Keeps turning off-Philips 50PF9431D

I was hoping to get some insight on a problem I'm having with my plasma HDTV. My TV keeps shutting off, turning off by itself. The green light turns to red and the only way to turn back on is to unplug and plug back in. Every couple of minutes it will turn back off. Does this sound familiar to you? Thanks.

Screen keeps displaying menu options when that button is not being pressed on remote have to turn off tv to get back to regular viewing or game playing what is making this screen keep appearing

Hi. I suspect that the remote may be the cause. Remove batteries from the remote and see if the menu appears. If it dosent, I suspect the remote may have had something spilt over it and needs to be cleaned out. Hope this helps you out.

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.

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. Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the location of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check a 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. 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 # Total cost was $7 with S/H.

Tele will not stay on

The tv has an error code thats its way of telling you there is something wrong so it shuts itself down to protect itself. I would have it looked at or call philips and they can tell you what that means. hope that helps.
