Question about Philips 42PF7320 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

Open Question

Philips model 42PF7320A/37 plasma tv won't turn on red LED flashes 7 times. Tried with the reset by disconnecting cable and trying a different power cable. I tried to turn on by manually pressing power switch on TV side panel and still nothing. I was told by Philips that there it needs to be looked at by a service tech. I also too a blank USB flash drive and Downloaded the firmware update from Philip's site and extract the files (un-zip them). I Turn your TV off; place the USB in the USB drive on the side of my TV and power the TV on. The TV still didn't won't recognize the folder; I only placed the AUTORUN file on your empty Flash Drive. I am reading all over the net there is either an issue with my power supply board or a bad buffer board. What can I do?????

3 flashes indicates that there is a problem in the power supply circuit. Being that you have experience with this, you might be able to fix it.

hello, amigo if the all the caps are godd then you have to replace the power supply board. don't try to fix it this is not an easy task. you are looking at almost $200.00 with tax an shipping. just go to google and type your tv model # and ask for the power supply board or just look for the part# on the board itself. good luck

Tv will not come on. Red light blinking on bottom left front. Red light blinks 7 times


I have the model Philips 37PF7320A/37 won't turn on and MOST articles on the Internet say it's the Capacitors capictors capictors..I checked all of them. My tv just blinked red lights, had the clicking sound at first power on, but then goes black. No sound. No picture. Nothing. Just blinking red lights.

MINE WAS RESISTOR no. 3318 , a 100 OHM RESISTOR ON POWER SUPPLY BOARD.

I BOUGHT REPLACEMENT FOR .99 CENTS SOLDER IT, AND EVERYTHING WORKED!!!

THAT WAS ALL IT TOOK.

JUST A SUGGESTION..
1. CHECK FOR BULGING CAPACITORS (90 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM)
2. THEN CHECK FOR RESISTORS WITH MULTIMETER ( FALLS INTO THE OTHER 10 PERCENT OF THE PROBLEM.)

TELL ME IF THAT HELPS..normanw1@yahoo.comj

FLASHING POWER RED BUTTON 7 TIMES


I believe that is a bad power supply board. You can unplug set ,open the back access panel and look for swollen electrolytic capacitors they will most likely be slightly rounded on top instead of flat top like the others.Not sure if just replacing caps is enough we mainly swap out whole board.Some models' replacement power supply is slightly different from original in that a couple of the plugs are in different spots and require an extension cable.

Philips 42'' Plasma TV 42PF7320A/37 red led error codes


I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=493-1754-ND. Total cost was $7 with S/H.

Philips 42PF7320A blinks 3 times every time i hit the power button


The SSB is small self contained board that u connect your Antenna, and HDMI to. An error three is a communication error between the SSB and to Logic board ( located underneath the SSB on the back fo the plasma panel that is just below the power supply. U can check parts.com and see if u want to purchase a SSB for this TV. Is the 3blinking lights coming from the front of the TV. Also check the power supply and see how many times the green led blinks on the upper left of the power supply and let me know.
