Probably a Bad Power Supply.

Philips... | Answered on Jun 11, 2012


I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.5_21_2012_2_35_23_am.jpg5_21_2012_2_35_44_am.jpg

This has to be done very carefully. Set has to be laid face down on a padded surface that supports the entire frame around the front screen.

One wrong move or downwards pressure in this position and the display will be destroyed or damaged beyond repair.

On a 50 inch it is a two person job----with set safely down--remove base if there---then the 40 plus screws--noting different thread types and lengths.

Careful is the KEY word here.

check a/v cables to make sure they are plugged in properly. Also check them for damage. make sure the tv is on the correct channel. make sure the menu settings on the t.v. or any appliance you may be running it through( vcr,dvd,dvr,etc.) are correct and that they are powered on.

WELL IT MAY SEEM LIKE THE END BUT ITS NOT. YOUR TV HAS BAD CAPACITORS ON THE POWER SUPPLY.. THESE CAPACITORS ARE PREVENTING THE RELAY TO STAY OPEN AND GIVE POWER TO THE REST OF YOUR TELEVISION.. THAT CLICKING SOUND YOU HEAR IS THE RELAY OPENING AND SHUTTING DOWN.. THOSE CAPACITORS NEED TO BE REPLACED.. IF YOU OPEN YOUR TV AND FOLLOW THE ELECTRICAL CORD.. IT FIRST CONNECTS TO YOUR POWER SUPPLY... LOOK FOR BAD CAPACITORS THAT ARE BULGY ON TOP.. OR BLOWN.. REPLACE WITH SAME VALUE... THE VOLTAGE COULD BE A LITTLE HIRE.. BUT TRY TO KEEP THE SAME.. BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANY OF THEM.. MAKE SURE YOUR TV HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED FOR 3 DAYS.. THOSE CAPACITORS HOLD ALOT OF POWER EVEN AFTER DISCONECTED...

Philips TVs **** - whoever said "Just buy a new power board fix ur tv" obviously works for Philips - again, Philips has horrible products that break and no customer service. Everyone that has ever purchased a Philips TV complained about it online. I wish I knew before I bought the piece of broken **** sitting in my living room.

This is what most likely it's happening: some of the electrolytic capacitors in the filtering stages on the output have aged and need a much larger current to charge to the nominal value during startup than what the source is capable of delivering so it's cut off by its safety system.
This is the process: with the tv off the capacitors are completely discharged; when tv the is started the power source gets activated and it's primary circuit starts delivering power to the secondary stages and their filtering capacitors. Because the capacitors are empty the initial current is very high so the power source's primary stage is designed to support it, to a limit; if the capacitors are aged or damaged a big part of the current they receive gets dumped to the ground (basically they are partially shorted) - because of that the current is kept at very high values for longer than it's safe so the safety system of the power source is triggered and the source is stopped (the clicks you hear are from the main power relay going on and off); with the power source off the current drops completely and the capacitor is slightly charged so everything appears normally = the safety system is reset and the process starts again; each process charges the capacitors a little more so the current spike slowly drops with each cycle until the current drop to a tolerable level and the starting process can continue normally.
You will need to open the tv and replace every single capacitor you can find. Each costs less than $2 and this is what you need to know about them

take the back off and plug it in. there is a green LED on the power supply that should show if its getting the 5Vdc standby power . if thats not lit up check the fuses on the power supply . there are 4 fuses on the power supply in the unit. the power supply is a medium sized board right in the middle of the tv when you take the back off . you can probe it for power as well if you have a multimeter , all the voltages are listed on the back of the power supply and clearly marked on the connectors . hope it helps

I have the model Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on and MOST articles on the Internet say it's the Capacitors capictors capictors..I checked all of them. My tv just blinked red lights, had the clicking sound at first power on, but then goes black. No sound. No picture. Nothing. Just blinking red lights.

MINE WAS RESISTOR no. 3318 , a 100 OHM RESISTOR ON POWER SUPPLY BOARD.

I BOUGHT REPLACEMENT FOR .99 CENTS SOLDER IT, AND EVERYTHING WORKED!!!

THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.

JUST A SUGGESTION..
1. CHECK FOR BULGING CAPACITORS (90 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM)
2. THEN CHECK FOR RESISTORS WITH MULTIMETER ( FALLS INTO THE OTHER 10 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM.)

TELL ME IF THAT [email protected]

This is a classic switchmode power supply, has sensed a severe potential problem, and is shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free. There are many, many, many reasons that display this symptom, one must work through the troubleshooting steps to isolate and identify, the Cause and repair that and any damage done

Hi.

When buffer boards are faulty, the Sustain board usually blow. The old sustain boards probably blew because of a faulty buffer boards. The capacitor on new board has blown for the same reason. Test buffer and eventually replace them.

Hello
What did you mean by this question?

gopakumarg43_72.jpg
This is the picture of the power supply board to your TV. I don't understand what do you want to know about it. Its par number is [3122 423 31812]. Its price is $199. It can be bought either from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town or from the Authorised Service Center for Philips at your town.
If you want anymore, get me by Fixya. OK

Might be the backlight inverter. Hold a flashlight up to the tv when it's turned on, if you see picture, it's the inverter. Try out a company named ShopJimmy.com for parts. They have been wonderful to me in the past, great prices, great customer service. I included a link to your model page on their site. Hope that helps!

I'm sorry that the TV is not displaying any picture on the screen. Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  1. Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper.
  2. Try connecting a different video source like DVD player or VCR and check the operation. If it works with another device, the issue might be with the input device currently.
  3. Also try connecting the device to a different port on the TV if no other devices are available.
  4. If the issue persists, try with a different cable.
  5. Perform a power resetting and check the operation. To perform the power resetting, unplug the TV from wall outlet for more than 2 minutes and then reconnect it.
If the issue persists, after all above troubleshooting steps, service may be required. You can click hear to setup a service for the TV.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications/additional help.
