Hi again,

Did you try connecting the TV into a different power outlet?

    ok,now i cant tell you what exactly the 5 red flashes mean but i believe there is an internal fault.May be a power supply issue,which will require a physical presence of a tech.You can try replacing the fuse if you want to.But i strongly recommend you to contact philips about the 5 red flashes as only they can tell you the exact error.
    All i can say is to fix the 4 red flashes just upgrade the firmware.

    So Please CLICK HERE and try out a firmware upgrade first.I strongly believe that the 5 flashes will require a tech to fix it up.

    Goodluck..

The clicking is the power relay in the rear of the set. The reason for the repeated clicking is that a problem is being detected and the set is shutting down to prevent further damage. The set will cycle a number of times in an attempt to start up. The flash count indicates the circuit in which the problem has been detected. Were there any other symptoms before the set wouldn't turn on completely? If not, I'd start looking at the vertical or horizontal circuits. A fault in either one will cause hte symptoms you describe.

Keep us posted.

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

We have a Philips 4 BDS4231R/00 and it does not start. We can here the relay sound and if we turn it on and off say 7 - 10 times it works fine. Could anybody tell me how this can be fixed. Please


Hey John, I am experiencing a very similar problem. If I unplug the TV when it is on (green light) and plug it back in. It begins green, and clicks to red. I immediately turn the TV back on with the remote. Most of the time it seems to struggle for several seconds, sometimes with a little scratchy audio popping in and out. It will then go from green to red on the TV and if I try to turn it back on it will go green for a few seconds and back to red but without any click coming from the TV. No matter how many times I try after that, no TV. If, on the other hand, I unplug while green, plug it back in and with the remote turn it back on after it has come up green and then clicked to red, it will come on. It might take thee or five times but at least it comes on... If you hear of a real solution, please let me know (bennettkw@hotmail.com) in the meantime, best of luck.

Philips 42PF7320A/37 blinking red light


hello, amigo if the all the caps are godd then you have to replace the power supply board. don't try to fix it this is not an easy task. you are looking at almost $200.00 with tax an shipping. just go to google and type your tv model # and ask for the power supply board or just look for the part# on the board itself. good luck

Philips 42PF7320A blinks 3 times every time i hit the power button


The SSB is small self contained board that u connect your Antenna, and HDMI to. An error three is a communication error between the SSB and to Logic board ( located underneath the SSB on the back fo the plasma panel that is just below the power supply. U can check parts.com and see if u want to purchase a SSB for this TV. Is the 3blinking lights coming from the front of the TV. Also check the power supply and see how many times the green led blinks on the upper left of the power supply and let me know.
