When installing the software turn the set off plug in the USB and then turn the set back on. The software should install it's self. When finished just unplug the USB. If the issue is still there then yes replace the SSB.

There is a firmware that can be updated via usb from philips. This fw was used to correct the tv powering on with no picture randomly (they called it a maintence session) but it was a problem. The tv would power on on its own and do this..


If that doesnt take care of your problem then the problem is with the main control board. or ssb

Power light but no picture or sound


Hi!
My name is Chris.
I have this Phillips Wide Screen TV that didn't have or come with a remote, so I had to go out and buy a universal remote for it today from a BIG W Store. I'm having some technical difficulties & problems with switching and turning it on, but as I use the universal remote to turn on the TV, I'm having a bit of a slight problem with it turning it on, Ok, Yes, it works and Powers on, but there is nothing showing or giving me the indication that there is no picture or sound showing up on this Wide Screen Phillips TV, But there is a little red & green light at the bottome right hand corner that keeps on flashing red when ever I use the universal remote to switch the power on. Is there a possibility, that i can get some help on here, to help me out with any suggestions, is to why I'm not getting any picture or sound showing up on this TV with this universal remote ? Is there anyway that i can maybe get some help with this to help me out with solving my issue with the Phillips Wide Screen TV ?

Turning on my phillips tv the power button is blinking red


Plasma? Your power supply has bad capacitors. 3300uf most likely. This is a common problem on some Philips plasma TVs. Power board is located top center of the TV with the rear access panel removed. look toward the lower left portion of the board. If you notice any capacitors (they look like little plastic wrapped cans) with swollen tops or leaking dark fluid from the top of them, replace them. Myself, I always step up the voltage rating... ex: 3300uf, 10v -> 3300uf, 16v.

I need help tv plasma phillips


Hello gruponapa,

This problem is linked to a power supply issue. The SSB is part of the power supply chain and will cause system failure if the board is defective. I have seen to many of these type of modular power supply boards fail. The shutdown circuit is detecting excessive voltage, and in the process of turning off the set it may have blown something else. I am begining to suspect a design flaw, which happens from time to time. I would suggest having a qualified TV repair person take a look at the TV and work on it.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I have one here next to me when I pushed power the green LED started blinking until it brought up the picture 1 blink per second about 8 blinks. i am on the tuner input it may vary on different inputs also if it blinking like 1 blink pause 4 blinks or some pattern like that that is tech diagnostic error codes. if the tv is working you should be able to get a menu or on screen display even without an input attached. Also I only heard 1 relay click in the back
