2 year old Phillips 42" Plasma TV won't turn on

When I switch the TV on, it appears as though it is going to start i.e the green light comes on, then after about 10 seconds it switches itself off and the standby light flashes red. It started a few days ago and would turn on after a few tries and now finally won't respond. Just keeps doing what I stated above. I found another website (not interactive) that issued this solution: "The problem is three caps. Remove the back of the Plasma. Change the cap 2663, 2664 both 100µ/25V and 2662,1000µ/25V. After you have changed them your TV will work again." Does this sound right? Where do you find these parts? And how easy is it to replace myself. Phillips offered no advice when called except to unplug TV and plug back in, which I already did three times with no change. They then said to call a serviceman (thanks for the great tip Phillips.) I appreciate any help if it is possible to resolve this problem myself. Thank you in advance for your time and assitance, Tony BearFan5

My Phillips flat screen model 42fd9935/17 has started going black after playing for about 2 hours... you can still hear the sound, but the screen is black... the picture will come back after turning the tv...


The cost of getting this plasma fixed is not costwise compared to getting a new TV. I recommend NOT to get another plasma but get either an LCD or LED for the best quality compared with price. Plasma parts can be quite expensive especially for a 10 year old model or may not be available.

This is because the power switch operated the socket that your TV is plugged into. Unplug it and plug it in another socket that is not operated by a switch. Appliances should not be plugged into a socket operated by a switch because of the inconsistency of power to the socket. Lights are about the only thing that should be plugged in.

I had the same problem and fixed with a great online tutorial. Just replace 3 capacitors available at Radioshack onthe the board. 2662, 2663, 2664 1 is a 1000uf the others are 100uf. Max Volts need to be over 25. It worked great, check http://dynamicorange.com/2008/06/25/fixing-a-plasma-tv/

My 42 inch plasma wont turn back on after power cut?


Hi,
We purchased a phillips plasma 50" in july 06 and it cut on and off 5 or more times a day I called phillips customer service they told us it was due to the cable company they came out and changed the tv jack gave us a new box and tested the lines said everything was ok. The problem still kept happening got back to phillips and they sent us a flash drive to update the info in the tv. still kept happening told us it was due to tv being sensitive to power flutuations. well we are now 5mths out of warrenty and the power board blows up! phillips will not do anything to help the person I spoke with admitted we were given bad advice the bill was estimated at over $500 so if I were you if its still under warrenty make them send someone out to look at it, Reading up on phillips tv complaints this seems to be a common thing By the way phillips customer service sucks dont rely on them to help you much. good luck
