Question about Philips 42FD9954 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Phillips plasma i turn it on the green led lights up then a red led starts flashing no picture
Could be Bad caps on PSB causing the set to go into protection. If you are out of Warranty and want to try and DIY. You can email me. [email protected] I'll give you some instruction and some pics of what to look for. If your'e set was scambling the top/bottom half it may be YSUS and the buffers Upper and lower that work in unison with it, or could be SSB. Can try the easy one first. It works about 90% of the time and cost a few bucks and some soldering. SSB replacing consist of just plug new one in. The board itself doesn't cost all that much. If you have to replace the YSUS and YB upper and lower its about 200.00
Try to help you while I search for solutioin to my probelm. I am becoming very familair with the insides of these sets and the bad boards that come with them. LOL

The most aggravating part of this dilema of the flashing red light, is that we all seem to have the same problem less than 2 years after its production. It smells like defect in the workmanship. I cannot believe I how much the repairs are.

I have the 42pf9956/37. Same thing.
I took off the back cover and tried the power and found the relay that was clicking. I have two blue relays in the middle of the board.
I took a haid dryer and placed it over the relays.
After a minute I tried the power and after 4 times it stayed on.
Not sure why, but it is free.
I won't turn it back off soon though.

I had a technician come out and look at the problem and it was the SSB panel that went out. It costs about $600 to get it fixed. So my advice to everyone is to not get a plasma TV. Go for an LCD. They are a lot better and have less problems. Plasmas ****!!

Are the video connection correct and is there VIDEO coming down the wire? With no video in (or TV signal if you using an internal tuner) you won't see anything. This COULD explain it being on but dark.
