Question about Philips 42PF5521D 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

42 plasma philips

Tv will not turn on,sound comes on then tv clicks still no picture,control pannel [manual] does not respond. I have the same problem - I hit the power button on my remote - the green light on the TV shows it is coming on - I hear the TV click a couple times, no picture, no sounds. After 3 attempts it usually finally works. I had contacted Philips before and they sent out a repair comapny that took my TV away, fixed something that had to do with the power converter or something - but the TV is still the same - I have never pressed the power button and had it turn on at first attempt.

HELP!!

I had a similar problem. You likely have 1 or more bad capacitors on the power supply board. You can easily identify them - they have a raised or rounded appearance on the top instead of being flat. Remove the power supply board and take to electronics repair shop and have them replaced. The capacitors only cost me $4.24 for two. Now mine works fine. The repair man replaced them for free. It took him only 10 minutes to solder them on the board. Easy, cheap fix but manufacturer won't tell you that. I fixed this on 1-02-09. My 2 bad capacitors were "3300uf 10v" and I replaced with "3300uf 16v" but you might be able to replace with "4700uf 35 v" also.

All you can do at home is leaving the TV unplugged for one or two hours and see if this solve the problem.

If the unit has just been repaired, and it is faulty again, contact the service back and have the problem fixed.

Common faults on plasma TV can concert the PSU power supply board, the sustain boards, and other boards, wiring and connectors.
The testing and repair job must eb done by a technician.

if you are getting sound but no picture that good at least the set is not
going into protection mode. Which can make fault finding more
difficult.
What you should check is that the 12 volt supply from the power supply
to the signal board is present.
other then that check that you have the high voltages present if this is not
the case then you most probably have an issue with the x control board
or scavio as its known.
