Be certain operating temperature (room temp) is between 50- 95F.
Random shutdown problems are often software related, especially when using HDMI input.
Software can be obtained from manufacturer.
Power supply issues are also common. Bad capacitors which are identifiable by sight.
If you want to attempt the repair yourself, contact me and I will tell you what and where to look.

Hi rking532,
This symptom was caused by faulty sustain board. First if you can take it apart check for loose connection from the LCD controller board and your sustain board. Pull-out all connectors then re-insert again. Check also if there was a bad solder joints in that board. Let me know if still the symptom persist.

If it is digital TV, change antenna(UHFonly), and change position of the antenna to get less inteference of digital signal. Signal strength is the TV station carrier frequency, does not help digital video signal integrity. Often if you change channels will reset the digital signal cache and get better pictures.

Philips lists 3 models of your TV:
1) 50PFP5332D/37
2) 50PFP5332D/37B
3) 50PFP5332D/37E

User Manual for your TV (actually for the 50PFP5332D/37E):
The user manual doesn't document the logic board blink codes for errors.

What this tells me is that the TV went thru two revisions before reaching version E.
in case it helps: Philips Customer Support: 1-888-PHILIPS.
If they can't help otherwise, they can at least tell you if your set is eligible for warranty service.

unplug tv overnight. if that doesnt work the powersupply is probably bad.

Unfortunately this would be uneconomical to repair due to the price of the plasma display panel. Your best option would be to look on eBay for a faulty set with working pdp

If you open the unit check the power supply for two bad capacitors that are puffin up on their tops. all electrolyte capaitors should have flat tops. Replace them with same type capactance rating, they may be labeled with a voltage rating of 10volts change this to 16 Volts. They may be labeled 2200uf at 10 Volts change to 2200 at 16 volts.

This sounds like an issue with the power board. There are actually 100's of posts about philips tv's and this problem. You should be able to find a new power board on ebay for around a 100$. Otherwise if you or someone you know is good at soldering/de-soldering. I would check the power supply board for bad capacitors and replace them with ones of equal value. Besides the labor involved the cost of the capacitors is quite cheap usually a couple bucks each tops. If you have any other questions please let me know. If you find this helpful please take the time to accept/rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,

It will have a standard figure 8 power lead connector at rear.
You should try local electronics store for spare lead.

The power regulator PCB has some fault it it. It does not outs proper regulated voltages needed to the other PCBs in your TV. Normally Plasma TV power regulator PCBs are very difficult to repair, and PCB as whole should be replaced. If you give this set to Philips Authorised service center, they also will do this, and they too can do only this. In my opinion, it is best to get it repaired by Philips Service center, because, Plasma displays are very sensitive to static voltages, and repairing it without proper measuring instruments and circumstances, may damge it and it is irreparable. If fuse is gone out, you must aware that there must be som sort of short, or overload inside your TV circuits. If you have technical skill, a proper knoledge of the power regualtor working, and mor confidence and patience, you can do this. You have the ability to follow the schematic diagram of your set, which can be obtained from philips website. You must have a high quality digital multimeter, and static free DC soldering iron to go on. Some times, an Oscilloscope may also be needed.
Beware, your TV has built on most modern electronic technology, and is colstly one. Never attempt anymore on it, if you are fully aware of its working principles, and proper knoledge in Electronics. Philips uses some special components of their own, which cannot be purchased locally.
Determine yourself, what to do. OK.

Tries tv unplug,replug it back about an hour later,by letting the tv resetting itself back to the factory setting.The tv now should be work again.If it have the same result.Mean the power supply board is the causes and the problems.That the board,where the power a/c cord plug into it.Tries website like Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

The most common failure on this set to cause that symptom is the power supply. There are capacitors that fail and you can usually see most of the bad parts just by looking at them. If this is the case the best way to repair the problem is to rebuild the power supply rather than replacing it. Mainly because another power supply will have the same problem down the line but you can rebuild your board with heavy duty replacement parts for far less and have it last longer. Most shops will charge about 125-250 us dollars to do this repair. To do it yourself you need test equipment and soldering supplies. Better to have a repairman do this one. Good Luck, Russmann.

Hi Check the componet cables, especially if you are using HDMI connectors. Also if you are using a cable box disconnect if from the tv and run the cable signal directly to the TV to see if problem persists. If all cables are connected tightly and secure, then replace the main digital board.

Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
