    I seem to have an odd problem with my television.

    Its a philips 28 inch widscreen. I had the tv upstairs for a while, i brought it back down, all be it a bit heavy handed. When i got the tv plugged in, it worked. It works fine for a while. Then the remote wont work followed by the thing switching off, the power light remains on. If i switch it off and leave it for an hour or two it will work for a short time again (anywhere from 10mins to 1 hour)

    another factor was that it was in a dusty enviroment, i did take the back off but didnt see anything obvious and gave it a quick blow out. but to no avail.

    Anybody have any ideas or seen somthing similar?

    Thanks

    It doesn't really as there are dozens of Philips 28in widescreen sets all using different chassis.
    If you see "A10E" printed anywhere on the rear label the fault is likely to be a duff "Painter" IC and the set is probably not worth repairing.
    Do a search of this forum using "Painter" as the search term.
