    upon visual inspection, the caps all *seem* ok. Nothing seems to be obviously amiss visually.

Since Philips service manuals do not list a chart for the LED blinking diagnostics, the first thing to look for is faulty electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board, one of the most common causes of failure in plasma tvs. The capacitors are cylindrical objects with an x or k mark at the top. See if you can find any of them on the power supply that are inflated(bulged) at the top and/or cracked. Please let me know what are your observations sot that we can proceed accordingly.

    Ok .Can you please get me an image so that I can confirm. I am asking coz the service manual lists nothing about this problem and we should eliminate possibilities one by one.

Are there any blown caps on the PSB-power supply board. Most sets have sammy boards and they used very shotty caps. If there are no visual clues being a poped cap at the top (X) they simply often do vaporize and dry out. The YSUS-Main and the 2 Y buffer boards control the picture OSD-on screen display. Your not getting any of that. So power supply is where you start first. The YBU-upper and the YBL-lower control the upper and lower OSD the Ysus main control both of them. Usually if you have one in the door you have to replace all 3. But not always. If you were to replace any of the boards I would replace the YSUS-Main, or get the board reworked at a pc repair shop that does board level test and repai. Its more cost effective.

Best Regards and Semper Fi

The Ymain Board is out if you have the back of the tv exposed disconnect the ymain board and then plug in the tv set and turn it on. the light should remain green and no longer flash. If this happens the Y main and upper and lower buffer boards should be replaced

A tech will need to come out. When the tech do come out have him unplug the Y main and see if the led goes solid greem if it does have them replace the Ymain and the Y upper/lower boards. Most likely that will be the problem.
