The tv may have had a break down in the power supply, or may have "bad" solder connections on the main circuit board. GE tv's were famous for this. If you know someone who can solder electronics and knows how to look for bad solder joints, this may be the fix to your problem. If you have to take it in to get it repaired, it may not be worth it, as the prices of TV's now are very very cheap.

Phillips hd tv. model # 46pp9302/17f We lost


It is possible that your tuner module has some dry solder/weak joints that is causing the fault. Open as before and look into the board very carefully to see if there is any weak spot. Use a good solderring iron to touch up all the suspect areas but be very careful and do not try this if not familiar to solder as it might turn serious. Hence you can ask an electronic technician to check on this and solder up the chroma/processing stages and reset. If this does not solve the issue , the fault could be failure of the concerned IC. Confirm and replace carefully. Hope you get this right.Good day
