Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

TV wont come on

I have a Philips 50 inch Plasma TV. Model # 50PF7220A/37. The TV has a difficult time coming on. A red LED light comes on and flashes 6 times, followed by a another 3 rapid flashes, making it a total of 9 flashes per sequence. If I unplug the TV and try it again, it most likely does the same thing all over again as it usually takes about 5-6 times to to actually get the TV to come on. Whats does the error code indicate and how much will it cost to fix it?

I just fixed my 50pf7220a phillips last nite....i took the back off and found two bulged capacitors on the power supply board...i tried un soldering them in order to repleace them but could not get them hot enough to melt the i called this number (812) 867-7583 to get a new power supply......tell them the model number of the tv and they have the power supplies in stock mine was 129.00...the power supply is the large circuit board near the center of the tv.....its easly to replace....lay the tv screen down on the floor remove the large back ....about 70 screws....look for the slighty bulged capacitors...on the power supply board.....label all of the connectors to the power supply board and make a map of where they go .... remove the 8 screws that hold the power supply board in place.....get the new board and rehook....making sure that all connectors are tight.... please use two people to move this tv its top heavy....good luck if you have questions please post here and i will try to answer.....I am not a tv repairman but just a concerned consumer.....i understand that capacitors will go out once they reach 2000 hours.....

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.
