This is a technical problem. I was on the phone with Philips for an hour. This is in all modes (DVD, Cable, etc.) There is a 5-6" Gap on the left side in 4:3 mode. In widescreen it takes up the space but the picture still runs off the right side of the screen. Even in MENU the words run off the right side. so it seems the picture is off to the right and wider than it should be.

I just unlock mine PD7012/37 today, I think you can use de same sequence: 1- Power on without dvd; 2- In SKIP button, right side of SETUP, press "RIGHT", "LEFT", "RIGHT", "LEFT", "RIGHT", "RIGHT", "LEFT"; 3- Will appear a menu, go to REGION using "UP" navigate button, and press OK, select "TEST 0" using navigate button and press OK. 4- Press STOP; 5- Enjoy.
1. Press mode button (bottom button left side) until the time and day appears. 2. With time and day showing press and hold set button (bottom right side). 3. City codes will flash. Press start/stop to select city that represents your time zone. 4. Press mode daylight saving time setting flashes. press start/stop to obey or disregard radio signal for atomic time. 5. Press mode hour flashes. Press start/stop to change hour (include AM/PM) Repeat the above step for the remaining values ( minute, seconds, month, day etc) Press set an any step when finished.
Make sure you're plugged into a good outlet, carefully check the power cable to check if a pet might have chewed though it, etc. And if the AC cord is detachable (usually one end is special) and you have an alternate, try swapping them.
If it's still under warranty, call Philips technical or customer support for a possible replacement.
First, try to refinalize the disc if it failed the first time by going into the edit menu. Sometimes finalization just fails the first time.
If you are recording on 2-hr mode, and the length of your recording is an 1hr 50 min or more, there will not be enough space left on the disc to finalize. Going forward, your best solution would be to record in 3- or 4-hour mode for every 2 hrs worth of recording (6-hour mode for 3-5 hours of recording, etc.). Just to quickly decipher recording modes: 2-hr mode (sometimes called SP Mode, depending on DVD player) will record about 2 hours worth of material on a standard blank DVD (but some extra space would be required for finalization); 4-hour mode would record 4 hours worth of material on a standard DVD; 6-hour mode would record 6 hours, etc.
As far as salvaging the recordings you have already made - load the burned, yet unfinalized DVD's into your computer. Copy the files onto the desktop or some easy-to-find location on your computer. Then use a program, free or otherwise (I personally reccomend Nero or Roxio), to re-burn the discs. The newer version of Nero automatically finalizes the disc, but some software requires you to select an option that allows you to "close disc" or "finalize" the disc. (In computer lingo, "closing" means the same thing as "finalizing").
Test the speakers by changing source to the disc mode, and inserting a dvd into the HTS. If you get sound on all 5 speakers in DVD mode, then your speakers are still good. If you don't get sound on all 5 speakers, then press the "SURR" button to try the sound in stero, dolby, or other modes - one of these should give you sound on all 5 speakers. If you still don't get sound on all 5 speakers in dvd mode, then there is a problem with the speakers or speaker wires.
If you do get sound on all 5 speakers in disc (dvd) mode, but not when in TV mode, then take out the red and white AV cable, go buy a digital audio or SPDIF cable, and plug in the digital audio or SPDIF cable from the digital audio OUT of your TV or cable/satellite box to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS.
Looks like it will have to come apart.
Can you see how?
Usually the top/side casing is simply 5/6 screws
2 each side and 1/2 at the back then slide back away from the from panel.
