    This is the second time I've had this happen with this TV. The first time it was still under warranty. We had a storm and our surge protector was faulty (or so we thought). We had a planned power outage today for our neighborhood so I took my sons out to run some errands....everything was turned off before we left. We got home and I went to turn on the TV and got the red flashing light. I tried shutting the surge protector off and turning it back on but still got the same result (this is a new surge protector...not the same one it was plugged into the last time this happened). The TV is not under warranty any more so I was curious about fixing the TV or how much some one thinks it may be to have it fixed....should we just invest in a new TV since this is the 2nd time this has happened with this one?

Yep, its a gonner. If you want to fix it yourself you can save several hundred bucks, but it will still cost you about $400 to do yourself, depending on the problem of course. This set and its samsung counterpart are horribly plagued by faulty ysus buffers. If you wan't to try and fix it, comment again and I'll walk you through the diagnosis process. Its a bit lengthy, I'll prewarn you.

Tv will not turn on when tried on either tv or with remote green light flashes 3or 4 times then turns into red flashing light no picture or sound at all.Have tried changing batteries in the remote and fuse...


Hi.The signal lights red means the primary power of your tv is good and the signal lights green indicate the second power.If the green lights is flashing it means that they have shorted parts in the crt board.Maybe the problem is in the power section of the crt.Need for troubleshoot or repair the crt board.

Philips 42PF9631D 42 in. Plasma Television TV wont turn on..I get the initial green power light, but it quickly goes to a flashing red light (flashes a series of 4 times). Philips tech support is a joke....


Philip have alot power problems with their tv.Check power board for puff up parts like Capacitors,or rust in cracks or soldering.Changes parts or the whole power board.

The tv will turn on but no the screen wont. and


Replace the lamp would be the first thing to try. Lamp door switch on this model is notorious for going bad. If you replace lamp and still won't turn on jumper door switch. If you take off back you can see switch board.

I cant get the tv to come on it has power


You have a bad power supply (AC adapter). Watch closely at the red light while turning tv on to see if red light momentarily flashes green, then back to red.
