Question about Philips Garbo Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Garbo Mirror Mode not selectable in menu

My Philips Garbo Matchline is about four years old. After being switched off for the past six months, it is no longer possible to select Mirror mode from the Picture menu. (We need to do this to invert the projected image, since the projector is ceiling mounted and thus upside down).

This worked fine for the first three years of the projector's life. Not any more, however.

Using either the remote or front panel buttons, I enter the menu, cursor down through the Picture Menu options until I reach Mirror at the bottom of the second page. This reveals a set of four sub-options: AB / BA / BV / VB [approximately], representing the four ways of orienting the display.

When I try to move the current selection from the default AB, the entire menu rotates so that the AB option moves with the cursor. The new menu then looks like this:

VB / [AB] / BA / BV

and [AB] is still selected, even though the cursor is now on the second item on the line. Moving the cursor right does the same again (rotates entire menu, without changing the actual selection).

This is quite bizarre. I've tried resetting to factory defaults, making the change both with and without video sources connected, using alternate buttons on the remote while in the menu, and (of course), Philips technical support. Nobody has anything to suggest.

The projector works perfectly in all other respects, and in particular, other menu options can be selected correctly with no strange effects.

Suggestions appreciated!

Try to replace the remote sensor board inside the bottom of your tv. If that won't work, you need to replace the Small Signal Board (SSD Assy) of your tv.

SOURCE: No TV "Select Source" Menu Option

Had the same problem and found on the back of the tv on the black box that the cable hooks to there is a plug at the top of that box on the left side came loose. If you slide that box to the right you can completely remove it from the tv. Reinstall it and make sure it's plugged in tight your tv setting should come back.

1997 chevy blazer s10 cranks but wont start


You have a new battery and it cranks. Turning over is cranking. You are saying it won't start after sitting for six months? What is an old mechanic? Was the cable installed at home during the one year layoff? It sounds as though you failed to hold the old mechanic responsible for installing the correct cable or adjusting the one you have ,so it will start. You have a safety switch issue by the sound of it. Make sure you have the right cable and then find out how to install and if applicable,adjust properly

No picture or sound just six red blinking lights


Use your warranty in a hurry before it expires. Your TV when into protection mode to prevent further damage. Most TVs have a 1 year warranty. Good Luck.

Yellow tinged edges


Your problem is most likely your Blue and Green lens' inside the light engine. It's not something you can replace yourself. I worked for Philips for 14 yrs. repairing the LCD projectors the last 6 Yrs. Call philips and get the number of an ASC in your area that has repaired projectors.

Benq monitor flashes primary colours when switch on or off


This is called burn-in mode. Used to test the monitor at the factory.
To fix this, use the buttons under the front of the monitor,
There are six buttons. Let's number them 1 to 6 from the left.
Press 6 to display menu (at the bottom in Red will say Burn in mode on)
Press 4 or 5 until Recall is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 4 or 5 until Recall All is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 4 or 5 until Yes is highlighted
Press 6 to select
Press 3 to exit
This will reset all paramaters and also turn-off burn-in mode
If you want to reset some parameters to your preferences, press 6 again to bring up menu and
see you user guide to get explanations for the different settings.

When switching TV on screen turns white and after 30 seconds switches off


This likely has a 10 ohm resistor on the CRT board that is open.  This feeds 200v to the cathodes of the CRT.
