User Manual
This manual contains all information you will need to initially install and operate your new TV.
Also read the help texts which are being displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Safety warnings
General
Do not insert the power plug in a wall
socket or hang the TV to the wall before all
connections are made.
•
Place or hang the TV wherever you want, but
make sure that air can circulate freely through
the ventilation slots. Leave at least 4” to 6”
free all around the TV.
• Do not place the TV on a carpet.
• Do not install the TV in a confined space such
as a book case or a similar unit.
• To prevent any unsafe situations, no naked flame
sources, such as lighted candles, should be
placed in the vicinity.
• Avoid heat, direct sunlight and exposure to rain
or water.
• The equipment shall not be exposed to dripping
or splashing.
• To prevent damaging the power (AC) cord
which could cause a fire or electric shock, do
not place the TV on the cord.
Care of the screen
Do not touch, push or rub or strike the screen
with anything hard as this may scratch, mar or
damage the screen permanently.
And please do not rub with dust clothes with
chemical treatment. Do not touch the surface
with bare hands or greasy cloth (some cosmetics
are detrimental to the screen).
Unplug the TV before cleaning the screen.
When the surface becomes dusty, please wipe
gently with absorbent cotton or other soft
materials like chamois soaks. Do not use acetone,
toluene and alcohol because they cause chemical
damage. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners.Wipe off saliva or water drops as soon
as possible.Their long time contact with the
screen causes deformations and color fading.
Caution
Installing the TV requires special skills that should
only be performed by qualified personnel.You
should not attempt to do the work yourself.
Philips bears no responsibility for improper
mounting or mounting that results in accident or
injury. Make sure that the wall mount is being
fixed securely enough so that it meets safety
standards.
Energy Star Compliance
No CableCARD installed: 1 W
CableCARD installed: 15 W
Mounting the TV on the wall
This TV provides the VESA mounting interface
(not supplied) and is VESA compatible with the 4
supplied VESA studs to be inserted in the back of
the TV.
Warning concerning stationary images on the TV screen
A characteristic of Plasma Display Panels is that displaying the same image for a long time can
cause a permanent after-image to remain on the screen.This is called phosphor burn in.
Normal use of the TV should involve the showing of pictures that contain constantly moving and
changing images that fill the screen.
Examples of stationary images (this is not an all-inclusive list, you may encounter others in your
viewing):
• TV menus;
• Black bars: when black bars appear at the left and right side of the screen, it is recommended to
change to a picture format so that the picture fills the entire screen;
• TV channel logo: present a problem if they are bright and stationary. Moving or low-contrast
graphics are less likely to cause uneven aging of the screen;
• Stock market stickers: presented at the bottom of the TV screen;
• Shopping channel logos and pricing displays: bright and shown constantly or repeatedly in the
same location on the TV screen.
Examples of still pictures also include logos, computer images, time display, teletext and images
displayed in 4:3 mode, static images or characters, etc.
Notes:
- reduce contrast and brightness when viewing
- once burn-in occurs it will never disappear completely.

Digital Cable TV
Cable CARD INTERFACE

* CableCARD™ is a trademark of
Cable Television Laboratories, Inc.
Your new TV is provided with a special slot called a
CableCARD™ which means that you do not need a separate
set top box to receive digital cable SDTV and HDTV programs.
However it is still possible to connect a set top box to your TV.
The CableCARD, which will be available from your cable system
operator, is designed only for that particular digital cable TV
system. If you need to get digital cable TV from a different
system, simple swap your old CableCARD for a new one.
Cable systems can provide a wide range of digital TV programs
and even specialized digital audio channels.
Cable TV systems can offer many local-interest channels you
won’t see off-air or from a satellite broadcast. Examples include
local school and community access channels.
CableCARD™ *
A CableCARD is a removable card distributed by cable
companies, that is inserted into the CableCARD slot at the
bottom of your television.
CableCARD allows you to tune digital and high definition
scrambled or encrypted cable channels through the cable
antenna. Consult your cable company on the availability of
CableCARD.The CableCARD is required to receive premium
digital TV channels and services (where available) through the
cable.
A CableCARD functionality includes conditional access and
copy protection. See settings menu, CableCARD applications,
p. 18.
Note: Do not insert a PCMCIA card into the CableCARD
slot.

