Hi, Do a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a couple of hours. Most current models will reset to default condition this way. If this does not correct the fault, pls post back with the brand/model/version of your unit. Good luck and kind regards.

if you haven't unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, try that. otherwise, if that doesn't help, probably a board needs to be replaced. call phillips for service.

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

I will be happy to help. 88% of LCD tv problems are with the backlight, the symptoms you described indicate a probable inverter malfunction. Lets do a simple test to check the functionality.

It's possible that you have a faulty component on one of the circuit boards inside your tv.
It sounds like your backlight is working OK since the screen is lit up despite having no video so the fault is either with the MAIN BOARD, the POWER SUPPLY BOARD, or the LCD CONTROLLER BOARD (otherwise known as the TCON BOARD).
Does the sound work properly for any of the inputs or is that blank as well?
Was there a power failure or brief power flicker that you noticed at your home recently?
These can precipitate failures as the LCD TVs are succeptible to power fluctuations.
Is your TV still under warranty?
Are you willing and capable to unscrew and open up the case to the tv to conduct a visual inspection and some basic troubleshooting?
One asy thing you can try before starting the hardware / circuit board troubleshooting is to unplug the power cable to your set and leave it out overnight. Plug it back in the next day and try turning it on again to see if the fault was cleared by the reset.
If that does not solve the problem then just comment back here to this page with the answers to the above questions and I will go into much greater detail about the various troubleshooting procedures you can employ to diagnose the problem with your tv.
Thank you very much and good luck.
