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

Re: TV won't turn on.
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!

Philips TV model 34PW9815 the LED on the front of the unit turns green when first plugged into electrical outlet, and then immediately starts to flash red. nothing on the unit works and it doesnt respond to controls either on the set or the remote
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.
Dead short in the power supply, possibly the rectifier or the PTC has failed. PTC located in the Primary supply at the point where the coil around the tube plugs into the Main board. Two terminals to be exact. Normally cream in colour if it is an original Philips PTC. If the rectifier is short you may expect to have more items blown. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004
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.
Europe uses a different sound carrier than the UK Europe = 5.5mhz UK = 6.0mhz some sets can be switched in the customer menu others will need to be modified (although this in some cases may not be cost effective)
Nope your gonnas need to get a remote that operates the menu. Theres an original thats available from 1800 remotes or http://www.remotes.com for 50 bucks. Thats like 25 less then the one from phillips! Goord Luck
