Hi Geoff, I hope I can help you with this. If you are using an accessory device (DVD, DVR) check cables to see that they are secure and if device has audio out option that it is set correctly. Also check to see that Video and Audio cables are connected to matching inputs on your set.
If you are using DVI to HDMI you will need to use a separate digital audio cable. DVI cables do not carry audio signal. After attaching the audio cable if you still do not hear sound you may need to set Digital Audio In. To do so:
Press Menu Button on remote.
Press the cursor ring down to highlight SETUP.
Press the cursor ring left to enter SETUP menu.
Press the cursor ring down to highlight SOURCE.
Press the cursor ring left to enter SOURCE menu.
Press the cursor ring down to highlight DIGITAL AUDIO IN.
Press the cursor ring down to select the source you want to associate Digital Audio with. HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 in this case. You might need a software update also.
The latest software solves the issues below:
TV (Plasma 42" and 50") will not turn ON/shut off itself and Red LED blinks 4- times. Recover if main switch on/off.
37" LCD full white screen appear when upgrade software.
Some channels not available after turn ON.
Delta volume changes, not remembered.
Preferred channel changes, not remembered.
Green or yellow static (sometime snowy) on HDMI picture.
Picture and sound loss for 5 to 10 sec (green LED is still ON) and back to normal.
Audio loss in all inputs and can be recovered when main switch ON and OFF.
TV set turn ON by itself/ green LED light up and goes off when set is ON.
Intermittent audio loss in NTSC RF channel.
Crack sound with high input signal.
Include the possibility to download the rating table (RRT5 capability) for digital programs.
No video/ no picture with sound.
Intermittent On-Screen Menu pop up by itself and can be removed by pressing the 'MENU' button.
Channel information display too long.
Improvement on scramble channel.
How to check the current software version on my TV set?
Press 'MENU' button on remote control to display the on-screen menu.
Select TV MENU and press the cursor right.
Select INSTALLATION and press the cursor right.
Select SOFTWARE UPGRADE and press cursor right.
Select CURRENT SOFTWARE INFO to display the current software version on your TV set.
If the TV software version is lower than the version posted on the website means your TV set needs to be upgraded.
Follow the instruction in the user manual or Firmware Upgrade Readme file on how to upgrade your software.
Where can I find the latest software for my TV set?
The Firmware Upgrade Software and Readme File documents can be found on the Philips support website. Refer to the SOFTWARE section.
Hello. Before you start replacing parts, make sure your connections are correct. It sounds like you have connected a composite source to a component input. Composite is three RCA plugs, a yellow for all of the video, and a red and white for audio left and right channels. Component is five RCA cables, green, red and blue for video, and red and white for audio. if composite is connected to a component input, the picture will be black and white with squiggly lines all through it.
Check the speaker/s first. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. 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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Try unplugging it for an hour or so or try change sources , if the
computer ever fell asleep while it was plugged in it is possible it
triggered a sleep mode in the tv. Most will do such a thing. It is
doubtful that the computer caused any damage to it but i would advise
against using a plasma tv as a computer monitor because burn in WILL
eventually occur with a static image left on the screen constantly.
If you are on cable, first run the cable wire from the wall directly to the TV, eliminating any cable box and/or VCR. If channel 2 is snowy but the rest (especially 3-6) are clear, it is most certainly a cable problem and not a TV problem. The TV uses the exact same circuits for channel 2 to 6 (VHF-LOW) so if the tuner was bad and 2 was snowy, 3, 4, 5 and 6 would be snowy too. Bring a second TV into that room, disconnect the cable wire from the RCA and connect it to the second TV. Is channel 2 on the second TV as snowy as it was on the RCA?
I had the same problem, but I had no sound at all. The power indicator light was flashing green. I tried to unplug the unit and plug it back in, but the light then was red briefly, turned orange then flashing green. What I did to solve the problem was to unplug the set and leave it for a few minutes then plug it back in and hit the front power switch at the same time. Voila! It started working again. Good luck solving this.
