Hi,
TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.
Hope these info will help you.

Philips 42fd9954-175 Plasma won't power up


Failing capacitors in the power supply have now failed completely.

Had never tried blow-drier as a TV service tool.

Heat changes the resistance of many parts, especially dying capacitors. Heat also causes parts to expand, such that cracked solder connections are closed up.

Freezer coil is plugging up with frost, Your problem is defrost timer or heater related. If it is the timer you can located the timer and rotate the Clutch screw for the timer, turn it very slowly Clockwise until you hear one click. The compressor will shut off and the defrost heaters will turn on. Waite about 25-30 minutes and if the refrigerator does not restart (Normal time would be 18-22 minutes) rotate the screw again clockwise small amount and it will start cooling. Observe the drain pan for defrost water. If the refrigerator restarted (18-22 minutes) and no water is in the drain pan you problem is defrost heaters. If after the 25-30 minutes the refrigerator did not restart on its own and water is in the drain pan your problem is the defrost timer.

Power on and yet picture flicks and powers it's self off (over and over again)


First it's not just Philips, they all are making TV to only last a few years now, they are not made to last, thats how they make money by selling you something you will have to replace in just a few short years. As far as your problem, you may have a cold solder joint somewhere, do you have a 25/35 watt soldering iron? if so try soldering pins on the regulator IC the vertical IC the horz output transistor and drive transformer and the flyback, in fact solder just about as much as you can, spend some time in there soldering. Dont forget to ubplug the set and stay away from the high voltage anode connected to the picture tube, it can still hold a charge even if the set is unplugged, do not try to take it off. Hope this helps!
