Question about Philips 42PF5521D 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Hi guys I have a Phillips Plasma TV 42PF5521D/10 model UK version bought in 2008 Guess what untill now i only used the HDMI ports to connect a Home Media Center PC to watch HD content. So last week i saw on a good deal on a STB satellite HD receiver FTA. i bought it, but when i plug the HDMI cable on the HDMI ports it simply says No Input Signal. I have tried both HDMI ports on the TV.... I think is not a Port problem otherwise my Home Media Center would not work with the DVI to HDMI cable conected on the HDMI ports. Any suggestions ??? the STB receive support all systems that the TV support Also. NTSC, PAL 50hz and 60hz. I have tried different setups but still the same Problem. I also know that is not the STB faulty as he Works 100% on other 26inch LG plasma TV perfectly. I have also tried different SETs of HDMI cables from 1.1 to 1.3 cables. i really need some help on this one as i am kind of lost....

Hi First, remember the old HDMI reset tech tip. Unplug all HDMI cables (one end will do.) Then remove power from all things in play. No, not just turned off but remove the AC. Wait 5 to 10 minutes, hookup re -test thanks

SOURCE: Philips LCD TV "47, model PFL 8404H/12, NO SIGNAL on all 4 HDMI

This is quite tricky as it was working until last night and suddenly stopped receiving signals. What can happen wrong?
Do you have any other Player or other HDMI cables to try out. Sometimes the cables would be damaged or PC may fail to detect the HDMI.

Try this out from Philips helpdesk where there is new SW and FAQs are available.

Let me know if you are not able to upgrade the FW (if you do not get the support on ugprading)

Does it work on the cable/antenna input jack? Can you get the menu screen to show up? If none of the inputs work and you can't get a menu screen to show up, then it sounds like you may have a bad YSUS driver board.

I just bought a phillips blu ray and trying to hook it up to my sanyo 50" plasma through a hdmi i get video but no sound the tv says to use the dvi port and audio 3 inputs but the blu ray does not hav


Hello there, the hdmi cable is a great way to get high definition video from a bluray player to a tv, but if the bluray player is part of a surround sound system you will need to get the sound to the tv separately. There is often a red and white audio terminal in the rear of the bluray player, sometimes located next to a yellow terminal, these are known as a component connection as each component (coloured terminal) is separate and operates a separate function, but all 3 connections can be used together to create a SCART equivalent. You may need to connect an 'Audio Component to 3.5mm jack' cable from the white and red terminals to the headphone/line in socket on the tv.

alternatively, as wilth my player, there is a button on the remote which switches the audio source from component, hdmi, SCART, etc, this may be the same for you.

hope this helps.

Is the 42" philip plasma


If you really want, you can use an old CRT TV as a monitor provided you get it connected.... so your plasma... YES. If your PC has a DVI port, you could use a DVI - HDMI cable to connect. If your PC does NOT have a DVI port, you could install a video card that does... better yet, get a video card that has a HDMI port. This way, you'll only need a HDMI cable to connect the PC to the TV for audio and video.

My sansung pn50a460s4dxza says it is 3d ready. how can i use this feature on my tv.


Your tv is a 2008 model, legacy 3d tv and requires a lot more than a current 3d HDTV does to view 3d. Today with a current 3d HDTV, Normally you only need a 3d source like a 3d Bluray movie and 3d glasses from Samsung and a HDMI cable connection from bluray player to HDTV. See below for your TV. You need a PC and IR emitter and Samsung 3d glasses plus user selected options on the tv.
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV How do Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs work?
Samsung 3-D Ready HDTVs are enabled by Digital Light Processing (DLP(R)) or Plasma Display Panel (PDP) engines that are capable of very fast refresh rates (120Hz). The inherent speed of these display technologies enables high quality stereoscopic 3-D by alternatively displaying left and right eye images. The display is synchronised with 3-D shutter glasses to provide the observer with a vivid perception of depth.
How do I connect my PC to a Samsung 3-D Ready HDTV?
The DVI output from the PC's graphics card must be connected to the TV's 3-D compatible HDMI port using a DVI-to-HDMI cable (or a HDMI cable plus a DVI to HDMI adaptor).
Alternatively, some newer graphics cards have a HDMI port instead of a DVI port. In this case, simply use a HDMI cable to connect the PC directly to the TV.
On all models, the 3-D compatible HDMI port is identified by the letters "DVI". (eg, "HDMI 3/DVI IN" or "HDMI 1/DVI IN")
What other equipment do I need to enjoy 3-D on my 3-D Ready HDTV?
  • Windows PC with DVI output
  • Compatible 3-D Shutter glasses and IR emitter with VESA compatible sync connector
How do I connect the IR emitter to the 3-D TV to support wireless 3-D shutter glasses?
The IR emitter should be connected to the "3D SYNC OUT" socket. The emitter should be placed on top of the TV with the LEDs facing towards the room. How do I turn the TV into 3-D mode?
Ensure that the TV source is set to "HDMI 3/DVI" (or "HDMI 1/DVI" for 720p models).
Plasma HDTVs Press the Tools button and select 3D Effect. Update from Off to Mode1.

Hey iJust bought a 42 inch Phillips lcd tv And i am trying to attatch my lToshiba E100 Satllite lap top to it via the HDMI ports on both the tv and laptop but nothing is happening


When you have the tv connected and both on, Switch the TV to the HDMI feed then press the [FN] key and hold and start pressing the [F4] key counting to 10 between presses. You have to tell the computer bios to activate the external port and send video signal to that port.

Audio drop outs when using HDMI connection on new Viera


The way I solved it was to go into advanced settings and change the audio input connected to the hdmi port to component. I had to run an audio cable from the cable box into the TV but since I did this we haven't had the problem.
