58pus8545 no image on the screen
(Also dutch but wil reply in English)
I have the same TV with the same problem. My description;
Moving ambilight LEDs, which apparently respond correctly when we browse through the menu with the remote control. But no image on the screen. When starting up, you sometimes see some vague backlight on-off switches, but otherwise it seems as if the backlight of the display panel is not functioning. Has been playing since purchase and has now gotten progressively worse. In the past it has always been solved by switching it off and on again up to 10 times. Two times there was some purple image distortion. But usually just no/black image at all..
Based on this description;
the Philips assigned Repair Company “cerepair” told me that the parts likely needed to fix this (buffer board?) would likely not be available. I recieved an offer to a new similar TV, but it does not feel right.
What can i do instead of buying new Philips TVs that end up on the garbage pile within 3 years?
I want something that is repairable and supports a circular economy.
