Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Seomthing you wrote before

Hello... I'm hoping to get some more information about something you posted. I'm a troubleshooting trainer for in a contact center in Florida. I'm hoping to get some help with a television that we are havinf issues with. Here's what you wrote:

The most common problem for this complaint is contaminated coolant for the picture tubes. If you look directly into the three picture tubes you will probably see a haze in the blue one. This is fairly common but requires a knowledgeable service man to take care of.

In reference to the technician...are you suggesting that the picture tube needs to be replaced or is there something else that can be done in order to get this issue taken care of..I'm learning by experience in my new postion, so any help would really be appreciated.

You just need to drain and replace the fluid in the tubes. Its not easy but it can be done by a DIY if they have a service manual.
Check for instuctions.

Troubleshooting crosley dryer thermal fuse

Hello - Usually this type of information is not release to someone who is not a technician (or to a consumer) and it is very rare to find enough information to do it yourself. In most cases this information can be found on the internet; however it is not provided directly from the manufacturer. Typically this is something that you want a certified professional to install/remove for you due to safety and liability reasons. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage. Consider contacting your manufacturer for more details on who in your area can properly repair/install this part. (part usually have a 30 day warranty with tech). I would suggest contacting your manufacturer to provide you a listing of authorized technicians in your area whom may guide you through this process.

:( the phone got reset and its struck with the screen... i cant tap it help me out

One thing that you can do to try to resolve this issue is to take the battery out while the phone is on. This is called a hard shock and will not damage the device. I was a tech trainer for at&t for several years and this is a common troubleshooting technique. If this does not work and the device is under a year old, I would advise you to contact your wireless provider as the handset is under a 1 year warranty from the manufacturer and they will usually replace it at no cost. The down side is that you will lose all of your pictures, games and ringtones if you have any. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.

Weld on left leg broke. How do i get a new one?

hello j ing...... If your trainer is less than one year old contact the place where you bought it. It should still be under warranty. IF not, your best bet is to have that break welded at a local welding shop or auto body shop. Look in the phone book and call around to see who will weld it for you and how much it will cost. Generally, a repair like this will cost between $20 and $40.

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Trying to scan (has previously worked), now it says waiting for PC...then does nothing. I have rebooted both the computer and printer. No luck

Check the cable. Check the settings here. See the general troubleshooting section of this article. Here's a link (and here) to many typical error messages for your printer, though I can't reference your "waiting for PC" message. Troubleshoot the network here., and print a network configuration page to check for errors here.
Hopefully something there will strike a chord.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
