Few days ago, i just experienced death of my Philips 32PFL403S/97 LCD TV. Without any sign, the screen sudden turned from color to white, with the sound still working.
Bought the LCD since year 2008 3rd quarter with RM 1699, moderate use, average 3-4 hours per day.
Tried to find solution online,
i) Yahoo! Answers
Those solution above doesn’t seems easy for DIY, so i went to 2 local electronics shops, but none of them willing to try fixing it. According to them, replacement parts availability of the brand is bad, especially for old model. Advised me bring it to dealer shop or service centre.
To save time, i just bought a new one instead. A Sharp LC32L400M- bk.
Compare to previous Philips, Sharp brighten up dark area of image to make it more visible. It also comes with backlight control and auto brightness control. Not bad for a RM 1k product.
