1.You may have a power circuit malfunction to the inverter on your TV's main board.
2. There is usually a capacitor, or regulator chip on the main board that allows start up for you TV and this section has failed. You r TV needs service.

    It seems you have a main board controller issue which is tied to the start up circuit on the main board. Your TV needs service and the LCD controller may be the problem.
    You may have some resistor blown also.

  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
