Philips 48PFS8109/12 issue


Novice Member
Hey all,

I hope someone can assist me here. I've got Philips 48PFS8109/12, last year or so I upgraded the firmware on the TV. Since then the TV won't turn on.

I've tried using the joystick at the back and it's not turning on the TV, the remote control is not working either.

The light at the front where it says Philips light's up when plugged in to power supply and Optical light at the back of TV is on as well but no other lights are visible, so I'm sure the power supply is all good.

Is there anyway to downgrade the firmware on TV without actually turning on the TV? The screen stays black the whole time and doesn't even show the philips logo.

I hope someone can assist me further here. Thanks a lot for any responses and suggestions
