Question about Philips Televison & Video

Open Question

I moved my 32pfl9432D/79 Philips TV out of my room to tile the floor and when I replaced it into the room I am unable to install any digital or analogue free to air stations. My pay TV works ok though. I have checked the connections. My digital reception test says I have poor reception. The TV was working well before I moved it. Can you help?

You'll need to go into service mode and do a factory reset.
To enter service mode you'll need to press these buttons on your remote in the following order:-
Standby-info-menu-mute-standby.You'll need to do it fairly quickly and be patient it doesn't always go into it first time,don't press and hold the buttons.
The service menu should appear on the screen.Use the up /down cursor to scan down to option number 12 (factory reset)and then press the right cursor wait will appear on the screen and the set will go to standby(don't worry this is normal)
Reboot the set and retune and all should be well

To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru

Thre 24vdc power supply or backlight inverter boards may have gone out, those are the places you ned to check first.

First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

Please read my guide to understand how LCD TV works.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Novalis - misshapen, mismeasured, debris on back of tile, broken edges, stuck to...

This is one flaw of MANY manufacturer's boo boos that I dealt with, and I am less than pleased given the price I paid for this Novalis flooring. They will be receiving a letter, as I have already written the major box store, Lowes.

I was excited when I opened the boxes, already had my chalk lines down, assistance with me, and began laying the tiles out in the correct direction. My mother, my assistance, began peeling the backs, and lying the tile into the lines. The first half of the box went smoothly, until it didn't. The tiles began to vary in size & shape, my mother mentioned it in a concerned tone. I looked through the rest of that box to find broken corners & more variance of sizes and shapes. Given I live an hour from Lowes, I called to ask if they had any more of the tiles I had, they did not have any, nor could they get any.

Being we were in the midst of the install coupled with being an uncontrolled Epileptic who cannot drive meant we were stuck with what we had. So, we decided to go ahead and open the other seven boxes of tile to see if it were just a fluke; it was NOT a fluke. So, we picked and chose the best tiles possible from the seven boxes. We then installed those tiles in the center of the room, leaving the jacked up tiles for cuts and along the walls where they would hopefully draw less attention. Sadly, we did NOT have enough tiles to complete the center of the room, given there were THAT many tiles with foibles which were not able to be ignored. We finished the install, while we managed the installation process without issue, the tiles are ANYTHING but up to par.

There are so very many problems with this entire ordeal in installing these tiles. I don't like the fact that I bought this with my "nest egg" money, I scrimped & saved specifically for this remodel. Only to open the tiles I paid so much to purchase, to find they were absolutely screw-balled with foibles. The tiles were NOT square aka misshapen & mis-measured tiles, beneath the paper debris was stuck to the glue on the back of the tiles, broken edges that were still inside the unopened boxes that were heavily padded, and some tiles were even glued to one another, when carefully separated you learned that one was broken. How this tile in the attached photo ended up getting wood embedded in it's front, I have no idea?

I am UNHAPPY. I would rather have purchased American, paid more for them, and cut corners somewhere else in my remodel insuring my floor looked perfect! We worked too hard to have it turn out as it did. Live & Learn!

I use a 1/4" trowel to butter tiles before laying. With using Spacers, buttering tiles, laying tiles.( I prefer using a 2 x 4 and tap tiles across with a rubber Mallet to keep all tiles same heigth). Let One side tiles laid for 24 hours. 4th- Then do the same thing with other side of line.

Finishing Project: Once all the tiles are set, and all spacers removed. Mix up color of Choice unsanded Grout, and follow Manufacturers mixture Specs. Use grout Float and fill Spacing between Tiles.

I am wondering what cork flooring is. I am needing to fix something with my floor and someone told me I needed a new cork flooring. I don't understand.

I am not sure what flooring you have at the moment but sounds to me like someone is trying to sell you something. IF you already have cork flooring then it can be repaired, get another opinion from some other company. cork flooring comes in tiles that are laid down like other tiles with glue, it is recycled cork that has been compressed/glued/heated into flat hard sheets then cut into tile squares kind of like particle board. inexpensive and soft under the feet, good insulter as well. hope this gives you some clarity. always get a second opinion. take care, good luck.

40-60 tiles depending on what is in the room.If it is a water closet around 40 if it is a wide open room and the whole floor is to be covered,it will take closer to 60 tiles.I would go with a few more tiles than I needed just in case one breaks or a bad cut is made.It is better to have a lil extra than not enough.

Can ceramic tile be installed over old ceramic tile?

You can install tile over tile. However here are the risks. The new tiles will require at least 3/16" of tile adhesive UNDER the tiles when put in place after they have been pressed into position. Additionally the trim around the tiles willhave to be removed and elevated the distance of the tile thickness and the 3/16" grout distance. The tiles if on the second floor of a home will easily losen due to the expansion and contraction of the home and the difference in the 2 types of tiles expansion and contraction rates.

It is not difficult to remove old tiles. You use a flat bar type scraping tool and the old tiles usually will pop right up off the floor. You will have to break maybe 2 tiles to get started but after that they are easy to remove.

My experience in my own fully tiled in all rooms 2900 sq ft home in the tropics is that I have to remove the old tiles as over time the new tiles losen on top of the old tiles. I have tried it several times and have had at least 1 tile come loose each time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Door rubs on new tile floor. How do I fix this.

The best way to solve this is to remove the door and re-install it at the desired height. Last resort - cut jambs off, raise the threshold. cut the top off the door, reblock it and move it up in the jamb. Yes, I have done this before, when there was no room to raise the door. I managed a door shop and we cut and reblocked many steel doors at the top. I like to use construction adhesive to hold the block.
