You have a Ysus problem. Sounds like a cold solder joint or loss connections on ysus main board.

SOURCE: Philips Plasma NO LIFE

I had the same problem (with 42FD9954/17S) that when turned on the unit, the green LED turned off and came back to red again some time later. I kept turning it on and once it went to a clicking relay sound and blinking green LED with it. It did that for a while and stayed turned on. I noticed that it is temperature sensitive. Colder the room is more often does it. Used a hair dryer and blown hot air into the unit at the left bottom grills. It helped and started to tun on quicker. Later it has deteriorated so bad that I took it a part and after several ice spraying test showed that on the middle big board (power board) there was an electrolyte condenser went bad. It is the one one which is at the middle, bottom center of the board near the fixing screw. There are two of them (cylindrical objects). The left one was the culprit. However when I fixed it, it turns on immediately but goes blinking red after that. Phillips say it is a static discharge problem. I might blown something when soldering the parts. I don't know what. Any ideas?

SOURCE: 50 inch plasma blank screen

I bought my Philips Magnavox 50" plasma in June of 2007. In february of 2009, I noticed increasingly longer delays in the video coming on after turning on the power and then the audio began to delay coming on. After a few weeks of this problem the audio and video then stopped coming on at all. However, there was power going to the unit because the green power light was working. I noticed over 50 other consumers on this website had the same problem. WITH THE HELP OF OTHERS ON THIS WEBSITE, I HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM FOR $40. YES, FOR LESS THAN $100.00 I HAVE A WORKING HDTV AGAIN, BUT WITH NO THANKS TO PHILIPS - MAGNAVOX. THEY WERE USELESS. 


1. Unplug your power supply cord.
2. Remove back panel on your HD.
3. Look for capacitors that have a bubbled or slightly raised and rounded top. This indicates the capacitors have overheated or leaked and need to be replaced. The normal look is a flat surface with no raised features at all. (I had two bad capacitors that were side-by-side and identical: 3300uf 10v. Also, they should be located on the power supply board. My power supply board is in the middle of my 50" plasma.) 
4. Go to an electronics repair store or Radio Shack and see if they carry your capacitor type and size and replace them yourself if you are comfortable with removing the capacitors and soldering new ones to the power supply board. The capacitors will cost you $2.00 each or less. 
5. I was not comfortable replacing the capacitors myself so I removed the power supply board by removing the screws and unplugging several wire connections. This was not difficult at all. I then brought the power supply board to a local electronics shop that did repairs on HDTVs and simply asked them to remove the bad capacitors and solder two new capacitors onto the power supply board. They did it for $40, which included cost for the 2 new capacitors, while I waited and it only took about 10 minutes.
6. I replaced the power supply board and back panel of TV and it worked!!!

Some people on this sight suggested replacing the capacitors with some that have higher temperature ratings. Based on that advice, I wanted to replace my two that were bad (3300uf 10v) with two rated at 4700uf 35v, but my electronics guy suggested against it. Instead, I replaced mine with 3300uf 50v, with the only difference from the original parts being the higher voltage (50v instead of 10v). I figure if the problem occurs again, I now know I can get it fixed for less than $50.00. Philips - Magnavox should be ashamed for such poor customer service and not telling people about this simple fix. When I called their customer service support number I was simply directed to a repair place --over two hours away!!!

SOURCE: Philips 42PF5320 plasma - unplugged and plugged in. wont turn on

This is a common problem on these plasma TV's. The problemresides in the high voltage boards known as the X and Y Sustainboards.. You can purchase them here for a very reasonable price:

The above link is to a Y-SUS board. The X-Sus board is often the 2nd cause of failure and can be found here:

Totest which board is failing, you need to check voltage input to theYSUS board first... Input should be 120V from Power supply, outputshould be above 250V.. Do this test with XSUS disconnected. IF 250+Vexists, then XSUS is damaged. If not, then the YSUS is the faulty part.

Unplug the box's power cord for 5 minutes and wait for it to reset, plug it in, wait another 3 minutes for the box to reboot, then power up the box. If that doesn't fix it then you might have to call your satellite/cable company.

My grandma has recently been gifted a Polaroid TV as a Christmas gift. When the free view channels had the TV reset she lost the signal to an outdoor cctv camera for the building. We can't seem to get it...

probably the camera is either analogue or video . How was it connected to the TV via the Aerial Cable or via an AV input
If the camera is Analogue it may be on a ATV channel. So you would need to switch the input Source on the remote for the tv and check the ATV channels. If it was on a AV then try checking the AV input sources.
The free view channels is probably DTV source . .

TV does not have aHDMI port so what audio and vdeo csbles needed to connect to a Sky HD box ?

There is a side socket connection set on your Philips TV. You can connect two audio channels Left and Right and one Video. Connect these socket with an AV cable, and connect the other end of that cable to your SKY HD boxe's respective output sockets. Then select the TV input to AV by going into its menu and surfing through it. That is all for settings. OK

How do i connect a playstation 3 to a philips tv

The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a high-definition gaming console that supports both standard AV connections and high-resolution connections (such as HDMI). Most of the older Philips TVs come with a standard AV input. Newer, flat-panel Philips TVs include standard AV inputs and high-resolution inputs. To get the best video quality out of your PS3, using an HDMI connection is recommended if the option is available. The PS3 does not include an HDMI cable, only a standard AV cable

Standard AV
  • 1 Turn off the PS3.
  • 2 Connect the flat end of the PS3 AV cable into the "AV Multi Out" port on the back of the PS3.
  • 3 Connect the "red," "white" and "yellow" prongs on the opposite end of the PS3 AV cable into the corresponding "red," "white" and "yellow" AV inputs on the TV (usually located on the side or in the back).
  • 4 Press the "Source" button on the Philips TV remote.
  • 5 Select the "AV" video display mode.
  • 6 Turn on the PS3. The PS3 logo will appear on the screen.
  • HDMI Connection

    When i press av on my remote control i have tv ext and digital options but where has the options for ext2 and 3 etc gone

    Dont know your specific model, **** some new tv's will only allow access to av inputs that is connected with cables and a component. Move your cabling from ext 1 to ext 2 or 3 and see if you can access the av ext. If still no access on ext 2/3 the av input board or backup memory could be faulty.

    Does you 9631 have 2 HDMI ports ? And are u trying to use both HDMI ports at once trying to use the pic in pic feature ? The processor might not be able to process both HDMI signals at once. Try using the tuner (a tv channel and a AV connection ) and see if you have the same problem).
