Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Black Picture I had just bought this TV (Philips 50P8341A) and got it home for a few days it worked perfectly. Now all of a sudden the picture screen is like going black and stays like that for a minute and then the picture comes back... and it keeps repeating this.. sometimes it will stay on for awhile, then starts to go black again. Can someone maybe give me good advice on what could possibly wrong. I was going to get a tech. to look at it, but its going to be expensive. Thanks!

The picture coming on then going off to a totally black screen is a sign of the high voltage generator being marginal in its performance.

The repair may be simple and inexpensive; or something more sinister. The technician will have to tell you.

Let me know the outcome. I am very interested in this rather strange case.

I bought philips model no. 47pfl7403d/27 in 2008 .Suddenly last month it started skipping picture but we could hear sound.After few days it started smelling like something is burning and it stopped...

Seal deal w/ ours. I took it apart and the power supply board had the burn marks on it. Just ordered another power supply board (pn: 272217100571) for ~ $100. TV back panel comes off fairly easily to get at boards.
