Question about Philips 42PFL5332D 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Just recently I have been getting the rumored shadows on my tv. I have DIRECTV and some channels leave that shadow effect when I change the channel. Sometimes it takes a while for it to go away. I also have noticed that going vertically that the screen has a somewhat permanent shadow along the whole screen. This tv is only 3 years old. What is the best possible solution to fix this. And I do have the HDMI cables hooked up.

That will require some service. My opinion?...A power supply voltage not up to spec. Check the web for service people near you

How do i fix the shadow on my Samsung TV?


Well, it has a bad T-con board. You'll have to pay for the part, but you can fix it yourself. The board can be replaced easily. The T-Con board is usually near the center of the screen when you have the back removed. Just look at the ***** holes with arrows pointing to them and take out only those screws. Once the back is off, you'll see a board under a metal cover(not always) The board has flat wide ribbon cables that go to the bottom of the screen. Get the numbers off the board and go here for parts: TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy

Letters blurr in spots and black boxes leave a shadow on the screen


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

How to hook my directv to digital input to lcd tv j32l637


I don't know what flat screen tv you have,but you must be aware of the coaxial input behind the TV.It could be analog input,digital input and OUTPUT!!
Anyway,if you connect your basic directv box to your digital input,it will not serve you any purpose to get HD channels and you don't have the HD directv box.The TV will not display digital channel for you because if you use coaxial input to TV,you should be under either channel 3 or 4 and be sure either channel had been saved under memory.In order to change channels,you will need to change it from your directv box.
JUST LIKE a VCR connect to TV.TV will be under channel 3 or 4,and you will change your channels from the VCR.Don't forget to scan all the channels from the VCR!

Not able to scan stations


I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or Ch.4.to view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!
