Question about Philips 30PW633R 32" TV

1 Answer

Phillips TV not really turning on

This is technically two problems (could be related, I'm no expert). 1) Occasionally the screen will go wavy on me and make a high pitched whine. Annoying, but not life threatening, so to speak. I can be perfectly happy with the wavy if my next problem can be fixed... 2) This is the serious problem... now the TV won't turn on. The little green light will flash, and I hear click from inside the TV. Also, I hear the screen static up for a second. This happened once before and a few days later the TV worked fine again. It just happened again (been about 3 weeks since the last time) and I'd like to get to the bottom of this problem if I can. *Disclaimer* I have no clue about the inner mysteries of a TV set, so if you can, keep it simple. I can solder if I need to, just expain how and where as if I was a slow-witted four year old :) Thanks in advance!

You can try to check if these are a couple of bad solder joints on the board. You might have alot of dry joints. Take carethat the tv is unplugged and try it out. before starting, try shorting the pins of the largest capacitor in your tv set, to make sure you do not take an electric shock. Best Regards Patrick

Green screen with red and blue wavy lines

This is "NOT" meant as "expert" advice...as this is not my area...HOWEVER...I see no one has answered this yet...AND I got some good help from here a year or so ago that worked for me!

When I had a similar "green screen" problem with my SONY projection tv...the guy helped me by having me make "MINOR" adjustments to the red/blue/green etc knobs behind the panel. These were three small black plastic pieces and needed less than a 1/16 of an inch adjustment...try adjusting one at a time and giving it few seconds after each adjustment. It worked for me..at least for a while (till my wife gave it away to a friend because it was "too big"...ah! women!!! LOL)...hope this helps. (NON-expert help!)
