Purchased the set in November 2007, connected to direct tv, for a while i kept hearing this clicking noise coming from the set, as if it was trying to turn itself on, at first it would do it at 5am on the dot, doesn't do it anymore, now it happens about 11pm and i believe i caught it at 3am, the screen is black and the blue power light is off, what i do notice is that it is lit in the back( seen the reflection on the living room wall, checked the auto clock and it's on manual. any idea's why this is happening, also the set is plug on power surge as well as the cable box, dvd and vcr. thanks
Last time i saw this problem...tried doing a firmware upgrade to update software...did not work....replacing power supply fixed problem...open uinit up...get p/n from power supply board...try ordering board from andrews electronics in california or send board to PTS electronics for repair/board swap...Be careful...power supply can give you a shock even after its been off for awhile...you can discharge large caps by bridging a 10k ohm resistor across them making sure not to touch anything..JOE ACE

Hi, TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front. Hope these info will help you. Thanks.
i hear a clicking noise- the clicking noise is most likely you ballast trying to power the lamp, but failing. this may indicate a defective ballast if you have recenty purchased a new lamp.I recomend you have your lamp tested to help narrow down the cause of the defect. It's highly unlikely for a new lamp to be dead on arrival
The TV is in protection mode because of a fault with moving it and then coming on briefly I would suspect that the fault is a dry joint ( a solder joint which has fractured) finding it can be time consuming but it is most likely to be around the caps in the line output stage which need resoldering.
Hello there, I'm having a major problem with my TV, I have called all
of the local TV repair shops and they all are the same, they want money
money money before they will even speak with me about the problem I'm
having. This is the only TV in my entire household for a family of 4
and we desperately need the TV in working condition for our kids. I
don't want to have to put out $500 for another set if I don't
absolutely have to.
About 3-4 months ago the TV when turned on, the picture would slowly
come into view and be very scrambled and before the picture would come
into complete view the TV power would shut itself off, but the power
light would remain on. You can hear the "Click" noise when it would
shut itself off.
2-3 seconds after it 'shut itself off' then the TV would make the
"Click" noise (The same noise it makes when you first turn it on), it
would make the "Click" noise over and over and over again but nothing
would happen. So i would turn it off and on again and change the
channel rapidly until after 2-3 minutes it would come into view and
So we decided to leave the TV on 24 hours a day. Then today we awoke
and it was off and making the "clicking" noise over and over and over
again but with no picture or sound. Now it wont even turn on/off it
just sits there and goes "Click, Click Click Click" and doesn't do
I described the problem as best as I can. Here is the TV information and specifications...
Philips 27 Inch Tube TV
Model Number... 27PT54 3S37A
Serial Number... 78438404
Date Code March 2003
Now that I typed the model number there are threads everywhere people
saying the same issue exactly as me, I will read them but please
someone tell me is there anything I can do...
Can anyone explain exactly what is wrong with the Tv and why it's doing this?
Also, what should I expect to pay to repair it?
Any information or help would be appreciated very much.
Thanks in advance,
Just got off the phone with certified Philips shop...they said they
will repair it for $100-$130 with a $25 down payment just drop it off
and he will call me when its done. Does this sound like its worth it or
a rip off?
Hii.... first I like to know the chassis of yor KV27FS100..
sound like problem with regulated parts block.....and can more helpfull if you count the blinking of the LED....sony have selft diagnostic at the LED Blinking.....
You can check the board where the components are mounted and resolder any that look bad. a brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet.
In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer.
all can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace
If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced.
