No when I use the dvd player it closes down normally, Iam concern`d that nothing has appeared before having been plug`d in for the last eight years, what`s change`d and will it damage a excellent T.V
All that I have ` plugge`d into the T.V is the Sky system and the Philips dvd which I can watch normally ( whats hap`nd to make this show in the last six month`s having been fine for the previous eight years )
Anthony, a few weeks ago I took all associated cables out overnight!
I still have the banner. However if I just put the set on for say five to ten minutes in the morning no banner!
Anthony, I have now tried that (yesterday), and still have the banner prior to closing down! all I would like to know is that this will not do any long term damage to a excellent T.V,

Anthony, because Ia`m not that confident with both computers and T.V`s I will contact a T.V engineering firm on Monday and hand It over to them! I was hoping to short cut this event initially by contacting you but ultimately my hope`s have been dash`dl .I will let you know how they get on with it (more money!)>
I will be in touch, thankyou
I wll rate you then.
Anthony what do you mean by a firmware issue? Iam still waiting for the engineers to arrange collection.
Anthony, many thanks I`am still waiting for the engineers to call( all loan sets are out), I have spoken to them about "firmware" problems and they have heard of it but never encountered it .I will let them "follow the guide carefully" I feel theres too much to o wrong if I attempted it!
Adrian you must have spoke with the receptionist as firmware is a daily duty in a TV workshop
If the firmware does not work then the mainboard is replaced
Just so you understand this is a procedure the most likely cause is bad firmware
Let me know
Adrian I don't receive any credit from the site until you rate the answer positively so please consider doing that thank you
Anthony, basically my local firm do not want to know! I went to Currys PC world and spoke to them and they said th ey would send it off for repair for a price of £100. As they told me that iam looking at new T.V`s of £300.I will wait for the sales and get a new (not philips ) t.v.
Anthony, Iv`e rated you excellant, thanks for all the advice it`s not your fault that I cannot get a response from the only T.v engineer on the Island! (are firmware problems ) a common thing in T.V`s or is it only Philips sets?.
Anthony, I rated you an excellent with my last submission. When I attempted it again I was informed that it would be another £20 out of my account, thanks for all your help (hopefully I will get past Xmas with the set! will I be able to use it as a games monitor after? have a nice Xmas.
