    I have the exact same problem. Bought the TV 18 months ago, and all of a sudden today I turned it on and get 6 flashing red lights. Called Philips and they weren't much help. Nearest service center is 75 miles away (and I live in a major metropolitan area!). Trying to figure out what to do next. What have others done in this situation? It almost sounds like you might as well throw the set out and start over with a new one. I can't describe how disappointed I am with Philips. They should have a recall on these sets!

    My 37" just developed the same problem today! Philips customer service wasn't too much help, they ended up just pointing me to the service center. I am looking for a service manual online. I'll call service tomorrow when they are open.

    I have the same problem, the tv is only a year and a half old roughly. Ive searched around and 2 common ideas floating around are a thermal fuse failure due to overheating and a power supply problem, the parts for them are relatively cheap its the labour that kills you; 200-500 roughly. Its cheaper to junk it than repair unless you can do it yourself. I wont buy another Philips product again.

SOURCE: My Philips 32PFL5403D LCD TV does not turn on and blinks 6

Normally, this happens when the TV detects a bad circuit board and goes into " Protection Mode ". The blinking red light should be a error trouble code. I don't have the Service Manual on hand for your model number to tell you what the code means. Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Im having problems getting into my old 2007 emails, and they are important to keep, how do i access back into it? my email address is im not shure if it somehow been deleted or...

You will need to call Sbcglobal to see how long they keep emails on their server. Most ISP's purge emails after a couple of years to make room for more emails. They are not out there forever. You need to download important emails and save them yourself. Maybe they can tell you have to access an archived file that still has them. Good Luck, I hope this works for you.

Yes TV can be fixed I prorbably know whats wrong, it more than likely IC 8002 is bad it is in the secondary power supply. The problem with that TV is that its so damn heavy. Although I usally fix on site just because of that. I don't know what part of the states you live but if you want to e-mail me I might have some suggestions. E-mail me and I will see what I can do for you. Thanks, Mike C.E.T.

TV vertical height-Mitsubishi Model CS 35505

If the height has dropped down, you need to first find out why. Most likely there is a bad capacitor in the sweep power supply or the vertical output section. Good Luck
