Well I managed to fix the dreaded Philips Black Screen of Death.... I think. Nothing worked for me, it wasn't temperature related, or the inverter, or any other board on the back, nor was it the lamp. It turns out it was that I need to lean it forward. Any reason why this would solve the problem. Is there some leveling problem?
There isn't any known issue with this unit that would force you to have to lean it forward, what I would do is disconnect the LVDS cable and check the connectors for corrosion and clean it if neccessary or maybe the set has the chassis pinching in on that cable, I would check for any kinks or pinches in the cable itself

Unplug the set and let it stand for two minutes. Plug it back in and see if it works. If that doesn't work contact Philips support: http://www.support.philips.com/support/contact/contact_page.jsp?userCountry=us&userLanguage=en
I believe a firmware update can fix this issue. However to be sure I would need your entire model number, including the numbers after the slash. You can put that entire model number into Philips support website, http://www.usa.philips.com/#/headernav/consumer/
Once you get to your TV's support page, you can look on the right hand side and find the firmware information. First I suggest you read the Read Me file to familiarize yourself with the update process and what issues it fixes. Then you can download the firmware to your computer so you can upload it to a USB drive to perform the update.
Your TV is in warranty period I thinks. If so, company is liable and will repair it free fo charge. There is "repair,replace, refund gurantees. Your gurantee card and broshure will tell you that. Look at it.
For what you are going to take the risk.

I think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know

Picture is not centered on monitor leaving a 2 1/2 inch; black border on Philips LCD By dmorrow54 on Nov 13, 2007 Again, nothing in manual for Philips LCD will correct the fact that the picture in HD-D mode will not center. The picture runs off the monitor on the left (facing the monitor) with a 2 1/2" black border on the right (facing the monitor). Using the format button on the remote of directional arrows will not correct the issue. The wide-screen/ full-screen function with format does nothing. Moving into TV mode, the format function works to display screen in several ways 4:3, 19:2, super-zoom, wide-screen, full-screen. Help, please. posted 3 years ago
I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me. Add a comment

WOW! It works!! The picture on my Magnavox (aka Philips) 37MF321D had shifted to the right. I figured I had a big repair bill coming up soon. But hey! Just used the TV remote as described by "Guest', and re-centered the picture to the left. Wallah! Thanks ""Guest" whomever you are! Reply
