Philips 42PF9945 on/off switch problems

My 42PF9945 Plasma tv will not turn on. The red light comes on then it clicks off again, it then clicks back on for a few seconds, this just continues with no operation available. Is the an easy remedy? It is about four years old.

    I paid £2800 for this when it first came out so am gutted to see it fail so quickly.

Hi huttleywoof,

I've had the same problem 1 week ago. Bought new wirewound ceramic resistors (5w 6.8 ohms) and replaced the old ones.... It helped to majority of people who had the same problem, but mine has now some other issues with appearing diffrent colors on the screen which are not supposed to be there :) Like all goes blask with few red pixels or green :-) Having fun now and can;t find service manuals for this TV :(

I have a philips 43'' flat screen tv model number 42PF9945/12. When i switched it on the standby light came on and a clicking noise can be heard but the tv refuses to come off standby. how can i fix this?


Hello, I came across several times in this type of malfunction, stems from primary circuit of the power supply unit. I solved it by replacing the 5W ceramic resistor. In another case I came across electrolytic capacitors that i had to replace in the same circle. I hope it was helpful!

Philips 50 Inch Plasma Model 50PF7320A/37 will not turn on


Commonly it's going to be a power supply related problem. The two boards that need to be looked at is the Main Power Supply Board or the power supply board for the screen. The one that powers the screen, some manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board.
If you have some electronic experience, you can sometimes find a Service Manual for the TV over the internet for less than $20. It will have the all resource material for repairing your TV model. It's just the matter of replacing the bad part on the circuit board.

Philips 42PF9956/37 Plasma TV - Looking for y sustain board


it isnt the Y-SUS board, it is the Power supply, iv fixed this exact problem twice in the last month, try turning the tv on, and when it turns green, unplug it real fast, while light is still green, after 15 seconds plug it back in, then hit the power button, if it dont come on, hit the power button again, this time, as soon as it turns off, hit the power button again to turn back on, sometimes you can trick the tv and it will turn on, at least i was able to do it, and once it comes on, it should work fine, untill you turn it off again.

Trying to connect laptop to plasma tv model number 42PF9945. keeps displaying picture format not supported. using vga to vga on tv.


Hi,

To my knowledge your Philips 42PF9945 is capable of a maximum of 852 x 480screen resolution at 50Hz. It is TV standard but pretty low for PC work, that being the case, perhaps what is required is for you to lower the Screen Resolution as well as the Screen refresh Rate of the laptop. They may be found in the display properties (Control Panel) or right click on any clear area of your desktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Philips Plasma NO LIFE


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?
