I am trying to resuscitate a dead picture frame for my father-in-law. It is a Philips model 7FF1, and was purchased a few years ago. It is totally dead. I have tried hooking it up to my computer and turning the on/off switch repeatedly but the screen is blank. I inserted a new photo card with some test pictures to see if it might help but still the screen stays dark. I tried resetting the frame by pushing a pin in the little reset hole, but no luck. None of the FAQs seems to address this problem so I am writing you. Let me know if you can breathe life into this machine.

1. Turn the frame off. 2. Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet. 3. Remove any memory card or flash disk from the frame. 4. Connect the power cable directly to a wall outlet. 5. Turn the frame on. 6. Use a paper clip to press the button inside the pinhole on the back of the frame.
If after trying the above steps and the frame still have the same problem, then we need to send the frame in for a repair as per warranty guidelines.
Your frame will be repaired per warranty guidelines.A product is warranted for 1 year from the date-of-purchase.

It depends on how big the existing pictures are. It has a 14MB internal memory, but it says about 12MB for storage. You can buy memory card to insert into the frame but it will not display internal memory once you insert a new memory card. If you bought a 512MB card, you could put hundreds to thousands of pictures in JPG format. You can hook the frame to your computer or directly to a digital camera. From the computer it takes a few seconds to convert the pictures. The frame will show up on your PC as a mass storage device and you will be able to delete photos as well.
Buy a new television. The "bulbs" are actually small picture tubes, also referred to as CRT's or guns. There are three of them, Red, Green and Blue. The cost for the tubes alone will probably exceed the original purchase price of the television. If the new tubes do not have the lens assembly attached, then you will need to transfer the old ones. This involves draining, cleaning, and refilling the coolant chambers. Once installed in the set, there is a series of mechanical and electrical adjustments required, to get the picture aligned or converged. This procedure is not recommended for the inexperienced. If cost and time are not an issue, then everything can probably be found on the Internet. Simply search the web for your model number. You will need the remainder of the model number first. There are at least eight models starting with 46PP9302. You are missing three additional characters. Discouraged yet?
