Several errors possible.
These sets have a very complicated power supply with a complicated error detection circuit.If you need the service manual please contact me.

Look first to the power supply board--check for missing voltages and puffed up caps.

There should be a power button on the bottom right side of the 42fd9932/17g. If there is a signal with a compatible resolution coming into the TV on the current input when you turn it on, it should display that signal. Otherwise, it will go into a power-saving mode and you will need to press the power button again.

As far as I know, there is no child lock that would stop this power button from working.

The manual is available here: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?scy=AR&slg=ENG&sct=PLASMA_TV_SU&cat=TV_CA&session=20091107070600_66.249.65.34&grp=SOUND_AND_VISION_GR&ctn=42FD9932/17G&mid=Link_UserManuals&hlt=Link_UserManuals .

I hope this helps. If you do need a replacement remote (for example the unit was designed for a waiting room and thus doesn't have the power button), an exact replacement remote is available here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=42fd9932%2F17g&uuid=13040367530230 . Most universal remotes should work if they were programmed 6 months or more after the TV was released. However, the low end ones may not match some of the features of the original and you may need to try several codes to get all of the features to work.

I had the same problem, no picture, contacted Philips who put me on to NESN (0845 610 4105) for local agent, they diognosed a falty "Inverter Board" all costs will be £365as the set is only 18 months old Philips are looking into some compensation towards the costs. I await there reply. Looking at several web sites worldwide this seems to be a problem with this set between 12 & 24 months old.

sounds like a bad capacitor in set. If you are electronically inclined you can try getting schematics online and replace bad 'cap' otherwise you will need to take to a repair shop or replace set.

I it down on a blanket, make sure to remove any objects on the blanket so it will not scratch up the screen.
Most failure in the PLASMA TV are the power supply module, Z-sustain module, Y-sustain module. Look for bad caps, blown fuses, etc.
You can download any one of the PLASMA TV training manuals to learn how PLASMA TV works.

Or www.digikey.com, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please leave rating if it helps.

Kindly take a look at :-


This is Y sustain board for your model. When you open the TV, you would be able to see that.
