Philips TV, Model # 50PL9126D/37

We turn the TV on the blue power light on the front turns on, everything is fine for about 15 seconds then the screen goes black and 2 red lights (the lamp and temperature lights) come on the power button. The sound is fine but there is no picture. My husband opened up the TV and found that the lamp comes on, gets brighter and then just shuts down. I need to know what exactly the problem is as I wouldn't think it to be the lamp alone as it comes on and gets bright. I am just praying it is not the lamp engine because then we are talking $900 to fix.

Check to make sure all the ventilation opening on the tv arent plugged. if not, then you will have to make sure all the fans inside the tv are working properly.

My 50 inch Phillips tv model #50PL9220D/37 wont turn on? blue power light is just flashing ? what could be the problem?

Hello more than likely the lamp has gone bad. On that set you have to remove the back cover to check the lamp to see if it has broken. the picture gives you an idea and some instructions on how to change it. tks7bef3142-61c4-4329-b27d-2507769a830c.jpg

I have a Philips 50PL9126D/37. I began having my screen go black (audio still playing) and a red light appeared in my blue power button. I removed the back of the television and checked the lamp, which was...

You cooould have a bad ballast, but it's probably either that you put the lamp in wrong, or you have a defective lamp though. There's a 33% chance that any of those are the case. Unplug the TV for 30 seconds. Plug it back in. Try turning it on again. Make sure you didn't over tighten the lamp during install. Especially the screw on the side. It should be a tight connection. Send the lamp back and get a new one. Usually they come with a warranty. If the new one doesn't work, it's either the ballast, or the power supply.

Philips 42PF9956/37 Plasma TV - Looking for y sustain board

it isnt the Y-SUS board, it is the Power supply, iv fixed this exact problem twice in the last month, try turning the tv on, and when it turns green, unplug it real fast, while light is still green, after 15 seconds plug it back in, then hit the power button, if it dont come on, hit the power button again, this time, as soon as it turns off, hit the power button again to turn back on, sometimes you can trick the tv and it will turn on, at least i was able to do it, and once it comes on, it should work fine, untill you turn it off again.

Problem with philips dlp tv

This sounds like one if not both of your cooling fans are not functioning properly. Therefore, you'll need to replace a fan more than likely.
