Wont come on


Hi
A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

Philips 42 42pf5520d faulty


Hi, the power supply board has a little board towards the connectors. This board has an led and it will blink if there is an error, check how many blinks there are and then check on the on the power PCB next to this little board you will see the error explanation. Also check capacitors on the power board next to the control board connector, replace any bulging ones. I hope this helps.

42" philips plasma, black screen and flashing red light


This fix was posted on similar problem, worthy of repeating: Replaced 3300mf 10V capacitors at PS. Both had bulged slightly. Upsized to 25V as the previous solution poster had suggested 16V but I could not locate 16V so used 25V and TV is back to normal!

Screen lower half goes black/blank


The lower "Y Buffer" board is defective. Best repaired by a technician, or contact Phillips support for the part if you think you are able to replace a small circuit board on your own.
