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.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

My TV fails to turn on when switched on. The green light keeps blinking.


Your set has a power supply problem. If it is still under warranty, call for a replacement.

If you want to have it fixed out of warranty, either contact Philips service or a good local repair shop.

My Philips Plamsa won't turn on, has a black screen but the power light is on. There is also a constant clicking noise. Any ideas of what this might be. The tv is a couple of years old.



The picture is White or Black:

1. Adjust picture setting such as brightness or contrast

2. Check the color settings

3. Check to ensure you cable connections are connected properly.

NO PICTURE AND SWITCHING ITSELF OFF, SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


Most likely you have a power supply problem. Capacitors go bad in the power supply causing voltages to fluctuate when the set is trying to start. Have a repair shop check it out.

Red light flashing


Your TV is in Protection Mode right now. A part inside the TV has failed and the TV will not turn ON to prevent other parts from being damaged. The red light blinking is an error code for diagnosing the problem part on the one of the power supply boards. The problem boards that need to be looked at is the Backlight Inverter Board or the Main Power Supply Board.
There is a slim chance you can leave the TV unplugged for an hour so the TV can discharge and reset itself. But other than that, I would use the warranty if possible. The TV repair shop maybe expensive, so get some price quotes to see if it worth the trouble.

Crack on the inside screen of my 42" Philips Plasma TV


This is a known problem with Philips. If you keep on them they will work with you. Another option is call a repair shop in your area and see if they can help you out. Sometimes a repair shop will help out if you allow them to do the service if they are able to get Philips to pay for the repair.
Good Luck

Tele will not stay on


The tv has an error code thats its way of telling you there is something wrong so it shuts itself down to protect itself. I would have it looked at or call philips and they can tell you what that means. hope that helps.
