Phillips 42 Lcd screen cracked is it just Phillips Lcd tv screens that fit or does any 42 Lcd fit


Not going to use one from another set even if same brand, frankly this is usually a waste of time as if the screen was damaged and the set was on or was at any time after powered up one or more boards in that set may now also be bad.

Buy a new set.

My 42" flat screen phillips


I'd post TV model number first - it's on the back of the TV -and I'd also post a picture if I could.

The lines on the screen do not usually go with the "channel not available" problem and the likelyhood of you having both at the same time is , well, small.

Pixilization on non hd channels with hdmi cable connected to HDPVR receive. HD channels come in crystal clear, non hd channels are all bitmapped and horrible


Your TV is not at fault, it is showing you the difference between HD and non HD channels. HD TV's work great with HD scorces but don't usually look that great with standard definition, Also the non-HD channels are more likely to be heavily compressed which makes them look bad too.

We had the same thing happen to us on the right-hand side. A technician told us yesterday that the Motorola Cable Box (supplied by Shaw Cable) places a border on Non-True HD Channels. Because we didn't place our picture setting to 'full-screen' each time we viewed these channels and burn line was created. He gestimated a replacement screen runs about $800.00 Canadian, but we have a 3 year extended warranty and will receive a new TV. He also said it happens on all big screen tv's that use a cable box creating borders on Non-True HD Channels.

Picture Size problem with Samsung Flat panel LN-T3253H


You should contact Samsung service to know if the internal setup for the picture sizing was not adjusted properly at the factory.

Take care that some of these sets have a user zoom mode. Maybe it is in the zoom mode. Check in your instruction manual before calling for service support.
