Philips 42PW9982 TV does not turn on

Hello, TV in question is Philips Plasma 42pw9982/19. The fault is that when the TV is turned on red light comes on. It then goes to green but when we press the remote control buttons, it goes back to red a few seconds later. I appreciate assistance is diagnosis and a possible remedy of the fault.

    Hello,

    Some change in the problem now.

    Now the LED remains green. When started, TV initially shows some glow and pinkish black striations on the screen (tries to start) and then the screen goes blank with green LED permanatly on on both screen and tuner box. Green lights blinks both on tuner part and the main screen with pushing of remote button but no change in the screen.

    Any idea where the problem lies?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    Some more details about the problem.

    I tried connecting a standard crt computer monitor to amplifier/ tuner box unit but it failed to pick-up any signal. I tried both front and rear connections but same result. Should I assume that the amplifier/ tuner box is faulty? if yes, how to check? (Monitor it self is OK as it works fine with computer)

    When I start the box, it starts with a reasonable buzzing sound as if some motor is starting or some big system is energizing (this is when Plamsa TV tends to show signs of life and tries to start) but after a few seconds that buzzing sound starts disappearing and only very low level sound of box fan remains there. This powering behaviour remains same irrespective of whether Plasma monitor is connected or not. Lights on box and plasma monitor remains green at all time.

    Any clue where to start tracing the problem, may be some weak capacitor, faulty transistor, relay etc. and how to rule-out various possibilities?

    Thanks for any assistance.

The most common issue i find with Plasma TV's acting like this is a failed power supply in them, usually due to leaky/failed capacitors. About your only option is to find someone with the know-how to repair it, as its almost impossible to find a replacement board. I fix more TV power supply boards then anything else these days.

SOURCE: TV Volume turns down by itself - Philips 29PT8319 Matchline 27"

Most likely the volume down button on the front of the TV or the switch that it activates is sticking. Should be an easy fix otherwise.

I cannot get it to turn on. in the lower right

The flashing light indicates a failure with-in the tv, the amount of blinks will coincide with a particular fault scenario. Tell me how many times the light blinks and I can tell you the problem. However, the tv will need servicing from your local shop. This tv is too complex to walk you through fixing this problem with Philips plasma tvs.
