    I had the same problem about 9 months after i purchased my tv and had to have a service tech come out. He took the tv away and after about 3 months he called me and said that Phillips had just gotten the part to him because it was a manufature defect with the power supply they were using

Hi kellar6263,

Try unplugging the TV from the wall for about 15 seconds. Then plug it and see if it works. There are more troubleshooting tips that are beyond the scope of what I can write out on FixYa (like upgrading the firmware on your TV using the USB port) but you can check out the Support Page for your Television.

Best of Luck
Jordan

Turning on my phillips tv the power button is blinking red


Plasma? Your power supply has bad capacitors. 3300uf most likely. This is a common problem on some Philips plasma TVs. Power board is located top center of the TV with the rear access panel removed. look toward the lower left portion of the board. If you notice any capacitors (they look like little plastic wrapped cans) with swollen tops or leaking dark fluid from the top of them, replace them. Myself, I always step up the voltage rating... ex: 3300uf, 10v -> 3300uf, 16v.

I had the same problem and fixed with a great online tutorial. Just replace 3 capacitors available at Radioshack onthe the board. 2662, 2663, 2664 1 is a 1000uf the others are 100uf. Max Volts need to be over 25. It worked great, check http://dynamicorange.com/2008/06/25/fixing-a-plasma-tv/

Red light blinking


My one take too long to turn on, relay/green light on and off for hours before it can start, I use a hair dryer to heat it up everytime, aim at the center from top, then it turn on very faster, no need to service
