Question about Philips Televison & Video

Open Question

Model 9P5514 C101 Serial 45390840 Chassis #PTV 836 In the service mode-is there a list a factory presets? My tv has bad color and a friend of a friend came out to help. He didn't write down the settings and now I want to reset it to find out what it should look like. My father in-law said he has one that needed new bulbs. Maybe mine needs it. I get good sound, audio, and am able to make channel changes, just got a crappy picture, (red's are too bright, looks like an old 70's tube that is shot). What can I do?

Philips 43p8341/37, ptv 914 chassis, led code blinks

Let's check and see if we can find the correct board with the problem. A good place to start is to disconnect the jumper jack 1516 [TV unplugged first]. Now plug in the TV, and power the TV on. If the tubes light up and shut down...then the small signal module is at fault. {this contains convergence ICs} Or it could possibly be the ssb [small signal board] is bad. Leave the set unplugged for a few days and plug in and power up this TV..It may work for a few seconds and go down again. These are two good places to start before you pull the boards out...and they are not easy!

Rca tv model # p52770eb chassis # ptk169pabs.trys to turn on but wont clicks 4 times and shuts down will come on in service mode but has no sound in service mode.

There is a diagnostiv computer program that is available that can pin point any problem with that chassis just by clicking on its symptons and it only 25.99 at the following link. they email it and all you do is install the program. Its real user friendly and they provide free tech support by on lline instant messageing. I will post the link the program is listed in their TV diagnostic programs section They have the PTK 169 program. Its a good program to help diagnose and repair your set.

Rca projection tv has sound,no picture or OSD

The 169 is an old chasis but a good one. Many chronc problems can cause these symtons. No high voltage because of bad flyback, or HV spitter defec is the most likely, but there are chonic caps that fail in the power supply as well. This problem will most likely need the assistance of a qualified service professional.

Buttons won't work

You will probably need the service manual for both chassis to straighten that out. I am posting a link where you can purchase one manual that covers the entire series for magnavox PTV 836-PTV 835 it has 2,440 pages. It cost 19.99 and they will email it to you and provide you with free unlimited support that goes with the manual purchase. here is the link if interested in getting the service manual.

Remote Control for Magnavox Big Screen TV (PTV 705-AH01)

sgtdar, list the model & chassis number (located on back of tv), if set is old the universals won`t work because as more newer sets come out they delete the older ones because the chip in the remote will only hold so many codes, BMW Rider
