Question about Philips 30PF9946 30 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
The TV worked fine when we went to bed. In the morning it turned on with a black screen and had sound. We have checked all the cable connections (We have cable fine on our other TV). We have tried to pushing different buttons on our remote as suggested by the usuers manual (this did create our sound to go off since we could not see what results we were getting from pushing these buttons). We have been told that plasma TVs have a life of only so many viewing hours, and ours may have just died. Our TV is over two years old.
Sound no picture or shut down Power led starts green then a short amber then turns RED . If your power supply can be confirmed to be go you have a bad Inverter board. Per the manufacture this part comes only with the panel . Not cost effective . But if you go to
lcdparts.net you will locate an inverter for $ 169.99 . I had the same problem and the inverter repaired the set . Note there are similar error codes but from what I can see from all of your complaint I do be leave that your Inverter is bad . Good luk

Has not died = needs repair by qualified tech......
Did you try hard reset by unplugging ac cord for a while?
Next, voltages need to be checked inside TV.........
Let me know where this repair is going........T.
