Question about Sony Flat Panel Televisions

3 Answers

Phillips TV I have a 3-4yrs old Phillips flat-panel TV that is HD capable. Last week I turned it on and the screen had a fuzzy blue color with soft white lines. The picture was still slightly visible but mostly obscured by the blue aura. I tried adjusting everything I knew to do by no change. Is it over? Time to go to Best Buy? Thanks in advance, Daniel

The failure is in the video circuitry but it could also be in the power supply of the TV.
I would say that if this is something you could do to fix the TV yourself, is worthy but if not it might be better to save the money towards a new one. I would also suggest to try to buy the extended warranty if you can because today electronics devices do not seem to last for a long time.

Dear Sir/madam,

You have defective filter capacitor/s in the vertical circuit. Or defective solder connections on the pins of the vertical ic.
If you can bang it on the side & get the picture back up, then you probably have a bad connection in the vertical output circuit.
It should just require resoldering the printed circuit board & I would guess right at the output I.C.. Replace the IC with authorized service centre.


Thanks
Good luck

New 60ph6700 hd 3d tv /watchind hd sports fuzzy grass and background/once in awhile lines run through screen/its only two wks old??


Anything new has a chance of failure the first month or so from cold solder joints on circuit boards. If it passes the first month it may last 8 or 12 years. Send it back under warranty.

My Phillips SLC4 flat screen TV has suddenly


The problem has cleared itself a day later after being switched on/off a few times.I suspect the 'computer part' of the TV (channel processor, instruction decoder etc) received maybe a power glitch or an illegal infrared instruction (2 remotes used at once for example) and 'locked up' leaving just the analogue side operating.
I was going to continue happily using it with just the analogue side slaved to my Hd recorder for digital signals but it seems to have got over whatever it was that upset it.

If I tap the rca jacks in the back the screen gets distorted


You need a hdmi connector from your tv source to the TV. RCA connectors don't have the capability for HD signal transmission. You can use them for a connection but the picture will be fuzzy if trying to watch HD signal. Check your cable/dish box to see if there is a hdmi output. If so, buy a hdmi cable & that should solve your problems.

Open the back cover and check any fuse blow in Y Sustain board or Z Sustain board. If you do find the fuse gone, replace the board. Good luck!
