Question about Philips 17MD255V Combo

No TV "Select Source" Menu Option

The "TV" menu option has magically disappeared from the "Select Source" Menu when I try to scroll through using the green button on the remote. ( It also happens when I click through using the left-most button on top of the unit.) I can't view the TV anymore. The Select Source box now goes "Blank" where TV used to be, DVD, AV-1, and so on.

No TV. Can you help?

Had the same problem and found on the back of the tv on the black box that the cable hooks to there is a plug at the top of that box on the left side came loose. If you slide that box to the right you can completely remove it from the tv. Reinstall it and make sure it's plugged in tight your tv setting should come back.

Sky hd remote code needed please


Sky High Definition SkyHD uses a new design of Slim line remote control. The Default TV code pre-programmed into the RCU is now for Phillips and is (0)065. The SkyHD RCU is programmed in the usual manner using either the instructions in the Digital Installation Manual or via the Sky Customer Service option in the Interactive on-screen menu.
The SkyHD RCU can also be programmed to operate Sky+ boxes as well as SkyHD:
Press the TV button.
Press and hold SELECT and i together until the LED flashes twice.
Press the number button 1 and then press SELECT.
(Obviously you can't have a SkyHD and a Sky+ Digibox both in the same room).
Note: To re-programme the RCU for Sky HD box operation only, repeat the above process pressing the 2 button in step three.
Keep pressing HELP and waiting a few seconds until you find the correct command that activates the AV source you require then press SELECT.
The HELP button will now directly activate the chosen AV source instead of toggling through the alternative options to reach it.
There are 18 AV source commands to be tried before the RCU blinks 3 times to indicate it is out of options.
The Sky Guide buttons (SKY, tv guide, box office, services & interactive) can now be directed to use the same AV source as the newly programmed HELP button.
Press SELECT and GREEN until LED flashes twice.
Press HELP then SELECT and the LED will flash Twice.
The Sky Guide buttons will now instruct the TV to switch to the desired AV source and the RCU will be in Sky Mode.
Discussion here: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=944054
You can also use a Sky+ remote to control a SkyHD digibox.

How do I retune DMTech TV Freeview with DVD video please?


Please fallow bellows instruction to retune your TV.
Could you please follow that EEPROM RESET INSTRUCTION OR FIRST TME INSTALLATION.
Also please don’t forget that MENU BUTTON from your remote, it’s not the one in the middle of remote.
There are the other MENU BUTTON in left down bottom side.
Cannot access Digital TV and am asked for a Lock code Key?
If you cannot access the Digital TV option then conduct an EEPROM RESET as mentioned above. If you are prompted to enter a lock code key enter three / four zeros.
Alternatively when prompted to enter the lock code key conduct a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION also mentioned above.
There are two options available. The first option is to conduct a general reset that will reset all user preferences. The second option would be to conduct an EEPROM RESET. An EEPROM RESET would reset all the internal hardware.

Instructions - Please refer to your DMTECH remote control and user manual provided
1. Turn the Television ON ? Button on front of Television / Power button on remote control.
2. Make sure that you are on Analogue television by pressing the TV/DVB-T button until you see PR and the channel number selected in the top right corner of the screen, e.g. PR 1.
3. You must then Press the button labelled Display until a window titled INFORMATION is displayed on the screen.
4. Only when the window titled Information is present can you continue by pressing the digit (1) twice and then pressing the button titled LINE. If you make a mistake then press Display again to remove the window titled INFORMATION and repeat the process. (Display - 1 1 - Line)
5. Once you have successfully completed step four you will notice that a menu appears on the left of the screen. You can then select which option you want, either RESET or an EEPROM RESET using the arrow keys. To execute an instruction please use the RIGHT ARROW KEY and not the ENTER button.
Make sure you have properly conducted a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION and an AUTOMATIC SEARCH. If having done this you can try conducting a manual search in an attempt to force / lock the channel.
This will erase the DVBT tuner memory and reset the interface card. This may resolve poor channel reception, the inability to store channels or even receive certain channels.

