There are several things that can cause it. You are best to have an expert technician come in and take some test on it in order to determine if it is from vertical blanking failure or something else. It is not easy to fix this yourself, if you have no experience, because there are a lot of parts that have to be removed before you can reach the components. It could be as simple as a loose connector ribbon or a bust capacitor, but it could also be more complicated. Hence, in my honest opinion, better get a qualified technician.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Tv keeps shuting off


Hello,

It's the problem of overheating in the power supply board of the TV.on the power supply board of the TV there are few capacitors and IC.any of this ic is got short or may be weak.so due to this when you start the TV the current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV.but when the current passes from that weak/faulty part at that time current gets stopped or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off. this is a common problem faced by many other users too.the possible option to solve this issue is to check the power supply board by a meter and continuity tester and replace the faulty component on the board which is short due to which power supply board is getting overheated.its bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician. for required parts it can be easily available from local electronic hardware shop.Hope this will help in solving the problem

When i switch my tv on it has a habit of switching itself off. The red light will still be on and a little green light below it flashes. some days it does it somedays it doesnt. Some times it does it once...


The television is switching itself off to protect itself because there is a problem with it. It may be a bad capacitor, which is usually the case but you have to catch it before it gets any worse. Because then the television will switch itself off and not come back on. The light will just continue to blink and on top of replacing the bad capacitor the entire board the capacitors are attached to might need to be replaced as well as the power supply and main board. Please do not keep turning your television on while it needs repair because it will put itself into a coma and contact a service provider asap.

Color messed up?


If the convergence will not adjust in the customer menu you have a bad convergence IC---this set uses two (50P8341) STK-392-110 IC'S----BOTH, along with any bad resistors around them need to be replaced and the set adjusted with the original remote that came with this set----Most of the Philips do not use the 392-110 chips----this set if made around 2000 may be a Hitachi inside---they made sets for 1 year for Philips.

If you can do the repair yourself you can save a lot of money----you can buy a pair of the chips for about 12 dollars plus shipping on Ebay.

If you cannot do the repair--shop around your area as most shops charge 300-400 for this repair. Whoever you get to do it make sure BOTH chips are replaced!

If a shop says it has to go to the shop--keep looking as any good tech can do this repair in about 1 hour in your home------I have done hundreds of these repairs and charge 200-250 total depending on the set.

If you have any questions or need advice reply to this posting here and I will assist you---I am here to help people.

My Philips 60 inch rear projection TV model


Mute the volume and listen at the rear of the unit. You should be able to hear a fan running since these have hot-spots that require some kind of air movment to keep them from overheating. There are protective circuits that will shut down the power supply once a critical temperature is reached.
The second possibility is the power supply itself; these sophisticated units are very energy efficient but have components in them that age and lose their function over time. The main supply should be fairly easy to spot; it will have larger components on it, some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like.
If the fan is running and it is still shutting down, this supply may need repair or replacement. Look for a part number on the board and inquire at the manufacturer's service center about those possibilities. Have your model & serial numbers of the set available too.

Keeps turning off by itself after about 30 minutes


Is your air intake clean or clogged.. Maybe it's overheating causing it to shut off.. Had the same problem didn't replace the bulb but cleaned the intake and it works great again. Worth a try.. Intake is located on the left back pannel of the tv.. outside pannel pops off easly.

Tv switches off by itself


the tv may be overheating
try putting a small fan blowing air directly behind it.
if this doesnt help then you may need to take it to a repair shop.

Blurry screen


Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to...look white, look dull, look red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images. 

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

if you bought it under one year ago then the retailer should be obliged to either replace it or repair it. I would look into this further, ask to speak to the manager or something casue when a tv switches itself off it indicates an error inside and turns itself off to prevent further damage.
