Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television

1 Answer

BLUE LINE My magnavox 42' LCD tv was delivered on 9/6/07. The next day it was installed w/the proper HDMI connections using our cable providers HD cable box. Two days later on 9/10 two fine blue/green lines have now appeared down the middle of the screen from top to bottom. I was told by a tech support rep. to unplug tv and cable box for a brief period of time to reset the signal and was told there maybe a sofware problem w/the tv. The two lines also appear when playing dvd,s and when the tv menu screen is on. It appears there maybe a hardware failure somewhere.

Call philips to get this srviced under warranty. this repair might take a few weeks because the failure could essentially be any one of several parts. first thing to try is the ssb, then the logic board and lvds cable. if none of these work then you need a new panel

How do i hookup my magnavox mrd 210 to my lcd tv for surround sound. have tried to connect with rca wires in back of tv to surround sound system and nothing. tried side of tv and nothing. my surround sound...

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

How do I connect my hdtv cable box to the tv/monitor. There is no hdmi input on the tv.

Your setup has a TV/Monitor and a audio/video box. The A/V box is connected to the TV and other source inputs connect to the A/V box. Hookup your cable box to the A/V box either using component video (green, blue, red) RCA cables from cable box outputs to the A/V box inputs OR the A/V box also has a DVI/HDMI input jack which may work using a HDMI cable.
Select the proper source.

When i try to play a Blue Ray DVD, the LG LCD tv gets a swath of bright green random pixels across the middle of the screen. The player is connected by an HDMI cable. I have replaced the cable twice,...

Pickled! You did right by checking the cables, the tv inputs and as well the output on the blue ray...even by replacing the blue ray. Which leads to a problem within the tv monitor. I can only guess there is something in the software of the tv that is causing the problem. I can only suggest two options. If can connect the tv to a network via CAT5 cable, you can do a frimware update to the tv. Sort of like a software update. If it is not available, try to swap the HDMI cable for the 5 RCA component video. It will still carry HD signal, just not as crisp as the HDMI. I would be floored if the same thing happened with the component cable.

Connect tv to cable box with hdmi lead

You will need an HDMI to DVI cable which are available in the shops, even ASDA has one but I don't know how good it is. Or you can buy an adapter that will plug into one of the ends of the HDMI cable and then plug into the DVI socket at the back of the TV. The DVI input is video only so you will need audio leads for sound. These will connect from the output of your source, say, blue ray or sky HD (Left and right audio sockets ) to the audio L/R at the back left of the TV (on the block next to the three component video connections and s-video connections)

HDMI Connection

Yes it does, HDMI can handle more information and provide better picture and sound. Works like this, Cable-OK, Component-Even Better, HDMI and DVI-both Digital and the best sound and video. The only way to get full HD is with HDMI or DVI. Hope this helps

Colours turns blue and green from HD channels

The most likely cause of your problem is the cable box HDMI output. If you have some extra cables, try connecting the TV to the cable box using the component connections. I'll bet your problem will go away. Don't let the cable company lie to you; I work on Sony TV's everyday and see plenty of cable box HDMI issues. Some of my customers have exchanged their boxes 4 or 5 times and still have HDMI issues. Your best bet is to use the component outputs or switch to Dish or Direct TV, as they DON"T have HDMI problems. If this solution works, be sure to rate it. Thanks!

Connection for tv cable to hitachi 42" plasma Tv

there is no cable slot. the monitor is not a receiver. it has no tuner in it. it will need a signal from a tuner box. and that must be fed to the tv with an hdmi cable or a dvid cable for hd to work. see your manual for further information on cables. see your cable supplier for information on hd boxes available in your area. if you do not buy hd service, you will not get an hd signal. so you will see little difference from a non hd device. your dvd player may have hd capabilities, but will also need the same cable to deliver true hd signal.
the good news is that its fixable by using the right equipment.
good luck
