Question about Philips 42PFL5332D 42 in. LCD Television
Just recently bought a new philips 42PFL5332D/37. It has been an open item so somebody has returned it. I was promised the TV was checked and works properly. I found a problem, after turned on the set, and press on the "source" button on the remote ctrl., the screen showed nothing, a few seconds later, audio came out, but the screen still nothing, used remote control to do something, press on all the keys, only could see the blue power LED light blinking, but nothing showed on the screen, only power on and off worked, then tried to turn back on and off several times, finally got the picture, what is going on with the new TV? should I upgrade the fireware? any ideas?
P.S. I have noticed that unpluging the electrical cord from the unit sometimes reset the system and everything is back to normal. I just feel is not normal for a new TV so have to reset it once a day.
Thanks a bunch
If the set is in warranty contact Philips @1-888-744-5477 and let them have a tech to come out and fix the set. But I would try to return it to the store first for a replacement.

The unit should be under warranty. What you're describing is not normal and I would attempt to get a replacement from the place of purchase or take the unit to an authorized repair center. Below is the Philips support page for your unit. You can check warranty status as well as request repair.
