Question about Philips 42PF9966 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
The problem you have described indicates that there are faulty electrolytic caps on the y or z sustain boards.Often in cases of problems like this, the caps do look a bit cracked or bulged near the X at the top. If any of them don't look fishy then you should get a multimeter, set it to capacitance mode and check whether any of the read values that differ from the original ratings on the surface or "OL" which means over load. I have fixed a similar problem in my shop for the same model. The caps cost me around 10$. There were 6 of them that had gone bad on the Y-sus.
