Question about Philips 60PP9363 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

When I turn the set on, the power light comes on but the screen remains dead

A few weeks ago i was watching tv... the set suddenly went dark but the red 'power' light remained on. I unplugged it and attempted to try again the next day but no go... same problem. I called a repair company to take a look at it; they poked around for a few minutes then came out and said it would cost me over $400 to fix. He gave me a lot of technical jargon to explain the cost but I sent him away... perhaps he is right, but I wanted to check around first. A friend says that it could just be a blown bulb or something. The set is only about 3 or 4 years old, is it possible that it has failed so soon? Thanks, folks! --Jeremiah--

I had the a similar issue. My TV broke - no sound and no video but the power light was still on.

I gave up and called in a repair tech.

He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes by replacing a bad IC chip. He informed me that this is a very common problem with the older Magnavox TV sets and that its typicaly the same chip that fails.

I spent over 300.00 for the repair. The parts cost less than 20.00.

To help others in the same boat I put together a how to guide and parts kit on www.magnavoxhelp.com .  I'm not sure if it will work for you but it may be worth a shot.

I purchased a JVC LT52X579 March 30/09. The TV would phase out by itself and then restart by itself. Some times it would remain on and could be cut off only by unplugging it from my sudge protection...


Hi,
Please unplug TV from wall socket for couple of minutes, replug back in and turn ON.
If still does not power up, try it in another wall socket.
Also check standby/ power light flashing or its solid at TV.
If standby light is flashing or its not lit then TV got power supply problem and requires qualified TV tech. I hope TV is still under warranty so ask for warranty cover to store.
Thanks.