Digital processing
- Standard = line doubling eliminates the flicker.
- Pixel Plus = for everyday viewing, Pixel Plus is the most
ideal setting, as it fully processes the image to make every
single pixel the best it can be, improving contrast, sharpness,
picture depth, and color reproduction and brilliance from
every source, including High Definition.
Standard mode is recommended only for very noisy or
poorly mastered sources or for those who find the
smoothness of Pixel Plus (which eliminates judder in the
picture) unsettling.
Clear LCD (only in 42PF9731D/9831D set)
Clear LCD results in superior sharpness of motion
reproduction, better black level, high contrast with a flickerfree, quiet image and a larger viewing angle.
Dynamic contrast

Annex 2 - Philips TV-Slideshow Format with background music
Notes:
- the latest version of this document can be found on the Philips support website
(www.philips.com/support).
Use the type number of your TV to find this documentation and other related files.
- Philips can’t be held responsible for any problems that may occur as a result of the content in this
document. Errors reported to Philips will be adapted and published on the Philips support website
as soon as possible.
Introduction
This document explains how to make a Philips slideshow file with background audio.
Be aware that the content of this document is addressing technical or software skilled users.
To start the slideshow open the slideshow file in the Multimedia browser of your TV.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Turn the TV on and insert a portable memory device.
Select Multimedia and press the cursor right.
Go to where you stored the slideshow file (.alb) on your portable memory.
Select the slideshow file and press the OK button to start the slide show.
To stop a slide show, press the ‡ button.
General Rules
- The slideshow will use plain ASCII XML syntax to allow the creation and editing of the slideshow
files using simple tools.
- All references to network content must be based on the global address of the content.
- Content on a Portable Memory (PM) doesn't have a global address; as a result content from a PM
can never be referenced from a slideshow not stored on the PM itself.
- To maintain portability, a slideshow stored on a PM should ONLY reference content on the same
PM. Referencing global addresses can result in inconsistencies if the PM is used on a nonnetworked CE device. The latter is however not forbidden, it is only a recommendation.
- It is preferable that URL’s referencing PM content are based on a relative path starting from the
directory where the slideshow is stored. This path includes the device or drive name of the PM.
An absolute path to content will also be supported.
- relative path: pictures\test1.jpg, tamper.jpg, ..\new\bird.jpg, …
- absolute path: USB1:\pictures1\foo_bar.jpg, C:\f1.jpg, \organization.jpg, …
General Format
The format and syntax below will be used to create the slideshow file (simple ascii text) with the
extension .alb (.ALB). Examples: slshow1.alb, summer_holiday_2004.ALB, test.alb, …
The following syntax should be used to create the text file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-885h9-1" ?>
<philips-slideshow version="1.0" >
<title>Title of the slideshow</title>
<audio>audio_url</audio>
<slide-duration>30</slide-duration>
<slides>
<slide>slide_1_url</slide>
<slide>slide_2_url</slide>
<slide>slide_3_url</slide>
<slide>slide_4_url</slide>
<slide>slide_5_url</slide>
<slide>slide_6_url</slide>
...
<slide>slide_N-1_url</slide>
<slide>slide_N_url</slide>
</slides>
</philips-slideshow>

the configuration of your digital camera is correct (see the
manual of your digital camera for more information).
< Some digital cameras allow you to switch off the USB
interface. Make sure that the USB interface is switched on
before connecting to the TV.
< If you have a digital camera with only internal memory (no
removable memory) you can try to copy the content
manually to a USB memory device using a personal
computer.
< Some digital cameras allow you to switch between PTP
(Picture Transfer Protocol) or “PC Link” and USB Mass
Storage. Make sure that you select USB Mass Storage or
“PC Drive” on your digital camera.
< If your camera supports different interface settings be sure
to try them one by one or contact the reseller of your
camera to find out the correct setting.

Plasma display characteristics
This Plasma display is designed to be used at altitudes up to 6562 ft above sea level (and/or local air
pressure equal or above
800 hPa). Operating this set at higher altitude (lower air pressure) is possible. However, at high
altitudes (or local air pressure equal or below 800 hPa) the picture on this display may become
unstable and picture performance can deteriorate. In addition, the plasma display may produce a
humming sound in these conditions.
These possible adverse effects relate to the altitude and are common of all plasma displays. Once the
set is brought below aprox 6562 ft (and/or local air pressure equal or above 800 hPa) its function will
most likely return to normal.
Note:Transportation at high altitudes has no negative effect on the set or picture performance.
