A little more info may be needed. Does your TV say this as soon as you plug in your firestick or does it say this when you are trying to play a video? If the first hold down rewind "<<" while holding top circle of remote (outer ring) for 15 seconds. It is likely that your TV resolution is out of spec for the Firestick (4k?) and you will need to enable "legacy" (older) resolution mode on the Firestick. If this does not work, there are you You Tube videos on enabling this mode for your Firestick. If the second, then you are trying to play a video with an unsupported video Codec, in which case you would need to find a supported video.

SOURCE: Philips Gogear 1GB - File format not supported

There are a few different possibilities.

1)Your subscription to your digital music service such as Napster, etc has expired. Sorry - unless you renew your subscription, you will not be able to play these songs again.
2) Your songs have DRM-encryption on them. To check and see, right click on an individual song name in Windows Media Player, and click on "License" or "Digital Rights"; if the affected songs have DRM encryption, then get DRM-removal software.
3) Your songs do NOT have DRM-encryption on them. In this instance, follow the procedure for item#2, except click on the link in the License or digital Rights tab that says "acquire license" (make sure you are connected to the internet first).

SOURCE: I just bought my Philips 32" lcd tv and tried to hook up the ps3

you have to first plug in the s-video before you use hdmi so you can set it to HDMI on your ps3 when you go to your setting. Then it should work. If you already did that and it still doesnt work its probably the HDMI cord

Eh5000 wont play movies on usb stick

The TV can only play a specific format of video. You may be using MP4 files while the TV can only view 3GP or FLV formats; just try downloading a converter (I've used FLV Converter on Windows XP for years, works fine and very simple) and changing the file format.

I dont really have the main idea of the video format

Greetings - your device supports Windows Media Video 9 (wmv 9) and to convert to that format you are provided with Arcsoft conversion software.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that the device's screens resolution is 320x240 and is only capable of playing video with a bit-rate up to 384 kbps @ 30 fps. It's low quality video but watchable. The machine is mostly for music.

If you stay within those parameters you should be fine. Philips will release occasional firmware upgrades to fix bugs and add increased functionality to the player every so often so I would check this Webpage every so often.

The menu keeps going up and down on its own and menu pops up, even turning the tv off sometimes it will come back on

Hi gt
To answer your question;
We`re getting to see this problem more and more often on philips tv`s, and it usually has to do with software upgrade.
With your tv`s model number you can go on philips website and download the upgrade at the address below:;jsessionid=8888F7981C720E8018961175739D41D6.app106-drp2?groupId=SOUND_AND_VISION_GR_US_CARE&userCountry=us&categoryid=TV_CA_US_CARE&navAction=push&pageFrom=downloads&navCount=1&userLanguage=en
You will need a usb flash drive/memory stick to do this procedure and there is a file on how to do it.
If you have problems with it , let me have your model# and i`ll help you.
Hope this help good luck

I have the philips 120hz and some movies are smooth, others jump

I would advise knocking down the resolution. Try and use software, like red kawa, to convert a few of your movies to different formats till you find a decent one. A widely accepted codec setup is Divx/XVid (both are the same) and MP3 sound.

Choppy result from playing DIVX via USB Direct connection.

Try a DivX movie from a disc, memory sticks are not very fast, they are just convenient.
