    I have a question about my TV. I have had a Phillips tv for over 5 yrs. The size is a 42 inch, maybe larger. The tv will not come on even if we hold the power switch for a while. The light blinks in increments of 5 seconds then stops. What is the problem?

    Since you didn't specify model number:

    Problem: No power or indicator light.

    Possible cause and solution:
    The TV is not connected to the power.
    Press POWER at the side of the TV or on the remote control.
    Ensure that the AC power cord is connected tightly to the TV power connector and to the power socket outlet.
    Remove the AC power cord from the power socket outlet, wait 60 seconds and reconnect the AC power cord.
    Connect the TV to a different power socket outlet.

    Failing that you will most likely need a repair. Contact Philips to confirm.

    Some TVs blink a diagnostic code, or have a service menu that can be activated with the remote. Can you provide the TV model number?
