Hi .

Replace all the electrilitic caps in the power supply.
To nconfirm this grab your hairdryer and blow hot air on the power supply board.
What this does is heats the electolytics and makes them come good.
This step is to confirm the problem.

    Hi there.

    The electrolitycs are in the module that powers the unit.

    follow power cord and wiring to the first module.

    hope this helps

I have a 50" Philips

Most likely the power supply capacitors are going bad.
Opening the TV and replacing any swollen caps may solve your issue.

The TV is forced in standby because an internal fault has been detected. 6 blinks slow and three fast blinks points at defective Ysus board or defective buffer. The power supply must also be tested. Till now the TV was starting because when you disconnect power you discharge internal components. Some of the components have the role of storing charge (the capacitors). If a capacitor is defective the TV may still work as other components will compensate the function of the faulty part. After a while more components will fail and the TV will not start anymore. To fix the problem the TV must be tested at component level. Testing will start from PSU voltages to YSus and buffer boards.
