20 Most Recent Hitachi 32HDT20 32 in. Plasma Television Questions & Answers


Hi dpparker

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV. I may have the solution to your problem.


Here was MY problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you to consider.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It will, at the very least, give you a general idea of the process. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem.


Hope this helps.

If you have any questions for me, please comment on this page. I will be happy to assist you to the best of my ability. Thanks for using Fixya.

This looks like a problem with the LCD backlight of the tv. Do you have a dull glow on the screen after the picture goes out? If you don't then its confirmed. The part is inexpensive and relatively easy to replace. Just in case you wanna do it yourself, then let me know.

You should only ever take the back of any electrical device if you know what you are doing. A lot of people have been electrocuted whilst working on electrical devices or they have cause damage leaving the TV useless. If you know someone that has has experience of disassembling electrical devices or repairing them, ask them to do the cleaning.

Use code search on your URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.
