Update: My set was returned this afternoon. So far, so good It's had a new screen and software update. The excessive red smearing seems to have all but vanished, and the overall picture seems much, much betterSeeing this thread again has made me realise that I forgot to post my settings as I promised Madbroon back in November Sorry.
Anyhow, my set is currently in for repair. The engineer who came to look at the red smearing issue it was displaying said that it was suffering 'excessive motion trails'. It's been away for a week now and latest update is that it needs a new panel. I've been left a loan Humax 32in LCD. It's only HD ready but it's made me realise just how bad the picture on my 37PFL7603 was. I'm hoping the repair will improve the picture, if not then I'll be pushing John Lewis for a replacement.
I have many old firm just give me an email and i will send to you, gmail best I guess.Hello, ALL!
I need your help very much!!!
first: i am sorry for my very bad english
my problem is: I have downloaded latest firmware from official site for my TV set Philips 37PFL7603D/10. I copied autorun.upg file to my 2G flash drive and insert it into the TV set. The TV set was rebooted and enter into the firmware upgrade menu. The upgrade file has successfully uploaded from flash drive to TV set and has successfully validated. Then process has been frozen for 1 minute and then has written an "Upgrade error". From this moment, when I take power off my TV set, it's back power on after 10 seconds and enter into the firmware upgrade menu again.
please help me to revert the firmware to old version or to upgrade the firmware to new one correctly.
I have firmware version on TV set is 50.7
New firmware version is 97.0
I tried upgrade to version 75.0 but result was zero
Best regards, Dev
I try to use Neotion Viaccess NP4 module to convert MPEG4 to MPEG2. I have TV set Philips 7603D/10, TV set Samsung 656A and terrestrial/satellite receiver GeneralSatellite. NP4 module was work with TV set Samsung and receiver correctly, but not work with TV set Philips. Neotion have today new NP4+ module. May be Philips will work with this new module? Or may be present modules by the other manufactorers?Is there anyone who really tested these Neotion modules? Do they work with Philips series 7 (specially 32pfl7403d)?
What we really need is CI module that can encode full HD MPEG4 signal and also give full HD output (not just converting HD to SD and give SD output).
If someone could write (or find) some review of this kind of CI module, I would be the first one who will buy it!
Thanks for any post.
I could not correct a problem by means of the specified methods.It was in this posting thread but you will have to read it, sorry.
It was a few pages back.
I've got Philips 42PFL7603D/10 and installed that update. The firmware version is 000.064.076.000 dated 2009-04-03
Followed the steps exactly as suggested in the update manual. After powering the TV off using the remote control it restarted itself and went into loops of powering up, staying on for few seconds with a blank screen then restarting again.
I could not get it back.
Then spent whole day searching and luckily managed to collect enough information to fix it.
If you have the same problem and follow the steps below you should be able to get your telly back up and running.
However, be careful as Philips support says that this can invalidate your warranty because it is not included in any official public documentation.
This software update process is different to when you are updating a working television.
You will need a USB stick. Backup all your data on it and format it to FAT32.
(To format it go to My Computer, right click on the USB drive in the list and select Format. Choose Quick format , File system: FAT32, Click START)
Now create a new folder with name UPGRADES
The upgrade application searches for upgrade file in that folder only. If you put it anywhere else it won't work.
I tried using the same upgrade file that made my TV corrupt just to test if a re-load would help. It showed completed successfully again, but result after restart was the same (On/Off/On/Off etc.)
So I downloaded an older version. I will post a link to it later. If you have an older known working version of firmware feel free to use it. Post a link to it if possible.
Unzip the archive and copy the autorun.upg file to the UPGRADES folder on the USB stick.
Here are the steps to access the upgrade application on your TV and successfully change the software to the older, but working version.
1. Unplug all attached devices and disconnect the TV from the mains.
2. Plug the USB stick into the USB port of the TV.
3. Take the remote control and keep the OK button pressed whilst plugging the TV mains cable into the socket until the upgrade application appears on the screen.(Can take 10 - 15 seconds)
4. The application will scan the USB stick and should list the autorun.upg file
5. Press the red button on your remote to start and OK if you get a message about upgrading to the same or older version of firmware.
6. The upgrade should finish successfully.
7. Unplug the USB stick and power off using the remote control.
After the restart all should be back up and running. However, you will need to configure channels etc.
Hope this will work for you as it did for me.
