Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Had a severe thunderstorm yesterday (7/23/08). Lightening hit the transformer, all power was out for 6 hours. 3 Televisions. 1, hooked up to modem works fine, 1 hooked up to cable reciever only gets static now and when checking DVD only gets audio and static. One hooked up directly to the cable only clicks on and off. TV in question is a Philips Model 27RF50 S325. How do I get the cable working again with video? or at least DVD?

Upon researching various websites regarding the Model Number for those 2 televisions that blew out, I found a few other people around the US that had the same problem with similar situations. All involving massive thunderstorm power-outages.

It appears that since out TV's are both 5-6 years old, they are worthless, both covered under homeowners but for almost nothing. It's not worth fixing. So, decided to purchase 2 more lower quality televisions as this will most likely happen again when the next storm hits. Thank god we found out that this is a repeat issue before we purchased a really expensive television.

Should I replace my lamp for my Panasonic 1080i htd t.v. pt-50LC14


Replacing a lamp won't work. There is not even one lamp in your TV. I'm afraid the lightening has done more damage than can be repaired. Even when some tech manages to repair te error, the TV can have the next error in days or weeks.

Lightening struck nearby and the tv went out. Now


Obviously the tv took the hit but the dvd player was spared. check and replace the fuse in the tv if it's open. If this does not fix it then get an est and file a claim with you homeowners insurance.

Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off


a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.

No power.its plugged into the outlet and it works. red power buttom not on tv


HELLO. it sounds like it could be a couple of things why your set will not come on. 1. you could have a blown fuse.on the chassis. 2. you could have a bad power supplly transformer. 3. you could have a bad horizontal output transistor and a bad fly back transformer. it could be one of them or both of them as well as a blown fuse. because the fuse is blown from the horizontal output transistor burning out or the fly back transformer burning up. check and see if you have a burnt fuse, the size iof the fuse will be 5 amp to 6.3 amp fuse on the chassis right inside where the 110 ac cord comes in and hooks to the chassis. the fuse should be right there, look for it. hope this helps you"GOOD LUCK"

I found that the main 5A fuse was blown. After replacing it, the set worked for about 1/2 hour and the problem really was the "switching transformer had a shorted winding.

No power/ clicks 5 times.( At wics end!!!!!!!)


I would suspect either the High voltage distribution block and/or the high voltage transformer as being at the root of your problem, especially with the HOT transistor being bad. If this set went out during a power surge/lightening storm however, all bets are off.
