Question about Philips 50PF9956 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Screen is black even with power on.

I can turn power on (blue light) but the screen stays black. It is getting a signal from the cable box because you can hear the channel. Sounds like a bad picture tube. I bought the TV in early 2005 (now out of warrenty).

Power comes on but screen stays black


The backlight inverter board may be bad, or worst case will be bad lamp. You should look to see if the cable comes off the inverter board first. You may learn maore here:

Dell E171FP Monitor goes black after 2 secs


Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

Monitor signal cable troubleshooting


hi, there is some loose contact in the connection. Take out the cable end from the VGA socket and check the pins inside the socket for any bend inside the socket. Reconnect it, tight the connector with the socket bolts. If not solved, try for any loose solder or wire breake.
Thank you
