Question about Philips 42PF5521D 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
SOURCE: HDMI input damaged?
This is a very common problem with the HDMI input. The cables seem to be very heavy and pull down on the input on the set, which doesn't have anything holding it down except the solder on the pins. I would not consider blaming any customer of negligence for this repair. When I do a service call for this problem, the charge of the repair is covered by the manufacture or the extended service company. If the service center are the people that told you that they would be charging you, then, contact the warranty company and get another servicer in your area to do the job. You should not be charged for this repair no matter how many times you changed the cable.

This TV has the ability to upgrade firmware from any standard USB thumb-drive. Here is a link to the Philp's site that has the instructions as well as the link to download the newest firmware:

Look For TWO 10 Volt 33000 mfd. Caps That Appear To Be Swollen,They Are Next To Each Other At The Bottom Of The Power Supply Board, Change Them To 16 Volt Versions.

SOURCE: Philips Tv won't power on.......
Try plugging in the USB drive and HOPE that the P.O.S.T. during that 2 second period grabs the upgrade, but I must tell you that this is a hail-mary pass.
After that, it's DOAville!!

Buy a HDTV that has HDCP
capabilities. Most will have this in at least one HDMI input but be
sure to verify this before buying the TV.
Notice that "in
at least one port." Not every HDMI port on the TV will be HDCP
compliant so be sure to read your TV user manual if you plan on
connecting a HDMI cable to your TV.
