Question about Philips 37PF7320A 37 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Blinking red lights

When I turn on my 37PF7320A, the green ligh comes on but immediately turns into a one red blinking light followed by four consecutive red blinking lights. I do not know if it is the power supply or other component. If it is the power supply, is there a place where I can find the schematics and instructions on how to change the power supply? My set is out of warranty and the local repair shop wants $650 which is way to much money. Thank you in advance for any assistance yo may provide,

    Thank you very much for your help. Would you happen to know the power supply part number and a reliable source for purchasing it? After this fiasco, I am not sure I'll ever buy another Philips product again.



    Thanks once again for your help.

Call the manufacture of the TV set to find out who their authorized service is in your area.

These sets are expensive to service. They are serviced by mainly board replacement. There is very little support for component level service.

The boards use high density SMD technology, and is all uPC controled using firmware.

As for your fault, you would have to determine if the power supply is in the protect mode because of a defect on another board, or if the fault is the power supply only. This is usualy done by doing board swapping to find out which boards are defective.

Some of the manufactures will sell the service manuals for their flat panel sets. Not all the schematics will always be complete. The information is mainly for how to replace the boards, and do the factory level calibrations if necessary. You will need the proper calibration and diagnostic tools to do the tests and adjustments as indicated by the service manual.

    The only reliable parts support is Philips or one of their authorized parts distributors. They should be able to sell the service manual and circuit boards. Your set is mostly serviced at the board exchange level. There is very little component level service supported for these sets.



    I do not have the service manual for this set, and therefore I cannot tell you the part number, or give any detailed service advice for the particular model. I can give you information genericaly.



    I would not advise changing the the power supply yourself. It is very possible that there is a fault on another board that is causing the power supply fault in the first place. You may change the supply and still not have the total problem fixed. I have had many instances where there were faults on a board that also caused damage on other boards.



    The authorized service center should have access to a full set of boards to use for testing during the diagnistics procedure. This is providing that the model is not obsolete and the parts are still available.



    It can be a very expensive ordeal to try to service a set yourself, unless you have the setup for proper diagnostics, calibration, training, and service information. You may end up buying a number of boards and still not have the set properly fixed, and also require adjustments that you don't have the setup to perform.

Tv will not come on. Red light blinking on bottom left front. Red light blinks 7 times


I have the model Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on and MOST articles on the Internet say it's the Capacitors capictors capictors..I checked all of them. My tv just blinked red lights, had the clicking sound at first power on, but then goes black. No sound. No picture. Nothing. Just blinking red lights.

MINE WAS RESISTOR no. 3318 , a 100 OHM RESISTOR ON POWER SUPPLY BOARD.

I BOUGHT REPLACEMENT FOR .99 CENTS SOLDER IT, AND EVERYTHING WORKED!!!

THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.

JUST A SUGGESTION..
1. CHECK FOR BULGING CAPACITORS (90 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM)
2. THEN CHECK FOR RESISTORS WITH MULTIMETER ( FALLS INTO THE OTHER 10 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM.)

TELL ME IF THAT HELPS..normanw1@yahoo.comj

When you turn the TV on, does it attempt to come on and then off? Does the light go green when you attempt to power up and then goes red?

That blinking led is an error code for the audio standby board in the set. It should not go out this soon and yes it should last longer.

TV will not turn on. I get a green light and 6 blinking red lights.


I had the same problem. Red light flashing 6 times over and over. Yes, it turned out to be the power supply board. Cost me $250 to have it repaired! I am very disappointed in Philips quality.

Philips 37PF7320A 37 will not turn on


moswt of these i have come accross is either an SSB(small signal board) or a logic board. in rear cases it even requires the replacement of the panel unfortunety ther are a number of test that need to be done on the unit to figure which one it is and i dont recomend you try them yourself.
