[BUG]: TVs switches from Standby to a mode 'like "Quick Start"' (="Off")....
because I have nothing found round about problems with TVs Quick-Start-Mode, so I will post the following recurrent bug with possible estimated number of unknown cases; see on German Firmware-Feedback-Forum, Post #8, too.
Here the short form...
Title / Description: "TV switches automatically in a Mode like 'Quick Start'" from 'normal Standby'. Like, because first the 'Quick Start' - Mode is definitely Off and second, the TV does not return automatically back into 'normal Standby'; electrical consumption in 'normal Standby' ~ 0.1 Watt, in 'like "Quick Start"' - mode ~ 23 Watt or more with connected devices (42PFL6877K/12).
Bug / Problem: If the problem is active and the TV in 'normal Standby', there are possible tree times per day the TV was automatically switching into these 'like Quick Start' - mode! See below 'Problem trigger'. Remember: "Quick Start", "Activation" is "Off".
The TV remains in this 'like Quick Start' - mode, until the TV is switched on and back to Standby!
Bug trigger (tested): The bug is triggered by changing the "Quick Start" (Page 19, User Manual) from 'Off' to 'Automatic', then to 'Manual' with changing and saving the 'Timeframes' and last switching Off the "Quick Start" - mode ("Activation" = "Off").
From now on the TV will change - if the TV was in normal Standby (0.1 Watt) before - into the 'like Quick Start' - mode (>= 23 Watt) described above. The founded changeover times are corresponding mostly with the start times of the 'Timeframes'; but at the 'Timeframes' end (fix 2 hours after start), the TV does not return into the 'normal Standby' (he remains in the 'like Quick Start' - mode with the increased electrical consumption until TV was switched on and in Standby again).
It is probable, the bug is triggered by changing and saving the 'Timeframes' only.
Bug identification: On TV the 'like "Quick Start"' - mode is not visible; Picture, Sound and Ambilight are off and the red Standby-LED lights like a 'normal Standby'.
Broad Hints of the 'like "Quick Start"' - mode (with "Quick Start", "Activation" = "Off") are: The TV starts from Standby without the Philips-Logo. Or a USB connected hard disk works continuous (without programmed records to this time). Or the running AV-Receiver switches to "TV" - input (HDMI with "TV-Speaker" = "On" (1)) or the AV-Receiver switches on (HDMI with "TV-Speaker" = "EasyLink-Autostart" (1)). Or the measured electricity consumption is - instead of ca. 0.1 Watt in 'normal Standby' - more than ca. 23 Watt.
(1): not found in User Manual.
Workaround: To solve the 'like "Quick Start"' - problem: at this point the only way is, to run a "Full installation" (Page 25, User Manual).
Firmware-Upgrades (e.g. from 150.082 to 150.083), "Factory settings", Power Off and so on, have no effect to this issue.
So remember: don't touch the "Quick Start" settings ;).
Affected devices: all from 6000 - 9000 series of 2012; Firmware: 150.082, 150.083, ...?
PS: Unfortunately Philips ignores a lot of bugs and problems in his Germans Support Forums; this bug described here since
01-25-2013, Post #55.
In case of this 'like "Quick Start" bug', I think, the TVs neither complies the A+ Energy-Label directives nor the EU directives about Standby-Power-Consumption.
