Don't know what you mean by picture here ( cant see it) but if capacitors look swelled ie domed , swelled in any way distorted , replace them, look out value , say 100uf , voltage , say 100v, and running temprature , say 105 c.
replace with exact part and make sure of polarity, the capacitor has a stripe on one side for negative connection

hope this helps
this job is not for a novice though

In the Samsung power supply on the Philips TV, this part is known to fail and needs to be serviced or replaced. If you can do simple soldering work, you can replace these for less than $20 (for parts and shipping).

Tv worked last night. This morning, no picture, no sound but ambilight works as normal...any clue??


this could be caused by vented capacitors in power supply..........look for domed tops on the electrolytics(small can shaped devices)on power supply board. These are bad and need replacing. 1000uf 10v.
Replace with high-temp(105 degrees C) electrolytic cap.
I use 25v or greater. Good success........meder'sTV

My 50 inch Philips ambilight plasma t.v. won't start, led light flashes red several times, used to unplug on and off to get it started, but it just won't work anymore.


Most likely the power supply board need to be look at plus the Main X and Y boards. The thing I would look for is bad capacitors on the board. Most times a bad cap would be swollen and deformed. Should stick out like a sore thumb. Radio Shack or an electronic supply store would carry replacement parts.


The best thing that would help you out is a Service Manual. A Service Manual will have the red light error code, schematics, and part lists for the TV. You can normally find it over the internet for less than $15.

Having problems turning on 2 year old Phillips


Philips TVs tend to have issues with bad capacitors in their power supplies. Failing capacitors tend to have slightly different ESR (equivalent series resistance) values when they have been left off, versus after they are warmed up and charged up. Either a new power supply board or replacement of the faulty capacitors will fix the problem.

Phillips ambilight 50 in red light problem


I had this problem on a 42" Philips Ambilight. After reading in another forum, opened up the back, and found 2 leaking capacitors on the center circuit board (main power supply pc board) toward the bottom. Tops of the capacitors were bludged out (10v 3300uF) and leaking electrolytes. Unsoldered the old ones myself, went to Radio Shack. They were out, so order 12 on ebay for $6.63 including shipping. Resoldered and works fine. Can't do it yourself? Take the board out (just unhook the cables & unscrew it ), and take it to a computer shop or tv repair or someone who knows how to solder, and have them change them. Piece of cake!
