Question about Philips PLO127C 27" TV
Hi, this is a common problem with this type of telly what you find happens is that over time the solder joints on the circuit board become dry and brittle and crack, then what happens is when you switch the telly on the solder joints heat up and this then cause the connection to be lost so it switches the telly off, then once its off the solder cools down and connects properly again and this is why the telly comes back on.
now the only way of solving this problem is to go over every single solder point on the circuit board and re-solder every single solder you find.
how ever this is very time consuming and without having the correct tools such as a really fine soldering iron then the job is not worth doing as you would cause more harm than good.
this isnt something you can do if you have never done this before as certain parts of the telly will remain live up 48 hours after you have unplugged from mains and the volts inside are 10 times higher that your mains voltage so i cant advise you on taking the telly apart to re-solder all the solder joints.
you could pay some one but with the age of the telly it just would not be financially worth doing
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
