Question about Philips 42PFL5332D 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Phillips hdtv I had work done yesterday on my cable. Now my tv will not switch between 1080 and 480 automatically. I have to view 480 on another input. I did not have to do this before. Could there be something hooked up incorrectly or should the tv controll this. I too have the same problem. I am using an HDMI cable and the tv only registers 480p. More specifically, I have a Panasonic 1080 DVD player connected via HDMI cable. I know the tv only displays 720p, and 480 really sucks!

If the cable box is sending in 1080 signal the tv will not be able to format to a 480 (you can switch to either/or)
the problem you have is if your not sending 1080 to the tv your not really watching HD but you cant strech the 4:3 (non HD channels) to the 16:9
the only thing you can do is run analog signal and a digital signal then switch between the two sorces for your HD and non HD programs

Phillips HDTV turns off when we turn the XBOX 360 on.


More than likely this is a trigger from the HDMI cable which can be disabled in the tv or xbox settings. To check, hook the xbox up to the tv with RCA cable that is supplied with the xbox and see does it turn the tv off it probably wont happen when connected like so.

Hi i have a sansui sty1842 hd led but my ps2 is not working on it. i have plugged in the red, white and yellow cables and nothing


First of all make sure the cables are connected to the correct inputs, which you have probably already done. After that, I had the same problem with my sons tv when we got it. His is a phillips 42". I had to go to the phillips website and download a patch, copy it to a flash/thumb drive and plug that into the usb port on the tv and install the patch from the tv's menu. After that the Playstation worked fine.

I have a Phillips HDTV model #42PF7421D/37. When


Try another hdmi wire. Physically look at the hdmi port and see if there is damage done to the port. Change the source. IE another cable box, xbox 360 dvd play etc. If all else fails, change SSB or Scaler. Depending on the set. It'll be one or the other. I don't have my information with me at the moment to distinguish which one you'll have.

Getting a No Sync message on my television


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
