Question about Philips Televison & Video

Open Question

I have aphilips 37" TV model 37pf55200/10. It is two years old and it is jumping from 1 channel to another when watching the built in free view. It also shows green squares for a few seconds every now and then. I was watching free view last night , when at 11.15 i got "System software update in progress" this should last approx 45 mins. It is 11.44 the following day and it is STILL showing that message. I can't view any channel. It doesn't appear to be doing anything at all. Please advise. (I no longer have a receipt for the TV) but there is obviously a fault. Who do i contact ?. Is the update a common thing and how do i get my tv to work again. This was a lot of money and feel after two years i should NOT be having these problems as we went with a reputable company.

some of these tvs have internal adjustments for everything including alignment which fixes the double image problem. if you remove the cover you will find a lot of little adjustment dials. you may find that they have symbols that show what the adjustment is for. if you want more info. email me at sb1216us@yahoo.com

According to several sites, the problem is with the convergence via the voltage on the color ray gun tubes that get out of adjustment. They are also known as retrace lines

Sony wanted between $150-$300 to diagnose and fix -- instead I was able to complete this repair in less than 15 minutes!
Since I had been through the routine once more and I was sure others are running into this issue,
1. All you need to complete this guide is one flat-head screwdriver and one Phillips screwdriver as well as a delicate touch.
2. Front shot of the television. Their are two screw holes on the front of the unit near the edge of each side right next to the speaker grille.

3. Close up shot of the screw hold. It is covered by a plastic cover that has two tabs holding it in. Carefully pry them out with your flat head screwdriver. Do not apply too much pressure or you can break the tabs off. Once the covers are removed, unscrew the two screws with a Philips screwdriver.

4. To remove the cover, pull from the bottom of the front case and rotate towards you. Once you rotate it out, the top will disconnect and come loose. Do not pull it off, as there are cords attached. (see picture) Loosen the cables attached with the twist ties and set the front cover to the left side.

5. With the speaker grille and cover removed, you now need to remove the wood panel to expose the inner electronics on your Sony HD TV. To do this, remove the four Philips head screws from the panel. Then, pulling from the right, rotate the panel off and the electronics will be exposed.

6. This is a picture of the inner electronics of your Sony Rear-Projection High Definition television. The little black box towards the front of the unit is where we will concentrate our time as it is the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment.
6_voltage_projection_red_blue_green.jpg

7. When focused in on the controls, you want to concentrate on the bottom row for the voltage / ray gun projection adjustment. The colors are labeled below and from left to right are blue, green, and red. Choose the one that needs to be adjusted and turn ever so slightly with your Philips screwdriver to remove the lines. In my case, the red just needed to be turned 1/8 of a rotation to be back in adjustment. Do not turn to quickly or abruptly or you could possibly damage your TV by varying the voltage too quickly.

My baird 42 inch hd tv has built in free view but


You need to find out if Free View is in your area. It could be a bad reception due to hills or you're not in direct line of the signal transmitted. There are a lot of reasons why, but one thing for sure is that if you got Free View in your area and you don't get the signal, you can always find out from your neighbours who also have Free View. Sometimes it's better to grab a lifeboat before you jump ship.

I want to buy HD ready lcd TV (resolution 1366x768 and not full HD with 1080p). IS MY OPINION CORRECT? I do not have good quality/HDsources (DVDs, BluRays), because I rather download a 700 MB or rather...


I would go with one of those tv's in your price range. Given the sources you are watching both of them should meet up to your needs and carry you through until you may need a "higher quality" tv. Either one would be a good choice for your needs.
Thanks,

LG RH266 setup with freeview tv


Sorry to say no it wont not unless the Tv set manuel says it has a Duel Freeview feed , you have to get another freeview box for the recorder .
besides If you used the freview in the tv 1 , the tv would have to be on when you wanted to record ?. and 2 you couldnt watch another channel whilst recording another .. only 1 tuner ?. also you could only record the program you had on .at the time no timer facility .
People are still used to the Old system of VHs and the fact that all videos had tuners built in so you could watch and record .. It will come and indeed some more modern DVD recorder have freeview built in again sorry but thats the facts , and dont forget if you want the pay per view channels on free view your going to need a tuner with a pay card port ...
