Can you clarify your concern? What software upgrades do you need. And do you need them for your projection TV?

Hi can i upgrade software for 42pf5331 plasma and if then how

If you are not seeing ANY issues with the current software then don't try any updates as trying the incorrect version or attempting incorrectly will render the set totally useless and will require a main board replacement (cost of 300 and up). Unlike software updates on a computer, there is NO roll back feature.

My phillips 1080 37" tv was working fine then all of a sudden the sound starts to turn itself up, no jam in remote control

First reset the television by unplugging it from the wall outlet - see if problem persists. If the problem does persist, then go to and enter in your exact model number. go to the software and drivers section for your model. If your model has a software upgrade, then a software upgrade should resolve. You will just need a USB memory stick to get the file from your computer to the television - remember, only transfer the file called "autorun.upg" or whatever to the memory stick, not the entire zip folder.

If the model does not have a software and drivers section, it is b/c the TV is lacking a USB port. In that case, check the sound menu and turn off delta volume and AVL - see if sound behaves normally after that.

If none of the above works, then call Philips to get it serviced.

Upgrade software for philips 52' lcd flat screen

Unless there is a specific issue that a firmware upgrade will solve, don't upgrade. Upgrades if interrupted can do damage to the control board rendering the set useless.

Will not download

Make sure you are following the software upgrade instructions exactly. Instead of sending the whole ZIP file to the memory stick, just send the individual file, and make sure that there are no other files on the memory stick. Then try upgrading again - don't forget to wait at leats 2 mins before declaring the upgrade a success or not.

Upgrade for Hitachi 51F59A

The slot in the back of your TV is for upgrading the software version . It is like flashing the bios on a computer. If you are
having HDMI issues such as loss of audio, audio out of sync, color problems, intermittant shut off, snowy pix Etc. you may have to upgrade. Hitachi is aware of certain issues and they have downloads available to solve conflicts as they are identified.
