Question about Televison & Video
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'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 :(

Tips for a great answer:
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!
