Hello, I'm new to the forum.
4 days ago a friend of mine gave my a faulty Philips plasma TV, and hoping I could at least try attempting to fix it, I took it off his hands.
The model of this TV is 42PF7520D/10.
I made a video and uploaded it on Youtube showing how the TV behaves when plugged into the outlet (I tried to remain as still and silent as possible so that hopefully somebody here or on Youtube could identify at least a bit of the problem by the clicks)
Strangely enough, the TV never behaves the same each time its plugged in. Sometimes the green power LED turns on and the power remains on for a few minutes (without the backlight or panel turning on, only the LED) then goes into a cycle where the power LED turns on and off every few minutes, and sometimes the TV displays what I believe is the error code using the power LED (The error code is on the video, please take a look).
The backlight of the TV turns on and it looks as if its about to say 'No signal' however, before anything happens, it turns off after 3 seconds max.
I checked the caps on the power board, they all seem to be fine .. none of them are bulging or looking as if theyve blown.
I would be willing to buy a power board for this TV, however, they are extremely rare due to the fact that the TV is from somewhere around 2004-2005.
Thanks for reading, any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
