Question about Philips FR975 Receiver

1 Answer

The menu button on my remote doesn't work

Whenever I press the menu button on my remote, it does nothing. All of the other buttons respond to their functions. The weird thing is that it did work before. After a friend diddled wit for a bit it stopped working.

I've tried troubleshooting and looking through the manual, but I still got nothing. The receiver that the remote came with is a Philips FR 975. The Remote is a Philips Home Cinema Control Multibrand/ Universal.

Thanks in advance.

    Still does not work.

  • Nicasaurus Oct 13, 2008

    Just tried replacing the batteries, but it still didn't work. Then I realized something that I didn't try yet that was in the manual - simply resetting the remote to factory default settings. It works now.

    Thanks for the help, though.

    have you tried to press harder on the button to see if it is now getting a bad connection?

Try replacing batteries. If that doesnt work try aiming directly at Receiver's sensor. If all the other functions work except the menu see if you can access menu directly from the unit itself. If it works then you might need to replace the remote

The waves mean that the remote is vibrate mode. Try reprogramming the remote. Open the door, turn ignition on, press and release the valet button once then, press and hold the valet button. press the lock button on the remote.

Menu button stopped responding


If only one button does not work at all or all do not work the unit may have a lock out feature that would be explained in the owners manual.

The remote just says set 2 and does nothing


Does the TV screen say Set 2 or the display area on the DVD recorder? The original remote for the DMR-ES35VS doesn't have a screen. (If you are using a universal remote, I'm not sure how to reset the unit.)

The Set 2 indicates that the unit was set to listen to a remote on the second wavelength available on these remotes. Your remote needs to be set to the same wavelength. Press and hold Enter and then press and hold 2 (for about 2 seconds) on the remote to set it to this option. Press Return to move back through the menu or exit the screen. (Panasonic provided this feature for those with several devices so that each remote wouldn't control a nearby device at that frequency.) To get the recorder to respond to the remote, they must be set to the same range. To check, press the Functions button. Under Other Functions > Setup > Remote Control Code, you can adjust the wavelength that the receiver is looking for. (Use the up/down arrows to select a sub-menu and the Enter key to enter the sub-menu. Use the left/right arrows to select options in the secondary menu.) If the unit doesn't respond, try a different wavelength. (Press and hold Enter and then press 1 or 3. There are only three possible options for the remote/receiver.)

For a screen capture of this, see page 19 of the manual; it is available from Panasonic here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES35V.pdf . An original remote is available from Remotes.com: http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=DMR-ES35VS&uuid=13262363222670 . It probably comes pre-programmed for Remote Code 1.

I hope this helps.

Remote doesn't work even with new batteries


make sure the remote batteries are in the correct + and - way. It could also be that the remote is broken. If nothing comes on when you press the power button and the tv doesn't respond, then the remote is broken and you should buy another one.

My tv won't play my DVD player. I don't have the original remote, but it is programed to a universal remote. Whenever I press the "TV/VCR" button all kinds of numbers pop up on the screen and the tv...


Your TV is responding as if the Game button was pressed on the original remote. The additional stuff on the screen is to let you set the best brightness and other settings for video gaming. These screens should disappear on their own in 10 seconds if no buttons are pressed on the remote. See the manual http://www.symphonic.us/support/manuals.aspx and fill in the model number. If the remote were still controlling the TV, the CH up and down buttons would let you choose the Picture settings to change and volume up and down buttons would change the setting.

The TV/VCR button on the universal remote may be swapping the remote to control the VCR only. (Thus losing the ability to control the TV.) (What does the manual say about the button for the universal remote?) You may want to consider a different universal remote - programmable or http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=ST419E&uuid=12844254442790 which has an exact substitute.

Check your cables for the sound issue (try new ones) and make sure that they are fully seated in the jacks.

I hope this helps.

Remote control not working


have you program first the remote control, to work on your TV..??

Heres a few instructions how to programmed your remote..

  1. Test your remote control. To find out whether your remote control can operate the component without programming, turn on the component such as a VCR and press the corresponding MODE button (VCR) on the remote control, while illuminating on the selected component. Test the POWER button to see if the component responds properly. If not, the remote requires programming to operate the device.
  2. Turn on the component to be programmed, then press the corresponding MODE button on the remote control.
  3. Press the MENU and MUTE buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds, the button selected component lights on the remote control. If you don't press any button for 20 seconds, the button selected component will turn off on the remote control. At a moment, you have to repeat from step 2.
  4. Enter a code number using the number buttons on the remote. When pressing the button, the light is blinked at a time. Programming code numbers for the corresponding component can be found on the following pages. Again, if the code is correct, the device will turn off.
  5. Press the MENU button to store the code. After blinking twice, this code is stored.
  6. Test the remote control functions to see if the component responds properly. If not, repeat from step 2.
Try 001 as the PCode.

Thanks..

Menu wont work, continuos channel search


Usually, this means that something has spilled into the front of the set and has contaminated the pushbuttons. If one of the channel pushbuttons has fluid in it, the set will just sit there searching for channels and will not respond to any other commands. The computer thinks you are pushing the channel button and responds accordingly. When you push another button the computer does nothing because it thinks that you are pressing 2 buttons at the same time. The board should be cleaned and any contaminated pushbuttons replaced by a qualified tech.

Buttons dont respond correctly


Sounds like one or more of the keypad buttons are sticking - That would also cause the remote control to stop functioning.When you saw "P:0 V:0" you somehow managed to put the tv into the service menu. Pull the keyboard away from the plastic buttons and make sure nothing is in the way.
