Question about Philips 27PT5441 27" TV

2 Answers

TV won't turn on.

Philips 27PT5441 just decided not to turn on any more. I tried plugging into a couple different outlets- nothing, no poof sound that it used to make when turning on. It won't turn on by remote or from switch on front of the tv. Totally dead. Any thoughts on how to get it to power on again? Thanks

    After a thunder storm, my TV quit working. No power was going to the set. I tried a different plug to no avail.

    for the past couple of months it would take ten mins to turn on the tv because each time i'd turn it on it would immediately shut off. now, the tv won't turn on at all. do you think it is a blown fuse in this case?

If the fuse is good and you will see this when the board is out....You definitly have a bad cap if horizontal deflection. Always suspect a 200 volt capacitor at 1 MF. The caps that go down first are 160volt to 200 volts and less than 10 MF. Always suspect these. And sometimes a 25 volt 47MF cap will be bad in these TVs....been sometime since I repaired one of these aging sets. And another thing to ad is a cap behind the flyback, location 2465 at 100volts 10MF is going bad, replace with care as the PC trace is delicate....becareful. And always look extra close for bad grounds under those transistors!

Sometimes holding down the on button and plugging it in works. If not looks like the fuse for the power button is out.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

My tv won t turn on i just purchased it today i plugged it in and it won t turn on

Check the electrical outlet which the tv is plugged into. Make sure nothing is loose at the outlet as well as on the back of the tv where the power cable plugs in. Another thing to try is plug a different device into that same electrical outlet and see if it turns on. If it doesn't turn on, it could be a faulty electrical outlet. If you've tried both the remote & the power button on the tv, a shot in the dark would be to change the batteries in the remote.
You could always try calling their tech support at 1-800-256-2487. A last resort would be to return the tv from where you purchased it.

My tv only works when i switch the room light on

It sounds to me like you have the tv set plugged into a switched outlet. To check this, I suggest you plug a different device (such as a lamp) into the outlet and see if it does the same thing.
If possible, try plugging in the tv to a different outlet.
Good luck!

If turning the TV on and off makes no difference, try contact Phillips to see if they can talk you through a factory reset. If this does not work, the set may require service.

TV was Fine last night, this morning there is picture, but no sound

Since the you were vacuuming behind the set before this happened, I'm going to assume that you unplugged an input. Check the wiring, not just on the back of the set, but, on the back of the peripherals (DVD, Satelite, cable box, etc.) If wires are connected, then, take a component, such as a VCR or cable box and hook it up to the RF connector (AKA the cable connector) and run it on channel 3 or 4. If you have sound, then, you have a configuration problem and need to rewire your set. Hope this helps.
