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.

You can try unplugging the tv and wait for a couple minutes and then plug it back in... I just did this and now the television works again.

you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.

I have Philips 50 inch plasma TV purchased almost exactly 3 years ago. Completely out of warranty. Paid 1999 bucks for it new. Now Plasma TVs similar to this are 800 bucks. I figured the cost of a repair tech coming to the house would be around 500 bucks.. so I decided I could "do no harm" and look at the power supply. Sure enough, two 3300 uF caps were swollen.. I am far from a true electrical repair person, and if it were not for the caps being swollen, would have no idea that they were bad. I am however a little bit skilled in soldering. So I ordered replacements for about 8 bucks. The caps were actually only 1.50 ea. but the min order fee and shipping brought it to about 8 bucks.. I got them from studiosoundelectronics.com . They came in today and installed them... to my astonishment, my TV works as good as it did when it was new... I must say that I am dissapointed in Philips.. and will never buy another product from them. If it is out of warranty.. they will not even talk to you.. I don't think it is too much to ask when you spend 1999 bucks on a product from them.. I expected my TV to have more than 2.999 years in life in it. Thanks a million to this site for providing soulutions for folks..

Using your TV's remote control press the right cursor button three times
and it will adjust the Screen to the right and the green line will
disappear. Use the left button if your green line is on the left.
