Question about Philips 42PF9630A 42 in. Plasma Television

Philips 42PF9630A Fault codes

I purchased this model at auction for $525. Supposedly new, but open. Need to know if i should scrap it or repair.

Hung on wall, noticed the speakers kept popping. Figured a way around it would be to hook up to an amp for external sound. So i opened it up and disconnected the wires from the speakers. Kicked a fault code so i reconnected the speakers. Now when u power on hear the amps kick in, but then kick off and gives me a 11 on the TS board.

Also have had a problem with the tuner. When in Cable skips the majority of the channels, and the ones that do come in are black and white with little or no sound. When in Antenna i get about 8 channels but perfectly.

Worth the money to fix or not... Read about the speaker wires getting smashed so am going to try that today but in the mean time any help would be appreciated.

Yea this model kinda sucks with ambilights ( one thing they wont tell it has a problem ambilights catching on fire !! no lie, there is a factory recall and modification). anyways back to question the popping noise. If u have a multimeter or can borrow one check the Ohms of the speakers they should read around 8 Ohms. But your best bet is to Change both speakers if you can find some with the same rating it will be fine. And also change the Audio Amp . On the board the the speakers plug into the big IC think its 7200 i think. Well its the biggest IC on this board. And for the Channels skipping u have a bad tuner.

I HAVE A PHILLIPS 42'' PLASMA 42PF9630A-37


The only thing I can suggest outside of taking the television to get repaired is a hail-mary firmware update. To be honest, the firmware update process is fairly complicated and lengthy. You can download the firmware and find instructions for it here.

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/cpindex.pl?ctn=42PF9630A/37&scy=US&slg=AEN

Look on the right hand side for firmware information.

This TV is likely outside of its 1 year manufacturer's warranty so you would have to pay any and all repairs. Before deciding to do a repair you might try calling Philips. For a while they were offering a service to customers like yourself with out of warranty units. They would offer to sell you a more up to date model at a discount. I'm not sure they still do this but its worth a shot.

Hope that helps!

You should just be able to get a AC cord off of a computer as they use the same type or even purchase one from Radio Shack.

I have a Philips plasma 42 with black lines across the screen


I would first check if there is an available firmware upgrade for your model .Upgrade requires you to download firmware from philips website.Then transfer it to a memory stick .Then use a memory stick reader to plug into tv for firmware upgrade.Other wise the set would probably need repair .Possible a bad SSB board or another issue
