Question about Insignia 42" Flat-Panel Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Watching and Suddenly turned black, but sound still worked.

It has done this before, but only when I was changing channels too quickly (I just turned the TV off and on again and it works). It's a Philips 42"plasma, PAL cuz I live in Europe now, but not sure if that makes a difference. Now, I was just watching CNN and poof ..wasn't changing channels or anything...just heard a click..nothing more or less..click click and the image was gone, just black screen and sound still continued. I turned the TV off for 24 hrs and still doesn't work. Does this mean that I am stuck with an overpriced radio that doesn't even receive radio frequencies!

If turning the TV on and off makes no difference, try contact Phillips to see if they can talk you through a factory reset. If this does not work, the set may require service.

I was watching my team in the first half of their fisrt game of the NCAA and it suddenly went black and it wouldn't turn on after that. It was working perfectly fine before it happened. Please h


You have indicated this is a 50PF9630A Philips which is a Plasma set.

If you have not done so unplug and then replug the set--if still same issue the set has a problem.

Someone would have to open and examine for power supply problem and then begin sub of boards (buy and replace) to see which board or boards are bad.

Black screen but have sound


If it is not a hardware problem, it is most likely the Closed Captioning system.
If you can still see the on-screen menu, go into your TV's menus and disable Closed Captioning.

TV or Satellite Box Problem?


Do you have a VCR or DVD recorder? If yes, set it to record what you are watching. After a "blackout" rewind the tape and review it. If there is a blackout on the tape, the problem is the sallite box, if not, it is the TV! QED
