Re: Philips cineos picture problem

Are there any magenetic devices like speakers or high amp stereo recievers next to the TV? These blotches could be because of electro-magnetic intereference. Try moving devices away (anything metallic or which has a magnet in it)

Plug tv in and comes on ok but picture resolution apears very slow

There are several possibilities here.

If the picture is very dark and blotchy you may have a bad X-MAIN (ZSUS) board.

It can also be the Y-Main board, but less likely, it usually fails in a different way.

Here are a few useful repairs for your TV we offer:

(Basically just a search of the TV model at the site to see what it comes up with)

Hope it helps!

Philips Cineos flat screen TV vith Ambilight 37PF9631D/10, went in standby and blinking red power led diode once-two times in cicles.

Sounds like an issue with the power supply board. We will have to go component by component and you will need to knowledge of using a multimeter. If you are skilled enough to do this then let me know and I will help you troubleshoot it.

Philips 37PF9431D/37 No Picture

While I can't tell you what this particular code means I know from experience that power boards fail frequently commonly on those TVs. Do you hear a clicking of the power supply first on and then off after a few seconds?

There's a guy or a company on eBay that offers trade-in for faulty power supplys, you should check them out:

Search for 37'' Philips in the title or contact them to ask about it. Used to be $99 flat including return shipping.
