Loss of picture n sound can be from many things. In your case, since you heard a high pitch squeal, it is almost always related to a bad flyback transformer. They can develop intermittent conditions before they finally go.

Therefore, I am confident that you can get the flyback fixed by a local shop for under $100. At least, I suggest you call around, giving them your symptoms like you did here and get their opinion.

It is new enough that there should be no question about the value of getting it fixed.

All the best and let me know if you have further thoughts or comments for me.

Philips 43p8341/37, ptv 914 chassis, led code blinks

Let's check and see if we can find the correct board with the problem. A good place to start is to disconnect the jumper jack 1516 [TV unplugged first]. Now plug in the TV, and power the TV on. If the tubes light up and shut down...then the small signal module is at fault. {this contains convergence ICs} Or it could possibly be the ssb [small signal board] is bad. Leave the set unplugged for a few days and plug in and power up this TV..It may work for a few seconds and go down again. These are two good places to start before you pull the boards out...and they are not easy!

No picture/ power button flashes twice constantly. 2 flash code?

Sorry, but there is no simple answer to your problem.
Bottom line, it needs to be repaired by a qualified technician.
The blinking is a code for what circuit area of the set called for the shutdown.
No matter what it is, there is nothing more you can do.

Ed did you change the yokes when you put the DPTV series CRT into the PTV chassis? If not its most likely the vertical output or the Horizontal output that got destroyed. If you changed the yoke its most likely the HV generator.
On the DPTV chassis that should shutdown the vertical deflection which would leave audio working worse case scenario would also be the HV generator and Horizontal output.

Rca projection tv has sound,no picture or OSD

The 169 is an old chasis but a good one. Many chronc problems can cause these symtons. No high voltage because of bad flyback, or HV spitter defec is the most likely, but there are chonic caps that fail in the power supply as well. This problem will most likely need the assistance of a qualified service professional.

Video blacking out...

Changing all the caps is not the right approach to problem solving.Works cold,but fails after hot is a thermal issue.After set warms up and fails,use cool freeze spray on suspect components to isolate.Determine whether CRT filaments are lit and/or if HV is present.Also,inspect jumper wire from transformer to HV block-if corroded,replace jumper HV lead & HV block w/Mits. parts.
