Question about Televison & Video
I recently bought the above referenced TV used. When I tried to go through the channels it went from channel 37 to 125 and everything in between produces a message "channel not available." I have cable with a lot of channels in between, but can not figure out how to re-program the t.v. with it's VERY remedial remote control? Is there any hope????
SOURCE: Cannot set Cable Default Channel
I believe you are getting mixed up between channels and programs. Normally program 00 is used for VHS as it has slightly different parameters for colour and brightness. If the TV has about 39 or more programs which can be programmed in from the on screen menu, try using program 20 for the video and 30 for the cable. For this to work you must do the on screen frequency scanning from channels 22 to 69 (UK) and select VCR, CATV, VHF, UHF, etc. I have used program 00 and 20 for two VHS recorders, working on channel 33 and 35 for example, but you must tune them to 33 and 35 on the `Tune' screwdriver hole by the aerial input sockets of the recorders. I expect if your cable unit plugs into your aerial socket of the TV that it has an adjustment for what channel it is on. The TV on screen menu may be different in some countries, so it would help if I knew where you are.

You and many others i have a philips 28inch and it seems that a common problem is when they try to turn on it has a surge that then sends it back to standby if this the problem then you will expert help cos the backs got to come off and some componets changed but you dont say if you are ok to do this yourself? Maybe the fuse inside the set or maybe there is a wire come loose in the plug or in the set. If you are not up to working on the internals then take to tv repair shop!!
