Question about Philips 34PW9817 34" TV
You will be watching TV and it just turns itself off and the red light continuously blinks. The only way I have been able to get the TV to come back on is to unplug the TV and count to 10 and plug it back in.
I guess the guy never fixed the problem since he never updated his post. PEOPLE UPDATE YOUR POSTS OTHERWISE YOURE A TAKER! Karma will get you.

I am having the same problems with my 34PW9817. I spoke with someone at a Philips service depot today regarding the problem and they suggested that I unplug the unit and leave it that way overnight. The tech told me that more often that I would expect, this solution fixes the problem. They mentioned something about this allowing the microprocessor to reset itself. If that doesn't work then I am supposed to expect a repair of between $210 and $265 for problems relating to the power supply. The backlog on getting the unit in and out of the service depot is about 5 days for my area (Denton, TX). I am planning to try the reset tonight but do not expect this to really do much. The problem didn't start until my last move (San Antonio -> Dallas) and other than this, I have had excellent service and picture quality out of the unit. Will update this post after I rectify the problem. David

Hi there, If the tele has been on for some time so that it has finished warming up inside and then shuts off, it could be an overheating problem. If the tele switched itself off radomly after switch on from cold, then there may be a dodgy connection or component. If you are familiar with what circuits are in this tele, especially the high voltage ones, try using a freezer spray, if you can locate the circuit which controls fault diagnosis. Make sure any fans are running, if there is one, and that dust has not built up on hot components. Lastly, if it is a regulator problem, I would have thought you would see other symptoms, such as a distorted, changing picture at irregular times, followed eventually by shut down. Good luck.

Sounds like you have a power supply problem. Possibly the regulation circuit.
