Question about Philips 42PF5521D 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: Red blinking led
My 42" Philips LCD did the same red blinking sequence last night. All was seemingly fine after unplugging it for a bit. An online search, though, has me worried that this may be the start of (potentially fatal) power supply issues. Anyone have a clue what that sequence means?
I've got one week left on my 1yr waranty, so I'm a bit concerned! :(

My one take too long to turn on, relay/green light on and off for hours before it can start, I use a hair dryer to heat it up everytime, aim at the center from top, then it turn on very faster, no need to service

The red light blibking 6 times indicates that the power supply board has a defective or damaged area. I know this because i had the same problem...bought a damaged tv for parts and replaced the power supply board as the tv would not turn on...wokrs like a charm now.

I'm having the same issues with my phillips flat panel. I downloaded the firmware update from phillips and that helped...but only once. I'm back to the same issue this morning. But you might try this download...it may work for you.

Try unplugging the TV and then plugging it back in after a bit (at least 10 seconds). In several cases, the TV will start to work for a while.
However, the blinking indicates a part or parts that are getting close to failure. Most often this is 2-4 capacitors on the main board. These can be replaced (either by yourself or by a technician if the TV is under an extended warranty). Radio Shack will have the parts; a site called tvrepairkits.com has many prepackaged sets - check for your model.
I hope this helps.
