Question about Philips 50PF9630A 50 in. Plasma Television

2 Answers

I have a Philips plasma TV model #50PF9731D/37 with a weird ambi-light issue. When I first turn on the set, the ambi-light functions on both sides. But after I introduce a signal (cable and PS3 use HDMI ports...XBOX360 uses component video) the ambi-light turns off on the left side. The right side still works normally. The picture and sound work flawlessly.

Hi cobrax50, Are you aware that your TV has been recalled because of the Ambu-Light. apperently they are haveing an issue with the light being a fire hazard. If you have already taken care of this, please disregard this solution. I have provided a link to the recall notice.

Unfortunately the 'green line' issue mentioned in the review appears to still be happening on screens that are shipping to end users. (It's been documented in detail on AVForums).

Hopefully this should be rectified by a firmware change (simply being able to adjust the picture vertically as well as horizontally would help).

The clearlcd technology is new for philips

VERY VERY COMMON IN PHILIPS!!! People all over the internet are noticing the same problem. Philips is still working on it. I will let you know as soon as they have a solution.

Phillips Plasma 50 inch - Model: 50PF9731D-37 - Does not turn on


It is at least worth looking at to make a decision.


Some general info:

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.

My power comes on, then the green LED light switches to red, and flashes 6 times over and over. I tried the fix on youtube with the IC capacitors for the 50PF9731D/37 even ordered the $1 capacitors but...


I am definitely a girl explaining this because I don't know the correct parts of the tv. Here goes. We had the same problem last year, called philips they advised I do a software update on the tv because that fixes everything....wrong. The light still flashed and no picture. I called them back and they said I had to find a philips tv repair to take it into....got lucky because there was one close by. Come to find out it was some board inside that cost $400 to repair. I thought cool it's cheaper than a new tv! Worked great until about 2 weeks ago the tv turns on and the light is green and picture pops up a minute later. Oh boy more problems! As I sit here right now my tv no longer has a picture. The green light is on but nothing. It's funny because we had it repaired this time last year. I'm fed up and buying a new tv!

Power come on then shuts off after seconds and blinks red lights four times


Open the back of the TV and check for blown, swollen capacitors. Usually 10v-3300ufd. There is one near where the 120v cable that powers the power supply, 350v-47ufd that might be bad too. The power supply sits in the center of the TV. Good luck!

I have a Philips plasma 42 with black lines across the screen


I would first check if there is an available firmware upgrade for your model .Upgrade requires you to download firmware from philips website.Then transfer it to a memory stick .Then use a memory stick reader to plug into tv for firmware upgrade.Other wise the set would probably need repair .Possible a bad SSB board or another issue

System will not power up


Remove the back from the set and look at the power board in the center of the TV. It will probably have one of more capacitors with the tops bulging out. Replace them with the same value part. Available from radio shack and almost any electronic suppliers.
