I have a Phillips HDTV that was purchased in 2005. I don't recall the model number but it is 32" 4x3 with atsc tuner and hdmi input. It has been sitting in the basement unused for about 6 months. I plugged it in the other day and it will not turn on. I hear a clicking for a few minutes when I plug it in and then nothing. I opened it up and blew the dust off of the circuit boards but this has not helped. Any suggestions on what might be the problem.

It could be a lot of things.
First, if the Tv is clicking, your fuse is okay and the standby power supply is okay. Any lights flashing? I have repaired some of these philips for power supply regulator. It will click on but on the standby works and not the secondary voltages.
It could also be horizontal or vertical failure or anything really. Was there any humidity? See some water on the circuit?
If you're not a tech, send it to a shop. My shop has free estimates, so maybe a shop near you can tell you your problem and at what cost. Should not be over 125$ for repair.

No moisture, but lots of saw dust and concrete dust from basement construction. The standby light does not come on. I hear the clicking when the TV is plugged in. Not sure it is worth $125 to repair since I saw the widescreen version of this TV on Craig's list for $50.

Addendum: The Philips TV I saw for $50 on Craig's list was not widescreen or HD. It was hard to tell from the picture but the seller was honest about it.

Well then count your blessing that circumstances gave u permission to upgrade. 4:3 in an era of 16:9 materials? This thing is obsolete. Hope u find sumbody to cart it away.

Solution: FREE. Explanation: I will have to charge$ you.

Having seen how fantastic the image quality from some of those Phillips HDCRTs was I wouldn't dismiss it so quickly I've never seen another television handle standard definition content better than one of those models.

Overscan isn't such an issue when running 16:9 on a 4:3 television too.

I trashed it this morning . I replaced it with an LCD last year. I was using it for the kids Wii. I looked on Craig's list and there are other HD CRT's available for under $125. I may pick up one this weekend if I can get someone to help me load and unload the heavy beast.

CRTs contain toxic material and shouldn't go into a general landfill. Specialist disposal is required.

I called the garbage company and they arranged for special pickup.
