Did you check the service manual troubleshooting guide yet. You can try disconnecting the power to the inverter board and see if it will stay on and have sound.

Since you said the the pictur tube is glowing, your EHT system is OK.
After selecting a channel if sound is alright the TV up to signal
detection is working OK.

The problem now could be in video amplifier circuits. Check the grid
voltages of the picture tube.
Or switch off TV, and check the resistance values of the resistors
connected to the picture tube pins. Replace the defective resistor.


Check after removing one end of the resitor as it will misguide you if in circuit.

Tv wont turn on and automatically shuts down


I'm having the same issues with my phillips flat panel. I downloaded the firmware update from phillips and that helped...but only once. I'm back to the same issue this morning. But you might try this download...it may work for you.

Periodic tv screen blackouts


The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box

Original problem ...


There are two additional Y Sustainer supporting Boards called the Upper and Lower Y Boards in the P50HDM that can also be replaced at the time of the Z and Y Replacement. There part numbers are: 6871QDH088A and 6871QDH089A. Although some techies prefer to replace them at the same time as the main Z & Y Boards you won't know if they are the problem unless you still have problems after the Z &Y are replaced at the same time. Since these are much cheaper than the Z & Y (about $50 each) that should take care of the blinking.

It sounds like you don't have the dreaded problem of busted panels otherwise you wouldn't have a picture at all. these boards are actually pretty cheap unlike the Z and Y which are a bit more expensive. It’s also popular to add two additional CPU fans to the unit for additional cooling. Apparently the POD (Pop of Death) has something to do with the main Z and Y overheating. To add additional CPU Fans, which are also pretty cheap, you’ll need a 3 Pin Y-Splitter (M-F) for the extra plugs to connect to the additional fans but be sure to purchase a super quiet fans since the additional fans will be running along with the two 5 inch super quiet fans that came with the unit.

Aquos LC37D40U Blinking light and won't turn on


The power light is an error code that tells me exactly what is wrong with the TV. Count how many times the POWER led flashes per second? (Dont worry about the OPC led)

1x per second (constant steady blink) = bad inverters/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board

If its 1x per second, try doing the factory initialization to get the TV back on to confirm a bad lamp/inverter.

Try doing the Factory Initialization (WARNING: THIS GIVES YOU ACCESS TO THE SERVICE MENU. DO NOT ADJUST ANYTHING IN THE SERVICE MENU OTHER THAN WHAT I PROVIDE YOU IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS. IF YOU DECIDED TO ADJUST ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT I PROVIDE YOU IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS, I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING WRONG HAPPENS TO YOUR TV.)

  1. unplug tv
  2. press and hold at the same time “Vol –“ and “input” button on the TV set.
  3. while holding those buttons, plug the tv back in
  4. the tv should turn on by itself, keep holding the buttons until the letter “K” appears. Then let go.
Once the TV turns on, take a look at the screen. Does it flicker then shut off? Or do you hear a buzzing noise from the right edge of the TV? If so, then you have bad inverters or lamps. Once youre done, unplug the tv to get it out of the service menu.

If it is 2x per second or 3x per second, then those boards are just bad and they need to be replaced. There isnt anything you can do right now to fix it.
