I have an old Philips Plasma (ambilight) model 42PF9631D/37
Hi - I have an old Philips Plasma (ambilight) model 42PF9631D/37 that has screen and sound problems. The screen slowly slowly became pixelated is how I would describe it - usually green, but sometimes would look like 'burn in', then after being on several hours sometimes it would just suddenly disappear and picture would be perfect, but then it would come back. I talked to a repair guy and he said he would not repair it cuz probably would not last another year. BUT, a friend just repaired their TV themselves so it got me thinking maybe I could too. I have no idea what parts to replace, though.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Philips is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: THe model is exactly what I typed above, and it was purchased in 2006 I believe.JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: YesJA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: it started several years ago and started only at the edges when it was black/dark, then just progressively and slowly got worseJA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: only that sometimes the sound would not work, also -the sound would come on or go off when the channel was changed. So if it was off, i would change the channel and the sound would come back on.

When the TV is switched on, after an hour or so the screen
When the TV is switched on, after an hour or so the screen just switches off then comes back automatically after a few seconds. It then runs OK for a time and then goes off again. This happens a few times a night.

Just a bunch of pixels near the top and some near the edges. Is it the abus address boards? the unit is a 42 inch plasma with ambilight and pixel plusso far I have tried turning on and off, unplugging. Initially the blue light would come on and then go to red and off.
