hi First, remember the old HDMI reset tech tip. Unplug all HDMI cables (one end will do.) Then remove power from all things in play. No, not just turned off but remove the AC. Wait 5 to 10 minutes, hookup re -test thanks

The main digital board should be suspected. Check this for more details. There are so many reasons for this fault. The flashing of LED at its front panel denotes this. Count the number of flashes. You can get more details form the site linked above.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

No--this is called a PDP or plasma display panel and no two (even same brand) can be interchanged.

The cost of a Panel exceeds the cost of a new set--broken screen=fatal issue.

I had this problem and had to get a new digital board installed - costs c€150-200 euro.

Usually when something like this happens, with any tv set. it is the tv stopping its self from turning on to prevent more damage being done to it internally. You are more then likely to need a repair on this. Check out prices of local repairers in your area and see what sort of quotes you can get. but to be honest if it is a problem with the screen and not the PSU then it could get pricey
Hope that help

This is a plasma screen T.V. and doesn't use a lamp. You are probably correct in thinking it's the T-Con board. This board is sometimes a pain to get it. When you get to the board, look up the board number on the side on e-bay or other internet resources for the lowest price if you're comfortable changing it yourself.

Check power board . Replace any capacitors that have domed tops.

Philips... | Answered on Jun 08, 2011


Hallo! You might have a power trouble. Open the rear cover and take a look over the power board- that's the board where goes the alimentation cord. Look if there are not inflated the electrolytic capacitors, if yes, you must change them with the same type. Be careful with the polarity of the capacitors- you must solder them the same way as the old ones were.

Here's the main support page for your unit in case you need the User manual or other documentation:

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=en&scy=us&ctn=42PF7321D/37

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read the USER MANUAL - PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there.

Assuming the warranty is expired, you should have no problem disassembling the unit enough to access the speakers with just a phillips screwdriver.

Normally you just lay the unit screen side down on a soft flat surface like a bed. Just make sure nothing will gouge or scratch the screen.

Then just remove screws for the stand and pull it off (see page 2 of the Online Owners Manual).

After that you can remove all the screws from the back panel and remove the plastic enclosure.

You should be able to access the speakers from there.
Here is a link to some spares from EBay:

http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=Phillips+tv+speakers&_sacat=0&_odkw=Phillips+speakers&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

I didn't actually see any speakers for your exact model, but the online selection changes constantly so you may just have to get lucky and spot one that will fit.

The other option is to just go into your MENU and turn the speakers off. Then just use the rear outputs to feed into a home stereo / home theatre system for your audio.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

If this was at all helpful please click on the 4 Thumbs Up helpfulness rating icon you see on this page.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Joe.
