Question about Philips 42FD9932 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Start-up relay not locking in.

Please can you with this problem? I have a 42 PF9964 Philips plasma.

After turning on a relay is heard bouncing on and off and the green light pulses on and off with it. I am feeding a VGA signal into the VGA socket.

This problem has been getting worse for some time and today the relay just will not lock in.

I am fairly technical and probably could replace the relay if I could identify it.

Many thanks.

You might have some swollen capacitors on your power supply board. They will be easy to spot out, because they will not have flat tops like the rest of the capacitors. Replace them with the same rating capacitor. You will need a soldering iron, solder and solder wick for this repair. If you are not comfortable with electronics I would recommend taking it to a authorized service provider.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

42FD9954 philips plasma TV flashing LED it wont come on

The problem is in the standby power supply. the standby power supply generates the 9 volts and the 5 volts requird by the tv. If you measure the 9 volts source, with only the red light on, the correct voltage is 9 volts. However if the 9 volt measures 6.5 to 7 volts it is too low and the startup relays cannot operate. My set is a model 42FR9954/17S. In this set if capicator, 2603, is heated the voltage climbs to 9 volts and the relays work. If cold air is applied to the capicator the relays fail to operate. Replace capacitor 2503 and the problen is fixed. This capicator is: 47 Ufd, rated @ 450 volts, and is 20%.

Any ideas?

1) Replace C2663 by 2020 021 91677 (100uF/50V, 105°C).
2) Place Schottky diode 9336 247 60133 on pin 7 (+) and 8 (-) of IC7650,
to avoid negative pulses, resulting in this bad startup behaviour.
