SOURCE: blinking red lights

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsun. Know to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio conections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the location of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check a Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=493-1754-ND. Total cost was $7 with S/H.

SOURCE: Philips 50 Inch Plasma Model 50PF7320A/37 will not turn on

Commonly it's going to be a power supply related problem. The two boards that need to be looked at is the Main Power Supply Board or the power supply board for the screen. The one that powers the screen, some manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board.
If you have some electronic experience, you can sometimes find a Service Manual for the TV over the internet for less than $20. It will have the all resource material for repairing your TV model. It's just the matter of replacing the bad part on the circuit board.

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
If you have no TV menu either check for any swollen capacitors on the power supply.
If none are found measuring voltages will localize the defective board or boards the voltage test points are marked VA and VS on the panel and boards.
If disconnecting boards restores these voltages the suspected boards must be replaced .
Tech labor is about $250 plus parts.
Suspected boards
power supply
Y sus main & Y buffers  
Logic board
mainboard
panel
 
 
If I have helped you with your issue
If you have more questions you can still respond
I will reply asap
Thanks

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

No power to tv after unplugging and replugging


either the fuse is burnt out inside or the the problem is the power supply board. You can remove the back cover to see if the fuse is good or not.

I partly agree with imaliszewski the problem is Y buffers (upper & lower). There is 3 parts to the Y board (Y-main, Y-upper, and Y-lower). There was an issue with defective Y-buffers in a memo sent out by the Plasma manufacture. The problem could be that you just got a set of these defective buffers in your panel. Or as Imaliszewski stated a current problem. but if you replace the Y-buffers repace them as a set. If your TV goes out again after changing the buffers. The panel is causing the problem by drawing too much current. That was a Defect I found out why working in a Philips/Magnavox warranty repair facility.

I heard a loud pop sound and my 48 zenith plasma tv picture went black. Even the words "video 1" don't show up when selected. It's getting power; The green/red light is on. I've checked all the...


Does anything come on the screen? Input display box? 
If no:
Sounds like it could be a blow capacitor. Cheap part, but need someone with a little electronic know how repair to fix it.
