Some models didn't come with the ambient light, the sides of the TV speakers will have long clear lenses that look like flouresencent bulbs. If so, Marvic is right. The button on the remote should turn it on. Its not so visible in bright room tho.

I have a philips 42PF9641D/10 and the ambilight on the left side will not come on (lcd tv) any ideas? On turning on the TV both ambilights came on then the left side went off after about a minute!


probably you got a processing unit problem, which makes your tv stopping recognizing the screen information .
you should try resetting all factory default settings, if this doesn't work, you will have to take the TV to an assistance center .

Phillips ambilight 50 in red light problem


I had this problem on a 42" Philips Ambilight. After reading in another forum, opened up the back, and found 2 leaking capacitors on the center circuit board (main power supply pc board) toward the bottom. Tops of the capacitors were bludged out (10v 3300uF) and leaking electrolytes. Unsoldered the old ones myself, went to Radio Shack. They were out, so order 12 on ebay for $6.63 including shipping. Resoldered and works fine. Can't do it yourself? Take the board out (just unhook the cables & unscrew it ), and take it to a computer shop or tv repair or someone who knows how to solder, and have them change them. Piece of cake!

Got 2 faint white lines on screen on philips 42 lcd ambilight


Sounds like plasma burn in. I'm fairly positive this TV has a white out burn in removal in the menu somewhere. Look for it. It should be a program that makes colored static all over the screen or a white scrolling bar followed by black fading into white again. Run it for an hour or so. If that doesn't fix it, there's not much else you can do.

Philips ambilight 42inch plasma


You can fix this yourself with a software upgrade - get the upgrade from Philips website - go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter your model number, click on the verison of your model ending in /37, and click on "Software & Drivers"; click on the link that says "Firmware Upgrade - Software". Instructions are on the same page - make sure you only transfer the .upg file, not the entire zip file to a portable memory stick.

Good luck!
