Question about Philips 42MF130A 42 in. Plasma EDTV
Unit turns on normally (power relays close). All votages off the PDC Board are normal for a few seconds. LED 8001, 8002 and 8003 all come on. A few seconds later, LED 8001 then 8002 goes out, power relays open and Red LED 8004 comes on steady.
IF your not getting sound and its shutting down it could be a the main board, or the power supply (huge board in there.) I just got done parting one of these tvs that was in a vacation rental. the tv met with an unfortunate accident so the screen was cracked and so on. Anyhow if your intrested i have the main board and the power supply board for that exact model. I was listing them on ebay and saw this post. Listing here. I am going to probaly get about 25 buck a board (very cheap) plus shipping. IF your intrested let me know and I list that power supply board as well. I can't guarentee it will fix it but its worth the shot for 50 plus shipping. form my experience with mostly LCD tvs if your not getting sound odds are its the main board. I also listed what was refered to as the signal scaler (logic board)

I'm not sure about the specific problem solution,but I can point you in a good direction, look for 3 legged transistors mounted on heat sinks,they are usually called output IC's or driver ic's. There are 2 in particular that control x and y axis visuals and if they read 0,then they are shorted and need to be replaced. if they are near a metal coil,then ignore the above statement. also,try unplugging the LVDS cable,it's a cable with many tiny wires that goes from the small signal (scaler to other manufacturers) board to the display panel,if it lights,its either the logic board or SSB.
