    Have you checked the refresh rates on your video card?

    New monitor or used ?? Did you check in the screen menu to see if there is a movie or gaming mode ?

    Some of these newer larger monitors offer that feature.

HI
This may not help, but you can try to lower the resloution to another widescreen format.
I'm thinking you may have your resolution maxed out and the video card is having problems with the movie games because of that. Possibly not enough video memory
Movies will work fine at lower resolutions, Not sure about all the games but they probably will too.

No video signal comes on screen when watching movies and playing games in video 1 signal


Look for any loose contacts in RC jacks/sockets/Cable. Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Windows 7 requires One Gigabyte of RAM to even run. You are most likely running out of memory when you're playing games and/or watching video. I would suggest upgrading your memory on your computer, if you're on the cheap, or if you can afford to do so, invest in a new machine.

1. How do I watch the same movie on both screens on the Philips PET9422 37 9 in. Dual screen DVD players? 2. I bought a refurbished model but did not get a user's manual. How do I get one?


hi,
You can do the following to watch the same moving in both the screen.
1.Connect the AV out of both the unit together. with supplied av cord

2. If you want to watch the movie played on the first unit then put the DVD/AV IN switch of first monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of second one to AV IN.Now you can watch the movie played on the first monitor on both monitors.

3. IF you want to watch movie played on the second unit then put DVD/AV IN switch of second monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of the first monitor to AV IN. Now you can watch the movie played on the second monitor on both monitors.

I have the manual of the same . As it is large pdf file can't sent through fixya. If you can sent your email id through fixya will sent you the manual
ok

Hi there!

Yes, it requires flash player like adobe flash player to be able to play games, watch movies online, listen to movies and others. Just go to the adobe flash player website http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ and click install to install it directly or go to www.youtube.com and he will ask that it needs flash player. Adobe flash download icon will appear or link will appear and just click the download link and it will directly installed it to your computer. That all and your problem it solve. Enjoy watching movies or listen songs if you want.

I hope it helps you.

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

Ps3 will not play any movies


 think your lens may be very dirty. And also please tell if the problem is only with this movie or all the other movies as well? 
moreover, if your lens is dirty, you'll have to clean it using a lens cleaner, OR get it replaced lens). 
I got my PlayStation's lens replaced when it was giving me trouble and all was fine after that. 
Best of luck.

Bought a new 42' flat - "No Program or Weak Signal"


Hi,you have not said weather you are using a scart lead(euro connecter)or an RF lead,if you are using the later don't,please connect the vcr to the tv via the scart to scart euro connecters,use a good quality scart lead(the thicker the better)as the thicker ones generally are 21 pins connected meaning it should be auto switching so as soon as you play a tape it will come straight on.

Most if not all DVD's are 16 by 9 even in 4.3 mode you are going to have those bars on this TV. Some television have a zoom feature to get rid of that but not this one.
