Philips Plasma NO LIFE

Problem: A philips 42FD9954/17S Plasma tv set that has no picture. The set cannot be turned on by the remote or the power switch. The light at the power switch does not come on red or green. I have opened the back of the set and tested the fuses and they are good.

    I had the same problem (with 42FD9954/17S) that when turned on the unit, the green LED turned off and came back to red again some time later. I kept turning it on and once it went to a clicking relay sound and blinking green LED with it. It did that for a while and stayed turned on. I noticed that it is temperature sensitive. Colder the room is more often does it. Used a hair dryer and blown hot air into the unit at the left bottom grills. It helped and started to tun on quicker. Later it has deteriorated so bad that I took it a part and after several ice spraying test showed that on the middle big board (power board) there was an electrolyte condenser went bad. It is the one one which is at the middle, bottom center of the board near the fixing screw. There are two of them (cylindrical objects). The left one was the culprit. However when I fixed it, it turns on immediately but goes blinking red after that. Phillips say it is a static discharge problem. I might blown something when soldering the parts. I don't know what. Any ideas?

Does no picture imply that you have sound? Or it just turns on with no picture and no sound? Please clarify this info so that I can help you resolve you problem. It sounds like a audio/video mainboard issue. Just want to be sure.

Power light but no picture or sound


Hi!
My name is Chris.
I have this Phillips Wide Screen TV that didn't have or come with a remote, so I had to go out and buy a universal remote for it today from a BIG W Store. I'm having some technical difficulties & problems with switching and turning it on, but as I use the universal remote to turn on the TV, I'm having a bit of a slight problem with it turning it on, Ok, Yes, it works and Powers on, but there is nothing showing or giving me the indication that there is no picture or sound showing up on this Wide Screen Phillips TV, But there is a little red & green light at the bottome right hand corner that keeps on flashing red when ever I use the universal remote to switch the power on. Is there a possibility, that i can get some help on here, to help me out with any suggestions, is to why I'm not getting any picture or sound showing up on this TV with this universal remote ? Is there anyway that i can maybe get some help with this to help me out with solving my issue with the Phillips Wide Screen TV ?

This is because the power switch operated the socket that your TV is plugged into. Unplug it and plug it in another socket that is not operated by a switch. Appliances should not be plugged into a socket operated by a switch because of the inconsistency of power to the socket. Lights are about the only thing that should be plugged in.

My Philips plasma only shows half the screen. The other half is just blacked out.


This model has PiP (Picture In Picture), find the button on the remote or check manual, this mode is most likely turned on and is being shared with one of the AV channels, or try turning on a plugged in SCART device to see if this picture shows on the other half of screen.

My Philips 50pf9631d plasma tv turns on then red light blinks 7 times! Philips no help. Local electronics store wants $500 to fix! Set is only 3 yrs old! Please help.


Are you getting picture or sound at all? If not, you could have a very common power supply failure. If you get sound or picture, then you may have a faulty capacitor or resistor on one of the system boards

I need help tv plasma phillips


There is a firmware that can be updated via usb from philips. This fw was used to correct the tv powering on with no picture randomly (they called it a maintence session) but it was a problem. The tv would power on on its own and do this..


If that doesnt take care of your problem then the problem is with the main control board. or ssb
