Does this brown spot persist even on the no input screen? It sounds like a problem with the T-con/LCD panel , but I would like to be sure. Please provide this info so that I can tell you what the problem is.

Sai.

More likely that the Gate drive resistor and diode and the Source resistor may be bad also, do not just put in the new one without checking the surrounding circuits.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Hi.

The red light flashes constantly and TV stays in forced standby because an internal fault had been detected. This state is called protection, and occurrs when a fault is detected.

If problem occurred after moving the TV, then it is often a broken contact (broken solder joint or lose connector inside TV). Disconnect power cord, disconnect any other cable, and test the TV with no cable attached. If the TV starts (it will return no signal), then the problem is one of the cable. If the TV stays in standby, then often there is a broken solder joint because TV has been moved. If the TV has been disconnected while power was on, other common fault is damage to power supply unit. In both situations the TV must be disassembled and tested.

Check cables and do a power reset (disconnect and plug back power cable) first. Ensure that TV is OFF before disconnecting or connecting video cables, or before disconnecting power cord.

Regards.

Ginko.

hello,

Problem is in either power supply or the Y-Sustain board.

The Y-Sustain is a relatively large board out of which go connections to the side of the display; it's therefore closer to either the left or the right side of the display, has at least one rather large heat sink on it and fat power cables connecting it to the main power supply.

Often there are fuses on that board - one or more. Check those.

if they are blown you can try to replace them, but expect them to blow again - usually the whole board needs to be replaced.

Hope this help in solving the problem....

You need to inspect the power supply module, look for blown fuse or bad caps with bulging tops first.

Backlight inverters. If you google the brand the model go to shopjimmy.com and type the brand and see if they have the model. look for back light inverter. They need to be replace. You can also test your RCA components with the a DVD player and see if you get an image.

If you get some pictures the problem is most likely a bad tuner, as when directly connected a video source to the RF (Cable Coax) connector.
Try using an s-video cord instead.
If you never get any picturethe problem is related to the power supply, more precisely, the SMPS output is just a bit high causing the microprocessor to go into protection mode cutting off the horizontal oscillation, but as sound has a different power source from the SMPS, it will work without any problem. You will have to get to a qualified sercive engineer to fix this problem.

The company states they will repalce it but not with this same tv becaise they no longer have it. Yeah I guess so, it's a total piece of ****. The company states they will send a different one and it will probably be better than the one before. ********!! Call them and get an RMA # so you can pay the shipping and get another tv that will work a few months more until the warranty lapses and you;re stuck with it.

Have no picture can be caused by bad T-CON board, bad main board, bad 24vdc power supply for the backlight inverter board, bad backlight inverter board. You need to get some basic understanding how LCD flat panel works so it will guide you how to go about troubleshooting it. Please read and look at the pictures to help you.

First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

hi
seems like you have power suply board problem

I don not recommend getting a universal remote as they often cause more grief when it comes to finding a code that works. Contact the manufacturer or the closest authorised repair agent and they may be able to order a replacement original remote or a substitute. I hope this helps.

Tries unplug,replug the tv about hour later,let the tv resetting itself back to factory setting.The tv should work now.Not,than the power supply board have problems,that the board where the power a/c cord plug into it.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
