Question about Philips 32PT6441/37 32" TV

TV making ticking sound when turned on

When I turn the TV on the inside ticks and I get no screen. The ticking lasts for about 10 seconds. The led light on the front of the tv blinks 5 times and then pauses on the led and then repeats 5 times again. I know that is an error troubleshooting code but don't know what it stands for. Any idea what the problem may be? I already swapped out the fuse which was bad, but obviously is not the cause of the ticking.

Re: TV making ticking sound when turned on

Most times I hear that ticking its the high voltage failure ...most likely a shorted HOT fallowed by flyback. the ticking is your shut-down engaged.

Show for one minute then tick tick and shuts off

Check Regulator for 132V +-. Check for 32kv at CRT anode. Try lowering screen control on the flyback.

No picture, then no picture and no sound

if your could hear a slight ticking (tick-tick tick) or whining then some electronic component might have been damaged (shorted). if you have no experience repairing electronic equipments then i suggest you to send your TV to a service station!

Tv won't turn on

Most likly it is a problem in the power supply regulator circuit. pretty common for Toshiba TV sets. If you know about TV serviceing, first thing to replace would be the regulator IC as that is the problem 80% of the time. if that does not help then you will need a schematic to trace out the regulator circuit. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.

TV starts but Does Not show picture or no sound

The Tic Tic sound is a result of the high voltage shutdown circuit. Thats what the circuit does if theres a short in the Highvoltage sweep. like maybe a shorted horizontal output transistor??. The only way to really tell is go in and measure the start up voltage and if the Hivoltage comes up and shuts down its a fault in the shutdown or Hhv regulation circuit . if it dosent come up at all then the faults in the Horizontal sweep circuit . Hope this explains a bit? good luck
