Question about Philips 50PFP5332D 50 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

42PF5321D/37 Hi, thanks for posting answer to my Q. Here is my current update of what I have checked per you advice: OK, when I am watching the boards in the back, I plug in the unit to power. All the leds come on, ie..the power board, the logic board (with the 1 solid and 1 blinking led next to each other, top right of board), and the 1 (lower) led on the SSB. 10 seconds later all the leds shut off (Relays click) then 2 leds instead of 1 on the SSB lights up and stays on. Does this still sound like the SSB to you Lawrence1974?, (When i plug in the set, VS reads on a DCV scale of 20 volts - .11 then goes up to .18 , then (about 10 seconds later) the relays click and drops to zero) and BTW Thanks for posting your help! Oh, just so I am looking at the right board, the SSB is the board that has the silver phillips tuner box on it, where you plug in the coax cable line right?

    It doesn't blink anymore. solid green, until the relay kicks in and turn the unit off, and I bought it brand new in the box 2 years ago from a rent to own place, finished paying it off and 2 months later it did this, the rent place said they wouldn't fix it, so I doubt it is still under warranty, so I have no choice but to fix it myself.Unless you know something I don't. What really chaps me is that I recommended this unit to all my friend and half of them bought the same unit, Of course, theres still work great.

That is correct about the SSB. Now before we go any futher is this set still under warranty? If so or if it is just a little out like a couple of months contact Philips @1-888-744-5477. PS. on the front of the set where the power button is how mant times do that led blinks.

I have a phillips 42PF5321D/37. All of a sudden it started flashing 6 times when I tried to turn it on. I unplugged it downloaded software update and updated the tv with the instructions provided and tv...

if the tv is only working when it's being updated then there is either a problem with the update firmware or the tvs memory chip. the chip is on the main av board and its best not to touch it if you don't know what you are doing, replacing the board may only be your option.

42" Plasma 42PF5321D/37 will not power on. I replaced the fuse on the power supply board with a 3 amp (that's what it looked like, but I'm not sure it was the right size because it was burned

Always replace fuse with fuse value required If fuse value is less it will burn out . If you replace with fuse that is required and it burns out then you have bad short in power supply circuit In that case check bridge rectifier

Plasma tv in protect mode


One of the PCB's inside has an incorrect voltage/short or dry joint, all TV now days have a diagnostic startup mode which checks all the boards, one of yours threw up a problem so the TV put itself into Protect Mode so that it doesn't do anymore damage.

Get it checked out by an engineer.
