Question about Philips TP3284C 32" TV

1 Answer

Power light blinks repeatedly on my Philips TP3284C

I'm not exactly sure what caused the TV to do this but, it will no longer turn on. You can hear the relay click, but the tube does not try to turn on. The power light just blinks continuously until unplugged. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    If you hold power button for 3 seconds it gives five blinks repeatedly. Actually if I press any other button (Chan/Vol), power light comes on (click) and goes back off (click). There is nothing damaged on the circuit board either. Could someone tell me how to check the HOT to see if it is damaged?

Where is the gas cut off relay on a 1988 190e benz

The relays are located in the central electrics unit behind the fuses and in an additional holder just to the front of the main circuit. This particular one I am not sure.
If you think it is suspect or a problem with the system turn the engine. If the relay is working you should hear a click as it is energised. Hearing this may lead you to it. Unfortunately if you don't hear the click the relay is beat and I am afraid I still cannot point to the exact location. If you do hear the click and still have a problem If it is being energised you have a problem with a component or wiring. I am not an expert but I hope this helps.

I don't know why but this got my TV on.
I took off the back cover and found the source of the clicking.
Two blue plastic rectangular relays in the exact middle.
When I pushed the power button, I felt the top relay click, and I saw a flash from the bottom one. (they are right next to each other)
I took a hair dryer and placed it over the two relays for about 1 minute and tried the power.
It clicked only 4 times and then came on!!!!!!!!!
For some reason heat helps the relay.
If anyone is a tech and can explain this, please do.
Good luck!!!!
My tv is on and it didn't cost me anything.
I just can't turn it off now!!!

Tv was working fine...then shut itself off.

there is no reset button on any tvs that stop in 1980s when they no longer used tubes in chassis,s now the only tube is your picture tube. you probly have a shorted hori out put transistor.

No picture or sound

If you had a burning smell, well the board is toast. These sets are made to replace the entire board at one time. Before installing the replacement module, the picture tube should be checked. A defective picture tube ( such as a G1 short) may cause a failure in the power supply section.
