Question about Philips 47PFL3603D LCD TV

Open Question

My Philips tv (47PFL3603/27) keeps losing its back-lighting. Well it cuts out about once a week. The sound, channel changing and everything else works just fine, just no picture. You can clearly see that the ultra white lighting is off when you look through the slots on top of the tv. With a suggestion from a friend I unplugged the tv when not in use and the problem goes away for awhile. Any ideas on what is happening to my tv before I call a repairman in? Thank You for your reply.

SOURCE: my 42 inch plasma wont turn back on after power cut?

Go buy a CRT television for $200 and chunk that HD TV. All of them are made in China with the same poor quality. Why seemingly smart Americans would pay good money for such junk is beyond me.  The LCDs are a cash cow for the monitor and TV industry as they are well aware the inverter boards will fail within 3 years time.  The old CRT tvs will work for the next 15 - 20 years without failure. Get you a good ole 36 in sony black stripe tube and kiss the LCD crowd good by.

SOURCE: Television has sound but no picture

You can try unplugging the tv and wait for a couple minutes and then plug it back in... I just did this and now the television works again.

Hello, it sounds like your inverter board is goin out on the set, when you change channels if you notice on almost any TV the screen goes dark and the new channel appears, it sounds like you are not getting enough power out of the inverter board to power up the backlight enough to come on. This is why the sound remains because everything else works fine and the sound is connected to the main board.

Local TV channels drop out after a few minutes


We're still hanging on by our toenails waiting for a helpful response from FixYa. We did contact Philips tech support and they basically said that we need a new TV...so they're sending one to replace this one, and we are sending back the "old" one (that we just bought in December '08).

This may sound silly, but are you changing the channel to the HDMI channel (one of the AV channels)
