Question about Philips 47PFL7403D 47 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Picture is not good

I just bought the philips 47inch 1080p lcd tv from walmart for 1,098.00. I hooked it up to my direct tv which only has composite cable hookups ( red white and yellow). The picure is not good. I'm not really great when it comes to this tv stuff. Im moving soon, so cannot upgrade to an hd box yet. I also hooked it up to my dvd home entertainment center with component cables and it looks better than the direct tv, but not that great. I also tried my PS2 on it and it looks bad too. I have a s-cable hookup on my direct tv box but that doesnt look good either. What can I do, in lamens terms please....haha

Good choice on the TV. I'm getting the same TV real soon.
I've been with Directv for over 7 years. And they have upgrade the boxes alot. Just wait until you get your new box the H21. It will be the difference between night and day.It looks great with the 720p TV that I currently have now.

Right now your PS2 and the old Directv box is only putting out 480p. Which will look ugly on the 1080p. You'll have to wait until you upgradethe box and use HDMI cords. PS3 puts out 1080p.

Look at the Directv web site, they should give you a big discount on the upgraded box for being with them for so long. They did for me.

How do I hook up my dvd/vcr to the tv


On the back of the cinavision you have two groups of sockets. The yellow socket under Video out is picture. Red and white is sound. Connect them to the TV's yellow red white sockets marked Video In 1. This connection will give you picture and sound from either the VCR or the DVD deck.

There's a better picture quality available for DVDs only from the Component video out sockets (green red blue). Next to them is another set of audio sockets (red white). Connect all five sockets to the TV's input number 2. The colours match up. The picture from Component will be clearer and sharper.

On your Sharp TV remote, select Video 1 to watch VCR, and Video 2 to watch DVDs.

If the backlight of the LCD-panel does not function, (no picture) then Master and/or Slave inverter are defective. Inverter boards are screwed to both sides of the LCD display, if they have revision 1.2 boards then they will need replaced with revision 1.3 boards.

I just bought a Samsung 40" LCD 1080p 120Hz HDTV. I don't know too much about HDTV's, but I'm having really bad problems getting my Xbox 360 to look even remotely good on the tv. I have it set up through...


1. Check what resolution your xbox is sending to your tv. It should be set to 720p 1080i or 1080p in the video setting on the xbox
2. Make sure you are not also connecting to xbox with the composite video cable(yellow, red ,white). Should just be the hdmi running to the tv

No picture/intermitten picture


I just got through explaining this to someone else - the HDCP encryption system that Philips uses is not future-proof - you will continue to have this problem as long as you use an HDMI connection with a Philips TV. My advice, which you can take or leave, is to use Component (Red, Green and Blue) cables. you won't get 1080p, but you will get 1080i, which is pretty close.

No picture


with the x box 360 it defaults to 1080p and this model does not support that resolution. connect xbox with composite cables and go into x box menu and lower resolution to 1080i and source tv back to original connection and should have picture

Are you connecting the tv to your source using the DVI, component (Red Green Blue + 2), or composite (Red, Yellow, White)?

Try switching the type of connection you are using. If you are connected via component, then switch to composite. If the problem persists even on composite connectors, then the issue lies with the TV. If the composite cable works fine, then the problem is most likely the cable you are using.

Press the sleep button, and make sure the sleep timer is set to OFF.

Unplugging the TV from the wall outlet resets the TV.

If you have a cable or satellite box connected to the TV, then try resetting the box also by turning off/unplugging from wall outlet.

Surge protectors can cause some occasional anomalies with LCD TV's (they're still a good idea) - just reset the TV to clear up these anomalies.
