Question about Philips 42PF9630A 42 in. Plasma Television

My dead 42" plasma - power problem

Following some suggestions from you guys, I got brave and pulled the screws off of the back of the TV. I followed the AC wire to the input on the board. Right next to it was a fuse. I borrowed my friends Fluke multimeter and checked. I got no response. I checked another fuse to make sure and I got a beep, so I know the fuse is blown. It is a T8AH250V P - does anyone know where to find one?

By the way - YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

    I only have a Fluke CAT III Clamp Meter. When set to ohms I can check connectivity. I don't have settings for both. The screen on the fluke reads 1 when I turn it on, when I check the bad fuse, it simply stays at 1. When I put it on a good fuse in the TV, it reads .03

    I just did the same thing this weekend. My Plasma's been dead for a month. So I asked my brother in law, an electrical engineer, to help me. We did the same thing and tried 4 different stores to locate the fuse. No one seems to be selling them. If you locate one please let me know.

I went to Radio Shack and bought a 4 pack of 6.3amp 250v glass fuses (5x20)...stuck one in and it works like a charm.

Anyone know of any problem using a 6.3amp fuse instead of an 8amp one? I am thinking it just would blow out sooner...and I have 3 more I can go through until I find an 8amp fuse...am I crazy?

If when measuring the fuses, you should hear a beep if the fuse is good when the multimeter is selected to continuity. If the multimeter is selected to ohms you will see zeros on the display if the fuse is good and OL if the fuse is blown.
I would suggest to measure the fuses first and possible the voltages after determining the fuses are good.

Fry's has the replacement fuse, identical to the Littlefuse T8AH250VP, manufactured by NTE Electronics. Part # 74-5SC8A-B (ceramic, slow-blow 8A 250V). 5 per package for $4.99. I'm replacing the burnt fuse on the power supply board on my Philips 42" plasma, right next to where AC cord attaches to the board. I hope it works!

42PF7320A/37 went dead, no LEDs on, no normal clicking when you connect the power cord . Though reluctant to do so, I opened the case with torx drivers, verified 120 VAC was coming out of the AC line filter with multimeter. Pulled out the fuse off the main board adjacent to the ac input connector. continuity check on that failed, voilla. The fuse was marked T8AH250VP. Made by company called 'Littelfuse' but couldn't confirm if its 215 or 216 series or something else. The 'T' means its time delay fuse (slo-blo). The H means High break current, in other words, its ceramic. So Fry's had the 8A 250V slo blo ceramic fuse that was close to same size. Never could find out what the 'P' referred to, not even littlefuse's sites's fuse ratings description included that tidbit. Philips referred me to http://www.encompassparts.com/, which I considered calling but wanted my tv up quickly, and that it is. Bought an AV surge protector that I should have had in the first place. Good luck God Bless.

SOURCE: my dead 42" plasma - power problem

I have same issue with Samsung HP-S4253 Plasma. The fuse is a Littlefuse (manufacturer they do not sell), I have search and called over 20 places and the latest is Fuses Unlimited but it is discontinued and they do not stock but they can order. I will not be able to contact them until the holidays are over. There most likley is a minimum order. If there are other fuses you need write down part #'s so you can fill the minimum if required.

If there is anyone out there that can help with finding these hard to find fuses it would be appreciated.
There are most likey other Plasmas or TVs that use the same fuse just have to figure out witch ones they are.

With TV and cable box turned off, check all the wire connections on the back of TV and cable box by unplugging and plugging wires back in and unscrewing coax cables and screwing it back in. If the coax cables are a few years old, might be a good idea to replace, cause the ends tend to corrode.

Changing the LCD lamps


You may follow the below mentioned steps to replace the lamps :

1. Power off the LCD TV. Unplug the AC power cord from the television and the electrical socket or power strip.
2. Locate the plastic or rubber grommets or screw hole covers on the rear edges of the LCD TV. Use an awl or small flat head screwdriver remove the rubber pieces from the screw holes by gently inserting the tool into the hole and prying out the cap. Note that on a few LCD TVs, the grommets or screw hole covers may be on the front face of the unit.
3. Loosen and remove the screws in the holes from which you removed the plastic or rubber grommets. Set the screws aside and keep them together.
4. Remove the plastic shield that protects the input ports on the rear of the TV if the unit has one. To remove the shield, use the awl to pry the plastic tabs loose or remove the retaining screws with the screwdriver.
5.Use the flat head screwdriver or awl to separate the front and rear pieces of the monitor casing. Start on the lower edge of the casing and gently pry the two pieces apart. Work your way around the outer edge of the television and separate the tabs until you can pull the front face off the casing. Remove the front bezel piece from the television.
6. Locate the inverter board below the LCD screen on the TV. The inverter board is small circuit board with wire connector plugs on either side. Disconnect the plug on the right side of the inverter board that leads to the backlight lamp bulb.
7. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws on the edges of the LCD screen that attach it to the rear part of the TV casing. After you remove all of the screws that secure the LCD screen, place the screen face down on a soft towel.
8. Remove the screws that secure the back light lamp in its track. If the wire leading from the back light lamp to the inverter board uses clamps or ties to secure the cable, disconnect or remove them. Remove the backlight lamp from the TV casing.
9. Insert the new backlight lamp into the track and secure with the retaining screws you removed from the old bulb assembly. Run the wire through the clamps or ties as needed to position the wire plug next to the inverter board.
10. Realign the LCD screen with the screw holes in the rear part of the TV casing. Insert the retaining screws and tighten them. Connect the wire plug from the back light lamp to the inverter board.
11. Replace the front part of the TV casing and snap into place. Reinsert the retaining screws in the holes on the rear of the TV and tighten with the Phillips screwdriver. Replace the plastic or rubber grommets and push them into place securely.
12. Reconnect the AC power cord and plug it into the wall socket. Power on the TV and use normally.

Just installed a sky magic eye to my digital tv upstairs, works perfect. however I have now lost all my digital channels!!


Hi

If you have installed a sky magic eye, i am assuming you have taken a sky feed from the RF outlet of the back of the sky box to view sky in another room, if this is the case, this is an analogue feed which you would have to tune in manually to the second tv, this would suggest that you havent lost the digital signal you just have you second tv selected on analogue. On the assumption your system is connected like the following;

Sky box connections

Main aerial input
sky sat input
rf out to second tv

Reagrds

July 1, 2009- I need to replace my burn-out ac


Try website. - http://www.lcdpayless.com I placed my order on Thursday and went out of town for the 4th and I checked my mail today (Monday) and it was there. I plugged it in, the power came on and the tv works perfectly....plus the new cord doesn't have an annoying fan.

The cord is pricey at $117, but it beats buying a new tv. The company accepts returns minus a 20% restocking fee and shipping, so I figured worse case scenario I would only be out of $40+bucks if it didn't work and I had to send it back. Hope this helps!!!

I had this problem as well guys. Just found a fix thought i'd share.

I simply went into menu>setup>reset . This will perform a factory reset, and you shouldn't have that K or the volume problem anymore.

I tried all the fixes involving volume- input- nothing worked. I tried volume- ch- but that K never changed colours.

It all came down to a simple menu option reset.
