Philips consumer electronics recalls about 11,800 plasma flat panel televisions with Ambilight Feature sold at consumer electronic stores nationwide from June 2005 through January 2006 for between $3,000 and $5,000..

Philips has received nine reports of arcing by the capacitors inside the left and right side of the back cabinets of these TVs, which can pose a safety risk. The results of such incidents were contained within the TVs due to the use of flame retardant materials resulting only in damage to the TV. There have been no injuries reported.

The recall involves only certain 42 and 50 inch, 2005 model Philips branded Plasma Flat Panel Televisions with Ambilight technology, which is an ambient lighting feature that projects a soft light onto the wall behind the TV to enhance the display.
