Question about Philips 60P8341 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

My neighbor gave me this TV for my kids to use thier games on. Plugged it in and loud cracking and blue flames and sparks were coming out of the rear. I opened up the back and noticed that it was coming from a large unit attached to the motherboard. it had 3 red cables leadining from it to underneath the bulb housing. Now, when i turn it on there is nothing at all. As if the unit is completely dead. Is it even worth trying to repair?

The arking has possibly damaged the lin output stage and to repair it you will have to fix the source of the problem first, which is the High Voltage Splitter Block. Then repaIr any other damage that may be considerable.
The cause is usually dampness/moisture getting into the HVBlock and over the years that causes an electrical breakdown.
Hope that helps.

EHT arcing takes place. Never switch the TV on, until this fault has been rectified. Doing so, will make too many other faults to occur. Contact any service technician.

It is your projector tub if you are getting alot of blue in the picture. Those guns are very expensive to replace. I am sorry to tell you that. It would be cheaper set from wal-mart for your kids to play on.

The 23" CRT set may have a high voltage breakdown in the flyback transformer or focus divider. Take the back off and operate the set in a dark room. Look for anything that has a blue glow around it or sparks flying when the pop occurs. I won't guarantee this will find your problem, but it is definitive if you see these!

I once had a set with these symptoms. I stopped the blue glow and arcing by covering the focus divider with epoxy. It worked for a couple of months before the divider literally broke apart.

Screen may have a hair line crack in it causing projection to be distorted. Inspect screen very closly with magnifying glass if necessary to insure no cracks. If crack is found replace screen.
