Question about Philips Televison & Video
Last night my 2+ year old Phillips SLC4 28inch flat screen TV suddenly stopped working with digital signals. No picture or sound.Blue screen - also no onboard menus on the digital side.It receives analogue OK and my HD recorder on the same aerial is getting nice strong digital channels.
I then used it in analogue mode slaved to the HDR. The picture resize function also stopped responding and for a while it also forgot it was 16:9 and I had to alter the settings on the HDR to 4:3. At switch-on this morning the fault is still there except that it has remembered it is a 16:9 format.(It displays a notice of each of the formats as I switch through them but doesn't actually change them.
The problem has cleared itself a day later after being switched on/off a few times.I suspect the 'computer part' of the TV (channel processor, instruction decoder etc) received maybe a power glitch or an illegal infrared instruction (2 remotes used at once for example) and 'locked up' leaving just the analogue side operating.
I was going to continue happily using it with just the analogue side slaved to my Hd recorder for digital signals but it seems to have got over whatever it was that upset it.
