Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have a Philips 42pf9630a/37. The screen is pink, blue and red. It also has a black line coming from the left side of the screen that is about 3 inches wide and about 18 inches long. I spoke to a repair guy and he told me it was the module. He wants $600 dollars to reapair it. Want to repair myself, need instructions on how to do it, please help.

    Thanks! I will try both ebay and the repair guy to see what results I get.

    My tv was working fine until I hooked up a game console. As far as the color on the screen, it's the whole screen that has those colors in it. The tv turns on/off and the sound works fine but the picture doesn't come in good. Maybe it would be wise to give the headache to the repair guy since he has the experience on this.

Go to website Encompass Parts Distributors they have the Parts you need to Repair it yourself or Call 1-800-638-3328 But the only thing is do you know what module he was talking about? Encompass does list all Parts for your TV, with what you are saying I think you Have some Bad capacitors in the power supply circuit this would explain the Black line.Look for any capacitors that maybe bluged up on top if you see any like that they are Bad 1000uf 25v ,1000uf 16v .Let me do some more checking to see what would cause hori to cause Black line and affect color! Get Back to you ASAP!

    I was wondering How much is for so called Board and Labor Charge?Since you said you hooked up game console to it, which Video inputs did you use? and how many AV inputs do you have 3or 4 in other words how many devices can you connect to your TV like DVD,VCR, Satellite ect....I will do my best to help you to see what may have caused set to discolor with bad picture and which Moduel it would have damaged. Its now 10:10pm so everyone I know is asleep But I have a few Good Men who do in home servicing what they do is CK files on Make & Model of TVs under warranty, that way when they make service Calls they have correct Boards to Fix sets in the Home, So with any Luck I can find out what you will need to Fix your TV! Im sure this has happened before, You may have Bad video Board, either way if I cant solve your problem you havent lost anything! I just dont like to see people Pay thru the Nose for minor Parts & Repairs.

Hello: This model is known for it problems with the driver boards. The black line is due to a display driver board on the side where the black line begind. Since it is more then two inches wide, this indicates its not the PDP Module. (Screen)..but one of the screen buffer boards. The boards can be purchased from Andrews Electronics. Now as to the colors you mentioned is this on the entire screen or lines in the picture also? This may be caused by a Bad X-Substain Board.You may want to consider replacing what Phillips calls the Viper board assembly. This handles all digital upscaling and video circuirty. This is not an easy unit to service yourself, the reason I say this is because alot of parts need to be removed just to get to the driver board assembly and even the Viper Board assembly. There are a ton of screws involved in this model.

I did some digging. A lot of people are having this issue with the TV, but no one listed the part number. However, I did some searching on eBay with that model number and I got some components to come up. Here's what you have to do. You will have to go back to the repair guy and have him show you the card that is bad, or just have him give you the part number. Type that part number in eBay and you should get some cards to pop up. Here's what I searched.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Philips-42PF9630A-37-X-SUS-LJ41-02758A-LJ92-01199A-8042_W0QQitemZ360152936393QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item53dac9afc9

If you do not want to deal with eBay, You can contact Phillips directly at (866) 779-3946 and order the part number. Hopefully this has helped you out. Please feel free to comment if you have any other questions. Good Luck!

1/3 of screen on left is blacked out


Could be power supply but most likely sustain boards, which are very expensive to repair. Consider replacing with an LCD with warranty!

I have a Philips plasma 42 with black lines across the screen


I would first check if there is an available firmware upgrade for your model .Upgrade requires you to download firmware from philips website.Then transfer it to a memory stick .Then use a memory stick reader to plug into tv for firmware upgrade.Other wise the set would probably need repair .Possible a bad SSB board or another issue
