    My trusty 32PW9534 has just died.

    The picture flashed, the screen went black and now the standby light flashes red whatever I do.

    There is a worrying smell of 'electronics' around the back of the set, albeit quite slight.

    Does anyone have any ideas what might have gone wrong, and is the TV destined for the scrap heap?

    The only thing you can do is call in an engineer to have a look and give you an estimate.
    Do not attempt having a go yourself...modern sets are beyond d-i-y fixers.

    Thanks JayCee.

    Has anyone else had similar issues with their set, if so how much did it cost to get it fixed?

    Why would anyone faff about with a Philips when you can buy a Sony or Panasonic for less than £400 ????

    Hmmm...dunno, maybe it's the 400 quid bit. :rolleyes:

    Looks like a plasma is going to be on the way anyway!

    Agree - for most uses. But I don't like what my Sony KD-32DX15OU 100Hz TV does to some video games.
