Philips 42PF9956/37 clicking relays

You posted the suggestion of replacing the capacitors 2540 (100uF@25v) and 2508 (4.7uF@50v) to fix the power problem. In my board, both 2540 and 2508 don't look like capacitors. They are very small and have P3 100 16v on top. They are equal. I also searched all the board but I couldn't find any capacitors at that values. Would you have another suggestion?

SOURCE: Philips PLASMA TV 42PF9956/37 42" power board 3104 313 60173 relays clicking TV does not turn on

The capacitors for 2533,2540,2541,and 2508 should be replaced. They are all 100uf 16v surface capacitors. Those capacitors are sold on amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Rubycon-Electrolytic-Capacitor-IMPEDANCE-Continuous/dp/B0015A8U9M/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&m=A6Q8GCHJGURD6&s=industrial&qid=1225140147&sr=1-2

Can i repair a model 090-01280-13


Sure. Turn off TV remove plug and push and hold power button for 10 seconds. Pull power supply and replace every capacitor (barrel looking things) on the board with an equivalent replacement. YOu can go higher in voltage but not farads, ie. 4.7uf 25V can be replaced with a 4.7uf 50V. Usually they wont cost more than $15 total. Any capacitor that has a bulged top (they should be completely flat) is a sign that it has gone bad. I would replace all before seeking professional service which is probably 50% of the value of the TV. Worth a shot.

Failed Repair Job. A friend of mine called a loocal repair shop to fix their LG50PC3D 9 x 10V 3300uf 105c Capacitors on the Power Board were swollen 1 x 50v 680uf 105c Capacitor on the Power board was...


replacing the 10V caps with 25V caps is perfectly fine. In fact, if it was manufactured like that, those caps may not have blown.
Replacing a 680uF with a 1000uF could be problematic depending on it's function.
680uF is pretty specific when 500uF and 1000uF are much more common and therefore cheaper - one would think that the engineers would have tried using those in the design rather than a 680uF - makes me think the value of the cap is important to the frequency of the circuit it's in.
Other concerns might be whether he got any of them in backwards or not.
That's a rookie mistake, but still an easy enough one to make (for a rookie).
Also, with that many swollen caps, I wonder if there were any that leaked out the bottom before swelling at the top (IE - if some caps were missed in the replacement procedure)
Also, with that large a number of caps gone, other components may have been compromised or blown.
I'd be testing the transistors around those caps (most likely punched through rather than open), looking for fusible links (surface mount fuses, 0 OHM resistors) that may have opened up etc.
The initial attack on the problem was basically correct, and in many cases probably would have fixed it (if say the 680uF cap was functioning as a ripple filter).
But when that didn't fix it, a deeper analysis should have been done to complete the repair (including locating a 680uF cap).

Can i replace a 300uf25v capasitor with a 50v.47uf capasitor in my polaroid tv


No they are not the same, you can go up on the voltage but not down, but you need to be very close or dead on the uf.

My dell w3000 tv wont power on


There are likely bad capacitors on the power board. You will need to replace 4 capacitors, labeled c101, c304, c305 and c404. I used 3 50v 33uf and 1 50v 47uf capacitors. The originals are 35v 33uf and 35v 47uf. Replacing these should fix most power board issues.

42" philips plasma, black screen and flashing red light


This fix was posted on similar problem, worthy of repeating: Replaced 3300mf 10V capacitors at PS. Both had bulged slightly. Upsized to 25V as the previous solution poster had suggested 16V but I could not locate 16V so used 25V and TV is back to normal!

The screen stays white when the TV is turned off.


Power supply has capacitors vented/swollen that needs replacing. Seen several posting asking how to fix. I replaced (2) 220uf 25v and (2) 1000uf 25v caps and the unit works fine now.

Tv wil not turn on just keeps making a clicking noise


ur relay keep try hard to turn tv on that u hear clicking noise.
+5VDC is leaking! open back cover,check power supply board.
1000uF or 2200uF capacitor is popped open or leaky.replace with known top quality capacitor.do it ur self repair will save u $200.

50 inch plasma blank screen


I bought my Philips Magnavox 50" plasma in June of 2007. In february of 2009, I noticed increasingly longer delays in the video coming on after turning on the power and then the audio began to delay coming on. After a few weeks of this problem the audio and video then stopped coming on at all. However, there was power going to the unit because the green power light was working. I noticed over 50 other consumers on this website had the same problem. WITH THE HELP OF OTHERS ON THIS WEBSITE, I HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM FOR $40. YES, FOR LESS THAN $100.00 I HAVE A WORKING HDTV AGAIN, BUT WITH NO THANKS TO PHILIPS - MAGNAVOX. THEY WERE USELESS. 

HERE IS THE FIX:

1. Unplug your power supply cord.
2. Remove back panel on your HD.
3. Look for capacitors that have a bubbled or slightly raised and rounded top. This indicates the capacitors have overheated or leaked and need to be replaced. The normal look is a flat surface with no raised features at all. (I had two bad capacitors that were side-by-side and identical: 3300uf 10v. Also, they should be located on the power supply board. My power supply board is in the middle of my 50" plasma.) 
4. Go to an electronics repair store or Radio Shack and see if they carry your capacitor type and size and replace them yourself if you are comfortable with removing the capacitors and soldering new ones to the power supply board. The capacitors will cost you $2.00 each or less. 
5. I was not comfortable replacing the capacitors myself so I removed the power supply board by removing the screws and unplugging several wire connections. This was not difficult at all. I then brought the power supply board to a local electronics shop that did repairs on HDTVs and simply asked them to remove the bad capacitors and solder two new capacitors onto the power supply board. They did it for $40, which included cost for the 2 new capacitors, while I waited and it only took about 10 minutes.
6. I replaced the power supply board and back panel of TV and it worked!!!

Some people on this sight suggested replacing the capacitors with some that have higher temperature ratings. Based on that advice, I wanted to replace my two that were bad (3300uf 10v) with two rated at 4700uf 35v, but my electronics guy suggested against it. Instead, I replaced mine with 3300uf 50v, with the only difference from the original parts being the higher voltage (50v instead of 10v). I figure if the problem occurs again, I now know I can get it fixed for less than $50.00. Philips - Magnavox should be ashamed for such poor customer service and not telling people about this simple fix. When I called their customer service support number I was simply directed to a repair place --over two hours away!!!

Power issue


The Philips Plasma TV have a problem with electrolytic capacitors going bad. I believe you heated some capacitors and your problem may return. If so, try replacing 2540 (100ufd@25v)
and 2508 (4.7ufd@50V).
