Change C82 (1500uF/16V), C83 (1500uF/16V) and C84 (680uF/16V) on the external power supply.

Let me know what happens after that.

    Thank you planqui2000, Do you know what it looks like as I have no idea and how do you check to see if they are damaged?.

  • blanqui2000 Apr 07, 2011

    Those items are capacitors. They look like small cilinders and you can locate them by reading the writing on the board, they are marked as C82, C83 and C84.
    You need a capacimeter to check whether they are good or not.
    If they are bulged or have leaked you can be sure they are bad without using any capacimeter.
    Those items are really cheap, so change them and tell me if the problem has been solved.

    If u planning to check the power supply board,that the board where the power a/c cord plug into it for dying capacitors like it bulging up or puffing up on to it tops.Changes capacitors parts u must have all the tools like a soldering iron,a roll of solders,a desoldering pump or a roll of desoldering wicks,understanding basic electronic and also have to know how to do bsaic soldering work before u can changes parts like capacitors.If u don't have all the tools and understanding basic eclectronic,and can't also do the basic soldering work.Tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.Best and the safest way and the easiest way to get the tv working again,without messing around the power supply board for replacing capacitors parts,if don't have all the tools,know basic of electronic and soldering work.

I have Phillips TV Model 23PFL5522D/05. Suddenly it will not turn on, just get an intermittent flickering red light Any thoughts

The problem of your tv is that the main power supply board is already faulty. this problem is caused by a leaky capacitor or bulged up in the top of the capacitors or not perfectly flat. So then your dc voltage is not sufficient to supply the other parts. when trying to replace the capacitor you should unplug your unit then wait for a minute to be sure that the electric charge to the capacitor will be discharge. and remember the proper position of the capacitor it has a polarity.

You have to check the power supply of you tv for any voltage missing. also check the back light inverter board for any short circuit in it. Inverter transformers in the back light controlling board can become faulty.Three blink indicate the power supply have some problem. First of all replace all the electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board. If filter capacitors in the power supply is bad then this problem can occur.
