Question about Philips 42PF7220A 42 in. Plasma Television
My flat screen Philips tv (model # 42PFL7422D/37) says unsupported video format. a movie will start to play briefly with video and sound and then will change to unsupported video format.....which the screen goes blank but the sound still plays.....? I dont understand how that can happen -----especially when we can play adult movies and not have this issue. Playstation3, and the internet---which is through a box from Time Warner isn't working either. We have a Philips Home Theater system HTS6500 connected. Previously we had a HDMI connection on the tv repaired approx 6 months ago, which seems very similar here. Also, we are members of NetFlix (online) and we have our CD going through the PS3---when it was working. -------Is there a possibility that could have some bering?

First of all you must check that your laptop supports a protocol called "DHCP" over DVI. Otherwise you are chasing your tail. This information will probably be in the manual or available online. DHCP is a special handshake protocol for HDMI and your television and computer will not talk to eachother without it. If you find it to be compatible you need to lock down which input on the TV it is. Plug something in via HDMI and verify you see it. Then unplug it and plug your computer into this port. You don't want to be flicking through inputs trying to find it. Also, hook up an external monitor to the laptop and figure what needs to be done to display on it. Then try the television. My guess, though, is that you won't find DHCP compatibility if it is an older laptop. My best advice is to buy a Playstation 3 and watch Netflix with that. Otherwise you'll need a different way of hooking up which might include buying an expensive converter box and/or watching poor quality video.

SOURCE: I have a Philips flat
To check if the screen really has burn in, try using another video source, like a DVD player. Do you still see the faint image on the screen during times of dark or light scenes? If so, you have burn-in. If not, it's something strange going on w/ your receiver (I would contact DirectTV and ask).
Some ways to help alleviate this problem is to leave the screen on for a long time with a clean white screen, then alternate to clean black. (many hours each).
If you have a tv station with just static, you can also leave it on that for a while, which exercises every pixel on the panel and helps it "forget".
Usually these techniques can help but you will still see it faintly. That is a permanent problem.
