Question about Philips 50PFP5332D 50 in. Plasma Television
I have a Philips 50 inch plasma tv. The light is blinking red and it won't turn on. What is wrong?
I have Philips 50 inch plasma TV purchased almost exactly 3 years ago. Completely out of warranty. Paid 1999 bucks for it new. Now Plasma TVs similar to this are 800 bucks. I figured the cost of a repair tech coming to the house would be around 500 bucks.. so I decided I could "do no harm" and look at the power supply. Sure enough, two 3300 uF caps were swollen.. I am far from a true electrical repair person, and if it were not for the caps being swollen, would have no idea that they were bad. I am however a little bit skilled in soldering. So I ordered replacements for about 8 bucks. The caps were actually only 1.50 ea. but the min order fee and shipping brought it to about 8 bucks.. I got them from studiosoundelectronics.com . They came in today and installed them... to my astonishment, my TV works as good as it did when it was new... I must say that I am dissapointed in Philips.. and will never buy another product from them. If it is out of warranty.. they will not even talk to you.. I don't think it is too much to ask when you spend 1999 bucks on a product from them.. I expected my TV to have more than 2.999 years in life in it. Thanks a million to this site for providing soulutions for folks..

Most Likely the power supply board has a few capacitors blown.You can repair it by removing back cover power supply board will be at the center of tv.Look for caps that have a round top these are the bad ones replace with same value caps.You will have to take power supply board out.Be careful these power supply boards have alot of voltage store in them.

I opened the TV and the blue caps, there are some small and some big. All the smal ones the top is shinny, all the big ones have a black top. Are these the ones I need to replace. I think there are 6 or 8 big ones. One thing I have seen is that If I disconnect everything the TV will turn on, If I leave something connected i.e.: A computer, it will not turn on until I disconnect the monitor cable. What could this be
