It's hard to find new parts for older sets like that one. It is very common to have to get boards rebuilt in older sets. Being the a/v board, I would feel pretty safe using a rebuilt board as long as lightning doesn't hit again. There isn't much that will cause one to fail other than lightning. A lot of shops will give you an estimate to replace the set, that you will then give to your insurance company if it's going to be that expensive.

Problem with sound and imput on 46


take the back off the TV, locate and remove the audio circuit board, order new board probably less than $40 online . to find which one it is just Google the make and model of the TV and ask for the board blank # and revision of the audio board/ video input board if not the same board then repeat same steps for that board also.... don't be discouraged it seems like "Yea Right" but its very easy all the replacement parts are readily available for almost all flat screens right here online for cheap! repair man don't want ya to know that though! Good Luck!!!

Pioneer elite vsx-49tx Does anyone know of known issues with this unit? I cant get any sound output to my speakers, I can get sound to my headphones only if I use direct, but any other settings it goes out


If you have no sound, you can try the multi channel inputs on the back after switching to the multi chan input. If you have sound that way, you have a DSP problem. I can repair this issue to the component level, as many customers have found, the boards are very expensive, and no longer available. If you're interested in repairing your receiver, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. There you will find the seminar I wrote for Pioneer, when I worked there as a Field Service Engineer, specializing in audio. You can contact me directly from my website. Thanks you.

Im here in candaba,pampanga,my 32''inches philips tv is cannot open.the repair man man said,because of thunder thats why they some wires burn....the repair man said,go to philips service...


Hello -

So, you reside in the Philippines. I suspect it was a nearby lightening strike which damaged some of your TV wires and not thunder.

This is the link to the Philips Philippines home page:
https://www.philips.com.ph/

Note: I found the web site for Philips Philippines by using Google, my favorite search engine, and using the following search phrase:
Philips TV Philippines

On that page you will find the link for SUPPORT. Click or tap on that link.

You will be brought to the Philips (Philippines) Consumer Care page:
https://www.philips.com.ph/c-m/consumer-support

Scroll down that page to find the icon and link for SERVICE AND REPAIR. Click or tap on that link.

You will be brought to the page for CONTACT PHILIPS PHILIPPINES:
https://www.philips.com.ph/content/B2C/en_PH/support-home/support-contact-page.html

Scroll down to see the telephone number to call regarding Philips LED TVs. Call the telephone number listed to find where the nearest Philips TV repair center is located.

I am answering from the USA.

Best wishes.

Power on, black screen, no audio, no video..........


Is this something you can handle repairing before we get started? There are several items that would need to be checked and if your not handy around live electrical circuits and boards then I suggest you call a repair man. These sets have plenty of high voltage areas that need to be checked. Have you checked the bulb and made sure it is not burned out? Are there any blinking codes on the front of the set? if so what is the color and pattern. I need this to help diagnose the issue.
Other wise I suspect a open solder joint in the convergence boards.
the most likely culprit for this is the stk chips on the convergence board (JVC didn't put nearly enough heat sink compound on should be a small layer all the way across they put on a couple dabs) I hear tale you can check this out by disconnecting the convergence board and turning on the set . only go after the convergence board from the front (behind the speaker grill is another panel, the convergence card is right behind there) there is a sneak circuit which will kick in possibly destroying at least the dvi input and mabie more if the set is powered on with the back removed and you didn't put a jumper in the right place or cover over a hole in the back of the dvi module.
The CRT driver ICs are prone to shorting and cause this symptom Often then is a small burn mark on the CRT board under the affected IC (but not always). The IC should be a TDA6111Q. Be sure to note the proper position
of the IC as it should face with the letters TOWARD the heat sink!!!

Had a lightning strike and the receiver will no longer turn on.


First try plugging the receiver into an outlet that is known to work. If it still does not work, look at the following:

Hopefully there is a fuse on your receiver that is blown. 2 options before it needs to be repaired by a professional:

1. Look on the back for any type of fusing house. It would be labeled "Fuse" and they are commonly held in by what looks to be a flat head screw.
2. If there is no fuse on the back of the unit, it is very possible that there is an internal fuse. Open the chassis, and carefully look for a fuse. It usually is about 1/4"diameter cylinder that is about an inch long. IF you are unfamiliar with electronics, it may be wise to skip the opening of your receiver.

Lightning Strikes can do a lot of damage. Hopefully its a blown fuse.

There is no picture no menu nothing will come on picture wise


Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input. Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem. Check all the video cables at the back of TV. Check Light /Color settings. If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault. If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced: The inverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to the backlight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty you can get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen by pointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface from very near distance. The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter. The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors. This is quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCD cable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged. Input/Output Signal boards. This are the boards where you connect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective, then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faulty board. If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual. If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Had a lightning strike near our house. After the strike we are no longer able to get a picture on our TV. Running a Yamaha RVX 1600 receiver. Screen on the receiver says HDMI ERROR and HDCP ERROR...


That strike could easily blown an internal component either via the mains supply or aerial, near where I live in those bad old days before a local TV relay got fitted with protection a strike on it would blow every "suitable" house in the main road that led to it as it followed along that mains cable.

If you are seeing nothing (including a set up menu) then its had it because repair costs make it not worth it, claim on insurance possibly house contents as a service contract would exclude it I would think.

If you can see the menu then try initial set up and see if that helps restore things if not then it would be a new set.

Hope this helps..........

We had a near lightning strike and now my tv (sanyo model ht27744)doesn't want to come on.


Lightening may have caused a surge on your power lines to the house and to the outlet the TV was on.
Do other things work on that outlet? If not you tripped a power breaker.If they do work check this.
Unplug the TV for 2 min or more and plug back in.
Try bypassing your surge protector you had it plugged into. It could have died when the lightening struck.
(no surge protector?) Bet you'll buy one for your next TV.
Look for 3000 joules and up rating for a surge protector and insure it has protection for a cable/antenna input too.
If this doesn't work the TV may be fried or internal fuse blown.
Time to take it to a repair shop or depending on it's age (5 years+) it may be time to buy a new TV and surge protector.
Near Lightening strikes can effect appliances from several inputs that could be affected from outside like Power, Cable, Antennas, Phone Lines that come into your house.
