Question about Philips Televison & Video
Hi, Yes unfortunately i know what it is. When repairing another make of hdtv one time, I used a different " BALLAST " for testing purposes-it was a little under powered to say the least-but i knew this-it allowed me to determine the bulbs were good. when the bulbs lit using my makeshift apparatus-HALF of the bulbs lit up lit up( dim on one side as well as some flickering! ) therefore you have a power supply that drives the backlights that is going "SOFT". Let FixYa know whatever else we can do to assist you. good luck. Prodzilla. P.S. there is a workaround you may try to give more life to this soft power supply, if able,go into menu and adjust brightness down a few notches until it evens out and stops flickering. Again good luck
