Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

I am looking to replace my TV with a Flat Screen LCD. This will be used in France in conjunction with a Skybox to receive Free to air transmissions. I believe the system used by the skybox is PAL. Are the Philips sets compatible with both PAL and SECAM (the French system) if purchased in the UK? Will the presence of a free to air tuner (UK) present any problems if used either with the Skybox or French free to air?

Edtwit, In my honest opinion, Philips does more than a campble job of adjusting to skybox's requirements. I would also suggest a adaptor if you find out that you need one of those too.
Overall it should be straight plug and play.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

I have just acquired a new lg tv as a free gift from sky. My problem is u can't tune it in either auto or manually. I don't have a aerial just hdmi skybox

You will not be able to tune in TV stations unless you first have a TV antenna installed. Once connected to a working antenna the set should find stations easily enough ?

But you do not need to tune anything in to use it with your skybox -simply connect the skybox to the TV using an HDMI cable (available anywhere that TV's are sold) noting the number of the HDMI socket that you plug in into on the TV. Then, using the TV's remote, set the TV to input signal from that input (HDMI 1 for example) and you should be fine?

JVC LT42E488 Color Issue

If you have a flat screen LCD TV then there is NO color tube. Somebody is blowing smoke. Don't deal with him. The main board in conjunction with the screen controller board are the places to look.

Of course you first tried replacing batteries in the remote? If so, take the remote to a TV repair shop and have them test that it's sending a signal. If it is working you'll have to open the unit and hook an o-scope (a good sensitive voltmeter may also be sufficient) to the IR receiver and see if you're receiving the signal. If that works there should be a signal line to send the command to the micro. This is usually the same line the keypad uses. Test individual components according to your results or simply repace the IR board if you're missing that signal. If you don't want to test anything you can just try replacing that board anyway. Good luck.

How can I connect an ATL850 8.5 in. LCD TV to a cable box?

You have a ATSC Digital tuner in your set which accepts over the AIR digital transmission. Your set does not have the ATSC QAM tuner to receive digital cable transmission. Those size sets are usually designed for outdoor use with an antenna and for camping ect.....Outside of that, go ahead and connect it and see what happens...Do auto program.
