First, test to make sure the Philips remote is working by trying to play a dvd. If the remote control is working, then either A) your TV is set to the wrong channel, or B) you have not selected the correct source on the Philips remote.

Look at how the cables run from the back of the Philips to the TV. In the back of your TV, the slot that the cables are plugged in to is usually labelled "AV1, "AV2, "Video 1", "Input 1" or something like that. Change the television to the appropriate input/source channel.

Press the Source button on the Philips remote and make sure it says E1 or whatever the appropriate source is.

Then try changing channels using the Philips remote.

This does not exhaust every possibility, but you must check the above first to see if anything else might be wrong. If the above does not work, then I would double-check to make sure the cable/satellite box is connected to the Philips correctly.

You will certainly need an original remote. Try the Philips Parts Store.com or see VanceBaldwins.com to find one! Hope this will help.

Cooling fan on Philips DVDR3576 runs on when the unit off?


I noticed the same thing on mine. I determined that the unit turns on the fan AND Hard Drive during the period of 11:59 to 12:00 BOTH AM and PM and continues to run until the unit is cycled on and off either with remote or by a program. I used a stethoscope to listen to the Hard Drive humming inside; when the unit is cycled off I could hear the Hard Drive shut down, and a second or 2 later, the fan shuts off. I had purchased several other new units thinking I would return the "defective" one. Testing them, (by setting the clock to 11:57 and wait) both other 2 units did the exact same thing. So I assume that's a software "oops" on probably all units.
My "solution" is to set up "dummy programs" to record for 1 minute after those time periods: like 12:03 to 12:04 AM and PM on a daily schedule, and I pick a channel I usually don't record. The 00:01:00 recording time and "special" channel number make it easy to quickly identify the unwanted "dummy programs" and I use the "multiple title delete" feature to periodically delete them.
So I accumulate 2 titles per day, but I prefer that to having the hard drive run all the time.
Incidentally, I talked to a sevice rep at Philips, and the only thing they could offer is to set up a return for refund. The Philips 3576H is, in my opinion, a fantastic unit and I think the little glitch is well worth the benefits of the features it provides. How did I ever live without it???
