    Our ageing Philips 32" CRT TV has gone belly-up tonight.

    It appears to be in stand-by mode (red light lit up on front panel).

    When we press a programme key to wake up the TV and display a channel (say BBC-1), the light turns green for a few seconds. Normally at this point the TV picture and sound would appear. Now, instead, the stand-by light returns, but flashes about twice a second.

    Clearly an error condition - but what?

    I have looked through the manual without success, there doesn't appear to be a trouble-shooting section :(

    Can anyone help ? What does the error mean? Is it possible to "hard reset" the TV ? Is it buggered ??

    Thanks in advance.....

    Hi, I had basically the same problem with my Philips 32" Cool Blue Designer TV and today it was inspected and requires a new Colour Tube at £492. It's 3 1/2 years old and cost £1,500 pretty miffed to say the least, to my amazement the present tube in the tv is produced by Panasonic ? Anyway obviously this is a worst case scenario and you could have a dry solider joint, I got two repair quotes from recommended repairers and they both confirmed the same, I'd say do likewise most reputable repairers offer a free repair inspection.

    Good luck. :smashin:

    I got my 32 inch 6517 Phillips deliverd yesterday and its a lovely picture although i did notcice the flashing during the Tescos advert

    watched atatck of the clones on it and thought the colours very good and did not notice anything else untoward

    I suppose im not pedantic enough(or should that be a pedant) for spotting anything else :)

    Ive read enough on here to know most 32 inch plus tvs have some faults but there still a better picture than plasma or lcd's

    I think that the flashing of white areas is the worst you'll see from this tv.

    You can stop it by turning down the contrast, which I have on mine, which is a similar spec.

    Excellent pic otherwise, detailed, colourful and sharp. The sound aint bad either.

    :)
