Question about Philips 42FD9932 42 in. Plasma Television
We have a 42 inch plasma that was stored for over a year laying down (face up). We plugged it in today to test it and the green light doesn't come on (just the red). Any ideas as to what is wrong and if it is fixable?
You can only lay plasma teles down for about half a n hour at the most i was told when i bought one , because of the gases in the tele it must be stored upright or it knacks . sounds dead to me.

There is sometimes a long delay in power up after storage. Philips usualy state that 30 seconds from switch on is normal. Switch it on and let it 'do its own thing' for a minute and hopfully all should be well.

Storing it for a year should not have caused any problems. If the red standby light comes on but the unit won't power up you could have any of a million problems. A wire could have come out of a socket, there could be a short in the unit or the power supply may not be making all the necessary voltages. If you know TV safety and can use tools, unplug the unit. You can lay it flat on a cushioned surface, remove the back and check for any wires unplugged from their sockets. Check all fuses to make sure none are blown. These units typically have quite a few scattered on every board. Some will not be traditional glass fuses. Look for any burned components or boards. If you find no problems there is not much more you can do and you will need a repair shop to look at it. Certainly it should be worth fixing. If you do not know TV safety do not attempt any repairs and seek the help of a repair facility. Good luck.
