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)

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.
Bye for now. 12fixlouie
