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.

The HDM1 on the DVD player model DVP3962/37 has no signal. The player has been working for a year with no problem. We can only watch the DVD on component 1 which is not in color.


The HDMI should work hooked directly to tv through An HDMI input but if it doesn't, try either watching yourself or have someone watching while you twist and try to push all three(blue, green ,red) connectors into their in/out jacks. I feel composite gives you better picture anyway> the HDMI is just easier because it carries sound and audio. Anyway, one of your jacks is probably not in all the way>

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.

Hi,

I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.

Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.

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.

It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure. From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables. From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable. From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right). Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
