Question about Philips 37PFL7603H 37 in. HDTV-Ready LCD TV

1 Answer

After switching TV on, remote doesn't work for first 2 minutes

We have a Philips 37PFL7662D LCD TV. After we switch it on using the remote that came with the TV, the TV comes on with the last channel that was on before switch off. But the remote control then doesn't work for about 2 minutes. Pressing any key (volume, channel, etc.) either has no effect at all, or does the wrong thing (e.g. the volume button changes the channel!). Even the switch on/off button doesn't work to switch the TV off, and yet it has just been used to switch the TV on!

It continues to malfunction like this for about 2 to 3 minutes, and then works perfectly after that.

Philips 5522 LCD 32PFL5522D/05 Can't get what used to be called ceefax, but is now I believe teletex, on digital.


You wont be able to receive ceefax / teletext after the digital switch over. As they were a Analogue service. what you need to do now is use the "Red Button" "Interactive" services as they now incorporate the new type of teletext. If you don't get them you will need to retune the set. if that doesn't work I advise contact Philips Support

Connecting Ps3 with philips tv (full hd) when i got hd cable in, and click to switch so the ps3 uses hd to show things and i than switch over to the channel i plugin the hdmi cabel it gives blac kscreen


If it's the first time using your PS3, use the composite cables that came with it. Turn on the PS3 go to video settings and switch the input to HDMI. After you've switched to HDMI, turn the PS3 off and connect your HDMI cable, go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If this isn't the first time you've used HDMI for your PS3, make sure your T.V. is on the correct input. If the T.V. is on the correct input, try switching the HDMI cable to a different input. If that doesn't work try using a different HDMI cable, testing different HDMI connections if you're still getting the black screen. If none of those work then it's probably a problem with the PS3, but just to make sure try plugging something else with HDMI to see if that works. If another HDMI device works, then it's your PS3, if it doesn't then it could be a problem with your HDMI connections on the T.V.

Volume keeps turning itself up philips lcd tv


this is due to surface mount capacitors going faulty on the side buttons panel. You can simply disconnect the cable from this board and use you remote to control the channels and volume. if you want it fixed you will have to replace the side button control panel which is a cheap part.

Sleep Timer on remote does not work


First try to access the sleep timer menu from the controls on the TV to verify the TV is working.

If that works then the remote has the problem.
Now try this;
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
If this does not work, then you may need a new remote unit.

Picture not centered on my philips 47'' lcd tv


NOTE:(Edited and copied from another thread on Fixya.com, c7carl)

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD
By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007
Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago

I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.

    WOW! It works!! The picture on my Magnavox (aka Philips) 37MF321D had shifted to the right. I figured I had a big repair bill coming up soon. But hey! Just used the TV remote as described by "Guest', and re-centered the picture to the left. Wallah! Thanks ""Guest" whomever you are! Reply

Get Direct TV Remote to TOTALLY work with Magnavox TV


My TV remote has a slide-switch at the side to switch between the TV, DVD or VCR. I don't know if yours has one, if so, switch it to TV. It also has a button to switch between Analogue, Digital and External, so make sure if you have a button like this that it's switched to the right input.

HDMI-No signal input


Turning the power off shouldn't have caused the problem.

Make sure the TV is set to the correct HDMI (1 or 2) by pressing AV on the remote and moving up and down the list.

Check the laptop is set to output through the HDMI socket.

Right click on the desktop -----> properties ----> settings

Actual options depend on your graphics card.
