The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Can i mount a 50inch phillips tv on the wall model number 50pfp533/37


Yes...My 50inch plasma is mounted on the wall; has been for four years. You must be sure to screw the bolts for the wall mount which will suppport the TV are in the middle of the studs. you can get a cheap stud finder at home depot from under $10.00. It's usually only four bolts to screw into the studs and you're set.

How to diagnose board problems?


one board controls all the screen if not mistaken but these boards are expensive so it might pay just to dump it in the recycle bin and buy a new TV

While watching tv half the screen goes black


Download software from the Phillips web site. Use a usb flashdrive to transfer the download to the TV. This worked well for us and our picture is better than ever.

My plasma screen goes black on bottom 1/2 of the screen


In most cases the lower Y-Buffer board causes this issue. Unless you know how to work on a TV it is suggested that you have a technician look at the TV and repair it for you.

Screen lower half goes black/blank


The lower "Y Buffer" board is defective. Best repaired by a technician, or contact Phillips support for the part if you think you are able to replace a small circuit board on your own.

No picture, sound ok


I have a similar issue. Sometimes the entire screen goes black and sometimes only one-half - either the top or bottom half goes black. The only solution we have found is to gently tap the TV (usually the front side) and the picture will come back for awhile. It almost seems heat related as it only goes out after the first 10 minutes of use. There must be a fix to this.
