Philips 42PF9631D 42 in. Plasma Television TV wont turn on..I get the initial green power light, but it quickly goes to a flashing red light (flashes a series of 4 times). Philips tech support is a joke....


Philip have alot power problems with their tv.Check power board for puff up parts like Capacitors,or rust in cracks or soldering.Changes parts or the whole power board.

I have a Phillips 42 inch Plasma. I tried


One of two issues/problems:
1) Main Power supply problem
2) High Voltage Power supply problem.
A Good TV Service Shop that works on Philips would be the first place I'd call. It will be much cheaper to bring the TV into the shop instead of having a tech come out to your location.
Possibly a $200 to 300 dollar repair.
