Question about Philips 50PF9956 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
MY PHILIPS FLAT SCREEN TV MODEL # 50PF9956 WILL NOT COME ON. IT USED TO TURN ON AFTER SEVERAL TRIES. THE RED LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON ANYMORE AND IT MAKES A CLICKING SOUND.
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.
