It is possible it could be a switch but this is usually after extensive use. If it does the same with the remote control chances are it's not the switch. These sets had problems with the vertical circuit as well. I've fixed a lot of these with vertical problems. It should not run but about $80-$100 to repair if it is a vertical problem. These sets have a lot of safety cicuits as well so it could be a horizontal circuit problem as well or power supply. Kind of hard to say without a good troubleshooting. Thanks
The answer to this depends on the model. My service literature does not reveal the answer, so you will have to call Philips. Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes first. Even if the remote is programmed properly, the lock will still keep it from turning on.
