At first my t.v. would shut off by its self ad continue to do for about 10 minutes, then it would stop and work fine for a couple of days then start turning off again. Now I have to power off and on until the picture pops up and I have no sound now. Do you think this could be the IC chip you talked about in a blog or the Large Signal Board or both or what?

Re: 50' Philips tv issues
If you power up/down a bunch of times in a row (10-20 times) Do you see a bright flash before it shuts down? If so my guess is a faulty resistor and not the chip I mentioned earlier. I have seen a few posts on this site in regards to faulty resistors on the CRT board(s). If they go bad the set will shut down so that it does not damage the CRT.

Not sure what the code means (mine occurred after a slight power surge...maybe an overheat or some kind of overload), but after leaving the tv off for 10-15 minutes the flashing stopped and the picture was fine on restart. I know you've probably figured this out already, but hope it helps somebody because Philips apparently does not want to make it easy to figure out what these codes mean.
Mine is a 190s Monitor and not a TV with any kind of remote unit controlling it. I had this issue about a year ago and it sorted it's self after a week or so left turned off. This makes me wonder if it has to do with heat and humidity affecting the micro switches located behind the push button controls on the removable screen surround.
The lamp may be starting to go, the symptoms you describe are classic warning signs. You could unplug tv let it cool down and check lamp most likely the glass will not look clear maybe a little milky or smoky in areas..dead give away.
hello dm beatty,
First i must ask if you have anything placed on top of the tv? second what i would suggest is for a professional repairman to come and fix it. There are proceedures which you may do it yourself but if you were to mess up it would cost you a new tv. If you would like more assistance to do it yourself place post again and i will be happy to assist.
Please post what you do and how you did it.
I look forward to your posts.
