First thing to do is determine if there is a blink code as that gives a direction for t/s. regardless, what you should do first is offload the y main and x main sustain boards from power supply one at a time as there is a common issue where these boards can cause load on power supply and if voltages come up with either one offloaded that board should be replaced before proceeding. if y main is the issue there is an upper and lower buffer board to left of that board and also should be replaced at same time as 3 boards complete a circuit and replacing one could cause damage to others.

Have a Philips 42PFP5332D/37 TV. I just moved and after I plugged it in and hit the start on button. The blue blue comes on for a couple of seconds and turns into a red light that flashes 6 times


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Counting of number of blinks to Philips TVs is entirely different to that of other brand TVs. It is not a direct count procedure. The site have details about how to count the number of LED blinks [Fault Codes] to Philips brand TVs are given; along with details of the faulty circuit location.

The red standby light flashes and when the power button is pushed the green light comes on with a clicking soung then it turns back off and the red standby light starts flashing again


One of the boards (module) has a short on it, and or the power supply itself is failing.
The service center will find the fault using the process if elimination. They will replace the bad boards or modules as required to get the set working again.

My philips 42PFP5332D/37 keeps making a clicking sound, it wont turn on, and like most other post i have read, the blue power light stays on, but nothing more..it just keeps clicking, its been doing this...


I had the same problem and it was the power supply board,but I replaced it myself and only spent about $140.00 for the part and 2 day shipping . It was easy just pull the back cover off and there are about 8 small screws that hold it on and like 6 connectors that's it. Also ShopJimmy.com was the place for parts on these T.V.'s.

Hi thanks for replying


The clicks you are referring to sound like High Voltage Leaks or Arcing. While it is clicking check for sparks around the high voltage transformer only with your eyes from a distance. If you see sparks shut it off immediately.
