Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Upon my return from being out of town yesterday, when I turned on the Phillips 50PF9830A flat screen TV (circa 2005, but has worked perfectly all this time), the settings MENU popped onto the screen, and will not go away. The TV is connected to a Comcast cable box and BOSE surround sound system. The only way to move through the MENU screen (with all the settings options) is to use the original Phillips remote. But, there is NO way to get the menu to disappear from the screen. If you navigate

KDL-46XBR3: Black Screen No Sound. The other day while watching TV, my sony screen went completely black, no sound either, no menu, no way to interact with the TV. Any thoughts on what the problem might be?


First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board. ... Flat Panel Televisions

All the cables are set up correctly, but I can't find the input channel on the tv that will let me play it.

Hi. I have a 5 and1/2 year old 42" Hitatchi Ultravision rear projection LCD T.V. Model 42V525. It has served us well all these years without needing a replacement bulb yet. (Touch wood).

I have U-verse in conjunction with my Phillips TV. Last night we accidently changed the aspect ratio from 1080ip to standard non definition wide screen. We lost the pictures but had sound. I spoke with the AT&T people and they said that this had caused the TV to overide their remote because it was an HD box that now had a TV with a standard setting. They said I had to get the TV back on to the HDTV setting but I can't get it to work. Do you have any ideas?


The easiest solution is to replace the box. Otherwise, you can try leaving the unit unplugged for a day or more to drain the power and ideally reset the box. ... Philips 34PW9818 34" TV
