Black Screen There is sound, and I am able to change the channels because I can hear it when I press the button it goes silent, but I can not see any picture. I have hooked up the TV to my channel source but all I hear is the white noise. I can not even hear the people talking on the TV if there were any. I need to know what to do to be able to get a picture on the TV. Thanks.

    I have a similar problem... my tv is connected to DISH and I can see the Dish menus and info bar. The audio sounds great, but the screen is black. A while back it was making a crackling noise when you turned it off or on. It still makes that noise, but this morning their is no visible picture. Last night the picture was beautiful as it had been in the past.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. The TV is at least five years old. it went out this morning 5-12-08.

    Don't have extended warranty... want to self repair.

You have to turn up the volume to 38+ in order to hear the TV, when you use to be able to hear it at 10, is there a control board that goes out and what Is the name of it?


Hi Geoff, I hope I can help you with this. If you are using an accessory device (DVD, DVR) check cables to see that they are secure and if device has audio out option that it is set correctly. Also check to see that Video and Audio cables are connected to matching inputs on your set.
If you are using DVI to HDMI you will need to use a separate digital audio cable. DVI cables do not carry audio signal. After attaching the audio cable if you still do not hear sound you may need to set Digital Audio In. To do so:
  1. Press Menu Button on remote.
  2. Press the cursor ring down to highlight SETUP.
  3. Press the cursor ring left to enter SETUP menu.
  4. Press the cursor ring down to highlight SOURCE.
  5. Press the cursor ring left to enter SOURCE menu.
  6. Press the cursor ring down to highlight DIGITAL AUDIO IN.
  7. Press the cursor ring down to select the source you want to associate Digital Audio with. HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 in this case. You might need a software update also.
    The latest software solves the issues below:
    1. TV (Plasma 42" and 50") will not turn ON/shut off itself and Red LED blinks 4- times. Recover if main switch on/off.
    2. 37" LCD full white screen appear when upgrade software.
    3. Some channels not available after turn ON.
    4. Delta volume changes, not remembered.
    5. Preferred channel changes, not remembered.
    6. Green or yellow static (sometime snowy) on HDMI picture.
    7. Picture and sound loss for 5 to 10 sec (green LED is still ON) and back to normal.
    8. Audio loss in all inputs and can be recovered when main switch ON and OFF.
    9. TV set turn ON by itself/ green LED light up and goes off when set is ON.
    10. Intermittent audio loss in NTSC RF channel.
    11. Crack sound with high input signal.
    12. Include the possibility to download the rating table (RRT5 capability) for digital programs.
    13. No video/ no picture with sound.
    14. Intermittent On-Screen Menu pop up by itself and can be removed by pressing the 'MENU' button.
    15. Channel information display too long.
    16. Improvement on scramble channel.
    How to check the current software version on my TV set?
    1. Press 'MENU' button on remote control to display the on-screen menu.
    2. Select TV MENU and press the cursor right.
    3. Select INSTALLATION and press the cursor right.
    4. Select SOFTWARE UPGRADE and press cursor right.
    5. Select CURRENT SOFTWARE INFO to display the current software version on your TV set.
    6. If the TV software version is lower than the version posted on the website means your TV set needs to be upgraded.
    7. Follow the instruction in the user manual or Firmware Upgrade Readme file on how to upgrade your software.
    Where can I find the latest software for my TV set?
    The Firmware Upgrade Software and Readme File documents can be found on the Philips support website. Refer to the SOFTWARE section.

How do I get the picture?


The TV is usually set to Channel 3 or Channel 4. You may have a switch on the back of the VHS recorder near which is marked Ch3 Ch4.

Once you correct this, try the following procedure.

Some VHS have a tracking button that allows the user to tune to the best signal. The tracking can also be done from the remote controller.

Usually that tracking function is used as follows.
While movie is playing on the VHS unit and signal gets fuzzy, press the channel key repeatedly (for example >> to increase the channel number). f after awhile pressing the same channel change button does not find a better picture, you should press the other channel change button (to decrease the channel number <<) to see if the picture improves.

If that does not work, IT DOES NOT MEAN that you tv/vcr combo unit is defective. It could just be the movie. The tape is magnetic and it might have been accidentally demagnetized.

If picture is better with another movie/tape, your unit is definitely OK.

About 8 months old...one channel does not work...I've tried speakers and headset, one channel silent on both... we've had lightening storms, I'm on a surge protector, is it a fuse or a button I need to...


Did problem happen suddenly, or did the sound fade out slowly over time. Either way, this is not a fuse or button problem. Sometimes the volume knob will fail and you will hear sound from only one channel. May be able to order a new volume knob component.
