Getta2k1June 1, 2005

The problem started a few days ago. I would turn the tv on, the screen would flicker for a few secs and then image would take a while to fill the screen. Then yesterday, turned the t.v on got no picutre just heard a few clicking noises then the green power led would just turn off. I turned the tv on then off a few tims then eventually the piture would come on. Now today, turned the tv on get no picture, no sounds of anything....any suggestions...tv is not even 2 years old...HELP!!!

Your symptoms sound alot like what I experienced before my set died. At least you got almost two years out of it. See my post titled Phillips TV 27pt543s37a ch#L01.1u AC-7638 and test the components mentioned. Once I find sources for the bad parts, I'll post my results.

This tv is only a year and a half old. When I turn it on the picture comes on for a few seconds then the tv makes a couple of clicking noises and the screen goes black. The power light stays green and if you change the channel you will get a picture for a few seconds. you only get sound when you have the picure. I hope you could help me.

Well I took the big leap and had it repaired at a local Phillips repair shop. The part itself was about $40 and labor of course was the most at about 120...ill get the work order and let you know what part..

There appears to be several threads regarding this same problem of needing several attempts to power up unit so that it stays on (maybe someone can use this information to come up with a final solution):

A big thank you to pee_wee. We just fixes 2, yes 2, tvs with his solution. My tvs had horizontal lines and shut off after a few seconds. My husband went to Radio Shack and bought the part, 5 resistors in a package for 99 cents, and fixed both of the tvs. We still have 3 resistors left. Thank you soo much
