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,

How can I arrange the sound from DVD's to come from the Tv set rather than the MCD708 speakers

Run audio (and video) cables directly from the dvd player to the TV. Don't expect anything but stereo. BTW: this would be a good way to watch TV without the Philips turned on.

The BEST video from anything you watch should go to the TV (with analog audio); and the BEST audio fro manything you listen to should go to the Philips.

Picture Shrinks and Expands

If you have any of the following problems you may want to check the site for a repair kit. Most of the issue below are fairly common with the older Magnavox projection sets. 
Symptom: Screen shrinks and expands - may or may not correct itself after the TV warms up. After a few days, weeks, or months of having the shrinking/expanding problem you may loose all audio/video but the power light will remain lit!

Symptom: No Audio or Video but power light is on

Symptom: Audio works but no Video. Power light still work

Symptom: No Video. Audio is intermittent. Power light still works


Junk from magnavox.

Trying unppluging wait one minute and plug in again.


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.

No sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr

Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.

You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

Black screen, high pitched squeal

A set that has only a 1/2 inch bright line through the middle of the picture, from left to right, has a vertical output IC that is not working correctly. If the 1/2 inch line is in the middle but going up and down, then the horizontal yoke circuit has stopped working. These are problems which should be looked at by a qualified tech, but if the set was purchased 6 months ago then it should still be under the manufacturer's warranty.
