Question about Philips Televison & Video
I have a Philips lcd tv 42pfl5432d/37 with sound but no picture. The green power light stays on and is not flashing. The screen flashes half a second upon power on then stays off. I opened the tv but do not see a bad capacitors.
Based on what you clarified and my experience I'd bet the problem is in one of the inverters, most likely the main inverter.
Look at the board part number - it's usually imprinted on the board itself - and look on eBay or Google for it.
Another way to go about it is to type in the model number (usually without /37) followed by the word "inverter", e.g. "42pfl5432d inverter".
My search yielded result board number VIT70023.80 and from there you start searching for this on eBay...find a reputable seller (like me, except I don't think I have it) and buy it.
It might be the slave inverter, it might be the master, but from what you describe it's more likely the master.
It's possible to nail it down, but it will require multimeter and some extra time.
Hope that helps!
