Philips 17PF9936/37 17'' Flat HDTV slow to start working

I have a Philips 17'' HDTV flat panel, modelĀ 17PF9936/37. When I power it on, the power light comes on, the sound works fine but the screen doesn't display anything for about 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, the screen kicks on and everything is ok. If I work it of and right back on again, it starts up fine. Any ideas?

    No video, I get sound, and a bit of blue flashing. The power light starts out green, then blinks red after a couple of minutes. The power supply measures at +12.3 volts ok. I have tried connecting the video into all ports but no change. Any ideas? Thanks.

You might have some swollen capacitors on your power supply board. They will be easy to spot out, because they will not have flat tops like the rest of the capacitors. Replace them with the same rating capacitor. You will need a soldering iron, solder and solder wick for this repair. If you are not comfortable with electronics I would recommend taking it to a authorized service provider.

I have a Philips 50" Flat HDTV model 50PF9431D/37. Problem with screen turning on. I get sound. I get 9 quick flashes in red. Then after unplugging and plugging back in several times. It then blinks...

I have the exact same problem! I have it hooked up to a power strip now to unplug it by flicking of the power strip and waiting for the red light to go out then I turn it back on while Channeling up 10 X's and then down and up until it comes on. I listen to the sound of the switch which it comes on. I turn it off if it is faint and then back on and channel up. Crazy process but it's been working. It takes about 10 minutes everytime to get the TV on until I get a tech to come out and look at it. The capacitor keeps a charge which is why the light is flashing with a code for 60 seconds./JJ
