Question about Philips 32RF52S 32" TV

Dead TV - Please Help

Hello all, awesome site, hopefully some one can help me. I will be as specific as possible so you experts out there might be able to help. I have a 32" flat screen Philips CRT. The model number is 32RF52 and it was build in 2003. About 2 months ago the picture just went out while I was watching it, but the sound still worked. It would not respond the the remote or its own buttons. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, problem solved. A couple of days later, same thing. After about 3 times I had to unplug it for an hour or more before it would come back on. I have had to do this for 6 or 7 times now. Last night it went out and is not coming on anymore. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate all the help I can get, cant afford a new set. If you need any information I may have left out just let me know. Thanks

    Sound no picture, what I was doing until now was plugging it out and then back in and that seemed to work until now...

It is possible that there are failed components in the CRT bias circuits, or one of the scan circuits, or in the power supply, or in the high voltage section.

When any one of the areas fail, the set goes in to protect mode and biases off the CRT. If any of the other areas fail, the picture will also go black. In some models of TV sets, the sound is not critical of these areas that are mentioned here.

To fix this problem, proper troubleshooting of the set will be required. There are many components involved in the TV set that can cause failures to appear to be of this type.

You will have to have the set serviced by someone who is experienced and equiped to do TV service.

Phillips 42PFP53320 42" Plasma TV. No picture,

Hello jporter...

welcome here in fixya..

That problem is one of the common problems of plasma TV (have sounds but no picture)..As a expert of flat panel for more than 5 years I already encounter that kind of problem many times..

Actually that problem is caused of either X,Y or Z sustain board or even both 3 boards are faulty..Because some models when the one of those boards have short circuit or bad there are possibility that other sustain board are affected..But most the problem like yours is "Y-SUSTAIN" board..

I can't find your model online please double check it it either Phillips 42PFP5332D/37 or 42PFP5532D/05

And for specific and easy way to find replacement please try to look at the part # of that board (it is usually printed on the sticker attach to the board itself..

Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate my answer..

Have a nice day!!!


Red led light intermittingly flashing all the time. tv will not switch on


Your power supply board is dead, do you know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

Hope this will help fix the problem....

This is probably too late being a year later, but for the reference of anybody else reading this later on down the line, THe convergence IC's need to be replaced. STK392-110. There are two chips and they both should be replaced in tandem. After that a simple customer convergence is all it takes to get it back to normal.
