Question about Philips 32PF5531D 32 in. LCD Television
We have an LCD TV (model 32PF5531D/10) its about 2 years old now but about 6 months ago it got a dark shadow like mark on the screen. It is now covering about 3/4 of the screen and is very annoying when watching the TV. The longer the TV is on and gets warmer the worse the picture gets. We have never over wetted the screen or used chemicals on it (to the best of my knowledge. Any help would be gratefully received.
The drak Shadow mark I see on my Screen looks like the black soot like marks you see at the end of a flourescent tube. I think it is the back light.

Try to "whitewash" your screen. it's taking it back to the old settings by running it on the black/white alternating pattern on each pixel. "whitewash" it for one hour and then power the television down for 1 hour to allow everything to cool. restart and see if the shadows have disappeared.

This could be caused by the invertor or the backlight. I have the same problem and thats what I have been advised is causing it. I need to source a new backlight to try it out.
