Philips 42PF9630A/37 PLASMA TV

My TV will no stay on and will go from green light to red light which flashes 7 times. I open the back cover and I saw in the power supply a green led light which flashes 3 times and found that it was a Vscan error alarm/code. So I started unplugging some connectors until I unplug the connector that goes to the board LJ92-01200A which they call a Y-board and the TV stays on and I can control the TV with remote or the side buttons. NO pictures but I connected and input (my video camera) and I can here the sound. Do I need to replace this Y-board?

    I am having the same problem. My tv is connected to an HD cable receiver, and a Phillpis home theatre system. If I try to turn the tv on first, the led light blinks green first like it's trying to turn on, then blinks red over and over. But if I manually(not using remotes) turn on my reciever and then home theatre, THEN tv it works fine....explain that? Have you had any luck with yours?

    If you need to replace the y-board--good luck. It is on factory back order with no date of arrival. My tv is 2 1/2 yrs old--out of warranty--It has been at the philips recommended repair center for 2months. Philips recommended that the repair center actually try to fix the part themselves--of course the tv repair center doesn't really fix --they only replace. They will not use a reclaimed part.--I'm begining to feel SOL!!!!!

    My TV repair shop (Philips recommended) has had my Philips 42PF9630

    A/37 for 2 months and can't get the Y- board. It is flashing the same code (7 red blinks) and won't power on. This really sucks. The set is almost 3 years old and parts are not available.

The TV normally has a green light illuminated in the lower left. Now there is a red blinking light (7 times) and the TV is not responding to any TV buttons or remote commands. If I unplug and plug back in,...

Philips Televisions are legendary for having faulty power supply capacitors.

In order to prevent really bad things from happening, the TV does a two-stage power-on. It first does a basic diagnostic test, and if that fails, it stops it from going any further.

Philips tends to use cheap capacitors, use capacitors that are somewhat under-sized for the job, and also seems to be pretty bad at soldering.

Personally I've got my Philips LCD TV opened up on my workbench for that exact problem.

Most repair shops would replace the whole power supply board ($150-200 part plus labor), while most DIY fixers take a stab at replacing the obviously bulging and failed caps for less than $10.
