Turning on TV after power outage

I have an older Philips TV and after unplugging this TV or having a power outage, it takes for ever for it to turn on again. There is a red light that flickers on the front with an St. I have no manuel for this TV as I bought it second hand. Any answers?

Not sure what you mean by "older", but I assume it's a CRT display. It takes some time for a picture tube to come up from a completely cold start. It has to get all of those electrons hot enough to start flying around, and also build up a high voltage on the screen. You don't notice it in normal operation because the power button doesn't really turn everything off, but just puts the set in standby mode. Unplugging, though, lets everything cool off completely.

If you're talking real antiques, with tube-type amplifiers, then the warmup time could be even longer. I remember as a kid watching the blank screen for a couple of minutes before a picture appeared.

What you describe sounds like normal behavior for a CRT television. Not sure what's up with that flickering red light, though.

I have a Ben. DV 3250 LCD TV I had a power outage when the power came back on My TV did not want to work


Try unplugging it for about an hour, and press the power button several times. After the hour is up, plug it in for 20 minutes before turning it on.

This will clear all the Capacitors of residual electricity and help it to get a "Clean" turn on. Power outages can do some funny things to electronics, as well as very destructive things.

I suggest a good power conditioner be installed, and replaced every few years, on any sensitive or expensive electronics because of this. (Cheep "Power strips" can do more harm than good)

The standby power supply resistors on the inverter board have changed values. You will replace resistors R1217, (820K 1/4 watt), R1218,(820K 1/4 watt) and R1219 (390K 1/4 watt). Please use the values just mentioned. Or you may have the inverter board replaced. Take this note to a TV repair Tech.Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Philips 42PF9956/37 Plasma TV - Looking for y sustain board


it isnt the Y-SUS board, it is the Power supply, iv fixed this exact problem twice in the last month, try turning the tv on, and when it turns green, unplug it real fast, while light is still green, after 15 seconds plug it back in, then hit the power button, if it dont come on, hit the power button again, this time, as soon as it turns off, hit the power button again to turn back on, sometimes you can trick the tv and it will turn on, at least i was able to do it, and once it comes on, it should work fine, untill you turn it off again.

I need help tv plasma phillips


There is a firmware that can be updated via usb from philips. This fw was used to correct the tv powering on with no picture randomly (they called it a maintence session) but it was a problem. The tv would power on on its own and do this..


If that doesnt take care of your problem then the problem is with the main control board. or ssb

If the screen won't come on then the diagnostic will never show. The 4 blinks is an error code. If the set is older than 12 years then it doesn't owe you anything, you got your money's worth out of it. Average life of any tv from that genre is 8-12 years. It's time for a new set, or take it in for an expensive repair ( pending parts availability).
