SOURCE: won't power, light goes green 5-10 seconds later red flashing light

Solution Found.

I had the same problem with my 42FD5994. It was working fine, then one day I turned the TV on and the front light turned green for about 5 - 10 seconds and then the TV switched to protection mode (front green light is now red and flashing constantly). I did some research and found out the the power board is faulty. I ordered a DIY fix it kit on Ebay for around $55 (includes shipping). The kit contains 5 high temp capacitors and a new IC chip. It also comes with a good detailed photo of the circuit board the components that needed replacing.

I also spent $70 at Radio Shack for some soldering gear and went to work. It took me 3 hours to replace the 6 components. The IC chip was a pain to remove, but one that was out the rest went pretty smooth. I had to remove two extra blue capacitors in front of the IC chip to desolder some of the leads.

After I cleaned the board with Isopropal alcohol (99% pure) to remove the excess flux, I inspected the solder joints to make sure I didn't solder some runs together. All looked good.

Next I put the TV back together and hooked everything back up. I powered on the TV and the same problem as before. The TV went into protection mode. But this time I heard the speakers pop and the screen buzzed. So I pushed in the power button to reset the TV. Next, I turned the TV back on, but this time when the light was green, I quickly pushed the power button again to power off the TV. I tried the TV one last time. I powered the TV back on, and with the remote I turned the TV on. Viola! It worked. The TV powers on great, and works like a champ. I am guessing that the first time I tried to turn the TV on, the new components needed a minute to energize. I also started the TV cold, I should have plugged it in for a few minutes before I tried turning it on.

So, I was successful fixing my 42FD5594 with the DIY kit on Ebay. I ordered it from California. The company was great, and Everything arrived well protected. I figured if this didn't work, it was time to get a new TV anyway. I can save the $2000 for another day.

SOURCE: Tv cuts off and green light flashes

If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=493-1754-ND. Total cost was $7 with S/H.

Philips lists 3 models of your TV:
1) 50PFP5332D/37
2) 50PFP5332D/37B
3) 50PFP5332D/37E

User Manual for your TV (actually for the 50PFP5332D/37E):
http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/50pfp5332d_37e/50pfp5332d_37e_dfu_aen.pdf
The user manual doesn't document the logic board blink codes for errors.

What this tells me is that the TV went thru two revisions before reaching version E.
in case it helps: Philips Customer Support: 1-888-PHILIPS.
If they can't help otherwise, they can at least tell you if your set is eligible for warranty service.

After you remove the back cover inspect the power supply board for swollen or bulging capacitors. Pull and check any capacitors that you suspect to be swollen. Next, look for a sticker in the upper right hand side of the TV set. Use the values you find on the sticker to calibrate the voltages on the power supply board.

Plasma won't stay on red light flashes and shuts unit off


The fans are visible in the back and they can be cleaned with compressed air with no moisture built up in the hose line,We don't want to spray water in the fans.Is the only thing you can try and the unit's back does not have to be removed.If this does not solve your problem you might need the help of a servicer.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
