The Philips Ambilight LCD TV was released in early 2009 and was one of the first on the market to offer cinema-proportion 3D television. Troubleshooting a Philips Ambilight LCD TV is a relatively easy process. Simple problems can be fixed by the set's owners, but the majority of other problems will require a service technician to come out and take a look at the Ambilight LCD TV.

  1. 1

    Replace all three batteries in the Ambilight LCD TV, if the TV is not responsive to the remote. The TV remote which is specifically made for the Ambilight TV can be purchased in several stores that specialise in electrical items.

  2. 2

    Unplug the Ambilight LCD TV direct from the electrical socket and from the back of the TV. Blow off any dust off the prongs of the plug. Plug the power cable back in to the bottom left of the TV.

  3. 3

    Move the Ambilight TV antenna to higher ground. Interference from electrical items can disrupt the signal you get to your TV.

  4. 4

    Push down on the two scart sockets in the centre of the Ambilight TV. If they are loose you will need to contact a service technician to replace them.

  5. 5

    Clean the whole of the Ambilight TV with a lint-free cloth. Wipe clean the two vents either side of the TV as a build of dust can cause problems for the fan inside the TV.

  6. 6

    Refer to the TV's support page if problems persist.

Tips and warnings

  • Power off the TV before attempting to try any of the above steps.
