Question about Insignia 42" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV
My tv won't turn on. the green light just flashes when i try to turn it on and if its on stand by mode the red light flashes 4 times then off then 4 flashes, same reps for the green light too. I'm in the UK
Temporary solution to the troubled Phillips 50" Model 50PF9431D/37.
I am really dissapoint w/ this vendor and wished that I went w/ my experience rather than the sales price. I bought that TV for almost two years and was happy until one day it shut down itself and the light indicator on left bottom corner flashed repeatedly in red 7 times and continued until I unplugged the power cord. I called Phillips co. and was told to send to local repair shop which I didnot bother because we all know how much it cost to fix electronics things nowadays.
The workaround is to have a fan blowing behind the TV and it will work sometimes for a whole day, the other time for 1/2 hour.
I am looking to buy another one but of Sony model. I have had old CRT Sony TV that still works for 25 years. That is the brand you all should go with.

I have come accross a lot of complaints regarding philips tv's, with premature failures the common ailment. I have filed a complaint at the following:

My 42" Philips TV will start, then shut down. I need to hold the power button until it powers all the way on, even so, it will still shut down sometimes. Usually, after 2 or 3 times of this power on sequence, it will finally stay on. I noticed, when the power on fails, the picture is pixelated. Any guess to a solution.

Don't buy philips and tell everyone you know not to buy their products...my plasma went out a bit after 3 years...total **** and would love a class action lawsuit. Of course we would get a $20 coupon to purchase a new philips and the lawers would get 30 million

Error 4 indicates a communcation error between SSB and logic board. Which your problem is goning to be the BGA IC.
It will be cheaper to just get a new TV. But if u want to try and order one look online at parts.com.

I have a 37" that was given to me by my sister. I had a repair man come out ($50) and tell me that it would cost $380 to fix the issue because it was the power supply and the circuit board supply (whatever that is???). You can get a 32" Visio for under $400 brand new. Talk about Throw Away technology! I am staying away from Phillips in the future.

There are two or three faulty (bulged) capacitor on the main power board, change these and all will be good. Andrew Eve
