I had the same problem, I had to send it back to Philips to get a $900 part replaced. Thankfully I had the warranty with it.

This is because the power switch operated the socket that your TV is plugged into. Unplug it and plug it in another socket that is not operated by a switch. Appliances should not be plugged into a socket operated by a switch because of the inconsistency of power to the socket. Lights are about the only thing that should be plugged in.

I have seen services offered by some box stores to "calibrate" the color on televisions. (It was not a cheap procedure.) Is there a problem with a the picture? Did you reset the tv to factory settings and you still do not like the picture quality?

Clear picture but white noise and static?!!!!!. What do you say?. Check whether the audio is muted by accidental press at remote control button. Enter its sound menu, and check it. If muted, as you know there will be no audio output. If not muted, check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Hi, Simply attaching the cable isn't always enough. Sometimes you actually have to tell the laptop to display via HDMI or DVI onto your external monitor or it will not output any signal.

Try pressing Windows Key+P, this will change your presentation settings in Windows (What screens you get a display on and how they are displayed). Cycle through to either "projector only" or "duplicate screens" and see if you get a display on your TV then.

Sounds like the main board is faulty. No SDA - SCL signals.
