This is a bad power supply and an easy fix. Their are several electrolytic capacitors on the power supply. If one is bad it will have a bulge on the top. Mine had a bad 2200uF and a bad 1200uF capacitor. About $7 worth of parts at Radio Shack. Radio Shack had the 2200uF but it was axial leads instead of radial. (leads come out of each end instead of one end) but It will still fit. They only had a 1000uf capacitor so I combined that with a 220uF capacitor and wired them in parallel. Make sure you put them in with the correct polarity.

SOURCE: Did you ever get your Philips fixed?

that specific flashiing is the software in the computer, the television has inside

you need to go to the philips website and download an upgrade software repair it is free-- put it on a thumb drive without any other things on it---- the television ,must be on to install --- turn it on with the remote and then insert the thumb drive-- the television will run a scan--- then turn off television and wait a few minutes-- turn it back on with the switch on the side of the unit-----

the power problem is something else--- the power board sounds like is going bad--- a new one is around 300-400 and a rebult unit is around 100 --- you can find them on

this television is poorly built -- when you get the new board it is easy to install -- before ordering a new board -- check the fuses on the board-- there are two fuses -- one is 1amp and the other is 5amp -- both are slwo burn fuses

if you bought a new rca tv, the codes have changed. until the cable companies catch up, you will need to use the remote that came with our tv AND the remote that came with your comcast box. Or, you can buy a LEARNING UNIVERSAL remote. this is different than a regular universal remote.

I have a 37" Phillips LCD TV. it will not turn on and the light that used to show green (to signal the tv on) now blinks red. What does that mean?

how many times does it blink red. the will help determine whats wrong. Most lightly its going to give you 6 or 7 blinks whick points to the power supply this is sometimes a false indication to the ssb/signal board being bad. you coulb try the parts or have a tech come out and verify which is the problem.

Philips 32pfl5322d/37 went off and won't come back on


Sounds like you have a bad power supply board! This is not hard to do yourself, as long as you are somewhat handy! Take the case apart (back side), and look some bad caps (capacitors) on the power supply board. They will look bulged on thetop an may be a little leaky (brownish stain).

Then you can buy a new one at or ebay, you will need to use the brand and model number! Good luck, I hope this is helpful!!

No picture or sound just six red blinking lights

Use your warranty in a hurry before it expires. Your TV when into protection mode to prevent further damage. Most TVs have a 1 year warranty. Good Luck.

power board is bad if it doesnt power up -- the red flashing lights mean that you need to upgrade the software-- you can get a new software upgrade on the website for philips --- use a thumb drive to install it into the television
