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.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

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.

Philips plasma won't turn on first time

I have found this on a site and am in the proccess of trying to mend my plasma PF9964 as it started to take longer and longer until it stopped coming on. I've got the back off so I just need to un solder capacitors and replace. Here's the info I found. Bad power switch circuit General Comments If you have this problem with your Philips 32PF9964: When I switch the TV on, it appears as though it is going to start i.e the green light comes on, then after about 10 seconds it switches itself off and the standby light flashes red. It takes 10 /12 times before it starts and is getting worse. This is the solution: The problem is three caps. Change the cap 2663, 2664 both 100µ/25V and 2662,1000µ/25V. After you have changed them your TV will work again. You will find them easy if you unscrew the back on the plasma TV. Cheers, Mike
