Phillips tv 60p8341

My tv ssb board went bad and now after replacing it twice because the replacement was bad my tv shows no picture at all. Every time that I turned it off it would switch from AV1 to AV2 or something else. Now the power button flashed 5 time then shut the tv off. I'm at my wits end, what can I do?

My Phillips Big Screen TV is having audio problems I cannot hear anything but the picture is still great. Do you have an solution to resolve my issue?.

I would certainly challenge the fact that your SSB is bad. This SSB is known as the the small signal board. This board is a little larger than a credit card and is seated on top of the signal module( The board with all the RCA jacks and RF connections). It is located inside the TV on the left side of the rear of the TV. I must caution you, the replacement board will exceed any expectations you may have for repair. The cost of this SSB will be near $300 dollars. Then you will need a TV tech to enter the software to correct geometry. This SSB controls the screen size and colors (gray scale) and sound, etc. Sorry to lay the hard core facts. But it will not be feasible to repair this aging TV. I have seen and repaired many of these when they were under warranty! Thanks for asking and show all hands of support.

NO sound.....

You have a bad small signal board [ssb] It is about a 3''X5" video card. About 100 bucks to replace, then you will have to correct the geometry to fill the screen. I understand your frustrations as this TV has philips best color picture and sound. The bad news these are ageing quickly and costly to repair. You heard the news now you decide!!!!! I bet the tv was manufactured in 2001.

I need help tv plasma phillips

There is a firmware that can be updated via usb from philips. This fw was used to correct the tv powering on with no picture randomly (they called it a maintence session) but it was a problem. The tv would power on on its own and do this..

If that doesnt take care of your problem then the problem is with the main control board. or ssb

When using HDMI port the image is pastel like.

Ok let me ask how bad do u want this TV fixed ? Because it might be the SSB and might be the Y-main. When he got the replacement SSB it should have included instructions on how to install a new SSB because its a generic board for several models of TV's. You will need to install the diversity code. If your TV's a 50pf7220 diversity code should be 27. What u need to do first is plug in tv and turn on , next with your remote pointed at IR board type 062598 menu if u do this correctly your tv should turn off on its own. Turn TV back on and see if u have picture now. If yes let me know. because it will need option codes to be installed. If not let me know also because ill let u know how to check to see if PDP is good or defect board.

Thats the DPTV 300 series phillips HDTV its definatly worth fixing. How are your troubleshooting skills. Sounds like either a problem in the LSB or SSB circuits boards. On our website we have replacment circuit boards for that model. Our prices are less than half what others are getting. Let me know if you would like me to post a link, we also have the service manual for your model.

Philips 42PF7320A/37 won't power up Led blinks 7 times

This what to do measure from the logic board which is located under the small signal board and have the AV jacks connected to it. If the voltage is 3.1 or close the problem is with the power supply or a boar connected to the power supply. Unplug the set. Disconnect the Y main board first that will be on the left side of the set facing the back. Plug the set back in if the led is solid replace the Y main and the Y upper lower. If still blinking plug the Y main back in and unplug the X main which is on the right side facing the back. If the led is green replace the X main. If the led is still blinking replace the power supply.
But if the volts are 0 the problem is the SSB or the logic board. In that case take the (SSB) small signal board out the set and place 1 jumper on J8003 and another jumper J8004 of the left side of the power supply. Then place 1 jumper on CN2072 of the lower left part of the logic board. Plug the set back in if the set displays a white, blue ect screen replace the SSB. If not and on the logic board you don't have 1 solid blue led and 1 blinking led data is not flowing and change the logic board.

Need to fix Philiphs model 60p8341 ptv915

unplug the tv and remove the back cover,locate fuses and see if there bad.if so and you replaced a bad fuse and the unit works consider yourself lucky and invest in a surge protector if you dont already have one.if no fuses are bad you have a bad board most likley the power supply board.theres a risk of live voltage so be careful.

No raster, no sound in my big phillips TV

That unit is a PTV916 chassis. The oscilating sound you hear is probably a feedback pulse on the secondary transformer. That would first make me suspect that the HOT (Q802 / 2SD1556)(horizontal output transistor) has shorted. You need to check for any short between the base and emitter pins of that component. If that's the problem properly replacing it should restore normal operation. If that wasn't it, you would next check for failer of the SSB located on the left side of the unit next to the tuner, mounted vertical. That board has been a problem in many of the PTV9xx series chassis. It can be rebuilt, but will take some extensive knowledge and equipment to test. If any of this sounds too complicated I strongly suggest a qualified shop do the testing and repairs. If you have any difficulty locating a reputable shop try contacting NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) for a listing of shops in your area. It is worth repairing. Good Luck Bill

Powers off by itself.

Power supply or sweep suppys have parts that are overheating and breaking down or cold solder connections. Call someone who knows this set like the local authorized magnavox/Phillips dealer/servicer. Good Luck
