In stock


Coppell TV Repair LLC offers replacement modules for a common problem found in PHILIPS 42PFL7422D/37 and caused by failing inverter boards providing the light for the LCD.

Typical failure symptoms and other important details are covered in the sections below.

The boards you will receive are new OEM VIT71043.50 and VIT71043.51 or 100% OEM compatible ones.

Many TV manufacturers tend to change displays and backlight panels in the middle of their production process and as a result many times the same TV model may come out with different internals. The differences are usually impossible to tell from the outside, but may be significant internally (i.e. replacing a Samsung display made in Korea with theoretical equivalent made by another company in China).

Philips 42PFL7422D/37 is known to use two different sets of inverters which are NOT compatible with each other - the ones shown in the picture of this listing and the infamous pair 6632L-0470A and 6632L-0471A for which we also sell replacements.

Before placing an order please open up your TV and make sure you order the right pair for your set.

We will not be covering expenses caused by confusion on customers' end!

Failure symptoms

A failed backlight inverter in PHILIPS 42PFL7422D/37 can have the following manifestations in order of likelyhood based on our experience:

1) Show display for a few short seconds after powering on the TV, usually accompanied with a loud buzzing sound, then the display gets dark and the TV continues to work; if configured on the right input and supplied with signal the TV would produce normal sound

2) Sometimes the failure may come to a point - at once or over time - where the display will not get backlight even for a short while; it may come up dark from the beginning. Sound may still be or not be present.

3) In some not so common cases the inverters can fail and short in a way that would prevent the TV from coming up as the power supply board would detect the shortage and turn itself off. If you doubt this is the case the simplest way to verify it is to disconnect the backlight inverter boards supply from the power, which would eliminate the shortage. If the TV comes up and stays on (without backlight, of course) then this is likely the problem.
