Question about Philips 55PP9401 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Using Intellisense without remote

Say your post on FixYa:

You can access the Intellisense with any universal remote that has a settings button.

TV > Settings > Video > Scroll down to find Intellisense.

Wouldn't this be the same as using the menu button on the front of the set to access setup? After I select Intellisense it brings up a message on the screen saying to "press the Intellisense button on the remote". Do you know of some other way to activate the function without the remote?

Thanks,
Barry

    I have the same problem. The original remote led has died. I am using a Philips universal remote. Is there a button that is programmed as the Intellisense?

We no longer have the remote for model 55pp9401 and we have a convergence problem what can we do


Here's the Philips support URL for your TV:
www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=55PP9401&slg=en&scy=US

PDF download of your Owners' manual:
http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/5/55pp9401/55pp9401_dfu_aen.pdf

Here's what Philips FAQ says about your convergence procedure:
Question How do I adjust convergence (align colors)? Answer Note: For best results, the Projection TV needs to be turned on for 15 minutes or longer before adjusting the picture tubes (convergence).

Press the INTELLISENSE button on the remote (under the flap). During the convergence process DO NOT press the INTELLISENSE button again and DO NOT move the Projection TV.

So, I think you're going to need to order a replacement remote.
search "replacement remote" at http://www.philips.com

Couple of questions:  I have a Rear Screen Hitachi 50 something TV that I got from my late uncle, and want to find out the following: How can I tell which model I own? I assume the model number is...


A universal remote will allow you to access all the necessary functions, and depending on the remote that you plan on using, a lot of the time you can use the more advanced functions as well.
If you have the remote working, you can access the model number through the menu settings as well. Get to the generic menu, go to the very bottom of the list where you will see hardware settings or just settings, from there you will see an option that says either hardware information, or information or even just one that says about. If you click on that you can generally find the model number and serial number of the TV.
If you're using a generic "less expensive" universal remote the code for your TV will depend on the exact model number. And you'll have to crawl in behind the TV to get that information then, sometimes you can access the menu from the buttons along the front/side of the TV but not always (impossible to know for sure without knowing the model number of your TV). Sometimes you can fake the remote settings if you punch in the code for any Hitachi TV, guess at how old the TV is and find a number in a code that is about the same size as the TV.

Mitsubisu projectin tv model # 4561 I have a huge black box covering screen . I puched test button on tv and this appeared. Do not have original remote. Have RCA universal remote . Need your help on how...


On the front of the set there should be a video button. Press that until you see the CC Closed Caption and turn it off, I suspect that it is on text. You can use the front panel buttons to change the settings.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Intellisense button


If the model number on the set is 55PP9401/55 you have an interesting set----this model says Philips but was made by Hitachi---they made them for Philips for one year while Philips was gearing up to produce their own sets---very good set and is better than the Philips sets that came after it.
It uses (if it is this model) two STK-392-110 CONVERGENCE IC's----both need to be replaced and the set adjusted---no need for an original remote---with the set engaged in the convergence adjustment mode( there is a micro switch on the front of the main circuit board) A HITACHI REMOTE CAN THEN BE USED TO ADJUST THE CONVERGENCE. Hope this was helpful.

Lost the original remote for my sylvania tv and the closed caption is on. how do i get this off my screen without remote?


If there is no on screen menu option, accessible from the console, that you can switch off, the answer to your
question is "You can't".....without obtaining a universal remote that you will install using the codes for the
function of your particular set, and since you have a rear projection model (61 inches, wow!!) every universal
remote normally used for the purpose of home entertainment theater setups will have the code for your set.

Enjoy!!

Philips universal remote codes


For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
