It seems your projector is becoming finicky, this has been a problem with some brands. I would recommend you replace the part yourself, or call an expert.

Philips... | Answered on Jul 17, 2010

You either need to completely replace the PSB-Power supply board or replace the Uf caps on the PSB. Usually they are blown and sometimes the capacitors leak the electrolite onto the board cutting of trace circuitry. Recaping is fairly cheap. You will need a solder iron and some solder and of course new caps.

some possible causes of the 6 blinks

6 times, Diagnosis: LOW B OCP/OVP (Overcurrent/over voltage). Possible causes: +5 line is overloaded. (A, B boards), +5 line is shorted. (A, B boards). Symptoms of the problem: No picture.

"6 I2C error while communicating withthe NVM.7315 The TV will not startup
due to critical dtanot available from theNVM, but the LEDwill blink the error

You might also want to check the capacitors on the new board you fitted. Quite often the problem is caused by components on the a b or vc boards feeding back to the power board and overloading the capacitors. Board swapping is not toloerated well by tyhese new non crt sets and manufacturer recommends a complete board change when one is affected. DIY is never really fixed as this forum has shown many times. Too little knowledge, leads to bigger expenditure than if it was fixed professionally the first time.

You may also wish to know that Philips has had a class action against it for this fault. There is an abundance of this information on the net. Just type class act6ion Philips Plasma.

Thanks for using FIXYA

Hi. I did some reasearch on your TV, and this is what I found with regards to updating th software on the TV.

Firstly, you will need to download the “autorun.upg” file, and copy it to the root directory of a USB portable memory device. You can download the file at the following link:


1- Power off your TV and remove all memory devices.
2- Insert the USB portable memory that contains the downloaded software upgrade.
3- Switch on your TV with the power switch on the side of the TV.
4- At startup the TV will scan the USB portable memory until it finds the
update content. The TV will automatically go to the upgrade mode. After a few seconds it will display the status of the upgrade procedure.

Note: Do not remove the USB drive from the TV while it is updrading.

Hope this helps :)

This 6 blink code refers to signal processing error with your I.C.Please keep in mind that the error codes do not necessarily reflect what has caused the problem, they only reflect a result of the condition - which means it could be an I.C or the I.C is not working due to something else in the circuit making it malfunction.You need to have the schematic of the TV to troubleshoot.

Do you have the Service Manual.If not,you need to buy or download one to make sure you have the detail and then, we could move on from there.If you have electronic repair knowledge then you can certainly attempt to repair it yourself. However, if you do not, it is VERY dangerous or even deadly in the back of these sets as there is STILL a high voltge charge in this unit and I really advise calling a technician for the job. If you have the knowledge base and would like the procedure to repair it yourself. You will need an industrial test meter such as a Fluke or BK, you should also have an oscilloscope if possible, and an industrial soldering iron such as Hot Air type (this is preferred for post wave components)or Weller (Not Radio Shack). It takes years of schooling and many more years of hands on experience to do what you are attempting, and your safety is my main concern.If you have the service manual, equipment and the knowledge of the internal circuitry and workings of the television than you can certainly attempt to troubleshoot it yourself and possibly even repair it.

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hello, If you can turn it back on with the s momentary key or power button:
When it shuts off, do you need to push the power button once or twice to get it back on? Also, does anything else about the picture or sound change as it warms up?
If once, then the controller is shutting the TV down either as a result of a (thermally induced) fault in the controller or it sensing some other problem. Monitoring the voltage on the relay coil (assuming these is one) could help determine what is happening. The controller thinks it is in charge.
If twice, then the power supply is shutting down as the controller still thinks it is on and you are resetting it. A couple of possibilities here would be low voltage or high voltage regulation error (excessive high voltage is sensed and causes shutdown to prevent dangerous X-ray emission). A partially dried up main filter capacitor could also cause a shutdown but there might be other symptoms like hum bars in the picture just before this happened. Clipping a good capacitor across the suspect (with power off!) would confirm or eliminate this possibility.
If it uses a pull-knob (or other hard on/off switch), then this may be like pulling the plug and would reset any abnormal condition.

Can you tell me which Cable box you are using?Which model/region?

The possibility is that the HDCP handshake could not have happend correctly and hence the issue. Try to connect to different HDMI input of TV from Cable box. If possible change the resolution of cable box and check video

Philips... | Answered on May 11, 2010

I sugest you to change the video resolution settings on the PS-3 to see if TV sets to any one resolution...if you have any other video out (analog from PS3)...connect the out to TV and check video at different resolutions. If PS3 has Deep Color settings turn it OFF.

Philips... | Answered on May 11, 2010


This is a Common Problem on this Set. Kindly Check to make sure that the Video Cable is Fine. There is nothing wrong with it.

Other than this, you need to Open the TV and get it Repaired.We need to Check :-


These are the main Causes. Once we would Inspect and Test these, we could move onto Check T Conn Board and other Components.

But, as we Discuss more often it is the Buffer Board that Needs replacement.If you wish, you could Call a Repairman and get it Fixed. But, if the Buffer Boards would be at fault, be ready for an Expense of more than $500.

If you have Tools and Experience and wanted to Fix it Yourself, let me know and i would be glad to Follow up.

Let me know,so that we could Proceed.

Hope i helped you.

As there is a Click Noise, more likely it is Power Supply Board. You need to Open the TV. Make sure it would be Unplugged. You need to Take all the Precautions. Locate the Power Supply Board. Remove the Connectors and Pull out the Board. Once you Pull out the Board, with the Help of Magnifying Glass, locate Cold Solder Joint. If Everything is OK, then you would Locate Bulged / Leaked / Swelled Caps. They would have Ammonia kind of Odor. You need to De-Solder them. You could take the same to Radio Shack / Fry's / Order Online. Once you get the New Caps, Solder them and it is all set.You also need to Check Fuses around that.

Getting a Service Manual for this Model could be tough, but i would be able to ask few vendors, in case problem would not be resolved. Usually, you could easy repair the Power Supply Board, if you could catch Few Bad Caps ( which i assume as you heard a Click Sound ).

Let me know,once done.

Hope i helped you.
