    I have a very similar problem. The tv will intermitantly shutdown and blink the red LED 7 times. To reset the unit I unplug it and wait till the speakers make a POP. Plug it back in and, most of the time, it will come back on. Philips said either a SSB or PS issue. Does anyone know the cost of either board or where I could get one?

    Same problem here too - red light blinks 7 times. I have had mine for 7 yrs. and 2 months. Repair shop has 2 of the same model in for repair right now with the exact same problem! Cost ~ $550. Ridiculous, this sounds like a defect!!!!

This what to do measure from the logic board which is located under the small signal board and have the AV jacks connected to it. If the voltage is 3.1 or close the problem is with the power supply or a boar connected to the power supply. Unplug the set. Disconnect the Y main board first that will be on the left side of the set facing the back. Plug the set back in if the led is solid replace the Y main and the Y upper lower. If still blinking plug the Y main back in and unplug the X main which is on the right side facing the back. If the led is green replace the X main. If the led is still blinking replace the power supply.
But if the volts are 0 the problem is the SSB or the logic board. In that case take the (SSB) small signal board out the set and place 1 jumper on J8003 and another jumper J8004 of the left side of the power supply. Then place 1 jumper on CN2072 of the lower left part of the logic board. Plug the set back in if the set displays a white, blue ect screen replace the SSB. If not and on the logic board you don't have 1 solid blue led and 1 blinking led data is not flowing and change the logic board.

Go with SSB first cost $595.00 + S/H + core $250.00 the SSB requires special set up to the panel's ID codes a tech should do this if you attempt it your self you'll end up with no display or poor picture.

Philips 42PF5321D/37 Error Codes


replacing ssb for 4 blink error was correct as error is communication failure specific to micro processor on ssb. getting an alternate error after replacing ssb would suggest either wrong ssb or defective ssb. verify vendor number on ssb tuner on original and new ssb and if same reorder that board and if not order per original board

Measure the connector from the logic board to the power supply the second pin from the left it will say Vs_ On if the set has 3.1 volts the problem is the SSB or the logic board. On the logic board there should be a solid led and a flashing led that shown that data id flowing and the problem is the SSB. The SSB is easy to replace just remember what you tokk loose and from where. You probely will save money that way. If the set is in warranty or just out of warranty contact Philips 1-888-744-5477 and see what they can do first.

Error 7 is a power related problem. This is what u need to do.
Remove back cover.
Plug in power when tv goes into error protection, check power supply and see how many times the led flashes. Right below the flashing green led there is a list 1-13 of error codes and what they mean. Your problem will probably be an error 7or 8 VSET or VSCAN . Which ever error code it gives you VA VSET or VSCAN or whatever it indicates look at the cable connectors to the power supply unplug that connector and the TV will stay on. And there will be your problem.

Philips 42PF7320A blinks 3 times every time i hit the power button


The SSB is small self contained board that u connect your Antenna, and HDMI to. An error three is a communication error between the SSB and to Logic board ( located underneath the SSB on the back fo the plasma panel that is just below the power supply. U can check parts.com and see if u want to purchase a SSB for this TV. Is the 3blinking lights coming from the front of the TV. Also check the power supply and see how many times the green led blinks on the upper left of the power supply and let me know.

Panasonic Th37PE30 Viera plasma stopped working


here is a complete list of all codes for panasonic tv's rgeardless of model if its panasonic it is these codes

1 Blink SOS: This shutdown operation is usually caused by a lack of communication between the A and the D boards.
1 Blink SOS: This shutdown operation may be caused by the improper connection of a SS board connector to the panel.
2 Blinks SOS: Pin 87 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the 15V line. During normal operation, the transistors Q9053 and Q9054 output a high to pin 87. If the 15V line is missing or shorted, a low is provided to pin 87. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 2 times.
3 Blinks SOS: IC9807 is a 3.3V regulator located on the D board. Its output is monitored by IC9003. If the 3.3V is not present at pin 86, the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 3 times.
5 Blinks SOS: Pin 85 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the 5V line. During normal operation, the transistors Q9051 and Q9052 output a high to pin 85. If the 5V line is missing or shorted, a low is provided to pin 85. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 5 times.
6 Blinks SOS: Pin 90 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC board. During normal operation, the transistor Q6581 and IC6581 output a low to pin 90. If the SC board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 90. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 6
6 Blinks SOS: 6 blinks of the power LED may also be obtained from pin 3 of IC9003, the DRV_RESET input. The D board provides the 5V source needed to power the C boards. On the C2 board, the 5V is routed back to the D board via connector C20/C10, C11/D31 causing pin 3 of IC9003 to be high. If 5V is not routed back to the D board, pin 3 of IC9003 goes low. The set goes into shutdown mode and the power LED emits 6 blinks.
7 Blinks SOS: Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times.
8 Blinks SOS: Pin 91 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SS board. During normal operation, pin 8 of connector SS23 outputs a low to pin 91. If the SS board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 91. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 8 times.
10 Blinks SOS: The SUB5V and DT9V sources created on the A board are monitored by IC1100. If they are not present at pin 30 and 34, the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.
10 Blinks SOS: The F_STB_15V of the P board, as well as the derived SUB5V and DT9V sources are monitored on the A board for excessive current. If a short circuit is developed in one of the supplied lines, pin 114 of IC1100 receives a high. The SUB5V and DT9V lines are also monitored for excessive voltage. When an over-voltage condition is detected, a high is also output to pin 114 of IC1100. The DT9V is provided to a DC/DC converter to create the BT30V for the tuner. If the BT30V becomes excessive, a high is output to pin 114 of IC1100. A high at pin 114 of IC1100 causes the unit to shutdown and the power LED to blink 10 times.

Shutdown; red LED blinks 4x


The most likely reason for the no picture might be the back light is gone and needs to be replaced, now as for the LED light blinking on different intervals is because its diagnosing it self unfortunately the user manual does not have any information on this part only by contacting the Phillips customer support you might get a better idea, but check your back light first it may just be that. Also try to check your Manufacturer warranty repair.
