Philips 42pfl3603d f7 does not turn on after a power interruption

I would suspect a bad capacitor on the power board. They dont always show any outward sign of being bad. The only way to test is with a ESR meter . I would reccomend replaceing the caps on the power board just to rule that out if you dont have access to test with a ESR meter. You have to keep the uf rating exact on the replacements but the voltages can be higher but not lower than the caps your replacing.

Please check your power circuit capacitors for defective. Replace with new one if found it damaged.

The tv shut down and when i try to power back on i only get a flashing red light with no picture or sound. i checked the capacitors and they look OK as far as i can tell. what is my next option?

Replaced the tv main Tuner signal board it is shorted and dead.Tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish tv Tuner signal board for the replacement.50/50 chances ur tv power supply board it is could be dead too.Power board capacitors components parts are not dead doesn't mean the tv power supply board it is good,could be those other components parts are dead too.U just don't have the know how and trouble shooting to find out how that all.

The reset light is blinking continuously. Unplug the TV for 10 minutes, didn't fix problem. Power button at front of TV cannot turn TV on/off - it's frozen. At this point, the remote control doesn't...

My first move would be to inspect the power supply board for bad capacitors. look for a bulged or skinned capacitor. Even if these capacitors look good, they may be failing. You will need an ESR meter to check for current. You will need an ESR meter for this. Then you will need to check the Mfs with another type of capacitor checker. These two types of capacitor checkers will be a necessity to find these failing caps. If the caps and voltages check out fine in the power supply, you will of course need to inspect and check the capacitors in the signal board. Definitely, there are bad capacitors in one or both boards. I have not repaired this particular model, but the symptoms you describe, tell where to look. Thanks for asking and show all hand of support!

No power ,dead, fuse good,polaroid tdx 03211c,

Is it about 2 years old? If you checked the fuse I presume you removed the back cover. A lot of these sets have problems with filter caps on the power board---easy to tell---follow the power cord to the power supply board----you will see a number of round parts with plastic on them--most are marked on the side plus and minus--and will have markings like 470 @ 16v; a 470 mfd at 16 volts, look carefully at the silver top of all of them-----it should be perfectly flat with two or three creases in it---IF YOU FIND ONE OR SEVERAL WHERE THE TOP LOOKS BULGED UP----you found your trouble---all the damaged caps(these sets vary from having 2 or 3 to 7 or more) need to be replaced with caps of the same value but WITH A HIGHER WORKING VOLTAGE--REPLACE 16 volt cap with 25 volt cap etc. If you find this is your trouble the parts should be less then 20 dollars. The reason this happens so often is many of the companies us the least expensive caps they can get---saves them money but most of these sets I have seen with this problem fail before 3 years.

if you need help or direct advice :

I do this here for free so if this has helped you at all give me a vote here.

TV Sucks - Hisense TL2020

Your problem involves 4 electrolytics on the power supply board. There are (3) 1000 mfd @25 volts and (1)220 mfd @16 volts. The power supply board is situated in the middle of the set slightly off to the right. It is held in with 4 screws and has 2 small harnesses on it. The 3 1000 mfd in the set that I was repairing were all swollen at the top and when I ran them on an esr meter sure enough they were opened. The 220 actually tested ok but was a little swollen at the bottem so I changed it anyway. After replacing all caps, normal operation was restored. Thanks, Jack from Staten Island
