    32PFL4505D vertical lines / no pix

    32PFL4505D vertical lines and no picture.
    Is this something I can fix due to a BAD Connection/s or is it a BAD LCD?
    Maybe a PCB chip error - I can replace the chips if I knew which ones were at fault.
    I have 52 years of electronic experience and board repair.

    Hi Clydeww,

    Even with your experience I need to advise you to contact an authorised service centre for advice regarding repair of your TV.

    Reason being is that we do not recommend self-repair of the TVs for warranty, and health and safety reasons.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Thanks Ina,

    But this is NOT under warranty.

    And with 50 years experience I am FAR from having any Safety and Health reasons as an issue.

    I am a TECHNICIAN, so I don't Want or Need an Authorized Service Centre!

    I am just NOT familiar with this Brand and Model and was looking to save time thinking this is probably a common problem with this model.

    If the screen replacement is the ONLY way to repair it, then it is NOT worth the high screen cost.

    But if the Main Board or Graphics Board will fix it, then it might be worth a repair.

    Thanks Again
    Ina

    Fair enough, but I still need to advise fully. I'm sure you can appreciate the rammifications and my reasoning behind doing so.

    This is the main reason for me advising to contact an authorised service centre, as they will be the most qualified in advising if a repair will be feasable.

    There may be users on this forum who would know something about the specific issue you are having, but the majority of the users are not technical repair professionals, unlike yourself.

    It is also for their benefit that I informed about the risks of self-repair.

    Surely calling up a repair centre and asking for their advise cannot be a complete waste of time, as they would have official Philips issue symptoms on file.

    I do hope you find out what the issue is and find a suitable solution.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    There might be a faulty part somewhere on the PCB. Your challenge will be to find it. Nowadays things parts are not replaced but whole PCB boards. So check with your local authorised dealer what is faulty and see whether these PCB boards are still available. Ger a quote and then decide for yourself. Good luck.
