Remove the batteries from the remote and see if it still happens. If not, then you have a stuck button on the remote. If it continues, then it is a TV problem.

When in the setup mode the TV will not go forward. It keeps jumping back to TV.


Make sure you are pressing right buttons, some sets will go back if you press wrong button, it should be in owner manual.

My tv keeps reverting to the Philips TV Menu


If that TV has a 'menu' button on the front of the set, make sure nothing like coca-cola has spilled into where that switch is located. I would try a different remote in case the remote is getting flaky....

Menu screen keeps coming back while cable show is playing


First verify the exact Model Number of your TV. Mine is a 42PF7220A/37.

go to:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=42PF7220A/37&scy=us&slg=en

On this page I found listed under "Software & drivers" the Firmware Upgrade Software 42PF7220A/37 v1.5.0.0

I downloaded the compressed file and extracted it to a USB Flash Drive.
After you extract the file you will have 2 files...."autorun.upg" and a "readme.txt".
Print out the readme file the delete it off the USB Flash Drive
Make sure the USB Flash Drive has only one file on it (autorun.upg)

Then just follow the instructions from the "readme" file.

Fixed the "Menu" problem for me.....

Make sure the TV is turned off.
Put the USB Flash Drive in any of the USB ports on the TV.
Turn the TV power on with the Power Button on the righthand side of the TV.
The TV will display an Update screen.
Let the TV run through all 3 processes.
Turn the TV off and remove the USB Flash Drive.
Power the TV back up.
Hopefully the Updates fixed the problem.....

I own a Philips 42PF7220A/37 42'' TV (LED flashes red, some people on the net say its the capacitor c2074 to be replaced with a 2200uf 35v. for some reason i cant seem to find that capacitor number. can...


Most likely the problem is your Philips 42PF7220A/37, may not have the same power supply board as other people are talking about on the net. So, the C2074 capacitor maybe under a different number.
The best thing I would do if I had the same problem is to get a Service Manual on the internet. It cost about less than $20. Right now your TV is in " Protection Mode" and blinking a trouble code with the red light. The Service Manual will tell you what the red light blinking code means. Plus, it will give you schematics, part numbers list, and test point for diagnosing. It's better to have a manual for fixing than going by guesses over the internet.
