the ssb stands for small signal board and is where the microprocessor and eeprom are located. also tuner is on that board. these are not component level repairs therefore circuit board would need to be replaced. costs very but to be honest can vary from 300 to 1000 dollars from my experience depending on where your able to get the part. andrews electronics and vance baldwin are main distributors for philips parts but if you google part number may find renewed part available. part number is going to be located on tuner. should be 3 12 numeric numbers on tuner. top number with s to left is correct number. hope this helps. dan
There is a firmware that can be updated via usb from philips. This fw was used to correct the tv powering on with no picture randomly (they called it a maintence session) but it was a problem. The tv would power on on its own and do this..
If that doesnt take care of your problem then the problem is with the main control board. or ssb
This problem is linked to a power supply issue. The SSB is part of the power supply chain and will cause system failure if the board is defective. I have seen to many of these type of modular power supply boards fail. The shutdown circuit is detecting excessive voltage, and in the process of turning off the set it may have blown something else. I am begining to suspect a design flaw, which happens from time to time. I would suggest having a qualified TV repair person take a look at the TV and work on it.
replacing ssb for 4 blink error was correct as error is communication failure specific to micro processor on ssb. getting an alternate error after replacing ssb would suggest either wrong ssb or defective ssb. verify vendor number on ssb tuner on original and new ssb and if same reorder that board and if not order per original board
The SSB is small self contained board that u connect your Antenna, and HDMI to. An error three is a communication error between the SSB and to Logic board ( located underneath the SSB on the back fo the plasma panel that is just below the power supply. U can check parts.com and see if u want to purchase a SSB for this TV. Is the 3blinking lights coming from the front of the TV. Also check the power supply and see how many times the green led blinks on the upper left of the power supply and let me know.
Do u loose picture and audio at the same time and when the led starts to flash on the front of the TV is it a red 5 ? If so there is an oscillating crystal that is getting really hot on the SSB. 27Mhz xtal. if need more specifics ill get the philips replacement part number.and where it is located of the SSB.
What model is this? Because it says Magnavox 27ms343s which is a 27' tv. The 55' has a different board. Small Signal Board is SSB, you also have a LSB. Your best bet is to call 1-800-844-7871 which is PTS and give them the model # and order the board. It will be the cheapest you can find. If that person is right then you can get the board here. And even if you have question you can ask to speak to a tech and give them the problem. Hope this helps
