Question about Philips 42PF9631D 42 in. Plasma Television
Model# Philips 42PF9631D/37 w/ Amber light
Can you provide me the location of the capacitor's and where on the electronic board to be soiderd and the color of the 2 capacitor's that needs to be replaced also the replacement part number for the two for this fix.
My TV blinks 7 times red then recycles on power up. I have to continue unpluging and pluging in the power cord to get my TV to come on..
Thanks for your support.
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, prior to replacing any component, perform a visual inspection with the rear cover removed and the unit unplug for some time (discharged). Most electrolytic capacitors are can type with a flattened top. Obvious defect would be manifested by bulging, cracked, oozing, leaking, split casing and powdery accumulation on one of the pins coming out from the rubber bottom.
Of course, best approach would be to compare/reference the service manual or at least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

before attempting anything, it seems to me that since you asked about the "electronic board" that you may not be very familiar with electronics especially tvs which can be quite dangerous. There are multiple boards on this tv and in this case I would replace the power supply itself and it would be the board that would have the faulty capacitors. This board is located in the middle of the back of the tv and if you don't know how to replace a capacitor, then it would be easier to replace the board. The bad ones will be swollen at the top. Also you could test them with an appropriate capacitance meter if you had one to confirm that they are bad. The numbers will be right on the capacitors if you choose to just replace them, but again if you have no experience, then don't do it yourself.
