Call a serviceman. He's saying its likely your power supply and thats certainly much less expensive than a new tv.

It sounds that the fault is with its main board. It will be best to contact the authorized service center for Philips in this case.

Blue screen says no signal. how do I change the source without a remote?


usually there are buttons located on top or side of tv, click on the main or menu button, and change the tv input to appropriate channel, refer to owner's manual make sure it is not on video1 or aux 1 as this may cause the blue screen, if there are no buttons, you will need to get or borrow the remote corresponding to that television, if using a universal, check the code you will need for that tv.

TV stuck on blue video screen


This usually happens when you are on a source that doesn't have a signal such as a channel with no signal or an AV input that is not connected.

You should look for a button that has TV/VCR or TV/VIDEO on it. I've guessing that you've already tried to change the channel but if not try that.

Last ditch effort in that case may be to unplug the TV for a few secouds. Warning- this may wipe out any settings you have entered such as the channel programming (which channels to skip while surfing) but along with that goes the blue screen.

Blue screen, no video, but has sound


Did you hit the "input" or "video source" button by mistake on the remote or TV? That would change the input from the one the cable/video source uses. You're getting sound, so it's working......sounds as if the input was maybe changed. I'd hit the input/video source button a few times to go through all the available inputs and see if you get video back.

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

njdb,
Look on the remote for keys that are labled tv/vcr or source or input... In fact, if you go to the front of the unit - that's a Sanyo right - find the grouping of buttons that change the channel, volume etc.. There should be a button marked source or input there.. Press it as many times as it takes to get back to the input source your cable is on...
If you have any problems let me know...
