Replacing power supply main

My philips 42 ambilight has been a great TV for 4 years and recently was diagnosed with a bad power supply main. I am moving to europe in a few months and wondering if the replacement power supply main for my philips 42 ( 42PF9966/37) I am about to order will support 240v/ 50HZ ? Since I am already replacing it can a different power supply be ordered that is Euro Friendly, 240v ? The label inside the back cover says 110-240v 50-60hz, is it as simple as changing power cords?

Any help would be appreciated ,
Mike in Dallas

Your best bet is to check owneres manual and keep with what they suggest however when ordering you may want to ask for tech support to see what they say but i would stick with what you had especially if it worked great that way you dont want to overpower your tv if that is what it was used to ..if it ain't broke don't fix it i hope that helps

Hello,

Your power supply board is not yet dead, You know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.


Hope this will help in solving the problem....

In the Samsung power supply on the Philips TV, this part is known to fail and needs to be serviced or replaced. If you can do simple soldering work, you can replace these for less than $20 (for parts and shipping).

Tv worked last night. This morning, no picture, no sound but ambilight works as normal...any clue??


this could be caused by vented capacitors in power supply..........look for domed tops on the electrolytics(small can shaped devices)on power supply board. These are bad and need replacing. 1000uf 10v.
Replace with high-temp(105 degrees C) electrolytic cap.
I use 25v or greater. Good success........meder'sTV

Having problems turning on 2 year old Phillips


Philips TVs tend to have issues with bad capacitors in their power supplies. Failing capacitors tend to have slightly different ESR (equivalent series resistance) values when they have been left off, versus after they are warmed up and charged up. Either a new power supply board or replacement of the faulty capacitors will fix the problem.

I have a philips 42PF9641D/10 and the ambilight on the left side will not come on (lcd tv) any ideas? On turning on the TV both ambilights came on then the left side went off after about a minute!


probably you got a processing unit problem, which makes your tv stopping recognizing the screen information .
you should try resetting all factory default settings, if this doesn't work, you will have to take the TV to an assistance center .

Bring your TV to eletronics technician. The main power of your TV has a broken semiconductor parts that need to be replace. ( Maybe power mosfet, fuse, transistor, capacitor, etcc ).

Phillips ambilight 50 in red light problem


I had this problem on a 42" Philips Ambilight. After reading in another forum, opened up the back, and found 2 leaking capacitors on the center circuit board (main power supply pc board) toward the bottom. Tops of the capacitors were bludged out (10v 3300uF) and leaking electrolytes. Unsoldered the old ones myself, went to Radio Shack. They were out, so order 12 on ebay for $6.63 including shipping. Resoldered and works fine. Can't do it yourself? Take the board out (just unhook the cables & unscrew it ), and take it to a computer shop or tv repair or someone who knows how to solder, and have them change them. Piece of cake!

Philips ambilight 42inch plasma


You can fix this yourself with a software upgrade - get the upgrade from Philips website - go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter your model number, click on the verison of your model ending in /37, and click on "Software & Drivers"; click on the link that says "Firmware Upgrade - Software". Instructions are on the same page - make sure you only transfer the .upg file, not the entire zip file to a portable memory stick.

Good luck!
