Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

My 50 inch Philips Plasma TV is normally connected to a Virgin Media HD Box in order to watch TV programmes. Tonight my TV is showing a box that is called Information, and it has the wording No signal or bad signal condition. Please check antenna connection and position. I have attempted to switch the TV off and unplug it from the mains, however the remote control and when pressing the buttons at the side of the TV nothing is happening. When I first switch the TV set on the power light is flashing blue. After a while it stops flashing but still does not respond to the buttons being pressed.

    Thanks but already tried that. I can now get my TV to work but the blue light now flashes on and off for about an hour and I get the source list on the screen. When I try to adjust the volume it goes nuts on me again so think the problem may lie in the buttons on the side of the TV

Unplug both the set and box from power for a while--either may have caused a glitch---power both back with everything already connected and see if the reboot that will happen helps or not--a lot of times the box causes this by confusing the set it is connected to.

SOURCE: Vizio VX32L No Display and Can't Power Off

Old messages and bcipollina is gonna get to read this resonse twice; sorry-
If it just fails to turn on or ignores the remote, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself. 
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

 
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.  
 
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

BTW, from what I have read about Vizio, I think they are close relatives to iLo which was also sold by Wal-Mart.
Quality control anyone?

I had a similar problem. You likely have 1 or more bad capacitors on the power supply board. You can easily identify them - they have a raised or rounded appearance on the top instead of being flat. Remove the power supply board and take to electronics repair shop and have them replaced. The capacitors only cost me $4.24 for two. Now mine works fine. The repair man replaced them for free. It took him only 10 minutes to solder them on the board. Easy, cheap fix but manufacturer won't tell you that. I fixed this on 1-02-09. My 2 bad capacitors were "3300uf 10v" and I replaced with "3300uf 16v" but you might be able to replace with "4700uf 35 v" also.

SOURCE: Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box

I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.

Will pioneer plasma 50 inch pdp-505pe work with any other media box


just check the media box does have a connector like your TV.
The Pioneer 505 does not have a HDMI connector so it will be difficult to connect the modern boxes.
Find a box with a SCART connector.

How do I get sky from my set top box to work in a different room, I am trying to get my sky to work on a TV in a different room ? I have wired up TV coax cable from my sky box in sitting room and run


Hi Jim,
Here In my place in India, you can attach only one tv to the sky set top box.That too with AV cables. The program or channel changing is done by box only. The tv works as a monitor and has no role in program selection. You can attach a second tv to the box not through antenna cable but through AV cables only. That too if the box is having second set of output sockets. In that case both the TVs will receive the same programmes. To watch different programmes on the second tv you will have to go for an additional box.

TV does not have aHDMI port so what audio and vdeo csbles needed to connect to a Sky HD box ?


Hello
There is a side socket connection set on your Philips TV. You can connect two audio channels Left and Right and one Video. Connect these socket with an AV cable, and connect the other end of that cable to your SKY HD boxe's respective output sockets. Then select the TV input to AV by going into its menu and surfing through it. That is all for settings. OK

Watching a football game picture is very unclear


The noise reduction option will cause a blur on fast movement. Also, you probably already know this, but a standard definition broadcast will look very blurry on an HD TV, so make sure the channel you're watching is actually an HD channel.

Oh, wow, I just noticed that this is from October. Oh well, maybe you're still having problems.

Digital TV


It is HD ready, which means to get HD you will need to connect a HDMI cable to a HDMI source such as a SKY HD / VIRGIN HD SET TOP BOX or a HD DVD player to take advantage of HD.
