Philips makes several televisions of different style, size and type. Occasionally, as with most electronics, Philips televisions can experience technical issues or even break down altogether. Fortunately, many issues experienced by Phillips television owners can be repaired without taking the television apart or sending it off to a technician.

LCD Television

The Philips LCD television model 55PFL5705D features native 1080p HD resolution and TruSound Surround sound and Netflix connectivity. If picture cannot be detected, none of these features are very useful. If no picture is displayed on the Philips LCD television, press “Source” on the remote control to ensure that the input being displayed is the one you are trying to view. If this does not resolve the issue, ensure that your HDMI cable is certified for use with the HDMI device. If your HDMI cable is certified, reset the television by powering it off and unplugging it from the wall. Replace the plug in the wall and restart the machine. If this does not resolve the issue, consult a certified technician for professional repairs.

CRT Televisions

The Philips 27PT9007D Flat Screen television includes a 27-inch flat screen standard resolution screen and Dolby digital stereo audio. One common problem with this television is the appearance of error messages on the screen such as “No Signal,” “No Program” or “Audio Only.” This happens occasionally if the signal being received by the television is weak or in audio only, but can also happen if the connections are incorrectly installed or faulty. Check the connection wires for loose connections or for frayed or damaged segments. If wires appear functional, try the television on a different input (e.g. “Video” or “TV”). If error messages do not cease, reset the television by powering it off and unplugging it from the wall.

Projection Televisions

The Philips 50PL9200D rear projection features a 50-inch screen and enhanced digital reception. This television can sometimes experience difficulty with the included remote control. If the remote control is not functioning with the television, clean the remote sensor on the remote control and on the television. If this does not solve the problem, check the batteries of the remote control to ensure enough power is going to the transmitter. If the batteries are fresh, reset the television by unplugging it from the wall and plugging it back in and try to power on the television with the remote. If functionality is not restored, consult a certified repair technician.
