Question about Philips 42PF9631D 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Hi... my TV used to work fine, until I moved it and had to unplug the cables. When I reconnected everything, it would not connect to the sound system. I only see the picture, but do not hear the sound. I lost my cable remote, but I am allowed to manipulate cable directly from the box. The power button is broken, but I am able to turn the TV off. I need an solution asap please.

I am unable to get a picture on hdmi when i connect my ps3, but am able to get sound when i use ps3 controller. any ideas ?


Steps
  1. Step 1 Check for an HDMI port Check the back of your television for an HDMI port and refer to your owner's manual for your television's resolution. A resolution of 1080p offers the highest quality.
  2. Most PS3 systems support 1.3 HDMI, but older systems may need a software update from the 1.1 or 1.2 version.
  3. Step 2 Disconnect cables Disconnect all the cables and adapters from the back of your PS3, and then unplug your TV to reduce the risk of shock as you work.
  4. Step 3 Connect HDMI cable Connect the HDMI cable. Reconnect the power cables on both the TV and the PS3 system.
  5. Step 4 Hold power button Hold down the power button until the PS3 beeps and continue holding it for an additional five seconds until the system makes a second beep.
  6. The Playstation 3 should detect the high definition cable and automatically adjust the settings to give you the best picture and sound possible.
  7. Step 5 Test the connection Test the connection. If the HDMI cable isn't working, turn everything off and reconnect the original cables to manually change the settings.
  8. Step 6 Adjust the settings Turn the system back on, select Settings, Display Settings, Video Output Settings, and then HDMI. Repeat the process for your Audio Settings. You can now experience your games with the highest video and audio quality available.

Why wont the tv pick up any HDMI input?


Hello. CEC stands for Consumer Electronics Control. This allows you to use one remote control to operate multiple devices that are connected with the HDMI cables. Since all of the equipment worked before the power surge, it is very likely it will work again. We just need to "reset" everything.

Start by unplugging all devices from AC power and disconnecting the HDMI cables. Assuming you are using the TV remote to control everything, pug the TV back into AC Power and turn it on. Go thru all standard setup on the TV as needed (set date and time, scan for channels, etc). Turn the TV off.

Connect the first HDMI device to AC Power, connect the HDMI cable and then turn on the TV and the HDMI device. Check to see if the remote controls both devices. If it does not, go thru the Setup options on the HDMI device (you may need to use the original remote control) and see if there are any settings that apply to the HDMI CEC settings (enbable or turn them on).

Repeat this for additional HDMI devices.

By unplugging both the controlling device (TV) and the controlled device (such as a Bluray/DVD player) and then reconnecting them in the correct order, you should be able to get all devices working on the same remote again.

My sony bravia model KDL-46EX500 is three years old. It has worked fine until this morning when I tried to turn it on. The cable box and everything else comes on. I unplugged it for an hour, but it still...


Have you checked the power cord is firmly connected to the power source (wall plug? or wherever) and have you checked the cord connection into the tv?
Pull them off and reconnect
If the red (standby) light does not come on, then you have an internal problem and these cant be fixed without opening up the tv. Dont do it- it has to go to the dealer

Have no sound for TV, everything else is fine


First check to see if you get it on all inputs (DVD, Cable, etc.). If you get no sound on all inputs, then do a hard reset by unplugging the TV from the wall overnight and plugging it back in and test again. If this does not work, then the main board needs to be replaced.

If you do not get it on all inputs, most likely it is just a loose connection. Check the connections going out of the source and into the TV for something that might have come loose. If everything is okay, test the bad input with something that you know has some on a different input on the TV. If this still does not work, replace the main board or simply do not use the bad input.

Denon avr-1907 sound from TV stopped working


Help with hooking PS3 to a Denon Receiver. It worked before, but I had to move everything to a different location and when I hooked it back up the PS3 has sound but no picture. I have it hooked directly to the receiver with and HDMI cable (the receiver is hooked up to our cable box which is directly hooked to the tv via HDMI cable).

No sound on my 32'' Insignia LCD HDTV


I have a question? Do you move your Television frequently, OR do you unplug it frequently when it's not in use? I have found that doing either or both of those things can bring on problems, especially audio problems.

I've had the disappearing sound problem twice with my Element FLX-2610. This latest time I was stumped because the full scan didn't resolve the problem. And of course, the sparse manual that comes with the TV contains no troubleshooting advice at all.

But I did find a suggestion on another sveral other sites: Reset the TV. You might have a small reset button (like you would find on a DSL modem) somewhere on your TV but there is a manual way to do it two. Whichever way you do, MAKE SURE to disconnect every single device (yep, it's a pain) and UNPLUG the TV before doing this.

To reset with a reset button, disconnect devices and unplug the TV. Depress the reset button for 5 seconds. Reconnect devices, then plug in the TV.

Manual Procedure:
Disconnect all devices
Unplug the Television
Using the on/off button on the Television (NOT on the remote), depress and hold the button for 5 seconds.
Reconnect the devices, then plug in the TV.

Unless something has shorted out or burned up inside, this resetting, as a last resort, should fix the audio problem. Worked like a charm for me!

Good Luck!

Display not working


how down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.
