How do you find the power board for the Plasma TV Phillip Model Number 42PFP5332D/37

Carefully remove the back of the TV. If you have a grounding strap, wear it. If not, always keep one hand on the TV and use the other hand when ''rooting around'' back there to prevent shock damage. The power supply will be large, and very heavy. Here is a link to what it could look like - this link is a list of all possible power supplies in your model along with photos.

Once you find the power supply, locate a part number on a sticker or the board itself and match that up to one of the power supplies from the link. Leave the power supply inside the TV until you have the replacement in your hot little hands, so you can remember how it went in etc.

I have a 42 inch phillips 42PFP5332D/37 plasma and it won't turn on...this problem has happened before and i paid $350 to get it fixed and it was a can i tell?


if last time it blew a fuse and this time it's not powering up.

something tells me it's the main Chopper FET in the SMPS

these sometimes become leaky because of noisy power...if your on the same powerline as an industrial area you can get very bad power transients and spikes that just love to blow sensitive stuff like Switch Mode Power Supplys apart!

sorry gonna have to pay the big bucks to get it fixed :-(!
but next time around use a power protector.
hope this helps,ben

Where is the power supply on model #42pfp5332d/37?


You can obtain service documents for this TV from

I do not have the service manual for this Plasma TV myself, but it is not difficult to locate the power supply inside the TV, follow the power cord, when it goes into a board, you know that is the board, most likely has high voltage components 400V and similar, you can't miss it.

Don't touch what you don't need to touch, you might shock yourself or in worst case, injure yourself or get killed.

NEVER OPEN A UNIT WHILE ITS PLUGGED IN; UNPLUG AND LET THE SET SIT FOR AT LEAST A HOUR. and even then, the components - capacitors may hold even deadly voltages.

My philips 42PFP5332D/37 keeps making a clicking sound, it wont turn on, and like most other post i have read, the blue power light stays on, but nothing just keeps clicking, its been doing this...

I had the same problem and it was the power supply board,but I replaced it myself and only spent about $140.00 for the part and 2 day shipping . It was easy just pull the back cover off and there are about 8 small screws that hold it on and like 6 connectors that's it. Also was the place for parts on these T.V.'s.

Can't turn on from Stanby mode

I would assume the power board has a problem. A tech could possibly repair it without replacing the whole board.
