The protection circuitry is tripping, either because it is faulty, or because it is sensing a problem (overheating, excessive DC at the output, loss of a regulated voltage supply, etc...) Sounds like it needs surgery.

Can not get the power button to shut down the computer no matter how long I hold it down and the computer appears to stay in hibernation. Will not reboot or do anything when power is applied and power...

Remove the battery and leave off for about 1 minute. Put the battery back in place and press the power button to turn the unit on. immediately after you see system light come on, press and hold the power button and see if it shuts off after a few seconds. If not, then its likely your motherboard is defective.

When pressibng the ON power button, the czmera comes on then immediately shuts off.

If the camera can be turned on by pressing the "play" button, then problem is the lens. If it can not, then the power board (or mainboard) is the problem.

Philips TV model 20PT9007D/17B immediately shuts off after powering on. Pressing channel change keeps the set on but then shuts off when stop pressing channel change.

Sounds like you may have had some fluid go from the screen to the buttons on the main Windex or something, and is causing a short in the buttons. The only way to repair it is to have the main board removed and cleaned or have those buttons replaced.

Whining usually comes from the hard drive and indicates that it's beginning to fail. Locate the hard drive in your machine, hit the power button, then listen to see if the sound is coming from the hard drive area, if so, then the hard drive is beginning to fail. As far as it failing, it may go the next time you turn it on or it my last for months, hard drives a funny that way.
