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)

Power light glows orange for a minute then shuts down without ever having a picture or sound. I have replaced the lamp and clean the filters. This is a Philips Cineos Lcos 62 inch.

Watch at turn on to see if lamp fires up for even a second or two--if not either a ballast or the control that turns it on has detected another issue and is not allowing the lamp to come on.

After having our tv in storage for aver a year, now it has a green shadow to it. What could be wrong/

Not sure I understand what you mean by green shadow. I would check the fluid in the green and blue CRTS and verify they are clear. I would do this if the green color seemed fuzzy or blotchy looking on the screen.

When looking on a blank screen, do you see any arc lines of either green, blue or red? If so, you would need to lower the screen voltage for that particular CRT.

There are many issues that can cause that type of problem. Just take it in and pay the low cost for the estimate. It is well worth the money to do it that way.

My ds lite won't turn on both fuses are good the top screen was broke so I tried another screen I had that dident work. So I put the old one back on and now the ds wont turn on .The green lite flashes then...


It's all to do with the top screen... What happens is that when you turn the DS lite on it performs a quick check on the screens to make sure they are connected properly, if one or both are not connected properly then the unit will shut down.
The flashing of the screen shows you that that particular screen is fine whereas the one that does nothing is not connected properly, either through a loose connection or faulty screen/ ribbon.

Your best bet is to buy a new top screen (I usually get mine from ebay for around £10-£12) and fit it. That should sort out your issue.

Any further problems or questions feel free to message me via my profile page.
