Question about Philips 32PT5441/37 32" TV

1 Answer

Horizontal lines slowly moving down

Model: Philips 32PT5441/37 In the past few weeks horizontal lines from the top of the picture are moving down mixing with the existing picture. Over time more and more lines from above are moving down, much like if you were slowly peeling down wallpaper from the top. It's about 2 years old, but it has been used a lot. I have tried different video inputs and they're all the same. I haven't changed anything in the physical setup recently. I'm very much expecting to have to buy a new TV, but wanted to see if perhaps there was a simple solution somehow or if it's worth it getting it repaired. Thank you for your time!

Sounds like you have a power supply filtering problem. Perhaps a filter capacitor is going bad. If your set has a switching power supply oscillations from it are getting into the video. You need to have a tech to check it out for you. You should get an estimate first before having it repaired. Stargazer

White horzontal lines on the top of screen

Typical symptom of a faulty screen voltage capacitor. You'd need a schematic to locate the cap and then change it out.

Philips TV showing horizontal lines model 27pt6441/37

You likely have an elevtrlytic capacitor bad on the B+ line to the vertical ouput ic. If you continue to use the set like this it is likely the vertical ouput ic will fail.
