Question about Philips 42PF9630A 42 in. Plasma Television
My problem is pretty simple. The menu screen for my 42" Philips plasma TV keeps popping up on the screen. I press the menu button on the remote to exit, but the menu pops right back up after a couple seconds. I've tried unplugging the TV for the night hoping it would "reboot" when plugged back in.....didn't work. I thought maybe it was a problem in the remote, so I took the batteries out......still kept popping up. I'm out of ideas! HELP!
The most commom causes are One. There ia a stuck button on the tv itself. The Menu button. The membrane switch or the TACT switch is bad and needs to be replaced. The Main bd can also be bad.

I did the same, replaced two bulging capacitors...cost me 2.00 for the capacitors and $20 for the desoldering/soldering tools. First time doing anything close to this with any electronics...tv works great now.

SOURCE: Philips 42 wont turn on
I am having this same problem. I have "fixed" this problem twice by replacing 2 failed capacitors inside. The fix is pretty easy and the cost of the replacement parts is about $2.50. Unfortunately, the fix doesn't last. The first time, the TV worked again for about 6 months, but the 2nd time, when I replaced with higher grade capacitors, I only got another 2 weeks out of the TV. I think it's time to cut my losses and get a new set. Repair costs were estimated at $600. ...just not worth it.
