Question about Philips 42PF7320A 42 in. Plasma HDTV
My wife was watching tv today and the screen started flashing colored blobs. No discernible picture was coming through. Can't open menus. After 10 seconds TV goes blank. Green front panel light goes off. Red panel light starts blinking (7 times...pause...7 times...). Have to unplug TV to get power fully off. Can't get picture back up. Audio was fine, but seems to be gone now as well...
I have the model Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on and MOST articles on the Internet say it's the Capacitors capictors capictors..I checked all of them. My tv just blinked red lights, had the clicking sound at first power on, but then goes black. No sound. No picture. Nothing. Just blinking red lights.
MINE WAS RESISTOR no. 3318 , a 100 OHM RESISTOR ON POWER SUPPLY BOARD.
I BOUGHT REPLACEMENT FOR .99 CENTS SOLDER IT, AND EVERYTHING WORKED!!!
THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.
JUST A SUGGESTION..
1. CHECK FOR BULGING CAPACITORS (90 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM)
2. THEN CHECK FOR RESISTORS WITH MULTIMETER ( FALLS INTO THE OTHER 10 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM.)
TELL ME IF THAT HELPS..email@example.com

The LED blinking 7 times is a code to tell the service tech what is wrong with the TV. From what I've read at other sites it sounds like there;s a good posibility that it is a power supply gone bad.
You probably should call a TV repair shop for assisitance.
