Question about Philips 26MF231D 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Software Update?? My tv flashed a message about a software update then shut off. Even after I downloaded the update from the website I still had the same problem, but now it shuts off sooner. It is mounted several inches from the wall so heat shouldn't be an issue. Any suggestions?

Software update can not always fix the problem. You may need to replace the Small Signal Board (SSB Assy).

the problem is as a result of software corruption. Your phone operating system is corrupt for one reason or the other. The phone operating system might have gotten virus through bluetooth transfer, internet browsing or via the memory card.

To solve the problem, you need to flash the phone . Flashing the phone means reinstalling the phones operating system software files. The phone will be fully formatted and a fresh operating system files will be reinstalled.

You can use software updater to flash the phone. Download software updater from your phone's manufacturer website.

Needs software update how do i update this tv

Does the Tv have a USB port? If so you should be able to find the firmware on the makers website, assuming the company made a firmware update for that model. If so then download it to a flash drive, zip drive and plug it in to the TV's usb port for the update! Best of Luck!

I've always been able to watch videos now when I click on chosen video the screen stays black and there are no play/pause/sound arrows so I can't watch anything.

Check to see that your flash player is up to date. If so, make sure there aren't any software changes on your computer. there are times when an update to a browser could affect a required plugin, or even cases where installing additional software could affect how a browser operates...

I bought a blue ray player last week. When I tried to watch Avatar on it, a message appeared and stated that I needed an update before I can watch. Please advise.


yes, that's true. You are not the only one that has faced this problem. You need to update your player for it to be able to play Avatar.

Go to the website of your player's manufacturer, (e.g,, if samsung is the manufacturer of your player).

Once the site opens, go to or click software on the page, and download software update on you your PC, then burn the downloaded software into an empty disc and insert it into your player, then your player will automatically to the update from the CD.

Or, if your player has a USB, copy the downloaded software into a usb flash drive, then fix it into your player and press usb from your remote.

I hope you understand this now.

Good luck.
