This is a technical problem. I was on the phone with Philips for an hour. This is in all modes (DVD, Cable, etc.) There is a 5-6" Gap on the left side in 4:3 mode. In widescreen it takes up the space but the picture still runs off the right side of the screen. Even in MENU the words run off the right side. so it seems the picture is off to the right and wider than it should be.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello To control to picture, brightness, contrast, color etc; you must ahve its remote control. sotry to buy one universal remote control whcih has setup coeds with your Philips DVD player, of just buy an original one from the authorised service center for Philips at your town. OK.
Make sure you're plugged into a good outlet, carefully check the power cable to check if a pet might have chewed though it, etc. And if the AC cord is detachable (usually one end is special) and you have an alternate, try swapping them.
If it's still under warranty, call Philips technical or customer support for a possible replacement.
u just select the mode 2.1 it's better....if there is no option to change the 5.1 to 2.1 u just connect the left speaker to dvd 5.1 center out and right cable to front left out put ..now it will work perfectly..try this...thanks
Try connecting to S-video or DVdcomponent.If you have only composite video input for TV,Connect to video cable to Yout in DVd,If you get a Black and white picture,Your Dvd video card is defective.
Maybe not cost effective replacing it.Contact local Philips service center.
Mine does the same. Cannot get a picture using the Yellow RCA output. Use an S-video cable if you can - it should still work. If you get a black and white picture using the S-video output, go to MENU > VIDEO page and change the output from PyBywhateveritis to S-video and the color will come back. I only found out mine was broken when I needed to use the s-video cable for something else and tried switching to the Composite Video (RCA) to no avail no matter how many cables or TV inputs I tried.
Test the speakers by changing source to the disc mode, and inserting a dvd into the HTS. If you get sound on all 5 speakers in DVD mode, then your speakers are still good. If you don't get sound on all 5 speakers, then press the "SURR" button to try the sound in stero, dolby, or other modes - one of these should give you sound on all 5 speakers. If you still don't get sound on all 5 speakers in dvd mode, then there is a problem with the speakers or speaker wires.
If you do get sound on all 5 speakers in disc (dvd) mode, but not when in TV mode, then take out the red and white AV cable, go buy a digital audio or SPDIF cable, and plug in the digital audio or SPDIF cable from the digital audio OUT of your TV or cable/satellite box to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS.
I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.
