View Full Version : Philips 32PFL3605H backlight problem

04-10-2012, 01:16 PM

- I use Philips 32PFL3605H as a PC screen.
- The firmware is up to date - TPM51E 2.08.
- It is connected with my PC through a DVI to HDMI cable.
- In the TV settings, "PC Mode" option is turned ON.
- But, even the brightness is set to 0, the backlight is still very bright. Probably there is some problem with the "dynamic backlight", which can't be turned off while in PC Mode.
- On the other side, while I watch movies (still in PC Mode), when a very dark scene start, the backlight completely turns off. It turns on again when a brighter scene appear. Probably the problem is the "dynamic backlight" again.
- I don't have these problems when the PC Mode is turned OFF, and the backlight is excellent when that "dynamic" is off. But the colors, contrast and sharpness are awful for PC use.

- So, is there a way to fix this "dynamic backlight" thing by myself?

Thanks in advance...

Probably can't be fixed by the end-user.
Is there any chance this problem to be fixed with some update in future?
Do you still make updates for 2010 models?

I have talked to our Engineers here, but they said there is nothing to be changed on that TV as we can see any error in that case.

So, it means that there won't be any firmware update about the problems I'm experiencing, right?
