Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television
42" philips plasma blue light is on but just clicks. tv sat for three months then i tried it again and it worked for 1 week. Last night i went to bed and shut the power on tv off and woke up this morning to tv clicking and blueclight was on
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.
