Question about Philips 27PT5445 27" TV

1 Answer

Channels have just changed.

One day we had channels 2 thru 73, now we have 2 thru 25, and none of the 2 thru 25 are the same as they were when we had the 73 channels. We have tried to program all channels again, but have been unscuccessful. We do have Comcast Basic Cable, and our other TV (not a Philips) has not had any problems. Someone told us we have it locked up, but we have no idea how to unlock it or if that is the correct problem. Can anyone help, or can you tell me how to download a manual for our Philips 27PT5445 27" TV. Thank you.

It sounds like your tuner mode has been changed. To change this back to cable hit menu arrow down to install, then arrow down to tuner mode and change that to cable. That should take care of your problem, if not email me at evilteddybear42@yahoo.com.

We have been trying to set the channels in our old picture tube tv. it scans through the channels and once complete, you can only watch the last channel found and once you go to change channels, it...


Be sure your tv is programing with a correct signal. Air or cable channels, and that you do have a line going into the RF connector [antenna signal]. If you have a satellite or cable box your tv will only tune to channel 3. Also, if you are logged into a dvd player or vcr...you will only have one channel memory. Remove any of the external players [games,dvd,vcr etc.] And retune with auto program!

I have an older emerson tv that I can not get to pick up channels above 36. It is pluged directly into my cable outlet. When I hook up another tv it will get around 90 channels. Is there a setting I can...


I doubt that there is a setting built or designed in your tv, older tv tuning systemslike yours were designed for what was back then available as far as channel capability(cable ready sets)what ypu can do is get a cable converter and get the channels thru the box or if you have a vcr hooked up you can always select channels thru te vcr tuner if the tuning system in the vcr is newer. thanks!

I have a JVC C252 and I don't get channels 2 thru 48. Channels 49 and higher work fine. When I go to channel 2, for example, the screen goes to ''snow'' for about 2 seconds and then goes to blue.


The tuner of the TV is likely bad. Try hooking up a vcr (if available ) and changing channels with it (using video inputs on tv if available).
If you can confirm that the cable is good (by trying another tv) then the problem is with the tuner of the TV- get estimate from repair shop.

Only getting some channels to come in...


Check your latest phone bill and see if you have a basic extended package. If you dont you may have been downgraded to only get basic cable which is 2-13.

The auto program adds every channel that the television can detect.

Symphonic 20" television will only get three local channels



I suspect your tv has gone back to air and should be in cable mode; you will have to go into menu where channel programming takes place. Select cable and autoprogram; it should pick up the missing channels.

Missing channels


no they are not related. ur tv seems to have a defective tuner(inspect also for possible cold solder inside the tuner). remote control can be clean using a cotton swab with a little isoprophyl on it. clean the contact on the pcb.
