You need to look at the power supply board for swollen capacitors. Some of the capacitors will have a black goo on them and that would be your problem and why it cannot start up. You can find the power supply board by removing the back cover, looking towards the top middle. Once you have located that, look for bad capacitors as stated above. If you are comfortable soldering, you can remove the bad ones and put in new ones. Look at digikey.com for the replacement capacitors. Simply put in the specs of the capacitors. Mine for example were 680 mfd at 50 v. I ordered 4 of those as my power supply had 4 capacitors with the black goo on them. After I put in the new parts, at a cost of $5, my tv stopped making the clicking sound and it turned right on. I tested the bad caps for giggle and they were not holding their power as they should, so they were confirmed bad. I hope this helps.

50PF9631D won't turn on... red light flashing/blinking 6 times


Your TV main board is damaged and you need a new one. You can order one on ebay and fix it yourself. Make sure you have the TV model/serial number on the back label of the TV to have the right part when ordering.

Where is lamp location in polaroid 32 in hd tv


I'm not sure which TV you have. The Philips 50' plasma does not have a backlight. The Polaroid 32 can have a incandescent or a florescent backlight. The backlight is accessed by removing the back of the TV and replacing the lamps. There can be 1-4 of these light for florescent and 1-*** number of lights if incandescent, depends on the design, model, features, price point.

Black spots blocking picture on plasma TV


Main board is likely the issue or worst case is a defective main screen called a display panel. Voltage checks will not usually help with this type of problem since it will likely have to be traced with a scope.

3-5 years is average life on this type of set and Philips is known for parts at that age becoming unavailable............
