Question about Philips 32PW9308 32" TV

Open Question

Philips 32PW9308 I have had my Philips Philips 32PW9308 for about 4 years and this morning the screen started changing colours and then settled down. I have now turned it back on and the screen is purple/pink in colour with horizontal lines. I can hear the sound, switch it over and even hear SKY when switched on but that is it. I have checked the leads and arial/dish and they seem OK. Another TV in the house works on the same TV arial so I presume it is the 32PW9308. Would it be the tube and is it worth repairing? I hope you can help me. Regards, Roger204

SOURCE: Horizontal lines slowly moving down

Sounds like you have a power supply filtering problem. Perhaps a filter capacitor is going bad. If your set has a switching power supply oscillations from it are getting into the video. You need to have a tech to check it out for you. You should get an estimate first before having it repaired. Stargazer

You have a bad connection on the CRT board thats mounted on the end of the picture tube it sounds like, or the socket on that board that plugs into the TV set is intermittant or has a bad solder connection on it. Good Luck

crt beam current too high causing shutdown as you know. Check cathode voltage of each cathode, normal levels depend on picture is around 130-150V. Missing 200V to crt board. Screen voltage problem normal 300-500V. Flyback or bad crt. ABL circuit problem. Jungle IC.

SOURCE: CVI connection

On a Philips TV the only way I know to switch to any of the inputs is by scanning using channel up or down. This model is capabable of 480P input only at the CVI/Component input. This is not a HD television. It is only a EDTV (enhanced definition) if you try and input anything iver 480P IE: 720p or 1080i, the double image and/or lines is what you will get.

This problems it pretty easy to fix.Just require take the tv apart.Resolders all the holes in the video board that connected to a long CRT tube neck.Should cost $50 -$75 more than that u are being cheated.

My 11 year old Philips 29PT7322 colour tv's screen suddenly went blank and a red light below the screen started flashing. How do I fix the problem

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

Intense white & coloured horizontal line on black background on startup

I wouldn't attempt as the capacitors on a tv store around 25000 volts this is more than enough to kill you and they keep there charge even when the tv is off. Either take it to a repair shop or put that money towards buying a new tv - Do not even attempt to open the tv. (It sounds like maybe a tube has gone or the electromagnet that makes the beam move vertically is gone.

Magnavox mptv68a

Last year i had a phillips 100hz tv which had a similar problem.
There can be one of 2 major problems :A processor chip which controls the colour and the tube which could have failed or both.
This could be an expensive repair if the spares are available,(Usually imported from there singapore branch)
I would first check the warranty and then take it to the agents.

I suspect you crt tube is going and is most likely not worth fixing

There are things you could do a tv service shop could rejuve your picture tube and adjust your screen voltage.

sometimes that does not work

I would start looking for another tv

Toshiba 36zp38b picture problems

With it only being about 3 years old, I would suspect bad solder connections rather than defective components like Capacitors. You may get the symptoms to come and go by slapping the side of the set or jaring it slightly which would prove the bad connection thesis. It is not a permanent cure however and you can make it worse if you keep doing that. A solder repair shouldn't run over $225 in my opinion.
