Philips 30PW8420/37 TV Won't Turn On

My Philips 30PW8420/37 is approximately 2 years old and it died while watching a movie Saturday night. It will power on, you can hear the high voltage come up, hear sound for about 2 seconds, then it will power down. You never see any raster on the screen. I'm getting an error code on the LED next to the power button that repeats over and over. One long flash, two short flashes, then three short flashes, and then it will repeat. I have unplugged the set for an hour, two hours, and 24 hours and it doesn't change anything. I called Philips support and all they did was tell me to plug it into a different power outlet, then gave me a phone number for a local service center. I had a year or radio and TV repair in high school and have worked with electronics since 1974, so I am capable of replacing parts if needed and am fully aware of the dangers of working around CRT's.

Any ideas for a fix or what the LED code indicates? If anyone has a service manual or a Sams Photofact for this model that might be very helpful.

Thanks in advance for your help!

    My philips 30pw8420 died too. Power up is no problem but, screen is black and I get one solid green light, then five short green lights and then two short green lights.

    Then it repeats itself.

    I am also looking for the problem.

    It seems I should have done some research before buying this TV.

    TV is only 2-3 years old.

The led code indicates vert failure for one. ( 3 blinks )
The 2 blinks indicates excess beam current of which could be your picture tube or re-adjusting the G2 voltage on the HV transformer which is very critical on philips sets.

GW-1500A Casio has to be sunlight every day otherwise it stops


Hi gregbrands,

If your watch is several years old, I would recommend sending it back to Casio for service and battery replacement. Contrary to what you may hear about solar-powered watches, the rechargeable batteries do not always last for 10-20 years. I've seen some go out in 2-3 years. This is a shorter lifespan than most standard lithium watch batteries.

You may have an authorized Casio service center near you also. If not, contact Casio at the following numbers:

For Repair support in USA at 1-800-706-2534 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00a.m. - 5:00pm EST, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.) For Technical support in USA at 1-800-435-7732 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 8:00pm EST for all products, Saturday / Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m)

The cost of your watch well justifies this kind of service, plus, they will assure it remains waterproof up to its specifications.

Let me know if I can help further.

Thanks, Bill

Stuck on menu screen


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

Possibly you just need a new power supply/battery charger. There is nothing "magic" about the original power supply. Take the player into an electronics supply shop. They should be able to look at it and match

TV will not turn on


Good Morning Chris,
OK, first of all lets unplug the TV and wait 15 minutes for the High Voltage to discharge.
Remove the back and follow the power cord to the power supply. Somewhere around there you should find a fuse. (there may be more than one) get a bright light to look inside and try to find as many fuses as you can. Remove each fuse one at a time and check them with an ohm meter.
If you don't get a good solid reading on any of them replace the fuse or fuses with the exact same rating. Even if you get a reading and the display is jumping around and will not stablize, replace the fuse. Usually a good fuse taken out of the circuit will display a good steady reading on the meter.
I hope this solves your problem.
Have a great day!

Music on DVDs is louder than the dialogue.


In the Audio set up menu, see if there is a setting to turn off surround sound. I believe it's in your owners manual also. LMK
