Question about Philips 42PF9966 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Hi My Phillips 42PF9966 42" plasma works great for about half an hour, and then small black and white lines appear on the screen. It starts off with a few them and then gradually takes over the entire screen as if i have lost reception on a tv, and then eventually goes black. Is it overheating? what can be the problem?

Image corruption in the buffer of the image processor, it's failing. Yes, it could be caused by overheating, but my guess is that it's the processor itself who is faulty, i've had several units of this type on my hands with the exact same defective part.
You must take the tv to an authorised repair shop, finding parts for it elsewhere is practically impossible.

    Thanks a lot.
    when you say authorized repair shop do you mean authorized "phillips" repair shop?
    also if i do end up having to replace the processor, how much would that set me back?
    Thanks

    Yes, a Phillips authorised shop, otherwise they will charge you more for the board, and it's already pretty expensive - around $250.

Our lcd phillips tv screen turns completely white after about an hour of use


The TV, most probably, the display circuit or the display itself has developed dry solder/components leaking and the TV needs attention by a qualified service technician.

Vertical white line down centre of Soniq PT42SH plasma TV.


One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

Screen lower half goes black/blank


The lower "Y Buffer" board is defective. Best repaired by a technician, or contact Phillips support for the part if you think you are able to replace a small circuit board on your own.

We have samsung 50 inch plasma tv, we have only half a screen


I have a Phillips 50 inch Plasma. About two months out of warranty the top half of the screen would go black. Sometimes when we tapped on the back behind the upper right hand corner the picture would return. I did some research online and found that there is a Main Y sustain board (much like a mother board in a computer) and connected to that board is a upper Y Buffer board and a Lower Y buffer board. According to my research these boards seem to be the source of the problem. I am assuming that the upper buffer controls the top half of my screen and the lower controls the bottom. I removed the back of my TV (about 50 small screws) and searched for these parts by part number. Surprisingly all of the parts in my Phillips are made by Samsung. I found the parts on ebay at shopjimmy.com. I decided to try replacing the upper Y buffer first. I ordered it from shopjimmy for about 100.00. When I received the part I started to remove my upper Y buffer and realized that the new part was slightly different. The part number was the same but the REV. number was slightly different. The new part was missing a small white connector that connects the upper buffer to the lower buffer. I sent it back for an exchange for the right part with no problem. Ok so here is the interesting piece of this little adventure. When I started to remove my upper Y buffer I removed the screws and started to pull on it to loosen it. When I noticed that I had the wrong part I pushed it back into place and put the screws back . My TV has worked perfectly since I did that, with my original part. It has only been about two months, but if you are in the same situation it might be worth a try.

White line


There are individual drivers for each line of plasma cells in the display (horz. & vert.), but they usually are an integral part of the display module that can only be repaired by the manufacturer. A new 42" HD-ready set with more features can be bought for 50-75% of what was likely paid for this one. The cheapest thing to do is learn to live with it. (That's what I'd do until the set got worse or the prices got even lower.)
