Question about Philips E-Box FTR9965 DTV Receiver

6 Answers

Philips plasma won't turn on first time

I have a Philips plasma tv, model no.32fd9944/os1 and the reciever model no.is FTR9964. I'm having trouble getting the tv to turn on first time, either with the remote or directly using the buttons on the reciver. If I turn the power off and on again (on the screen and the reciver) eventually I can get the tv to power up, once its on there are no other problems. Also once it has been on for a while its possible to switch on and off with no problems. Philips repair service want £400 call out fee just to have a look at the tv (very cheeky), with labour and parts on top of that I may as well buy a new tv. Any suggestions? I would be very gratefull, or details of a company that will repair a Philips plasma for a reasonable price. Many thanks Neil Witney

I have found this on a site and am in the proccess of trying to mend my plasma PF9964 as it started to take longer and longer until it stopped coming on. I've got the back off so I just need to un solder capacitors and replace. Here's the info I found. Bad power switch circuit General Comments If you have this problem with your Philips 32PF9964: When I switch the TV on, it appears as though it is going to start i.e the green light comes on, then after about 10 seconds it switches itself off and the standby light flashes red. It takes 10 /12 times before it starts and is getting worse. This is the solution: The problem is three caps. Change the cap 2663, 2664 both 100µ/25V and 2662,1000µ/25V. After you have changed them your TV will work again. You will find them easy if you unscrew the back on the plasma TV. Cheers, Mike

Hi Mike

I have exactly the same issue with my Phillips 42" - 42FD9954. Do you know if changing the same caps will help? Also where abouts they are located?

Cheers
Dino

I also have the same issue with a 42PF9431D. Can anyone fill me in as to whether this can be fixed similiarly and which caps to replace?

Will the caps have tell tale signs, like a puffy look?

Thanks,
David

Hey Mike - thanks for that solution - works a treat

I had a tv engineer quote £280 for the repair - after reading your answer, I bought the 3 capacitors at 16p each, a soldering iron at £3.99 and some solder at £1.99.

About an hour later job done for less than a tenner!!

Our philips plasma's(32FD9944 / 69S) receiver box is not working. One of its IC has broken completely. So how can I find that IC's number. And if could not find its number then what is the second option

It will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market; even if you did recognize its number; I'm sure. It will be best to contact the authorized service center for Philips. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Philips E-Box FTR9965 Blinking Red Standby Light

Hi, my TV is starting to develope a problem & I have traced it to the e box (mine is FTR9964). I had the screen repaired in January (would'nt start from cold) cost was £156 inc vat. Anyway this time its the ebox & since we are going digital next year I thought I would try & do away with the e box by using one of these http://www.js-technology.com/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=33&osCsid=c05e56ff6e909a4b42d53af48a5940ae I managed to buy one on eBay for £30, so fingers crossed it should be problem solved.
