My roommate purchased a Philips 42” Plasma TV for her bedroom three years ago. The TV worked great until a few weeks ago when the TV started not powering up; hitting the power button would turn the power indicator LED greed for a few seconds, and then it would flash red seven times.
I removed the back from my TV and it looks fairly intimidating:
A slow review of the mainboard revealed he capacitors mentioned on the posts; and they are blown…
The Capacitors are electrolytic 3300UF, 10V 105C units. The part on DigiKey is P13117-ND. I ordered four of these (two for extras in case I mess one up or one is damaged before delivery) and they are being delivered USPS priority mail. They should be here by the end-of-the-week.
I have pulled the power supply board and I will install the new ones when they arrive. I will post an update after all is done.
