20 Most Recent Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television Questions & Answers

Without verifying that it is in fact the power supply you could be buying a part that may not resolve your issue. If you've had your tv for a while consider replacing it. New tvs cost a fraction of what they once did and you can purchase a refurbished unit for a considerable discount.

Hey, Have you tried to power cycle your remote? That may work, do the TV too. I'll give ya the steps, just follow them and you should be ok. I'll throw in a factory reset as well, but if you're not using a cable box you will have to run another auto scan. anyways start off by unplugging the TV and removing the batteries from the remote control. Let them both sit, you don't have to let the remote sit really, but I do for good measure. You have to let the TV sit for a minimum of 5 minutes. at the end of 5 minutes, you have to find the physical power button on the TV, this means NOT on the remote, but on the TV itself, you have to find this power button, and you have to hold it down for 1 solid minute. Again, any time you can do something extra for good measure, it can't hurt, so if you want to leave it unplugged for 10 minutes and hold the button for 2, go for it, it may help. After you're done with that, power cycle the remote control. Being that your remote seems to be haywire, go ahead and press every single button, this means channel up and down, even if they're on the same button, every one from the top to the bottom, 5 times with no batteries in it. Then hold down the power button on the remote for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries, preferrably with new ones. This completes the power cycles for both the Remote control and the TV. Now, before plugging the TV back in, we have to do the factory reset. Again, hold the power button on the actual TV, and then, while holding down the power button, plug in the power cord, wait for a couple of seconds, and then release the power button. Wait for a moment, and then turn the TV on. This completes the factory reset.

The reason for all of this, is, power cycle the remote to drain it's capacitors and reset it, power cycle the TV incase the Remote sensor is affected by a static electricity build up. Factory reset incase any settings may have caused this. Hope this helps.

Sorry, but there is no simple answer to your problem.
Bottom line, it needs to be repaired by a qualified technician.
The blinking is a code for what circuit area of the set called for the shutdown.
No matter what it is, there is nothing more you can do.

If the light just goes off then look at the ballast . If the whole set goes off then look at the power supply board.

look for the auto convergence in the menue of the tv, and if you have any star wars dvd's, they have a set-up feature, some test patterns to adjust contrast, brightness, etc

Either a short or a power supply problem IF THE MODEL NUMBER LISTED HERE IS CORRECT.If model number here correct the most common problem is the convergence circuit--a short there does and can happen--only simple way to know easily is to UN-solder both the chips this set uses for that and see if set comes on--if it does it will look bad but you know you need to replace both chips.I attach a photo of these type of chips--looking at them will not tell you if they are bad, they have to be (18 pins each) unsoldered and set powered on to know. 12_19_2012_3_30_44_pm.jpg

Can you clarify "blurry", is the color skewed or even 3d looking? I am here to help and if you can post a photo here that would help---see attached photos of convergence problems which can fit the description you gave:12_4_2012_11_22_50_pm.jpg12_4_2012_11_23_17_pm.jpg
