Customer Question

My Philips 40PFL3705D/F7 will not turn on, no picture, no sound. I have 24v at the inverter and 3.4v at CN1803. I can't find 12v at the fuse on the board that is top center of the set. At that point it appears to register .04v. ?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it.
I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.

- Are you talking about 12V at CN1803 on power board?

Thanks.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, I have 12v at the 3rd & 4th pins on CN1803
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, so on what board you're missing 12V?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Where I do not find 12v is at F100 on the board above the power supply. I believe that is call the T CON, but I could be wrong.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Also there is a clicking coming from the power supply. As long as the power cord in plugged in it clicks intermittently.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Thanks for the info, that 12V would not available when TV switches Off (either standby mode or protection activates), however, volts may appear for couple of seconds if you unplug TV power cord from wall for 5 minutes to reset, replug back in and press power button, volts may available for a while before the TV shuts Off.

Can you check the volts now?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have pulled the plug and will reply in a few after I plug back in and test it.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Sure, take your time please.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay, still nothing at F100. No change from unplugged to plugged in and turned on. I did get a really small voltage that did not change during set above steps.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, since you get output volts at power supply board that means power board is OK and it seems main controller chip internal issue which controls all the functions of TV such as power On-Off, video and audio signal processing etc. This chip is mounted on main board of TV (known as digital board as well) and main board replacement will help to resolve the issue. Please check with following board supplier to get replacement main board..

I have the part on order and it will be a week before it arrive. Can I get back to you once I install the new board?
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Sure, question is open for you, please take your time and reply back with the result.

Please make sure you get identical main board as different version board may not work.

Thanks.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Shahid, the new board is in. I now have power on, but I have a blank, blue screen and no sound so far. So, we made progress, but it ain't fixed.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no menu on the screen.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Hi again,

- Does TV stay On with blue screen?

- If so, press menu or volume button on TV, does any graphic appear on screen?

Thanks.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No menu, neither by using the remote nor the menu button on the set. Yes it stays on with a blue screen.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No graphics at all.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, did you get identical main board having same part number as of old main board?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Identical in all aspects.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, is the screen bright blue or dark bluish?

Have you checked LVDS cable runs from main board to t-con board for video data signal that goes inside circuitry of display panel (the screen)?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
dark bluish. I will have to remove the back this morning to check the connections. I will get back to you in a while.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, dark bluish means screen isn't getting video signal from t-con board and/or t-con board isn't getting video signal from main board so need to check LVDS cable (connecting cable) between t-con board and main board to make sure it is plugged securely and tight.

Please reply back with the result.

Thanks.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The cable is tight. I removed it and put it back in tightly and still nothing. The screen is a faint blue, the clicking has stopped and I can now turn the set off and on. Before I had nothing.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, there is another board called FRC board, LVDS cable plugs into FRC board and two flat cables from FRC board go into t-con board that would be located under metal shield. Please provide me picture of rear of TV if there is any confusion locating these boards so I'll mark them for you.

We need to check 12V DC at t-con board at chip fuse labeled as F100.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Thanks for the picture, so t-con board isn't getting proper working volts, please follow the red wires in harness near the fuse connector that will go into FRC board, do you get 12V at FRC board connector?

If no then please provide another picture of FRC board to see what is going on.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Thank you for picture. It means FRC board isn't working and causing the problem. Please replace FRC board in TV that will help to resolve the issue, same/ following supplier would have required FRC board on reasonable cost..

http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=40PFL3705D%2FF7

Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

No problem, I would be more than happy to see this TV up and running again :-)

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Well the new FRC board from shopJimmy is in the set. All connections are secure and it made absolutely no difference.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Sorry to hear that, do you get 12V at F100 with new FRC board?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No. There was no change after installing the FRC. I have requested a refund from justanswers.com. I cannot continue to put money into this TV board after board. Thank you, ***** ***** authorize my request.
