Question about Philips E-Box FTR9965 DTV Receiver
My Philips plasma 42FD9954 will not turn on (very similar problem reported by others). DOes any one know if replacing Caps 2663, 2664 and 2662 will resolve the issue?
SOURCE: any ideas?
1) Replace C2663 by 2020 021 91677 (100uF/50V, 105°C).
2) Place Schottky diode 9336 247 60133 on pin 7 (+) and 8 (-) of IC7650,
to avoid negative pulses, resulting in this bad startup behaviour.

Not a fix, but it got my tv on.
I removed the back and tried the power switch.
I located the relay that was clicking.
I have two blue relays in the middle of my power board.
I placed a hair dryer over the relay for a few minutes.
After four tries of the power switch and it stays on!!!!!
Heat keeps the relay from just clicking off.
I don't know why.
This will at least get the tv on though.

The problem is in your cable connection on the back of your monitor or Box. I had the same problem and solved it by reattaching the VGA cable that was loose.

The problem is in the standby power supply. the standby power supply generates the 9 volts and the 5 volts requird by the tv. If you measure the 9 volts source, with only the red light on, the correct voltage is 9 volts. However if the 9 volt measures 6.5 to 7 volts it is too low and the startup relays cannot operate. My set is a model 42FR9954/17S. In this set if capicator, 2603, is heated the voltage climbs to 9 volts and the relays work. If cold air is applied to the capicator the relays fail to operate. Replace capacitor 2503 and the problen is fixed. This capicator is: 47 Ufd, rated @ 450 volts, and is 20%.
