Take off the back panel, probably about 30 little screws, make sure to replace the allan key screws when transporting the tv, almost broke me and my wife's toes when we moved the tv and the stand slid out and fell just by our toes, amazed it did not smash. Then check out your capacitors, they are round and have 'X' or cross marks, if these are popped out by any amount, and have some kind of dark stuff oozing out, then they need to be replaced. You will need a soldering gun/iron, solder, and replacement capacitors, i had to do 5, in two different sizes or voltage, took me about 3 hours in total not mentioning the driving around i did first looking for the capacitors, but was worth it, tv works fine now and cost me about $20 for capacitors and solder.

Philips 42 wont turn on


I am having this same problem. I have "fixed" this problem twice by replacing 2 failed capacitors inside. The fix is pretty easy and the cost of the replacement parts is about $2.50. Unfortunately, the fix doesn't last. The first time, the TV worked again for about 6 months, but the 2nd time, when I replaced with higher grade capacitors, I only got another 2 weeks out of the TV. I think it's time to cut my losses and get a new set. Repair costs were estimated at $600. ...just not worth it.

Blinking red led light when I plug in the tv then it turns right


Phillips purchases the main circuit board from Samsung, and it has a problem with capacitors failing. The failed capacitors can be easily identified as the top will no longer be flat, but will have bulged up.
If you have a local TV repair shop they can help you.

Check the power board for capacitors with the tops bulged up. They are 3300uf 10v. There are either 2 or 4 of them depending on your set.

The Z sustain module blew it's transistors. It may have been initiated by the Y sustain board going bad. I always replace both at the same time so as not to waste $250. You will find a Y sus board will run you between $250 to $350 and a Z sus is a little cheaper. I wouldn't replace one without the other. Let me know if this helps.

Turn off the video mute if it has this setting. Try using a VCR tuner and connect the VCR to the TV on AV1 or AV2 inputs. THis fix is free until Feb. 09. After that, you will need a DTV converter box or pay for a cable/sat box.

Not a fix, but it got my tv on.
I removed the back and tried the power switch.
I located the relay that was clicking.
I have two blue relays in the middle of my power board.
I placed a hair dryer over the relay for a few minutes.
After four tries of the power switch and it stays on!!!!!
Heat keeps the relay from just clicking off.
I don't know why.
This will at least get the tv on though.
