Philips Ambilight TV keeps turning itself OFF!

Hi, we have a 2 year old Philips Ambilight TV 32". The set keeps turning itself off... sometimes after a few minutes, sometimes longer. I contacted Philips who could not shed any light on the problem, they just gave me the number of a local repairer.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and is there a simple fix please??

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!

SOURCE: I have a Philips Ambilight

It is unlikely that all the bulbs have failed at once and more likely that the ballast unit for that side has failed.
If they are available as a spare part they will be listed on ebay as the bakkast unit for your model/size TV or on the manufacturers web site through an authorized repair centre.
Hope that helps.

Unfortunately the video you are giving the tv must be one of the last systems the uProcessor in the tv checks. It takes about 15 seconds to detect signal/no signal for each system. Good old automated technology!

Hi I have a Philips 32inch ambilight TV about


No a lot of HDMI does NOT send the sound signal through the HDMI cable & must be run AV to AV, the RED WHITE & YELLOW plugs Color to color for RED & WHITE, the YELLOW is Composite Video. . The SCART should indeed have it "All in one" however that signal is only RGB, or Composite Video, a lower quality, than HDMI. Just use HDMI & AV. you'll be all good.

How do you turn the Ambilight on our philips tv?


Hi guys, I have the same model, and after reasing the manual a little closer and skimming the setup menu I've discovered that it's not actually a built in ambient light, it's actually a setting in the picture menu under "active control" that measures the ambient light in the room and adjusts the picture quality accordingly to ensure the best contrast and reduce glare/reflect imaging. Hope this helps....
