Question about Philips 60PP9753 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No HD picture from AV4 or AV3

I have sound when connected to either input but there is no real picture. There is "scrolling color lines" no actual picture scrolling. Problem started when the power to house was going on and of during a t-storm. Picture works fine from AV1 and the side input. Have tried new DVI cord and other video cables for AV 3, no luck. I tried unpligging the tv for a few minutes, no help. Then unplugged the tv overnight, no help.

Re: No HD picture from AV4 or AV3

You power supply has a problem in it. If the electric ever starts to go on and off again, you really should disconnect the main to the house or purchace a standby power supply for the TV set like the ones peeps use for their computers. They are inexpensive these days and they really do work and save lots of money. Now about the TV set. Without a service manual and the know how to work on solid state electronics and printed circuit board, you should seek out the assistance of a service person for this type of repair, unless you do know how to use a multimeter and read a schematic diagram. Good Luck PS Please dont forget to rate this thread.

Idk if my tv is digtal ready it says its hd

The TV will provide an HD picture with a set top box connected to the HD input (AV4 or AV5). It does not have a digital tuner (only a NTSC analog tuner).

The manual is available here: . See appendix B on page 58 for the specifications.

I hope this helps.

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.

Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

Your DVD player may be set up to put out a different mode. Are you using the component cables or s-video? If it's the component cables, make sure you're player is putting out 480p. Also, try it with another set to see of you can localize the problem.

Sound but no picture

You say AV4, is this the HD part? And if so, then have you checked the video board area?

Composite and s-video inputs stopped working

You may have shifted the input board a little while replaceing the IC's. Double check every plug and connector, not just by visuale inspection, but by going and removing and replacing every connector. I have had problems like this in the pasy and have learned the hard way, everything is not as it looks. Good Luck
