Question about Philips 17MF200V Television

Open Question

Only static We bought this TV for our RV. It worked great, but unfortunately got knocked off of the shelf. Is it a goner??? Now, We can turn on power on the TV or with the remote, but nothing else. None of the other buttons on the TV or remote function. When turned on, all We get is black and white static, like if no antenna signal on the old sets. I am fairly capable of doing minor repairs, I am just not sure where to start. Is this maybe something a pro could fix? Thanks for your help. Troy

This is most likely a power supply failure. It can be due to some other components in other areas of the set also being defective.

I had a similar problem. You likely have 1 or more bad capacitors on the power supply board. You can easily identify them - they have a raised or rounded appearance on the top instead of being flat. Remove the power supply board and take to electronics repair shop and have them replaced. The capacitors only cost me $4.24 for two. Now mine works fine. The repair man replaced them for free. It took him only 10 minutes to solder them on the board. Easy, cheap fix but manufacturer won't tell you that. I fixed this on 1-02-09. My 2 bad capacitors were "3300uf 10v" and I replaced with "3300uf 16v" but you might be able to replace with "4700uf 35 v" also.

You probably would want a qualified technician to take a look at it.

Lg 42ld520. Have used this tv with no problems for about 6 years. Now when I turn it on it looks and works great for about 1 minute then the screen turns a solid red green or blue color and the speakers...

My guess is : It's a goner. New 42 inch sets are not so expensive any more. The repair on this model may be nearly as much as just buying a new set. Do a google or youtube search on this you may find some home remedies; worth a try, but don't count on it.

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working

My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

Touch Screen is dead on my xperia!! Help plz??

digitizer is busted. You can try to pull it apart using a guitar pick and check the ribbon cable, but it's probably a goner. Sorry for your loss, touchscreens hate falls.

Got a new ALBA 16WHDF TV SERIAL NUMBER 6624179 CRACKED THE SCREEN WHEN PUTTING ON SHELF. STILL WORKING. CAN A NEW SCREEN BE BOUGHT

The screen is unfortunately not replaceable as a spare part. It will continue to work until the damage grows from the inside of the screen. Unless you were lucky enough not to have cracked the protective inner screen, it will stay fine.

I touch the on/off button on the Prima TV to turn

I am sure you had some strong static electricity. The static spark arced to inside of the TV in to the circuit board. Many of the low cost TV sets have poor static electricity protection.
In most cases there is damaged caused by static shock to electronic devices.
Just for curiosity, you can try unplugging the set from the AC mins and plugging it back in to do a simple reset, in case there is no damage and some logic device became hung up.
Last year I picked up my mobile phone and got a static shock from it. I had to get a new phone. This phone never worked again!

1986 tv won't turn on

Great TV you bought.
At this point I would say it might not even be worthy to get the TV fix due to the age unless you can do it yourself.
In my opinion you can save the money from the repair to buy a new TV.
Hope you do not upset with the messenger LOL.

PLTV-32 GOOD PICTURE, Static Sound

If it is under warranty, you would be better off the return it for an exchange as the main board will need to be replaced. this board is not cheap. Good Luck
