How do you turn the 3D on?

Every 3d set we have seen it isnt something you turn on. The content or channel is either 3d or not and you put glasses on and watch.

When i turn on my tv it stays on the philips screen. never goes to tv. i tried unplugging it and leaving it unplugged for an hour, no help

You give insufficient information to provide you with a more streamlined solution, so excluse me for being too brief.

What I'd do if I were you is to try and re-flash (update) the firmware in your TV.

if that doesn't help you'll likely need a new main board.

TO update the firmware you'd need the exact model of your Philips. 42PFL5603D has two versions - /F7 and /27.

The update for the first is at

The second is at

Those are Philips provided and supported pages, so you should be able to find your way around there.

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate it with thumbs up - we need your votes if we can't get your money :-)
