Philips 120Hz 2ms 7403/7603 Series Discussion - Page 166

My 47PFL7403D/27 does not seem to be handshaking with the DELL STUDIO 1535 laptop running Win 7 via HDMI-HDMI. I've updated the TV's firmware as well as updated all my laptop drivers to no avail. All my other components that are connected via HDMI (cable box, BD HT) are working so I'm thinking that there must be a problem with the laptop. What is strange is that when I connect this laptop to my other TV (Sharp Aquos LC-42D85U) I don't have any problems. Any suggestions on how to get this working would be appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!!!

Can someone please send me the link for the previous firmware version. It seems phillips does not keep older versions. I upgraded to version 1.15 and my unit stills turns itself off at random times. I email Phillips but is been almost 2 weeks and no replies... Thank You

If anyone comes here looking for updated firmware, I have 4 official ones available on my website (1.07, 1.13, 1.11, and 1.15 [latest]). One is listed as 42PFL7403D/27 while the other three are 47PFL7403D/27. I was told that all the firmwares should work in all the models regardless of first two digits. I never tested that however.

My 3 year old 47 inch has now developed a problem. While on, the TV now goes to black while the audio remains. Only way to get the picture back is to shut it off and then on again. Any ideas what it could be?

Update: And now it looks like it is over. It went to black again and i turned it off and then back on. When it came back, there was this "tsss" sound from it and the picture was flickering. Also the back started to smell like it was burning. I unplugged it.

anyway you could display something static on it? Preferably something white with black text. If you can take a flashlight and shine it on screen in that area and see if you can see the white area and the black text. If you can see that it may be the backlight, or the power supply circuit for the backlight that is failing.

Looks like its totally dead now. It comes on but within 5 minutes it goes to like 10% brightness and then complete black. Shutting it off and then on brings it back but it starts to make that "tsss" noise and i actually smell something from the back of it like its burning. Off to Costco to get another one i guess. Not sure if its worth trying to repair it when new 47 LCDs can be had for $600. I guess i will pay for a 5 year warranty this time.

Shame you didn't live near me I'd love to open it up and see what happened.

Seems like i am not alone with this problem. What a shame. I know all manufacturers have their own issues but it will be hard to get another Philips after what happened to me.

I've had this TV (47PFL7403D/27) for about 5 years now with no problems and last week it 'popped' and went dark - no sound or video. I picked up a power supply unit at Shop Jimmy (cheap) and it took more time to get all the little screws off then it did to actually replace the board, very easy. Just posting in case others start seeing this with this model..

I have a 47PFL7403D/27 that makes no reference to Easylink or HDMI-CEC in the setup menu. Is there any way to turn it off? Service Menu perhaps?
