You can fix this yourself with a software upgrade - get the upgrade from Philips website - go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter your model number, click on the verison of your model ending in /37, and click on "Software & Drivers"; click on the link that says "Firmware Upgrade - Software".
Instructions are on the same page - make sure you only transfer the .upg file, not the entire zip file to a portable memory stick.

Hi guys, I have the same model, and after reasing the manual a little closer and skimming the setup menu I've discovered that it's not actually a built in ambient light, it's actually a setting in the picture menu under "active control" that measures the ambient light in the room and adjusts the picture quality accordingly to ensure the best contrast and reduce glare/reflect imaging. Hope this helps....

probably you got a processing unit problem, which makes your tv stopping recognizing the screen information .
you should try resetting all factory default settings, if this doesn't work, you will have to take the TV to an assistance center .

This is quite tricky as it was working until last night and suddenly stopped receiving signals. What can happen wrong?
Do you have any other Player or other HDMI cables to try out. Sometimes the cables would be damaged or PC may fail to detect the HDMI.
Try this out from Philips helpdesk where there is new SW and FAQs are available.
Let me know if you are not able to upgrade the FW (if you do not get the support on ugprading)

It is unlikely that all the bulbs have failed at once and more likely that the ballast unit for that side has failed.
If they are available as a spare part they will be listed on ebay as the bakkast unit for your model/size TV or on the manufacturers web site through an authorized repair centre.
Hope that helps.
