Hi huttleywoof,

I've had the same problem 1 week ago. Bought new wirewound ceramic resistors (5w 6.8 ohms) and replaced the old ones.... It helped to majority of people who had the same problem, but mine has now some other issues with appearing diffrent colors on the screen which are not supposed to be there :) Like all goes blask with few red pixels or green :-) Having fun now and can;t find service manuals for this TV :(

Hi,

To my knowledge your Philips 42PF9945 is capable of a maximum of 852 x 480screen resolution at 50Hz. It is TV standard but pretty low for PC work, that being the case, perhaps what is required is for you to lower the Screen Resolution as well as the Screen refresh Rate of the laptop. They may be found in the display properties (Control Panel) or right click on any clear area of your desktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I can't watch TV....! help....



Hello, I came across several times in this type of malfunction, stems from primary circuit of the power supply unit. I solved it by replacing the 5W ceramic resistor. In another case I came across electrolytic capacitors that i had to replace in the same circle. I hope it was helpful!

Menu Screen Keeps Coming up on the screen


The most commom causes are One. There ia a stuck button on the tv itself. The Menu button. The membrane switch or the TACT switch is bad and needs to be replaced. The Main bd can also be bad.

Tele will not stay on


The tv has an error code thats its way of telling you there is something wrong so it shuts itself down to protect itself. I would have it looked at or call philips and they can tell you what that means. hope that helps.
