Question about Philips 42PF7220A 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Philips 42PF7220A/37B shuts after 10-15 min. LED Blinks 5 times

My TV went out of warranty and within three months got this problem of hearing static noise with no pictutre and then it shuts off, restarts and then starts bllinking the Red LED 5 times. If I unplug the TV and restart the TV then it works for another 3-5 minutes and then same thing.. Static, blank screen, restarts and red blinking lights (5 times).

While it was on warranty, I did replace the board with the cable card insert. Though after replacement I never could get to check it with a cable card but I think it could be that board. Help appreciated..

I did talk with Philips couple of times but they always tell me to go to authorized service centers which wants $189 just to look at it. The TV has been lying around for 6 months since I bought a Sony as a replacement. But thinking of fixing the Philips on the cheap on my own.

Any help appreciated:
Symptoms:
Fresh start of a good night cooling
TV will run fine for about 17-20 minutes
Then suddenly you hear static along with losing the picture
Then the TV shuts off and then restarts on its own
And then within couple of seconds red LED starts blinking with a series of 5 blinks.

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=493-1754-ND. Total cost was $7 with S/H.

Philips lists 3 models of your TV:
1) 50PFP5332D/37
2) 50PFP5332D/37B
3) 50PFP5332D/37E

User Manual for your TV (actually for the 50PFP5332D/37E):
http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/50pfp5332d_37e/50pfp5332d_37e_dfu_aen.pdf
The user manual doesn't document the logic board blink codes for errors.

What this tells me is that the TV went thru two revisions before reaching version E.
in case it helps: Philips Customer Support: 1-888-PHILIPS.
If they can't help otherwise, they can at least tell you if your set is eligible for warranty service.

Philips 42PF7220A/37B won't turn on at all. No green or red lights come on. This happened after we had a storm and the electric just went out. Any ideas?


Most likely it's a power supply board related issue. It maybe something simple like a blown fuse on the board. The fuse replaceable. Radio Shack or Electronic supply place will carry replacement fuses.
The other possibility is the power supply board itself is damaged. It maybe a bad capacitor or a transformer on the board. Replacement boards can be found on the internet. A good place the start is Shopjimmy.com.

Philips 42PF9630A Not Working - Red Led Blinks 7 Times


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
http://homenol.blogspot.com/
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

Philips 42PF7220A/37 Chassis Number BP2.3U


I think its something on the picture frame board or on the line output board. I would sway to the line output simply because I think but not sure that error code is linked to the line output stage plus when you unplugged the cable the voltage seems within parameters. Good luck.

Most likely the YSCAN UPPER board and/or YSCAN LOWER Board also gone. Your new YSUS board may damage again if you don't replace the bad YSCAN boards. Try to replace the three boards together and then to verify which boards are bad one by one. Good luck.
