Question about Philips 42PF9631D 42 in. Plasma Television
I have a Philips Flat Screen TV, Model # 42PF9630A/37. I believe it is a 42" screen. Today, it would not turn on. It has a blinking red light next to the green light that tells you when it is on. I have unplugged it, several times, trying to reset it. When I do this the green light will come on briefly then it goes to the red blinking light again. What does this mean?

Capacitors in Power Supply Board bulging. Replace and fix the problem.

The only thing I can suggest outside of taking the television to get repaired is a hail-mary firmware update. To be honest, the firmware update process is fairly complicated and lengthy. You can download the firmware and find instructions for it here.
Look on the right hand side for firmware information.
This TV is likely outside of its 1 year manufacturer's warranty so you would have to pay any and all repairs. Before deciding to do a repair you might try calling Philips. For a while they were offering a service to customers like yourself with out of warranty units. They would offer to sell you a more up to date model at a discount. I'm not sure they still do this but its worth a shot.
Hope that helps!
