My 42 inch Philips plasma TV's tube blew a crack in it

It always ran hot, way hotter than any other I've felt. Then one day, I was watching it, 5 months after buying it, and then the screen at first went blue for a few seconds, then black (as if it were off). The little blue "ON" light was still on but nothing. I shut it off immediately and looked at it and saw a little crack about 1/4 inch long on the tube behind the protective clear screen which spread like a spider's web, for lack of a better term, as it cooled down. What happened? Please, it took me a year and a half to save up for it, then this ****. Very disappointed to say the least.

SOURCE: Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound

Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.

SOURCE: No picture and only buzzing sound coming from plasma with cracked screen

Most of the times this type of damage is due to panel overheating. This can occur due to many situations but most offten is due to internal mulfunction of some of the high power/voltage driving circuits. You can only hope that the dealer will replace the set under warranty. Do not settle with a repair.

SOURCE: 42" Philips plasma screen goes black

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

Hitachi ultravision is hot, to the touch, Is there concern?


I've owned a 42HDX99 since 2007, It's always been warm/hot. Still works/looks Awesome. Plasmas do generally run hotter than
LCD/LED's. Also have a 58" Samsung Plasma ( which I've had to repair ) and a 2009 Toshiba 1080P LCD ( still works great )

I have a 42 inch philips plasma tv with a broken screen, could i replace it with a screen from a panasonic 42 inch tv


No--this is called a PDP or plasma display panel and no two (even same brand) can be interchanged.

The cost of a Panel exceeds the cost of a new set--broken screen=fatal issue.

Quietly watching tv, then a pop, a buzz and a crack on the screen


Yes,if the screen cracked from the inside of the panel and not the outside,you are entitled to either a replacement or warrantied repair. That was caused by heat and we have serviced heat related manufacturer design flaws. Unfortunatly,it is out of warranty,but if it was caused through normal use and not user error,a technician will have to confirm it was internal cracks. MAKE SURE you call philips for an authorized servicer and have the reference number on hand,model number,and serial number.

Crack on the inside screen of my 42" Philips Plasma TV


This is a known problem with Philips. If you keep on them they will work with you. Another option is call a repair shop in your area and see if they can help you out. Sometimes a repair shop will help out if you allow them to do the service if they are able to get Philips to pay for the repair.
Good Luck
