Question about Philips 42PFL3603D/27 42 in. LCD TV

Philips 42PFL3603/F7 picture jumpy

Please, I can't watch this any longer. I've tried everything - and i know to format the picture... the picture keeps jumping various formats, especially during commercials. Help. And it's not the cable box - I have used this same Comcast cable box - with HDMI connection - before, so I know the box is functioning properly.
Thanks for anyone who can shed any light on this.

    I try that, but it doesn't seem to work. And how does that happen if you are switching from one channel to another... or can't you do that? Especially on HD channels, like the movie we tried watching the other night from ON DEMAND. But thanks for your help on this.

Simple Solution. I have an almost the same TV and if you want it to stay in one format press the FORMAT button on the remote. I am pretty sure it is somewhere on the top right.

Need to find out a part # for my philips 52PFL7403/f7 for the ir sensor


Join Date: Nov 2011 I have a Philips 47PFL3603D/F7 with the same problem. It was the IR sensor board causing the problem. You can search online to find the board, which almost everyone will most likely not have in stock, and cant be ordered. The part you need is this: 313926859181 IR Remote Sensor.

Models it will fit are as follows: Substitute Parts 313926859182

If you can find the board, great! A replacement board costs about $12.00. If you can't... we'll there is something you can try ; )

Either way, if you know it's the board, what's the harm in trying?

Remove the back from the TV. You can actually leave it on your stand to do this if you can spin it around to gain access to the back of it. Be sure to unplug everything first!!!

Looking at the back of the tv, the board will be located in the lower left side by the speaker. It will have 2 cables attached to it. Remove them, and take out the screw or two that holds it in place. There will be a plastic tab that keeps it in place also.

Take your fingernail and bend the tab back, and the board should come free. After that you should be holding the board in your hands. The side of the board with the connectors on it is the side you want to manipulate. There will be a tiny surface mounted capacitor beside one of the wire connection sockets. Take a utility knife and scrape it off/ you could use a soldering iron but it should come off very easy with a knife.

Plug it back in, and give it a try! If it works... great! If not, find a replacement board, and try that.

Hope it helps someone!!!! quote.gif

Philips 42PFL3603 tv sound but no picture.


Hold a flash light to the screen after it goes off and see if you can see a faint picture. Sounds like your backlight might be cutting off. Repair can be expensive but some of the newer units don't require the entire LCD to be replaced.
