42" hdtv Philips tv sound
Problem is in either power supply or the Y-Sustain board.
The Y-Sustain is a relatively large board out of which go connections to the side of the display; it's therefore closer to either the left or the right side of the display, has at least one rather large heat sink on it and fat power cables connecting it to the main power supply.
Often there are fuses on that board - one or more. Check those.
if they are blown you can try to replace them, but expect them to blow again - usually the whole board needs to be replaced.
often that *needs* to be done in a service center as there are some adjustments to be made after replacement; don't know about this particular TV model.
Hope this helpout........

I have a Philips Plasma tv 42pf5321d/37 with sound but no picture
Thats the great sound of Exploding capacitors on either the power supply board. or another one in there. Now the set is in fault protection. It tried to warn you with the RED blinking LED that there was something amiss by shutting itself down. When you unplugged you reset the error and allowed it to do it again.
Best Regards and Smper Fi

Will not turn on
The red light will flash a code. If it's 3 there are bad caps on the power supply. 2 big ones bulged near the edge. If the light flashes 7 times it needs a Y-Drive and can be a costly repair. Both are common, and remember if there's any doubt take it to a pro. Goodluck.

My 42PFP5332D/37 will not turn on. Yes it is
for using FixYa. A plasma TV is a very hard working device. It is
working harder than any TV that has been built before, and as a result it
produces a lot of heat. 75% of technical problems in plasma TV's are caused by
overheating problems. You’ll need to check the power supply board first for any
swollen/bulged capacitors. As power supply board is the hardest working board
in a plasma TV, it develops voltage to supply all components, high current +
high voltage. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise
& know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high
voltages even when switched off. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post
a comment for further assistance.

I have a 42 inch
Kindly tell me few more details :-
1. The position of the strip remains the same or not?
2. In the last few weeks,is there any change in dimension of the strip?
3. When you bring TV menu option, the strip is above or below that?

Static while on, logic board led flashing, normal startup no pic
Above is your user manual, below that is a pay for link for your service manual.
Below is a link for a FREE services manual
Below, is a thread, discussing this tv and some issues, perhaps this will be of assistance.
I have included these manuals so you can get to grips with it all, anbd if you intend to try to repair yourself, not really recommended, then at least you have the most important tool, the service and repair manual.
You see, with just this symptom, it is nearly impossible to tell what the
exact "Cause" of this symptom is. The LED's do not tell us what, exactly what is
wrong, sometimes it may indicate the "Area", just say in your case, it indicates the X board. BUT thats NOT where the
"Fault is" thats just the part that is affected. We MUST find the damage, and repair, and, also the cause of the damage, usually never one in the same. These days unlike
the "Old" analogue days it
just isn't realistically possible to fix anything but the most basic of
problems with todays sophisticated units. This is quite apart from the Safety
aspect, any unit that can cause a firs or have an explosion, or both, is NOT to
be treated lightly, and and the
repairer, of the unit is legally responsible, another thing to think
about. Also, one must have tools, a Multimeter, a soldering iron, a deslodering
iron, an oscilloscope, a signal tracer, tools, and most important of all, a
Service Manual, without which, there is
no way to even begin to understand and fix it, and more importantly Program it,
AFTER it has been fixed. As these days a TV, is
a PC, a Tuner, and an HDTV Monitor, and more, all in one. in the "old" days TV"s were
more, rudimentary, and built to last for
20 years, and a "Parts" supply was set aside. They usually used to fail for only a few
reasons, and they while still difficult, were less difficult to repair.
Electrical knowledge was transferable, and they could be and would respond to,
This-is-the-symptom-This-us-the-Fix, But that no longer applies, as now, it can
be a Fault on I squared Bus, or "Sensor" failure, or it simple may
have "Crashed" just like a PC,
It could be a Diode go bad, and that will stop the whole thing. You see,
in the day, the sets were Very "Fault Tolerant" because they were
Analouge, and a faulty, component, or
more sometimes, the set would always diplay something usually, and when they
didn't it was one of only a few things, sure there are always the horrid ones,
and there are pleanty of those, but all in all it was quite easy. But with Digital
Electronics, it either goes, or it doesnt, there are usualy few half measures.
I mean thats the definition of logic either going or not. So it can take very
little to completely paralyse a set, and generally give the only sysmptom, it
can, by not working, usually No picture, or the like. So you, see the list is
endless almost for any given SYMPTOM, as that is what is being seen, not the
cause, as I keep going on about. Also
any fault, usually involves the Power Supply, it is either the cause, the cause
of the damage, or it is damaged. or ALL of them. Then after you have done the
electronic repairs, you then must program the set to work, and align, and set
up in general, any one of those settings missed or done wrong, back to square
So, it is
nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a
"Quote" form the manufacturers
recommended service center, Philips ion your case, please contact a local or head office, and ask for a referral to an Authorised Service Center. Now, I cannot stress how important that last point is.
It is even worth the cost of shipping. you see an authorised service agent, they will have trained staff, trained on their (Your) brand, also they have first hand
access to parts, original parts, too. . This will actually save you money and ensure
you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote"
also gives on the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go
through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs
they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option.
As an aside here, one could then tear the TV down, and sell the Known Good
bits. You'd be surprised who needs
parts, i myself often must by from third party sources to effect a repair. So
money could be recouped, somewhat,and help
out someone else. Below is a forum that you may find helpful.
