Black Screen of Death

What do you think of downloading these "repairs" from Philips? Do they fix this problem: screen goes black with no sound for about 7 seconds. My out of warranty Philips 32" LCD Flat Screen has a USB connection on the side. Should I try giving cyberspace a shot at it?

I have the same problem. I've just upgraded the software on the TV and am hoping that fixes the problem. Seems to only happen when I first turn on the tv for the day. Once its up it seems to be fine. (power cycling a few times to get it to stay though)

    I have a similar problem with my PHilips LCD flatscreen. I am watching Tivo or a DVD and it goes black for about 7 seconds. If you know of a solution please tell me. I found a few videos on youtube about it and i am still searching.

Philips flat screen tv


Board for the screen has a bad component or a bad solder joint. It will need to go to a repair shop. It may be cheaper to replace the tv.

I get sound, can change the channels, etc, but my Polaroid television screen has no picture whatsoever; it's just a black screen.


lubbarlubab, Looks like you will need to get a power supply repaired/replaced in your unit. Before you call out the service guy, you should spend 30-40minutes at YOUTUBE and view some "LCD-TV repair" videos and also videos of "LCD monitor repair" and LEARN what are the most common components that are causing this plague of "BLACK SCREEN of DEATH" to disrupt your life. If the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" fail to light-up due to a failure of a single or multiple $2 parts on a power supply board you have a black screen!! This problem is also very common to LCD computer monitors. Try to view a vid by someone called "cal22583" who did his own repair to a Philips 42" or 50" unit. If this was of some help please rate on fixya.

Screen lower half goes black/blank


The lower "Y Buffer" board is defective. Best repaired by a technician, or contact Phillips support for the part if you think you are able to replace a small circuit board on your own.

Philips 32PF7320A black screen


If the power lamp is flashing 5 times when it does this, you may need a new power supply. Otherwise, I would suspect a bad (solder) connection in the power supply.
