Re: SP42W5HFX menu problem

Here is what going on. This is a internal fix. You need to do a small voltage adjustment. There are 2 controls. Your VS adjust and your VA adjust. Maybe your VE adjust. Look inside the panel there will be a sticker with the correct voltage. Just adjust accordingly. Be very careful. These are very important adjustment.

Best regards

I did run the menue service on and nor more picture but sound

If you have entered its service menu, you should quit it to get normal picture and sound. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box and press "Enter".
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

How can I reset my Philips 37 in flat screen TV back to the factory settings?


You haven't mentioned the model no. of your TV. Nonetheless, the reset procedure for the model nos. 42PFL7409/98 / 42PFL7409S/98 goes like this:

1- Press Home,
2- Select [Setup] > [Installation] > [Factory
3- Press play to enter the [Factory settings]
[Reset] is highlighted,
4- Press OK to reset to default settings.
5- Press Home to exit.
The reset procedure may differ for other model nos.

Furthermore, Press the "Menu" button to access the menu, and select "TV Settings" and then "Picture" to bring up the picture settings. Adjust the color, brightness, sharpness and other settings if the picture seems off. Select "Dynamic Contrast" to have the contrast adjust to screen changes and "Digital Noise Reduction" to cut down on outside interference and reduce noise in the signal. On the "Installation" menu, select "Reset AV Settings" to have the settings reset to their factory defaults.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

No sound

There are two quick things to try:
1) The TV's speakers may be turned off. To turn on: Press MENU, select "Sound Settings", select "Internal Speakers", then select "On" (as opposed to "Off"), and then EXIT.

2) The Sound source may be set to PIP (picture in picture) instead of Main picture. In that case press MENU, select "Picture", select "PIP", select "Select Sound", then select "Main" (as opposed to "Sub"), as the source of the sound, and then press EXIT.
Whatever PIP is set to may not even be connected to the TV so there would be no sound.

The terms and menus used here are from Samsung so they will be different from yours but the concept is the same.

Good luck,
