Our Philips ambilight plasma tv is 2.5 years old only. What could be causing the tv menu to pop out every 3 minutes? It just happened suddenly.

You can fix this yourself with a software upgrade - get the upgrade from Philips website - go to www.usasupport.philips.com, enter your model number, click on the verison of your model ending in /37, and click on "Software & Drivers"; click on the link that says "Firmware Upgrade - Software". Instructions are on the same page - make sure you only transfer the .upg file, not the entire zip file to a portable memory stick.

Good luck!

I have a philips 42PF9641D/10 and the ambilight on the left side will not come on (lcd tv) any ideas? On turning on the TV both ambilights came on then the left side went off after about a minute!


probably you got a processing unit problem, which makes your tv stopping recognizing the screen information .
you should try resetting all factory default settings, if this doesn't work, you will have to take the TV to an assistance center .

Hi Mikshanks,

I had the same problem with my TV. It was a horizontal problem with different shades of color, and black spots. I replaced my Upper & Lower Y-buffer boards. Your Y-sus board should be okay since it still powers on the screen. You should replace the Y-buffers Upper & Lower, and it should work. I hope this helps.

best regards,
