Wow that is a lot of money in any currency. Coming from England its not uncommon to be paying £200+ to repair a tv like yours. If you could give a little more information then maybe I could narrow it down for you. You say its gone black but does your standby light still come on? If you try to turn it on with the remote control does the stanby light flash quickly then re-appear? Or does it come out of standby and have a black screen? Can youm get sound through a dvd player but no picture? If you can answer these questions who knows maybe he will do it cheaper if you supply the part yourself!!! Dont think he will but worth a try :-) please post again.

1/3 of screen on left is blacked out


Could be power supply but most likely sustain boards, which are very expensive to repair. Consider replacing with an LCD with warranty!

I have 42 plasma tv that makes a clicking noise then show 8 blinking red lights anyone now whats the problems my model # 42pf9431d/37


I don't have a fix, but the same thing happened to my Philips Plasma and the V repair man tells me that Philips no longer make the service pack which contained all the parts required to fix the TV. Basically Plasma screens run very hot and the components on the main board breakdown. So when the power supply goes so do many other parts. Philips used to supply all the bits in a service pack so it would seem that they (Philips) knew all about this inevitable fault from early production.
I am livid and if you paid what I paid then you are probably livid too. I expected it to breakdown one day but I never thought that it would be impossible to fix. I would never have bought a plasma if I knew it was considered to be a disposable item by the manufacturer. It could be worse, apparently Samsung don't support their TV's after 2 years.
I am phoning Philips in the morning and will post the results of that call if they have anything positive to say.

I have a Philips plasma 42 with black lines across the screen


I would first check if there is an available firmware upgrade for your model .Upgrade requires you to download firmware from philips website.Then transfer it to a memory stick .Then use a memory stick reader to plug into tv for firmware upgrade.Other wise the set would probably need repair .Possible a bad SSB board or another issue
