Philips plasma error codes

After reading through quite a few posts, I believe you are the person to ask, hope that is ok.
My plasma is not powering up, just giving the flashing lights on PS and front LED. Both are flashing twice, delay of about 5 seconds and repeating the flashing twice and so on.
Can you explain what the error code is for me please, as I can't seem to find any reference material listing the error codes, and have been informed the manual will take nearly 2 weeks to arrive. 
Thanks in advance,
Robert Gray

I have a Philips BPU2.3U, 50" plasma. It turns on for about 30 seconds and then goes into protection mode, flashing the 53 error code. The manual says Viper, PNX8550 is at fault. Is this something...

Error 53.

This error will indicate that the VIPER has started to function (by reading his boot script, if this would have failed, error 5 would blink) but initialization was never completed because of hardware peripheral problems (NAND flash, ...) or software initialization problems.

Possible cause could be that there is no valid software loaded

Try to upgrade to the latest main software version

Your service manual can be found at the link below:

Look at section 5.9 for instructions on upgrading your software and this should fix your problem.

I have a F & P topload Intuitive Wasing Machine. It has come up with error code 37 which I believe is a blocked pump. do you know how to fix this or do I need to call a service person?

Hi just read your posting.Now if the machine is full of water drain some by hand, enough to lean the machine back so you can look underneath.To the front right you should see a red or black fan.This is your pump.Turn the fan a few times to loosen it.The fan should turn freely.Put the machine back on its feet and select a spin cycle and push start.Hopefully the machine will drain and then spin.Please reply on how you got on or if you have the newer style of pump.Looking forward to your reply.

There is a problem on my computer.It says "Insufficient system resources does not exist" how do you resolve that?

there isn't such an error . Please look again . There are several over errors with "Insufficient system resources" . you must have an error number (max 4 digits). you may check on microsoft page with that error code you didn't post . Other time please be more specific and try to write all your problem on the paper . Read it and if you consider that a third person fully understand your problem only reading that, post it. ok? :)

42PFL5332D/37 does not turn on red light flashes 6 times.

Don't have a "solution" yet, but found this table that decodes the blinks:

Error Code Table

0 = No error
1 = X-ray protection, E/W protection, and/or Vertical protection active
2 = High beam current protection active
3 = Reserved
4 = +5V protection active
5 = Signal Processor (IC 7150) register corrupted
6 = Signal Processor (IC 7150) error
7 = Total failure
8 = Internal RAM error (Microprocessor IC 7000)
10 = NV memory (IC7088) addressing error
11 = NV memory (IC7088) size error
12 = Histogram (YUV) (IC 7770) error
14 = Sound processor I²C error (TDA9855)
16 = Main Tuner I²C error (IC 1125)
17 = PIP Processor I²C error (IC 7350)
18 = PIP Tuner I²C error (IC 1127)

I, too, have the 6 blinks of a red light. I found another person online that suggested that perhaps the power cord was "defective" as it's a common issue. I replaced the power cord with one from an old computer (they're the same cord) and it seems to be OK now. That's all I can offer you at this time.

Picture Problems On 50 Inch Philips Plasma

You plasma still under manufacturers warranty. Most electronic devices have one year warranty.
The failure in your TV can only be corrected by repairing it.
I would suggest to call philips and ask them to find you an authorized repair center near you to get your TV fix under their warranty.
