Question about Philips Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I am looking to replace my TV with a Flat Screen LCD. This will be used in France in conjunction with a Skybox to receive Free to air transmissions. I believe the system used by the skybox is PAL. Are the Philips sets compatible with both PAL and SECAM (the French system) if purchased in the UK? Will the presence of a free to air tuner (UK) present any problems if used either with the Skybox or French free to air?

Edtwit, In my honest opinion, Philips does more than a campble job of adjusting to skybox's requirements. I would also suggest a adaptor if you find out that you need one of those too.
Overall it should be straight plug and play.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

You will need the DLP chip replaced. I do not recommend trying this on your own on a Mitsubishi. You need a technician who has extensive Mitsubishi experience to replace that chip(if it is available for your particular model) If the chip is not available for your particular model, it means replacing the light engine.For that cost I would update to a LCD or LED TV & come out ahead.
If you want an idea what it costs to replace the DLP chip (if avail for your unit) contact a local servicer & see what they can quote you over the phone. Be sure you are sitting down.
Considering the age of your unit I would be looking at an LCD or LED flat screen.

My son smacked the Tv with a telephone. It looks like the inside of the screen is shattered. Can I replace it?


If it is an older projection tv style= Yes... If it is the newer flat screen such as an LCD then = NO --It is scrap. The display is as much as a new set.

Children sprayed water on 46" lcd TV, and it looks


Oh dear! I would check your household insurance if it was an accident, just in case a replacement is required.
Most items that get wet rarely recover without problems.
The water should not be able to get into the screen as it is a sealed. If the water has not entered the TV, you may get away with wiping the screen with an almost dry cloth that has dilute detergent on it, (washing up liquid and warm water is fine). That will remove the streaks.
Good luck!

We had a power outage and the next day all I could get on my TV was the blinking power light. Can you hellp me? I have a Samsung 42" LCD Flat Panel HDTV Model No. LN T4042N edit


Hi, the power surge has destroyed the power supply board that is located inside your lcd cabinet. this board works in conjunction with an inverter board that regulates the raw ac current that is used for many different functions in your set. Normally, this type of damage will be isolated within the power supply but, it could have spread to the main control board as well, depending on how well the surge protector preformed during the surge.

The good news is that, this is a repairable situation. you can replace the power supply circuit board and inverter board as well. these replacements will fix this issue.

please rate and god bless:)

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
