Owners of Philips LCD televisions have reported various problems with them. Many have to do with sound: no sound, odd clicks, static or squealing noises. Since any problems reported after the warranty deadline become the responsibility of the television owner, if you own a Philips LCD TV with sound problems, it is a good idea to call the company as soon as you become aware of them.
Some Philips LCD TV owners have reported that the sound on the TV goes out unexpectedly, especially when the TV is first turned on. Many add that the sound came back gradually after changing channels or restarting the TV. Some also describe the menu display popping up when the sound goes out.
Owners of a Philips LCD TV sometimes complain that its sound suddenly changes from normal volume to a loud blast of incoherent static.
Many owners of the Philips LCD TV have described strange clicking noises coming from their televisions. The clicking noise has been reported when the TV is struggling to power up and sometimes after the picture or the power have abruptly failed.
Loss of Power
Some owners of the Philips LCD TV have reported that the TV abruptly turns itself off, sometimes accompanied by a clicking noise, a puff of smoke or even sparks. While some say that the TV works intermittently afterward, others report that their TV never worked again.
