Question about Philips 42PFL5332D 42 in. LCD Television

Tiny "guide-size" screen remains when I'm out of guide

When I have the HD cable attached, and I switch channels, or if I go to "Guide" and then go out of guide, only a TINY screen (like the one iwhen the guide is showing) remains. The only way to get the big screen again is to press ON/OFF of the picture-in-picture button twice. SO FRUSTRATING.
I just had my Time Warner cable box changed last night, but we determined that it's definitely the TV.

Components inside the lcd tv, in the mainboard most likely are going bad. Im not sure witch components but this cant be caused by anything else, You can try to reset the devices settings.

With my Sony Bravia 46" xbr the screen keeps cutting out. I'm usig hdmi cables and can't find a reason why te tv keeps cutting out. The sound still remains but picture doesn't. Not even out technician can...


Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.

I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).

TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD

I just bought the tv, hooked it up to my new cable box using HDMI cable. i get some picture and sound on some channels but no HD channels at all


Try to go under the setting with the cable box and see if it has a switch to choose HD channels first. What cable companie do you have?? It could be possible that you will need to call to get HD service.

Sometimes the HD channels tend to be be late in the programming guide(I have comcast of Virginia and most channels are 700+)

send me a message in the comments and I can help further

Hope I could help!

TV Guide System not working


In order to receive the TV's Guide system, the cable should be connected directly to the TV instead of the cable box if you are still using it.

Aspect ratio problems on Samsung LN-S2651D Flat Panel TV


The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

Poor screen resolution and unable to get channel guide.


The channel guide is a service just like closed caption. Rumer has it that it's not going to be around for much longer. The only fix is to unplug set ..wait awhile till memory loss occurs...plug back up and do a setup. Nothing in the TV will cause partial guide. Weak signal could and cause fuzzy picture too. Complain to cable company. But brightness problem is something else.

Size of screen


If you have black panel os sides the picture is not HD. Not allways the HD broadcasting have HD shows. The advertising for example is not HD. Check the picture size in the tv to be "allonged" and play with the screen size with your cable box remote. Usually is # button.
From what I know LC42D62U has no TV Guide feature.
