    it won't turn on When plugged in you hear a high frequeny beeping

    Original problem was that power would have to be turned on and off a few times before picture/sound would come up. Eventually it would not turn on at all. No humming or buzzing noises occur. Not before it stopped working or now. The green power light is the only thing that comes on. We think it may have to do with High voltage Power source but where it is located or it's part # we have no idea

    gaaa i need this tv for movies

  • ctgardengirl Dec 06, 2008

    takes many tries to get the tv to stay on. First 2 or 3 times, there's alot of clicking noises, like it's trying to click on, but can't. No pic or noise, finally after 10 or 12 more tries, we get a a white flash in top center of screen, then off. So the next 3 or 4 tries, (at about 10 second intervals) we finally get a pic, but wiggly, overlapping letters, finally the next try or 2, the screen straightens itself out properly, but (my) right side of screen is waving a bit, not clear to edge - that straightens out eventually too. Always the same side, never the other. Seems to take even longer to turn on if the room is colder. Would love to have some help here, before junking it and never buying a Philips again...

Ctgarden girl, my set does the EXACT same thing! I too wondered if a cold room was an issue. The set is only 4 years old, and I didn't have this problem in my old place where the room was a lot warmer.

Can someone please help?!?!?!?

I have an TV Phillips L01-1UAC-7638, the issue is, when I turn on the TV, after 15 or 20 seconds the TV turns itself off, but if I change the chanels the TV does not turn off, I mean if the TV is showing...

Hi, you don't mention the full model number, there should be a number on the back of the TV something like this 27PT543S37A, the problem you have seems to be fairly common and if this is your model number you could try this, on philips model 27pt543s37a will not power-up without changing channels for 5 minutes, transistor number 7461 is leaky between collector and base - needs to be replaced, and a capacitor rated 47 uf (microfared) at 25 volts, should be upgraded to a 47 uf at 63 volts, with a temperature rating of 105 degrees vs 85 degrees.

Hope this helps, I am assuming that you are able to use a soldering iron etc.

If you have no experience in electronics/soldering or how and where to get parts please consult a TV technician, dangerous voltages can lurk about in a tv even when not plugged in so please be careful and if at all unsure leave it to the people that know!

In short your tv has a problem on the AV connection, RF using coaxial cable is working okay.

TV randomely turns off

it may just be a static buildup from the dust.
open the tv and blow it out with a air compressor.
