Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the battery contacts inside the battery compartment. Check them for any rust or dust accumulated. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, check this link. If remote control is found OK, the infrared sensor inside the TV should be checked and replaced.

The main power regulator board should be checked for any loose solder terminals. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals there. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair! Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center!

Could be a dry joint on the Inverter for the tv which is causing the Relay to Click off due to surge in the power or blown capacitors.

To purchase a new LCD screen is too expensive and not cost effective. You are doing the right thing by searching. Unfortunately, these TVs are still new and finding a salvaged one will take time. The demand right now, for a salvaged screen is in much demand. You must be patient, and time will find one. You may may try the "Shop Jimmy" website. Or check out Encompass TV parts. Sometimes they may have a salvaged one...once again demand is high and the search continues. Just continue to be very patient. Yard sales , pawn shops and continue visiting your local TV shop for one. Good Luck and thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, and a list of Dealers for spare parts, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

You give insufficient information to provide you with a more streamlined solution, so excluse me for being too brief.

What I'd do if I were you is to try and re-flash (update) the firmware in your TV.

if that doesn't help you'll likely need a new main board.

TO update the firmware you'd need the exact model of your Philips. 42PFL5603D has two versions - /F7 and /27.

The update for the first is at

The second is at

Those are Philips provided and supported pages, so you should be able to find your way around there.

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate it with thumbs up - we need your votes if we can't get your money :-)

It is possible that the TV was hit by a small power surge, and the processor has some garbage in it, and you need to leave it unplug for 40 MIN, and that will reset back to normal. Make sure for at lease 40NIM,

A BLUE screen means that there is NO INPUT signal, are you sure you are connected up OK? ON channel etc. If you have and are, then you set has faulted, in the Tuner signal processing section.
Above is your user manual below is a service and repair how to, for your generic Chassis.

So, it is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" form the manufacturers recommended service center, I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. you see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace.

You have to check the 24vdc power supply to see if it is putting out the voltage or the backlight inverter board has failed. Disconnect the inverter board and see if the 24vdc come back.
