SOURCE: Philips 42PF7220A/37 Red Light blinks 5 times in a row

After a lot of research, I have been able to locate the part which in my Philips 42PF7220A/37 Plasma TV appears to be the problem. I found out that heating and cooling certain parts of the board(s) allowed me to get beyond the 5 flashes error message and power up the TV. Through a process of elimination, I narrowed it down to the SSB Tuner board 3104-313-60376, This board is located behind the board covered with the shield. The specific component in question is the one I have circled in red on the attached photo. It is a crystal Xtal 27 mHZ 18Pf PART# 2422-543-01397. When I spray this component with cold air (freeeze) for a couple of seconds and then plug the power back in the TV will go through it's initialization cycle and turn on. It may turn off automatically, in which case, you just power it back on either manually or with the remote. It has now been 7 days, and it hasn't failed since. I have NOT replaced the part, if it fails again, that will be my next step. The part is about $ 10.00. The entire card can be purchased for about $ 100.-
I am reluctant to do anything further, because I'm not positive that the component is the problem or possibly the input to it. What I do understand is that a crystal can be excited (turned on) by either heat or cold. Perhaps it was stuck and spraying it with cold and heat released it. In any event, the TV is working for now. Hopefully it will stay this way.
If anyone can shed some light on why this may have happened, I would appreciate it.1670792.jpg

SOURCE: my 42 inch plasma wont turn back on after power cut?

Go buy a CRT television for $200 and chunk that HD TV. All of them are made in China with the same poor quality. Why seemingly smart Americans would pay good money for such junk is beyond me.  The LCDs are a cash cow for the monitor and TV industry as they are well aware the inverter boards will fail within 3 years time.  The old CRT tvs will work for the next 15 - 20 years without failure. Get you a good ole 36 in sony black stripe tube and kiss the LCD crowd good by.

I had a Similar problem where I would turn the tv on and the green light would come on and then the red would follow and blink 7 times. I tried unplugging it and then then replugging it back and it would still do the same. What I did last night was that I unplugged it and then replugged it back, when I saw the green light, I would unplug it again, till the light went out and replugged it, I did that 3 times in a row, and waiting and it came back on. Hope that works. I still don't know what caused the problem to begin with..

SOURCE: TV Powers off after 30-45 mins

I had the same problem with my 1 year old 26" TV. I called Magnavox customer service, and they had me upload a new software driver to the TV - which didn't solve the problem. Then they suggested that I call the local Authorized Service Center - and they estimated that it would cost $200+ to fix the problem. But then I found the "remove the back solution" listed here - and it worked!
Thanks, you saved me at least $200.

OK this is a classic switchmode power supply problem There is a fault either IN the SMPSU, OR in another part of the set, usually a short circuit. The PS, is "Shutting Down" for safety reasons, so as to avoid a possible fire, explosion etc. You really need to have this looked at by a qualified person. before you get any work done, always ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding. This is very common.

Monitor goes black - green light stays on

My screen is black, why do I not have a picture?
Answer Antenna is not hooked up to television.
  • Make sure that the antenna cable is correctly connected to the television. If it doesn't work there appears to be no signal.
Problem is caused by television broadcast
  1. Push 'INFO' button.
  2. If the screen shows channel number (1, 2, 3, etc) try another channel. Not all channels broadcast at all times.
  3. You may have a signal problem. Contact cable provider or local broadcaster regarding the specific channel.
Television is in EXT or SIDE mode, and there is no external source provided, so screen mute (black screen) is activated.
  1. Push NEXT SOURCE button on the remote.
  2. On the screen appears all sorces.
  3. Press the UP button to switch to the TV mode.
If you are using an accessory device (DVD, DVR, or VCR), be sure the device is on and running.
Blank screen when connecting to the accessory (DVD, STB, PC) device via HDMI to HDMI.

  • Make sure the cable is well connected .
  • To check which connection is selected, Press the i+ button on the remote control.
  1. When you see Blue mute / blank screen and the i+ display does not indicate any video resolution indication then there is no valid signal detected.
    • Make sure the HDMI output of the accessory is valid by changing the video output resolution to a resolution which the TV can handle.
  2. When you see a blank screen and the i+ display shows a video resolution indication then the connection is correct.
    • The blank screen is caused by the accessory device and not by the TV.
    • To detect and remedy the problem caused by the accessory device, check the instruction manual of this device.
  3. If the problem remains : reselect the HDMI external source input by changing to the other HDMI input and back to the connected HDMI :
    1. Press AV on the remote
    2. Press up and then ok
    3. Press AV again
    4. Press down and ok
    5. The compatibility check process between TV and accessory device will start over again.
  4. Reset (switch off and back on) the TV and also reset the accessory device.

One of the things an HDMI connection does is allow the TV and equipment to talk back and forth to each other. When you turn the TV off it ends this connection but when you turn it back on, it doesn't communicate correctly. The analog inputs don't do this that's why when you change inputs and go back to HDMI it works, because the TV reestablishes that connection. You didn't list the model of the TV but go to "" and click download. Enter the TV you have and click "GO". A list of downloads comes up and your TV may have a firmware update for it. There is instructions on how to do it. Even if this doesn't fix this problem, it is still good to do to avoid other problems. Another solution is to use component (Red/Blue/Green) cables. The highest resolution they support is 1080i, HDMI is 1080p. Depending on the model of your TV and what your watching though, you might not see a difference. TV2 will never have this problem because it is not connected through HDMI.

I have a 607 by Onkyo and you have to assign imputs to the imput selector. I don't know if your model uses the same, but if it does press setup and select input assign then select HDMI imput to see what it is set to.

Imput problems with Samsung DLP TV

The parts required for this are available but difficult to find. The overall repair is not that difficult for anyone that has fixed these before. You'll spend more time getting to the jack than replacing it. Try calling Samsung parts and give them the model as well as the circuit designation of the jack. This designation will be written on the PC board. For less than $5 you should be able to get the jack. Ask a local service shop to install for you and you are off and running.
