Question about Philips 50PF9630A 50 in. Plasma Television
I have a Philips 50PF9630A/37 plasma. The front led turns green and clicks twice like it is going to power up, but does not. It flashes red 6 times slow, followed by 3 fast red, then repeats this sequence until it self powers off. It has a high pitched noise coming from the back until I unplug it. I replaced 2 blown capacitors, replaced the power cord, tried the blow dryer on the capacitors suggestion. Nothing helps.

Quick test of the plasma screen itself:
1) Turn on the TV
2) Try to bring up an on screen setup menu using the remote or buttons on the tv.
3) Does the menu appear? If so, the screen itself is ok.
If it doesn't come up you make have an issue with the screen itself. I am not sure it would be possible to set contrast and brightness settings such that the picture would completely disappear, but I suspect you should be seeing something on the screen just from having turned it on.
We also need to know more about what you have connected to the television. HD televisions typically have several inputs on them including HDMI, digital cable, VGA and component. Let's say for example you have PS3 connected via HDMI. You can tell the PS3 to send audio across the HDMI cable as well as video. You also have the option of running separate connections for your audio signal. It is the existence of these options that make it necessary to understand where and how you have things connected, very specifically.

hello, amigo if the all the caps are godd then you have to replace the power supply board. don't try to fix it this is not an easy task. you are looking at almost $200.00 with tax an shipping. just go to google and type your tv model # and ask for the power supply board or just look for the part# on the board itself. good luck
