Question about Philips 42PF7320A 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Philips 42PF7320A Plasma no power

My plasma started with problems last Aug 08. First it was the menu where it kept popping on. The first repairman said it was the main board and took the tv to his shop and returned the next day and charged the warranty co for a new main board. Only fixed it for a few weeks. The second repair man fixed the menu problem with a software update. The tv had another problem when you first turned the tv on it could take up to 2 minutes, then go black and picture come back on with a full screen of colored snow. Different repairman said bad main board and replaced another main board at the house and said that would fix the problem. It didn't fix it. Another repairman came out said it was the y board so he left and ordered the y board. He came back out a week later and opened the back of the tv and pointed to the left side of opened tv and said see (black capistors i think) there is your problem. He opened the box with the part and the part he had was for the opened right side of the tv. He replaced the y board (he called it) and said this should fix the problem. He called a week later and we told him it did not fix the problem so he said he needed to order the x board. The repairmand called a few weeks later and wanted to come out and install the x board. I did not call him back. A week later he called again and my wife told him not now. Well he wanted to make money so he called the warranty co. and had them call us and said let him come out. I told the warranty company that they had spent too much on this tv and the problem was still there so they should not put anymore money into the tv. We would just let it be until it would no longer work. Warranty company still wanted us to let him install the other part, so we did. After installing the other part he plugged the tv in and no power. He called is boss and his boss said bad new part. He put the old part back in and turned the tv on and no power. So he said tell the warranty company dead set and hurried putting things partially back and left. Now we are in for the problems with getting the tv replaced.What they wanted to give us was a joke. We love the Philips Plasma. On the x board there is 3 film cables. If they are not seated correctly would this prevent the tv from turning on? What could he have done to the tv to make it not work? The last words out of Beaus mouth was power supply. I think this guy had no idea of what he was doing.
Thank You...

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
for more detail.
Thanks for conatacting Fixya.

It's a software problem with the TV. Go to the PHILIPS web site for downloading the latest software upgrade for your TV to fix the problem.
Lots of Philips TV are having the same problem. Philips support should provide the software for free.
