Philips E-Box FTR9965 Blinking Red Standby Light

Switched the E-Box on and instead of the standy light going green all it does now is flash/blink red. any ideas? The Philips plasma TV will not operate now - although if I connect my PC to the screen it works fine so there is no problem with the screen.

Re: Philips E-Box FTR9965 Blinking Red Standby Light

Mine was the same, took it to comet, fixed it within a week and gave me a warranty. Thirty pounds call out fee and another forty five pounds when they bought it back fixed, highly recommended, not like the idiots at philips who couldn't be bothered

Re: Philips E-Box FTR9965 Blinking Red Standby Light

Hi, my TV is starting to develope a problem & I have traced it to the e box (mine is FTR9964). I had the screen repaired in January (would'nt start from cold) cost was £156 inc vat. Anyway this time its the ebox & since we are going digital next year I thought I would try & do away with the e box by using one of these I managed to buy one on eBay for £30, so fingers crossed it should be problem solved.

Retuning Philips DTR 1500 digibox

Had same problem. Remedy is to put digibox back to factory reset. Dis-connect from mains. Keep pressing + button on front panel as you re-connect to mains. Red LED will be on, when orange LED blinks release + button. briefly press + button. You have solid red LED and blinking red LED. Enter code 9 9 0 0, by remote blinking LED will show green. Wait a few minutes and the instalation page will appear on screen. Go to update and start as you did before and C5 should be installed. Hope that helps.

Hi, we have a Philips Plasma TV with receiver box, serial # FTR9965/17S. Recently we hooked a sound bar up to it. It still worked fine for a day, but the next day, the screen was black, the little light on...

If you have the owner's guide at home, shoot me the model number from the set itself; it should be shown on the guide.
If I can determine the nature of the 'receiver box,' perhaps I can suggest a work-around. I have a feeling that is a converter of some kind and it may be of a type not brand dependent; i.e., replaceable with another brand.
I'd really like to help you and gain some insight into this problem too.

Replace MP40 and its working perfect

This is to do with the capacitors inside the TV numbers 2662, 2663 and 2664 - If you unscrew the back panel of the tv you will see the capacitors towards the top of the tv, from memory around the middle.

Replace the capacitors (make sure you get the polarity the right way round) and you should find all is ok.

Phillips FTR9965 / 12s

The no signal message is there because the screen is waiting for a signal from the receiver, it then switches into protection mode (flashing red). The usual cause is a blown protection fuse inside the receiver.
