Phillips 25' turns off

oliver510January 10, 2009

I have a 25" Phillips Model 25PS40 S121 Chassis 256M800 7603 that recently turns off a few seconds after it's turned on. I've read forums from this site that it can be the resister that needs to be replaced. Please let me know where the resistor is located and what type I need to replace it with. Thank you in advance.

I had one that did that. Unplugging the power from the wall overnight would remedy the situation for a few days, sometimes several weeks.

OK I am assuming that your TV has lost its color-started shutting off-- gotten color bars on the screen etc. for some reason there is not enough ventilation in the TV causing an over heating problem , here is what to do , if you have the back off get rid of the metal shield that covers the circuit board , then in my case i cut a hole in the back panel with a hole saw and mounted a computer fan powered by a 12 v power supply to the cover ,this keeps the guts nice and cool and cures the problem ,use an outlet block with a switch in it to turn the TV +fan off and on this repair only costs about 20 bucks and is a lot less expensive than a repair man who cant fix it, mine would shut off after 20 min and you would have to unplug it to make it come back on again , now it runs all day no problem
