Question about Philips 23PF5320 23 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

No picture on Phillips 20in TV

I believe my grandson turned the brightness down until there is no picture, but I can't see the menu to bring the brightness back up. Can anyone walk me thru the menu so I can see it that is the problem. I change the channel and lower or raise the voice, but have no picture. I did buy a new adapter on e-bay. With the old adapter I got nothing, so I bought a new one.

Your previous adaptor may have been damaged by the failure of an internal component in the set.
Look at your LCD screen from a shallow angle to see if you can spot any 'ghostly' images on the screen when it is turned on and has audio present. If you can, then either the fluorescent backlight has failed or the circuit that produces its high voltage. I've yet to see a modern set that even allows the brightness to be turned down so far that no image is present.
Your grandson may be 'off the hook.'

Tip

Kitchen table, Screen (G2) voltage adjustment, Course 101


Well, those of you who have no idea why a Screen Voltage (technically known as G2) adjustment may interest you, here is a photo of a bad adjustment (too high).

8914ffc.jpg

You may also experience smeared colors… this is caused by a low adjustment. To correct this, we need to get the back off of the TV. It would be a good time to unplug it if you have not already done so. Next we locate the FBT (Fly-Back Transformer).

be30da0.jpg

This is a 20” model and it has 2 knobs. Your FBT may vary, as some slim designs and some large tube models may have 3 knobs.

You will need to look closely at the knobs; they will be labeled “Focus” or “Screen”. On units with 3 knobs, there will be 2 focus knobs and 1 screen. For now, we will be working with at the Screen knob only.

0007e62.jpg
d784a76.jpg
With the adjustments identified, we are ready to plug the TV in (including your standard cable connection) and turn it on… BECARFUL!!! For the rest of this adjustment, we will be working inside of an electrically charged TV. We also need to normalize the picture, so go into your TV menu and adjust the Picture and Brightness settings to the middle or center.

If your TV normally displays a black screen when you do not have a signal connected, ex: Video input 1, then this will be the quickest and easiest setup for you to use. However, if you are not so lucky, you may need to bust through your DVD video collection and find a “between scenes” shot that you can pause on to give you as black of a picture as possible. Eliminate as much light in the room as you can (just remember, you still need to see what your doing)… we want a good view of the screen without the interference of ambient lighting.

Once you have your black screen all set, we are now ready to proceed to the adjustment. If you have lines on the screen, see (HIGH)… if you have color smear, see (LOW).

HIGH: If you have some lines in the picture with a washed out appearance, your Screen voltage is too high. You will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT counter-clockwise. Do this slowly, until the lines are no longer visible. If you still have a small amount of illumination coming from the screen, back it down a touch further until this just disappears.

LOW: If you have smeared colors in the picture that seem to trail of the edges, your Screen voltage is too low. You will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT clockwise. Do this slowly, until you just see some lines zigzagging top to bottom on the screen. Now, you will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT counter-clockwise. Do this slowly, until the lines are no longer visible. If you still have a small amount of illumination coming from the screen, back it down a touch further until this just disappears.

The final set, switch the TV input over to your cable input and check out the picture. Take a good look at some bright scenes and dark scenes. Do they look ok? Adjust the Picture and Brightness in your menu… can you set the picture to your liking? If so, you are all set. If not, double check your work (remember to normalize the Picture and Brightness setting).

feab016.jpg

If you are unable to adjust the Screen voltage as described above, you may have a High Voltage problem with your TV. This will require a repair and is not covered by this tutorial.

If you are all set and the adjustment is good, we should have a quick look at the focus adjustment. Return the TV to your Black screen setup. Press the TV menu button to give you nice fixed display to focus. Adjust the focus knob(s) until you have the clearest picture. It’s important to balance the center of the picture with the corners of the picture. If the center is too sharp and the edges and corners are blurry, it is not a good adjustment. Do your best, you are the final judge of your work here.

Once you have finished the adjustments and verified the picture with your cable picture, you are ready to close it up and return the TV to normal service. Unplug the TV, replace the back cover… enjoy!

I hope this was helpful. If you benefit from this tutorial, please leave some feedback.

How can I reset my Philips 37 in flat screen TV back to the factory settings?


Hello,


You haven't mentioned the model no. of your TV. Nonetheless, the reset procedure for the model nos. 42PFL7409/98 / 42PFL7409S/98 goes like this:

1- Press Home,
2- Select [Setup] > [Installation] > [Factory
settings],
3- Press play to enter the [Factory settings]
menu
[Reset] is highlighted,
4- Press OK to reset to default settings.
5- Press Home to exit.
The reset procedure may differ for other model nos.

Furthermore, Press the "Menu" button to access the menu, and select "TV Settings" and then "Picture" to bring up the picture settings. Adjust the color, brightness, sharpness and other settings if the picture seems off. Select "Dynamic Contrast" to have the contrast adjust to screen changes and "Digital Noise Reduction" to cut down on outside interference and reduce noise in the signal. On the "Installation" menu, select "Reset AV Settings" to have the settings reset to their factory defaults.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!


I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!
