There is no easy fix for Plasma sets regardless of the make. They are all notorious for the Y-Main panel and the Upper and Lower Buffer boards going bad. I repair these sets and I see all makes come in the door less than 3 yrs old.

It could be a power supply problem. In this model at least 2 capacitors, go bad in the power supply I think they're 1000uf/10V. If you look at the power supply board you will notice a bad cap with a blister on the top. The whole power board is from $100 - $200. I fixed a lot of these sometime the Y or sustain board goes bad. Visual inspection then measuring voltages..
Best of luck

What is the status of the power LED at the front?

Philips... | Answered on Oct 25, 2010

You either need this part (http://cgi.ebay.com/Philips-50PFP5332D-37-LJ92-01401-Buffer-Board-/150501144120?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item230a913638) or this one depending on your dead screen issue (http://cgi.ebay.com/Philips-50PFP5332D-37-LJ41-04216A-X-SUS-XSUS-Board-/170550290208?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27b596e720)

Not sure what the code means (mine occurred after a slight power surge...maybe an overheat or some kind of overload), but after leaving the tv off for 10-15 minutes the flashing stopped and the picture was fine on restart. I know you've probably figured this out already, but hope it helps somebody because Philips apparently does not want to make it easy to figure out what these codes mean.

There are two parts to this, first you need to have picture in picture. No got, then you cannot view the two at once. Then, you need two input sources, like tuner and dvd. or two tuners.

The capacitors in the power supply you replaced it with are probably blown. Take off the back of the TV and check the capacitors... shown in the picture (in a similar philips model). If they are bulging out instead of flat on the top... they may be bad. If you replaced the power supply before with a unit that had the original capacitors in it, they wear out and only have "X" amount of hours of life. (More below pic)

As far as sound... you may replace the sound board. It's shown in the photo in the center bottom right. Not sure on your TV without opening it or checking the model out more. Good luck

The hum is coming from the transformer on the power source - the source is overstressed by an (or some) aged component and works at the limits of its capabilities , overheating in the process.
Take the tv to a repair shop ASAP, otherwise the aged component/s will die for good and the damage that will ensue will be way more harder and expensive to fix.

I have the same problem with my TV. I haven't verified this yet, but someone I know who's a electronics genius told me that its the buttons on the TV (power, channel, volume, etc.) He said at the factory many of the "button boards" were tightened too much and cracked. When you turn the TV on, the clicking noise is a loose connection. He said it's easy to replace yourself, and about 30 bucks on ebay. No promises though.

If your computer has either an HDMI output or an S-video output it will connect directly to your TV. If it does not have either of those then you will need to buy a PC to TV converter box and connect the VGA cable from the computer to the box and then use either an RCA or S-video cable to connect from the converter to your TV. Here is an example of a PC to TV converter:

Can you hear audio? It is possible that you may need to go to the philips website, download an update to a flash drive, plug the drive into the usb port on your tv then turn the tv on. it will load the update automatically... worth a try, it worked for me.

Philips... | Answered on Sep 10, 2010

This is likely the relay that connects the AC to the main power supply although in a plasma TV it could indicate a failure of the high voltage power supply for the display itself.
Turning on most sets causes a small power supply for the infrared remote receiver to connect the main power supply to AC. If the power supply itself is defective, the relay interrupts or if the supply is still healthy, it may disconnect the AC again to prevent damage to the main supply and possibly a fire.
Since there are two primary sources for this problem and no good way to separate them as the faulty part, you will need a tech to be on site to determine exactly which failure has occurred.

Above is a service training manual, to give you an idea of how it all works. To do ANY work, one MUST obtain a Service manual for your exact make and model.
This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, a Philips, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand.

Before we proceed, kindly provide few details :-

1. How old is the TV?
2. Is there any sequence of the blinks, like 2 blinks then pause followed by 2 blinks? If yes, kindly mention the same.


Philips... | Answered on Jul 20, 2010

Philips televisions have been known to do this, this is because of its power source inside the tv, i would recommend replacing the part.
