Question about Philips 13PF7835 13 in. LCD Television
Turned on the TV this morning and could hear the sound coming through the speakers ok but there is no picture from the VCR or the DVD player. Can't pick up a signal for normal TV stations either. Have made sure the scarts are all connected properly as this has solved this problem in the past. However, this did not resolve the problem. The TV is about 5 years old so don't know if it's just reached the end of its life.
Any clues as to why this has happened
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.
You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

SOURCE: No picture, sound ok
I have a similar issue. Sometimes the entire screen goes black and sometimes only one-half - either the top or bottom half goes black. The only solution we have found is to gently tap the TV (usually the front side) and the picture will come back for awhile. It almost seems heat related as it only goes out after the first 10 minutes of use. There must be a fix to this.

What type of Inputs do you have on your TV. (ANT IN, S-Videio, RCA Video,RCA Audio)
If you only have a ANT In or RF Coaxial hook up you will need a RF Modulator

I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.
As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).

May be the same problem Magnavox is having with their 27MF231d. I found the fix on this site and it took care of the same problem with my set. Not the easiest thing to do, but it worked. If you do not know how to solder, get some help with this one. If you take it to a Magnavox Authorized repair location, they will just replace the bad capacitor with another bad capacitor of the same type and voltage. The problem is they have a 25w capacitor where a 35w capacitor should be. Mine was bulging, with black tar looking stuff coming out of it. It was obviously bad. Follw the instructions below.
1. Remove all screws around perimeter, one screw at the lower right at (Side A/V), and 2 1”round plastic knob s.
2. Remove back cover
3. At lower left side remove 2 screws for On/Off switch cut tie wrap that holds wire down for free movement.
4. Disconnect wire connector to side A/V at lower right side
5. Disconnect wire connector to right side circuit Board
6. Disconnect wire connector to left side circuit board
7. Remove the 2 mounting brackets upper left and upper right 2 screws each.
8. Remove 3 screws each side of the metal box in the middle
9. Fold back metal tape off bottom and top of metal box
10. 1 wire connector at top of box I left connected
11. Flip metal box over towards top of Tv. Be careful of wire at top thats still connected.
12. On left side in box is power supply board
13. Towards bottom of board you should see the numbers C2081 and C2074
14. Remove the six screws holding down power supply board
15. Flip board down towards bottom of Tv.
16. Unsolder capacitors replace with new 1200uf 35v and 2200uf 35v 105°C radial capacitors
17. Capacitors should be around 1/2” to 5/8” dia. X 1.25 long appox. 2 Wires come out of one end should be .030 dia.
18. Reassemble in reverse order and enjoy
