Question about Philips 30PW9815 30" TV

Philips 30PW9815 30" TV No Video

A couple days ago when I turned on my set, I had audio but no video. Since this is out of warranty, and doesn't appear to be a cheap "replace the power supply" fix, is this worth repairing? Are there any potential inexpensive / affordable parts that could be broken inside or should I take this thing to the recycling center?

    Thanks for the ideas Arpi. I will check it out. One thought though is that I would think that replacing the CRT in this thing would fall under the category of "not worth it". Although this was an expensive TV in 2000/2001 when I got it, getting a similar TV is FAR less money now. That means that even with a few hundred invested in a fix that may or may not work or even last if it is fixed, I start to approach the inflection point.

    Either way - thanks for the help.

Hi there, the repair is possibble. One cause for the above mentioned error can be: no heating at CRT. Check R3466 (large signal panel). If defective replace following components: R3466 - 1R, L5466 - 10uH and R3467 - 1R. The other cause can be the defective CRT(cathode ray tube) ir there is a high voltage. If you need more info please advice. If you need the Service Manual please leave your email. Best regards, Arpi (your technical support)

    Hello again,

    the possibble cause for the above mentioned error (CRT-error) does not imply that you should replace the CRT.

    Best regards,

I have a lg plasma tv a few days ago it stop working no picture only audio it's a black screen the picture looked showy the second time i turned it on before turning of by itself

If you only have it since a couple of days, don't mess with it. Claim your warranty; get it changed, it is a vey Bad Buy. If they don't want to change it, at least get it repaired as soon as possible

Hello, Have a Magnovox RP2780A106 27'' TV Receiver that lost all video and audio a couple days ago. The remote only causes the set to click and then a few seconds later it clicks again. Trying to turn it...

These units had problems with the horizontal drive circuit. If it is clicking the main fuse is definately OK. These parts are pretty small surface mount parts and can be tricky to replace. A good shop should be able to help you out and it should not be real expensive. Thanks

Sounds like lamp is going out, if when you get lamp replaced, you can do it yourself, the purple blob is still visible, call Sony this may be one of the sets that have an extended warranty on the light engine.

lamp has probably gone out, but, if when you replace lamp purple blob is still on screen then light engine is bad, need to call Sony and see if is on extended warranty.

I have a Samsung 50" plasma, that has been blacking out over the last 6 months. A 9/2005 set. Now its practically unwatchable as it happens 3 times in an hour. Its not heat related - I have a high volume 9" fan activated on TV power on. Turning the set offf/on usually makes it come back for a now short while. Considering to go put it in the back of my pickup and park it in front of Best Buy and discourage Samsung purchases. This is the 2nd Samsung TV I've purchased (the other a 32" tube) I gave to my folks a couple years ago and its gone bad as well. Samsung product may look good, but their video engineers are not.
