The TV is going into protective shutdown. What is the model number of your set? I may be able to help you depending on the chassis number.

    I cant find any info on that model number. Can you post the chassis number from the back of the set?

  • Sonny Berry
    Sonny Berry Mar 14, 2008

    that chassis has had some issues with the start up voltages. How are your trouble shooting skills and do you have the service manual with schematics?

    Sadly phillips and RCa are the top two most difficult to diagnose with out service manuals and equipment. Do you know how to check transistors and diodes? If so that is a good place to start by checking the regulators and diodes in the standby power supplies. I feel thats where your problem is. One of the start up voltages is out of tolerance stopping oscilation. I will see if I can locate a service manual. I am a repair tech and part owner at another facility.

My name is Chris.
I have this Phillips Wide Screen TV that didn't have or come with a remote, so I had to go out and buy a universal remote for it today from a BIG W Store. I'm having some technical difficulties & problems with switching and turning it on, but as I use the universal remote to turn on the TV, I'm having a bit of a slight problem with it turning it on, Ok, Yes, it works and Powers on, but there is nothing showing or giving me the indication that there is no picture or sound showing up on this Wide Screen Phillips TV, But there is a little red & green light at the bottome right hand corner that keeps on flashing red when ever I use the universal remote to switch the power on. Is there a possibility, that i can get some help on here, to help me out with any suggestions, is to why I'm not getting any picture or sound showing up on this TV with this universal remote ? Is there anyway that i can maybe get some help with this to help me out with solving my issue with the Phillips Wide Screen TV ?

Phillips 55" rear projection HD ready --power button lights up, but no picture or sound--just a clicking noise. Also, we can no longer adjust the blue convergence. The adjustment screen comes up, but we...

Got our tv in 2004 and we're having the exact same problem. When the blue convergence started going a couple months ago my husband researched the heck out of it and decided it would cost less to just replace the tv with a newer, nicer model rather than repair it. And now, as of last night, we are having the same power issue where the power button goes on, but won't stay on. It just clicks on and off and no sound or picture. Did you ever get yours fixed, or did you end up replacing?

I have a phillips matchline plasma the power light keeps flashing green then starts flashing red is there a problem with the connection between the tv and the master box?? plz help!

According to " Consumer Affairs. com", the problems with seris of Phillips plasmas are innumberable. And they all start with the flashing red light, from 3 - 7 times. Baased on the information you gave, there is something wrong with the TV itself, not your perifrials. I would contact Phillips/ Magnavox to see if they will pay for an authorized sevice center visit, or even ship you a part to solve the problem.

When switching TV on screen turns white and after 30 seconds switches off

This likely has a 10 ohm resistor on the CRT board that is open.  This feeds 200v to the cathodes of the CRT.

Comes on then shuts off

Hello Mha8649,


The TV shuts off because the shutdown circuit it turning the TV set off. The shutdown circuit does this because of an over-current condition. I would advise that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop.


I hope this helps,

Thank you,
