    I have a Philips 42PF5520D plasma - it sometimes won't turn on, might click as if it's going to then disappears again then lots of clicking. It also loses picture a lot, and often changes back to previous channel. this can happen several times in a row. The other problem (yes there's more!) is when you switch it off it flashes blank screen constantly. This can happen all night, which is most annoying when you're trying to sleep. You have to turn it off at the mains to stop it. Does anyone know what causes this, I see that it has affected a lot of people (ie same complaints as above on lots of forums). Thanks!

All of these problems are related except the channel changing one. That a weird one. the rest sound like your y-buffers are on the way out. This set is plagued with a bad buffer design. Looking at the tv with the back off, the boards on the far left, the two long skinny ones, and the larger one they are attatched to are what needs to be replaced. The cheapest place to get these replaced/fixed is on ebay. There is a seller named superdog** something or another. He's done two sets of these boards for me and does a fine job with really quick turnaround times. Tell him captain_axle sent you. Good luck
