Question about Philips 42PF9631D 42 in. Plasma Television

TV turns off

When I am watching TV for a little while it turns off by itself. A red light will come on in the bottom right hand corner of the TV. If I unplug the set it will work again for a few minutes. Any suggestions?

    yes,

    i have been having the same problem. my tv keeps jumping into stand by mode. i don't really want to pay for a repair if it is a fixable problem.

    I have the same issue and called Best Buy and told them they said they would send a tech out but that if he does not see it then he will not try to fix it. I told the girl on the phone I would video tape it, because it will never happen when the guy is here.



    If anyone knows of what causes this issue or has documented proof this is a flaw please post back.

Sounds like a bad solder connection on power supply board. Remove the back, turn on the set,using the handle of a screwdriver tap the power supply board and see if it shuts down. The power board is the one attached to the power cord. If it does shut down, UNPLUG the set, remove the power supply, inspect the bottom of the board and look at all solder connections with a magnifing glass. Look for any dark rings around solder connections, and resolder with fluxed 60/40 solder. tonyfalcione@msn.com

Samsung tv #LN40B530P7F wont turn on,theres a little red light inlower right hand corner,so its gettin power,but it wont turn on


Are you using two remotes, the TV's and the cable box'? Is so, then you possibly may not have an understanding of how the cable box remote operates. Play around with it, or it could be something more serious with the TV, like the power switch button is defective.

TV just turned off while watching it - red power light flashing now and burning smell


The flashing red light means there is a problem that cannot be fixed on it's own. there is a good chance it is shot. You may have to take it in but most likeley it will cost close what replacing it would cost.

No picture can hear when i power off and on with no red light


If the problem is same with different input devices and you have ensured there are no loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable and sockets, the TV needs servicing.

The tv has power .the red light is on ,but when it turns on,the green light comes on but then it turns right back off ant the light goes back to red it has a round 1/2" button like plastic plug in...


Tod,
The little plastic button you are referring to is the IR receiver for the Remote. When the TV turns itself off, are there any flashing lights on the front or rear of the unit. Look through the vents in the rear for any flashing lights or try tuning the tv on in a dark room and see if any lights flash and reflect off of walls. If there are flashing lights tell me how many flashes and what color and I will try to look them up in the manual.

Dynex big screen tv stopped working won't come on with the remote of the botton. Only a little over a year old


The same exact thing just happened to me. I was watching tv and it just turned off by itself and now it wont turn back on. I've also only had mine a little over a year. The red light is on at the bottom left hand corner, but it wont turn on at all. Hopefully we can find an answer to what is going on!

My 26" Insignia LCD TV will not power on.. the little light on the bottom right corner will change from red to blue but the screen itself will not make any change.


The problem can be in the backlight inverter board or the power supply that supplys the power to the inverter board is bad. The indicator is on because the 5v standby power supply is still working at least.
