    Same problem red light flashes 7 times with no picture.

  • Anonymous Nov 25, 2008

    Tv techs from authorized Philips service do not know what the problme with TV is? They suggest me to, if I want to go with repairs, to replace Y sus upper and lower board, power supply and logic board!!!
    They could have simply said to replace whole unit, buy another TV.
    Philips suCKs, and from now on I stay away from this brand name, for sure.
    I do not understand how come law did not force them to take care of these lemon TV's. Too many customers have filled compliance.

7 blink error on that model is 8.6 volt error and generally caused by y main board. disconnect y main from power supply and if tv does not shut down and vs voltage comes up (test point on power supply) replace y main and both y upper and lower buffer boards as replacing one without other two could cause additional failures

SOURCE: Philips 42" Flat Screen Plasma - blinking red light 7 times - HELP please!

I had the same issue with 2 of these sets. It ended up being 2 capacitors were bad on the power supply. They are located towards the bottom of the board, you can visually see they were buldging and leaking slightly. I replaced them with 2 I salvaged out of an old computer (of same values) and the tv works as it did before.

I did the same, replaced two bulging capacitors...cost me 2.00 for the capacitors and $20 for the desoldering/soldering tools. First time doing anything close to this with any electronics...tv works great now.

Since Philips service manuals do not list a chart for the LED blinking diagnostics, the first thing to look for is faulty electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board, one of the most common causes of failure in plasma tvs. The capacitors are cylindrical objects with an x or k mark at the top. See if you can find any of them on the power supply that are inflated(bulged) at the top and/or cracked. Please let me know what are your observations sot that we can proceed accordingly.

Panasonic TC-P55UT50 plasma went black. power light blinks 7 times, pauses blinks 7 times. Is this a power board? or Y-Sustain?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Flashing RED lights in Panasonic TVs means a fatal error code. Unplug the TV, wait 1 minute and replug. If the LED still flashes it needs professional service.
