Your TVs picture complaint is related with Ground connection. Check whether the power cable of your TV is of 3 core one. If so, connecting with other devices, which has different ground points will be the cause of this fault. Just unplug the cable connection and play an other video from an other source. First check the TV only with external antenna, and make it auto search. Let it tune all the on-air programmes. After that, check each channel. If there is no interference; make sure that the interferance is with some other device connections. Connect the one by one; and thus you can determine which device cause the ground interference.
The fault is surely with interconnections and not with your TV. OK.

This is a common fault solution which can be checked and corrected by you assuming that there is no component failure . There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance.

The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on , If there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points.

Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up, if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault.

Based on the above method you must be able to locate the area of fault and solder the sections. Sometimes large IC's- ones with more pins- tend to have drying in some pins and so cause faults related to the IC's protocol. Have a rough idea of looking into the areas to reduce the time of probing.

Check for tips to look into the SMPS unit:

As it does not power ON and shows 6 flashing at its standby light, the power supply regulator section inside your TV is faulty. Normally Plasma Tv poser supply is non repairable, especially for Philips. The power supply board number of your TV is [ LJ92-01511A ]. Just open your set, and locate this board iniside it. It can be located very easly as main power chord goes staraight to it. Check these capacitors has been bulged or not. if bulged, repalce them. The part numner marked are [ DC 8104, DC 8105, DC 8107, DC 8413 & DC 8414. All of them are 680uf 50V. Check these capacitors too. DC 8013 [1000uf 16V] ; DC 8419 [3300uf 10V]. These are the only replacable parts in the power supply baord. If these capacitors are found OK, no bulge to them, the switching section is faulty, No parts in it can't be replaced as they will be not available at local electronic sparepart market.
There is no other way than replacing the board as card basis. The card number is given above. OK

This clicking sound Boss, is coming from the power supply inside the unit. This means there is trouble on the line inside, now what board is in trouble would need further diagnosis. We hope you understand we cannot give a real 100 percent answer to what is the actual cause without looking at the unit.
Most plasma Tv's operate with a series of boards inside the unit to make the magic happen. A simple relay clicking noise tells us that there is a issue with one of the boards inside the unit but does not tell us witch one.
Most TV's do have a standby SOS light that would give you a series of blinks, this would tell us what issues the TV has. Can you tell us if you got any standby light., what are they doing, how many blinks?
Thanks for using fixya.com

Best of luck to you

This is a plasma unit and philips plasma's are nortorious for bad power supplys, your problem may very well be the power suppy in the television, it is possible you blew a low B+ fuse on the power supply. There is also a issue with the Y-sustain board failing in this model, If you open the back and looking at the unit from the rear the y board is on the left side of the unit and the PS is in the center. disconnect the Y-sustain power plug from the power supply and turn on the unit if the unit stays on with no red light then the y board is bad. it does the same then replace the Power Supply.

First place to check is the power supply board. I have not repaired this particular model. I'm very certain you have two bad capacitors in the power supply. This is a classic problem for Philips flat TVs. The capacitors will be bulged or skinned. Be sure to replace them with same values. I would certainly gamble my time removing the power supply for inspection. Spending a few bucks on two capacitors may prove good. A working TV is near. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Your Television problem on vertical section.
Solve: If you repair itself replace vertical IC or thoroughly resolder dry any components.

Philips... | Answered on Jun 10, 2011

good day!

unfortunate the only way to fix that error is to replaced the signal processor.

therefore,you have to try this before you replaced the IC processor.

  1. open the back cover
  2. check if any bulged top capacitors
  3. look at the ic processor and check all the parts near the IC
  4. if the problem persist,you don't have a choose,you have top replaced the IC.

thank you and good luck

I cant tell you how to program it without knowing which universal remote you are currently using, however, the code for a precision tv is going to be: 166
Good luck! If my answer helped you please give me a positive rating :)

There Are 2 10 Volt 33000mfd. Electrolytic Capacitors At The Bottom Of The Power Supply Board,
They Are Right Next To Each Other, They Should Look Swollen ,They Should Be Changed To 12 or16
Volt Versions,This Seems To Have Worked In Three Sets I Have Seen.
Good Luck

Either the power supply has an issue , or you have a bad buffer board and Ysus scan board or both.red light indicating may mean power supply , 7 blinks the buffers and y board.
It could be just a few bad capacitors on the Power Supply, there could be a bad capacitor on the Y board if its bad it needs to be replaced with the buffers together
If you want to attempt the repair yourself you can do a visual of the power board caps will appear swollen on top.
The ones you are looking for are located almost center bottom of the power board,Usually I can see them clearly with the back on simply shining a light into the back through the holes

With the back removed you will see a few circuit boards the upper one (ac cord runs to it through a small board) is the power supply, it has a lot of capacitors on it (cylindrical standing straight up soldered in and marked on the sides with the positive/negative sides and uf and Volts values)
Philips uses 2200uf or 3300uf at 35Volts rating capacitors, they cost about $1-$2 each

The power board and back unscrew with a torx bit and screwdriver size 10 and 15 , if you do not know how to desolder and resolder then do not attempt this as you may damage the TV more than fix it.
We do not recommend do it yourself, but depending on your knowledge and technical ability you may be able to.
You can replace the whole power supply, .
If there is a blinking red light on the TV count the blinks,if it still blinks after replacing the swollen cap this would indicate a bad buffer board ,
check the capacitors by looking for the swollen tops .
I hope that will helpout.....

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Capacitor being replaced! Fairly easy DIY fix.
