You need to reset the player as it is possible that the GO Gear has hung up. Also please check if the files that are int he player are the converted files and are not corupt so as to hang up the player.
Look for the reset pin-hole to press into for reset.

Can you adjust resolution on a Philips 60pp9202/17f

Your tv goes up to 1080i. But it will only display the resolution its given, such as a (DVR,Cable,Satelite,GameConsole(wii,ps,xbox)) has its own resolution and whatever resolution it is at is what the tv gets and displays. Same if it runs thru a Surround sound that only supports certain video resolutions such as 480 or 720 and not 1080 then it will not display a 1080 resolution even if your tv can. The only way you would change the resolution on the tv is if you did it in the first place for some reason or a old school antenna mix up (unlikely). Also just in case the aspect ratio is not the same as resolution so just in case your trying to get rid of black bars or have cut off image or to get a rectangle or square image thats not the same and usually can be adjusted.

Monitor is not displaying optimum resolution, all drivers are installed. not displaying readable display at 1080 resolution

The tv will only display the best available resolution that is being fed into it. (EX. An older DVD will not display in 1080p.) Check your source that it will display in 1080p. The other thing is if you are coming off of a cable box and having this problem you will have to make sure you are coming off the HDMI port and not the composite port to get the full 1080pl

Explain this phrase and give the solution. cyberlink youcam does not support a screen resolution smaller than 1024*768

  1. The resolution is about how many pixels are used to display images on your screen. How you change the resolution depends on what version of windows you have but they're all pretty similar. Hold the mouse pointer over your desktop (i.e. any programs that are open minimised)
  2. Press the Right mouse button and a menu will appear.
  3. In windows VISTA click "personalise" (in earlier versions click properties)
  4. Click DISPLAY SETTINGS (in windows vista, DISPLAY in earlier versions)
  5. You'll see a bar with HIGH at one end and LOW at the other end. Beside the bar it will show the resolution. If you slide the marker on the bar up or down the resolution will change. Set it at the resolution you need and click APPLY.
  6. You'll get an option to keep the new setting. Click YES if everything is displayed ok. If not click NO.

I need the service mode sequence for my philips 51pp9100d/37 so I can manually change the resolution on my tv. The resolution somehow was changed and when I HDMI my laptop to the tv it wont display t

I suspect that you may be using a cable or sat box rather than that set's internal atsc tuner.
Sometimes these boxes are not set up properly or reset themselves to a lower resolution.
Go into your box's settings menu nd look for the resolution settings. Verify that all of the modes or at least the maximum resolution for your set is enabled.
