I have a 50" Phillips


Sounds like there is a couple bad caps in the power supply. Check the power supply to see if there is any bubbled caps. Replace with a higher voltage if necessary.

Our 52 inch Phillips Plasma tv is not working


open the back of the set and inspect the power supply board -- there should be two fuses on the board- they cost around 2 dollars at radio shack -- check all connections for wear or damage -- there are two boards in most televisions -- a power supply board and a audio / digital board -- one is probably board

Replacement of the 2 capacitor's that are damaged


I too have heard of the 2 capacitors that cause the 7 blink red led symptom. We had our phillips TV 2 years and then the problem. I took the back off our TV last weekend and sure enough on the main board was two capacitors that have bulging tops (not flat like they're supposed to be). All other caps on the board look fine. I have removed the 2 caps and ordered new ones from Digikey. They are 3300 microfarad 10V. Looking at all the other caps on the board - they are all a much higher voltage rating - some even as high as 450V. The 2 bulging caps are only 10V rated. Maybe thats why they are more susceptible to death. Anyway, my new caps should arrive today and I'll see tonight if they fix the TV.

My samsung plasma suddenly made clicking noises and tuned off


I wish to tell the world about the simple cheap fix for your plasma! . Please let me know if I helped. I have a 50" Plasma that deicded after a year it didn't want to turn on anymore. It just blinked red LED. Which made me see red! It took me a year to find this inexpesive fix I hope this information will be helpful to you.... These are spendy items and none of us were thinking that after a year (seems like a scam to me) the TV just won't turn on anymore.... Then they say your no longer covered under warranty or you are and they send you to some repair shop 1-2 hours away and always and I mean always tells you the part is on back order.

Lukster is right it is a power supply problem. However you don't need a new board nor do you need to pay someone a ridiculouse abount of money to fix this. I fixed mine for 40 cents.

You more than likey have bad capacitors.
Unplug the TV from power. Remove the back cover. (some models require a star srewdriver) You power supply board is right in the center. A bad cap is bulgded or raised. A good one is flat. caps have an X on the top of them. More than likely you will see a bulding or just straight raised edges on the X on the top of the caps. Cap 3300uf 10v is the ones you are looking for. Once you find them replace them with 3300uf 16v caps. If one cap is not raised replace it anyway. These caps need to be a higher voltage that why the tend to pop. 16V is plenty, don't go any higher in voltage than that.

The caps need to be soldered on. You have 2 options do it yourself or unplug all the wire harness from the board then unscrew the board take your power board (dont forget your new caps) down to a pc repair or tv repair and have them solder them on for you. It will take less than 10 minutes. I do recommend putting the board in an anti static bag. You can buy these caps at radio shack or buy them on ebay.

After you get it repaired replace your board plug all power supply wire harness back onto the board (I recommend numbering the wires as you remove them), replace the back panel cover. Plug her in and fire her up. and BAM it works. then turn it on and off a few times in complete amazement at how simple and inexspensive this was to do. Then get angry cause your repeated calls to tech support was wasted breath.

My 42 inch plasma wont turn back on after power cut?


Hi,
We purchased a phillips plasma 50" in july 06 and it cut on and off 5 or more times a day I called phillips customer service they told us it was due to the cable company they came out and changed the tv jack gave us a new box and tested the lines said everything was ok. The problem still kept happening got back to phillips and they sent us a flash drive to update the info in the tv. still kept happening told us it was due to tv being sensitive to power flutuations. well we are now 5mths out of warrenty and the power board blows up! phillips will not do anything to help the person I spoke with admitted we were given bad advice the bill was estimated at over $500 so if I were you if its still under warrenty make them send someone out to look at it, Reading up on phillips tv complaints this seems to be a common thing By the way phillips customer service sucks dont rely on them to help you much. good luck
