If Setanta shows up as a channel, but is just not accessible, then it's not a scanning problem.
In this case the problem may be with the viewing card or CAM not inserted correctly. The CAM needs a good push to insert correctly. Also, it is not obvious which way round the CAM goes into the TV. Try both ways. There will be hard resistance if the CAM is the wrong way round. If there is not hard resistance, then it probably needs pushing in a bit more.

If Setanta doesn't show on the channel list, then the problem is more likely to be to do with your signal.

Philips 37PF5521D green light flashes 1 long then 9 short


The fault code is '19'. Counting the flashes to philips TVs are given in detail by the link given below. These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. This will make repair easy. For more information, check the link http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ You can get details about the fault codes, blinking codes etc:

Power board for 37pf5521d


hello!
You don't need to replace power supply in most cases. If you can to the board itself, it buried deep under metal shield, up side down, remove it from the set by unscrewing 6 machine screws, unplugging few plastic connectors. Be careful, connectors are fragile, gently move those in every direction, while pulling out male part of connectors. You will find at least 1 "bloated" electrolytic capacitor, remove and replace those. It's good have "in circuit" capacitor checker to determine quality of "hot side" of power supply capacitors. If you won't find and replace those, small: 1mf 10mf or 22mf, your set will start up, might even work fine for a while, then will quit for good! I've seen that happen! If you don't have capacitor gizmo, then replace all small electrolytic capacitors on "hot" side of power supply. "hot" is that side, what connects to main power in plug area, contents one large capacitor, I.C. chip diver, power mosfet, etc. worst case scenario: if you can't replace those parts yourself, remove the board and take to local TV repair shop. It won't cost you that much to do so, compare to complete TV repair.
Good luck,
Alex.

Hi there. I have the same problem with you but have found out from Philips and their supplier that they have discontinued making the parts for the tv.
Did you manage to solve this?

Volume keeps turning itself up philips lcd tv


this is due to surface mount capacitors going faulty on the side buttons panel. You can simply disconnect the cable from this board and use you remote to control the channels and volume. if you want it fixed you will have to replace the side button control panel which is a cheap part.

Screen goes black tv stays on. Turn off and on and TV's fine.


I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

Should just push in. It will only fit 1 way round. You may need to give it a firm push.

Taking TV from UK to Australia


The TV has a setting for Australia in the Digital setup menu, so there shouldn't be a problem.

The mains voltage in Australia is 240V - 50Hz, so you should only need to change the mains lead.

If you decide to go ahead, when you set up the tv:

Switch on tv.

Press and hold "MENU" on the side of the tv.

Menu will appear on-screen.

Continue to hold until menu clears.

Wait.

TV will reset to factory settings, allowing you to re-tune the tv.