Instructions - Please refer to your DMTECH remote control and user manual provided
1. Turn the Television ON and select digital television by pressing the button labelled TV / DVB-T located under the power button on the remote control.
2. On the remote control locate and press the button labelled Menu, found at the extreme bottom left of the remote control.
3. A Menu should now appear displaying options. Scroll down and select the option labelled SETTINGS using the ARROW KEYS and the enter key located in the middle of the remote control. On the next menu you must select INSTALLATION to move on to the next menu.
4. On this last menu scroll down to the last option labelled FIRST TIME INSTALLATION and select it pressing the enter key. You will then be prompted to delete all channels, using the left arrow key to select yes and press enter to execute. The television will reset and prompt you to commence an AUTO SEARCH. Follow these instructions to tune in channels.picture
Digital Television requires much more from existing aerial systems. Having more than one digital TV may reduce signal quality and strength depending on how the aerial system is set up. It is therefore recommended that if you decide to use more than one digital television you use a booster and or at least make sure you are using a digital ready aerial. Using an existing Aerial that is split may reduce signal strength depending on how many times it is split. Please see the diagram below. The best solution when using an existing aerial is to purchase a booster device. Aerial Splitting - Why a booster is recommended. A booster is used to apply a small current that boosts the existing signal. A booster can be purchased from all main TV/HI-FI - consumer electronic product retailers.

I can't find out how to switch the TV from cable to antena. Where is the switch?


If you have the original remote, it is the "source" button.
If not there, select menu and go to the source option and select "antenna", then press menu again to save & exit.

If no remote, the on the TV, press thge menu button and go to the source submenu and select "antenna".
At this point, you may want to do an automatic channel scan before you exit the screen via the menu button.

Hope this helps!

When I try to set our TV to locate digital channels, the menu skips the channel selection when I scroll through options of picture, audio, channel, lock, setup. All the options are available.


It sounds like your TV is on a different input. If you watch your cable from an external cable box, and this box is plugged into your TV using wires that are yellow, red, and white, or red, blue, green, red and white, you're currently watching TV on a different input than the one used for the antenna. Channels in a TV are controlled by the tuner. The tuner is the silver, threaded, post on the back of a TV, DVR, converter box, or VCR, that you plug an antenna or cable wire to. The tuner contols channels while the other inputs on your TV carry a direct signal like a computer to a monitor. So when you use something other than coaxial cable to connect cable to your TV, you can't access the channel menu while on that input. To access that menu, change the TV's input or source to TV or stop when you see a channel number on the screen. You have to be on the TV or tuner input in order to access the channel menu. If you're on any other input such as, S-Video, AV1, AV2, component (Yp Br Cr), HDMI, etc. you will not be able to do a channel scan. You have to be on the right input or source.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Black box in middle of screen


Note that the large black box goes away when pushing buttons on the tv (ex: the black box will disappear to show the volume setting when changing the volume on the tv but it will cover the picture and the menu display of the dtv box).

This is caused by the closed caption setting of the television set NOT the captioning of the converter box. To fix this you must open your television's menu, find the ccd/closed caption option, and turn it off. This is a frustrating problem as when most people are told to shut off the captioning they try to do so at the box.

Normal dtv box captioning will appear as a small text box at the bottom of the screen as you would expect - not as a giant black rectangle that covers most of the screen. If you do want to shut this off too you will find that you can't do it through the usual menu options (the menu will only allow changes to font, color etc.) - there should be a ccd button on the remote that when pushed will scroll through ccd-1, ccd-2,... off.

Line in is stuck on my samsung combo tv


If you cant get the TV off Line In, use the remote or channel up, it should go to ch2. If not, unplug TV for 30 minutes and try again. You may have to have an antenna or source that is active on another source to be able to change off L1. Sony TV's have a menu option that allows you to activate or deactivate other inputs so maybe L1 is the only input that is active.
