  1. I have a one year old Phillips 30PF9975 TV which simple switched itself off. My horror was that the recommended rapair shop wanted £400.00 just to assess the problem. I confirm £400.00! Parts and labour would be extra! The shop is in RIPON, North Yorkshire, Tel 0870-240-6494 if you want to avoid it. My new, non phillips tele arrives tomorrow.

  2. I have a 29 inch Phillip Television, it was color and now I turn it on and its black and white but still works good. Did the color tube blow and do how much would it be to get it repaired? Thanks!

  3. i have a phillips 27RF50 S325 the red power light comes on but the T.V. does nothing. The screen doesn't do anything the, no sound just the power light.

  4. Same here on my big screen.Does anyone have the solution and if so,can it be fixed myself.Since I just don't trust repair men.

  5. I have a Phillips 29'” TV that played fine till I moved in September. Now it will not power up. The red light comes on and it clicks then nothing. I am a single female senior citizen of 70. I cannot take it to a repairman, nor can I afford to have one come to my house. It would almost be cheaper to buy another one that I cannot afford. Could it be a tube? If so I could probably fix it myself. Please give me some advice.Thanks, Edna Beard

  6. I have a two year old phillips. you have to push to on button 8 to 10 times for it to stay on. Can it be fixed by me?

  7. I have a 27″ Phillips tv that is 3 yrs. old and for about a month i had to push my power several times to get the tv to stay on. Once the tv did stay on, the right side of the screen would have a black bar for about 5 minutes. Then one day I turned it off, when I tried to turn it back on it just made a “clicking” sound and now when you leave it plugged in it make a high pitched squeaking sound. Kinda mad can anyone help me out?

  10. I have the EXACT problems that Jordan had… I ended up buying a HDTV but wanted to put this Phillips 27 inch in my bedroom. The last time I turned it on, I had to do it about a hundred times before the black bar was gone and the picture stopped wobbling… Should I try and fix tihis or just spend a couple hundo on a new flat screen?

  11. I have had our TV for about 2 years, it was a demo from rent-a-center. Anyway, about 2 months ago, it started clicking on and I had to turn it on about 15 times, before the black bar would dissapear and the TV would stay on. Now, it doesnt come on at all, but there is a piercing sound coming from the back of it, while plugged up. Can it be repaired, without the cost of an expensive repairman? Does it need a picture tube? Can I repair it myself? Please help!!!!!!!Stone Wolf
