Question about Philips 42PF7320 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
I have a 42 in Philips that is about two years old and the picture no longer works. When the unit is turned on there is no picture and you hear sound for about 3 seconds then it stops and the light on the front blinks 7 times. I have followed some of the directions here to troubleshoot the issue and have narrowed it down to a VSCAN issue. I have removed the back cover and when the power switches off the green light on the power supply blinks 3 times. The code on the PS board says that 3 = VSCAN. When I remove the wire that is labled VSCAN from the PS board and power the unit up the sound stays on but there is no picture. I do not want to take it to a repair shop as they have told me they charge $250 just to look at the problem. What is my next step? Do I need to replace the PS board? Do I need to replace some capasitors on the PS board? Is there a different board that I need to replace (VSCAN). Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
