The problem is exactly what th message says: the tv can't detect a signal and shuts down to save energy - normal behavior .
First you must check that the correct source is selected in the tv menu. Then you must check the cables plugged in the tv. Finally you must check the tv by plugging another source in it. If even then no signal is detected then the problem is in the tuner or the AV switch in the mainboard - you will have to call a repairman to replace those

    Use the buttons on the case for switching between sources.

    Yes, you will be able to use the tivo remote but to select the correct code from all the other Philips codes the tv must be fully functional, Not knowing that the tv is operational would make it impossible to tell if the tv doesn't react to the commands because the code is wrong or the tv isn't working.

  • Azrael SRL Oct 15, 2010

    If you can select the sources with another remote then the control processor and the AV switch are good. Then the only thing left is the tuner - the part that tunes in to the channels - or the cable that plugs in to it.
    You must do another simple test: plug in another tv and try to find the channels using the same cable - if you can then the tuner from the Phillips is dead and will have to be replaced (call a repair guy for that, they are the only one that can get a replacement tuner), if you can't then the cable is defective (call the cable company or the guy who installed it for that).
    That line looks like a defect in the Plasma screen - without testing i can't know what caused it for sure so i can't tell you what is wrong. But it's usually the Y-sus board or the connector from it to the screen. You will have to call a repairman for that. Try to press on the upper part of the tv's frame, right above the line, that usually reseats the connector without having to take the tv apart.

When i connect my my hd cables on my philips 32fd9954 tv the sound will not work

It is likely you are connecting via the DVI or VGA connectors. By default, these do not carry audio. You will need to bring audio into the display through one of the other sets of connections, then manually select the input with the remote.

Can't find where to hook up tv coax.

As far as I can tell your TV is just a monitor. You would have to buy a separate tuner. I had the same problem with mine and found it was cheaper just to use an old VCR. I hooked up the coax wire up to the VCR and hooked the VCR to my TV with composite cables and changed my channel through the VCR. That will only work now if you're using cable because of the switch to digital. If you're using an antenna you will need a digital tuner.

How to find part and repair 32" philips tv light bulb

I see that your TV was manufactured in Feb. 2004 Probably the only place u will find parts maybe a damaged TV on ebay. Or check with a repair shop and see if they have any old plasma tvs laying around. I work in a remanufacturing facility and I see these tv's everygreat once in a while. I believe it has a mitubishi panel or hatachi panel in it one of the most common problems is the power supply. If I remember correctly on the power supply you should see several resistors (at the top left of board) burnt up along with a couple for FET's burnt also (the fet's are all in a row on the left side of the powersupply. You might try and changing these out if this is the problem. But if there is a problem with the Plasma panel I highly doubt u will find a replacement to match.

Phillips plasma

Five blinks is a severe hardware failure supplys not working. Viper is down. You have atleast a bad power supply board could have taken out your sustain boards. If you are good with a meter you can measure voltages and see if just your power supply is dead. If you have never handled a multimeter you will need a tech and a power supply is not cheap..Power supply is about a 600 dollar board.
