Hello,
I have a 42 LCD Philipps TV (42PLF5332D) which is less then two years old. Last week while watching tv, the screen started to screamble and then went black. However, we do have volume and we can still manipulate the tv presets. Do you have any suggestions to what the problem is? And if so, is it worth repairing?

Check the software and if it is not EJ30U_0.101.0.0 go to www.usasupport.com and put the firmware onto a USB stick. It will give you all the instruction on how to do it. If the set still turns off the problem is the SSB. Contact Philips @1-888-744-5477 and have your receipt to make sure the unit is under warranty and they will have a tech come out and fix the set.

Volume turns up by itself


This might be a remote control issue, so try this: remove the batteries from your remote, then press all of its buttons and install new batteries. If the problem persists after that, your TV may require repairs. Service can be obtained, if needed, by carrying your TV in to the place of purchase.

I finally managed to solve this problem by unplugging everything - scarts - HDD cables - power etc and left it for an hour. When I turned it back on again the problem had sorted itself out.

This could be the power supply problem, or the main board. You need technician to fine out what is going on.

This TV constantly shuts itself off.


The issue has been resolved. I removed the back of the TV (pretty easy actually) by laying a blanket over the kitchen table and placing the TV face down. I started with the power supply as an obvious beginning. Both fuses on the board tested fine. And touched up every solder joint with a hot soldering iron in case the problem was a cold solder joint. After this painstaking venture, I performed another visual inspection and noticed a capacitor that had a thin black X on the top of the can. This is a common sign the capacitor has over heated. I located a replacement for $1.20, installed, and successfully powered up the TV. I have had no problems since.
Oh, yeah, I also paid $120 for a BN44-00150A replacement power supply, plus overnight shipping. It actually arrived three weeks later. That was two weeks and six days after I fixed the power supply myself.

Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.


Since you have another TV with the same problem you can try using an antenna(indoor model ok) to see if the cable is causing the problem. If not return TV before the warranty expires.

T.V. turning on


yes my 26" sharp aquous LCD does the same thing, turns itself off and on at random times without explanation. I sent to authorized service center they replaced the power supply under warranty then it failed within 6 months and neither the repair center nor sharp will do anything about it other than sell me a new powersupply for $425.00. I have contacted a power supply repair center in Texas who has vowed to fix it once and for all. We'll see in the next week if they fix it or not.

Samsung LCD Flat Screen TV LN-S2651D - Volume Problem


I lived with it for about six weeks, then took the back off the TV. Just now it seems to be fixed, but I don't know if it will last.

I disconnected the wire leading to the channel up/down, volume up/down and source board, turned on the tv, turned it back off, reconnected the cable, and everything seems fine now.
