I think it cause by vs voltage is high. You can try to decrease the Vs voltage a little bit. You can adjust the voltage while the TV is on. The Vs voltage adjustment is locate in the power supply.

What's the perfect combination to decor the room?


Room posters alone may not be very much entertaining as much as decorated rooms add life your overall environment. But, interior designers think that the perfect combination of an awesomely arranged interior design is to make a perfect combination of decorated rooms and posters. Visualize! How things seem to be in the presence of only a room poster. Moreover, if a room is decorated, without having a poster on its walls, it would give an incomplete look. Therefore, the best part would be to make a combination of decorated rooms and room posters. For instance, if you are having a red-colored entirely decorated room with a perfect combination of a poster on all its walls, what a beautiful look it would give to you and your guests. So, what you have to do is to go for artistic room pictures or Wall posters in order to decorate your rooms in a perfect way.

42" philips plasma, black screen and flashing red light


This fix was posted on similar problem, worthy of repeating: Replaced 3300mf 10V capacitors at PS. Both had bulged slightly. Upsized to 25V as the previous solution poster had suggested 16V but I could not locate 16V so used 25V and TV is back to normal!

Makes you wonder why nobody is taking on the problem, doesn't it?
Well , to the best of my knowledge, it is because nobody really can.
To understand why you have to understand what do they sparkles come from.
They are random electricity discharges coming from capacitors or other components that act like capacitors, but mostly capacitors.
When laymen hear about capacitors they usually associate the word with bulged electrolytic capacitors, which often cause problems in electronics of all kind.
Well this time it isn't about them.
It's about all other capacitors - or other components exposing similar qualities - which are installed on the board. Most of them are small filter capacitors put in parallel to the big ones or to other passive components such as diodes and resistors.
The excessive heat developed by the sustain boards damages those capacitors. It hardens the electrostatic material they are made of and small breaks in it start occurring at voltages that shouldn't otherwise be causing issues.
The trouble is, they can be everywhere. You can't just pinpoint which ones were caught at fault and causing the sparkles.
When it gets REALLY bad eventually the whole capacitor burns and either shorts or, more commonly, just breaks.
Believe it or not I've seen a board that exploded before my very eyes and , after the explosion, started working LIKE A CHARM!
Turned out a small filter capacitor had blown. It as not essential for the board's functionality and after being problematic for so long and causing image deffects it had eventually shorted completely and literally exploded.
Luckily, the short it had created was too short in time and apparently in a circuit that could take the load for a short while without getting damaged.
So after it blew everything worked just great!
it's a real story from my repair experience.
Hope this helps all consumers, DIY enthusiasts and competitors alike :-)
