37PFL9606H/12 Ambilight works, but the screen itself remains black
Softwareversion not available because there is only a black screen, but yesterday and the day before it was confirmed by the helpdesk that my version (when it was visible) was the latest version.
After using the TV yesterday I switched it off.
This morning I switched on the TV and there was only a black screen (there is sound and there is Ambilight (changing colors as if there is something going on on the screen ...)
Last monday I changed my first 37PFL9606 because of the same problem (after 10 days), thinking it would be a failure in this one.
Now my 2nd one has got the same problem (after 4 days).
Waiting for an answer from the helpdes how to solve this, because I like the Ambilight very much, the reason to choose Philips. But if not solved very soon I will have to say goodbye to Ambilight and switch to another brand ... too bad.
Other problem is the minijack connection, sometimes there is a signal and sometimes there is not, waiting for an answer for this problem to.
Seems to be a common problem
There exist now a number of forum messages that complain about black screens after switching on. I don't think that Ambilight has to do with that. In my case, I just switch on and off a couple of times, sometimes on the remote (standby on/off), sometimes on the power switch. Eventually a picture will appear, though it may take 2, 3 minutes. Currently, I am hoping that the next firmware (after 0.14) will fix that problem.
same here with a 46pfl8606
Yesteday I got this new 46pfl8606 tv and updated to the latest firmware. After starting (cold and standby) the screen stays black but there is sound and ambilight. The only way I can trigger my tv screen to turn back on is to connect my xbox 360 and switch source to the xbox. Then the screen is triggered to start-up.
I called support today and they updated my firmware but this didn't solve my problem. Now they will send a repair man to fix the problem. Hopefully he can help.
