27" Philips TV "sometimes" turn on...

I have an old (7 years) CRT TV and sometimes it will not turn on. When I push the power button, it lights up red, but i'd say only 30% of the time does the TV actually "turn on". Other times, I never hear the "click" inside and there is no static on the screen, indicating it did not turn on. If I hit the TV hard, sometimes it fixes it for the time being.

I"m fairly handy, and just wanted to know if this may be an easy issue to fix, and if so, how/what part. Thanks.

Your thread was moved to the proper forum to maintain organization and to make information easier to find.

Post the model number and chassis number when you have a problem.

My first guess would be a bad solder connection, but without more info regarding which set you have, it is hard to make any good recommendations.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Bad solder connections are common on the vertical and horizontal outputs on these sets.
