1-453-308-31) and line output transistor Q533 (partnumber 9-948-014-40).
Also resistor R518 (2k7, SMD) could have been damaged.
All components are located on the main (A-) board.

Our Insignia NS-30HTV picture is sort of hour-glass shaped on the edges. About 2-3 inches on each side of the picture is missing. How do you fix?

In my experience, this indicative of TV tube failure. However, just to be sure, try resetting the TV to factory defaults by entering the onscreen menus, select Picture, then reset. Also, power-cycle your TV (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). More details can be found in the owner's manual. If these steps don't resolve the display issue, you may call 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada to schedule in-home service.

Picture takes a while to come on

Replace the TV. The average lifespan of direct view CRT based TVs is 8-10 years. Take a leap into the 21st century and pick out a nice flat panel LCD. Take the old RCA attach a rope to it and bring it along on your next fishing trip and use it as an anchor.

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?

Tv turns on but takes about 20 minutes to show the picture

This is the picture tube. If you check shops you can find one that has a picture tube restorer. If they run just the cleaning process it will buy you some time. This is good some times for up to a year

HV Sound no Picture

Sounds as though there is an intermitant, heat-related problem with the HV transformer. You can order this at a tv parts shop or from Sony (probably more expensive) the part number should be on the part or on a schematic. If not, the parts dealer can look it up from the model number.

Good luck! :)

Your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. Go into the menu, turn off the closed captions and the black box will vanish.
