You have an electrical malfunction inside the unit which can NOT be repaired by tapping, nor can it be repaired by a person who doesn't have extensive experience repairing consumer electronics devices. It is imperative that you have a professional repair the device... or throw it away, if you don't feel the repair cost can be justified. This problem will NOT get better on it's own or by tapping, and could conceivably result in the unit self-destructing and burning your house down in the process.

Bottom half of the screen goes black frequently.


You can start here: http://www.support.philips.com/support/catalog/catalog.jsp;jsessionid=87CE21B6A8264B83B8D00501ADACA8BF.app107-drp1?_dyncharset=UTF-8&country=&categoryid=FLAT_TV_CA_US_CARE&userLanguage=en&navCount=1&groupId=TV_GR_US_CARE&catalogType=&navAction=push&userCountry=us&title=Flat+TV+(plasma%2C+LCD)

Enter the exact Model Numbere in the search text field.

First verify the exact Model Number of your TV. Mine is a 42PF7220A/37.

go to:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=42PF7220A/37&scy=us&slg=en

On this page I found listed under "Software2.gif & drivers" the Firmware Upgrade Software 42PF7220A/37 v1.5.0.0

I downloaded the compressed file and extracted it to a USB Flash Drive2.gif.
After you extract the file you will have 2 files...."autorun.upg" and a "readme.txt".
Print out the readme file the delete it off the USB Flash Drive2.gif
Make sure the USB Flash Drive2.gif has only one file on it (autorun.upg)

Make sure the TV is turned off.
Put the USB Flash Drive in any of the USB ports on the TV.
Turn the TV power on with the Power Button on the righthand side of the TV.
The TV will display an Update screen.
Let the TV run through all 3 processes.
Turn the TV off and remove the USB Flash Drive.
Power the TV back up.
Hopefully the Updates fixed the problem.....

Phillips 42 inch Plasma -Screen Issues!!!


intermittent loss of picture on either bottom or top half of screen is specific to y buffer boards located on left side of screen going from top to bottom when looking at back of tv. the y lower buffer would be the board to replace to resolve the loss of bottom half of picture. if the top half also is going out intermittently could tied to upper buffer as well but just a note the y main board to right of these buffers drives those two boards so in some cases could also be part of the problem. if only bottom half is affected i would recommend replacing lower buffer only

You probably have a component breaking down on one of the circuit boards. It would have to be checked out to find out which one. Stargazer
