My phillips 42 inch plasma tv just clicks when I

My phillips 42 inch plasma tv is 2 years old and  just clicks when I turn it on.It would click for about 30 minutes and then come on, but yesterday it did not come on at all. I read on line that this is a problem with the lamp or ballast. The lamp could cost $110 to $175. What should I expect to pay a technician? If it's more than the lamp what else could it be? What is the ballast?

SOURCE: Phillips 42in plasma lines ocross screen

Are the solid horizontal black lines or colored lines. If colored lines there is a posibility that your Y-main, and upper and lower Y-buffers are bad. If black you have a bad plasma panel.

I had the same problem and fixed with a great online tutorial. Just replace 3 capacitors available at Radioshack onthe the board. 2662, 2663, 2664 1 is a 1000uf the others are 100uf. Max Volts need to be over 25. It worked great, check http://dynamicorange.com/2008/06/25/fixing-a-plasma-tv/
for more detail.

SOURCE: Phillips 42 In Plasma Blinking Red Light Only

blinking link means there is a problem with the software -- usually this is caused when a fuse goes bad or the power supply board needs to be replaced due to a problem --- most repair places replace the whole board - nobody fixed one broken part

My Phillips flat screen model 42fd9935/17 has started going black after playing for about 2 hours... you can still hear the sound, but the screen is black... the picture will come back after turning the tv...

The cost of getting this plasma fixed is not costwise compared to getting a new TV. I recommend NOT to get another plasma but get either an LCD or LED for the best quality compared with price. Plasma parts can be quite expensive especially for a 10 year old model or may not be available.

Will not power on

This will bge faulty capacitors in the power supply, Take the back of the TV and check the power board for capacitors that are bulged /swollon on top, they may also leak a brown like substance, usually they are around 1000uf / 10v

Change any that look suspect and if capacitor related this will resolve your issue.
Hope this helps

Having problems turning on 2 year old Phillips

Philips TVs tend to have issues with bad capacitors in their power supplies. Failing capacitors tend to have slightly different ESR (equivalent series resistance) values when they have been left off, versus after they are warmed up and charged up. Either a new power supply board or replacement of the faulty capacitors will fix the problem.
