Getting into the menu

I picked up a nice 26 inch. Philips. The person got it from a sale, from a motel. The sound does not go all the way up and I can not get into the menu, with a after market remote. Would like to be able to turn up the TV more than what it does...
Can you help. thank you, Dave at

Got it now tried it on my own 28PW6615. With the remote pointing at the TV there are five coloured buttons on the top row. Immediately below these buttons are three buttons. The button on the left has what looks like a clock on it. The button on the right looks like a vertical double headed arrow with a horizontal line between them. If you press the left button together with the right button you will go to the "Installation" menu from where you can RF tune your TV.

SOURCE: My Philips TV will not turn on

More than likely it's activating the protection circuitry. Most of the time televisions won't give you a sign of trouble until something actually breaks. One day they work and the next they might not. There could be a problem in the power supply or the scan section which are both internal that would inhibit operation to prevent your set from overheating and causing a problem external to the TV like a fire. If your set is over 10 years old, replace it. If it's quite new but out of warranty then get an estimate at a reliable electronics repair store.

I have a Philips model # PL7125 TV that I do not no how to set the channels up on in the pass it was used in a Motel and I want to change it to cable, Can you help?

Many hotel TVs have been modified to disable these functions. If you've got the original remote, you should be able to change it, if the TV hasn't been modified.

I have a old 26 inch tv and its blocked can you give the code for it please


Philips sets use a four digit code to control the V-chip. The override code for Phips Tv is ( 0711 ), although the set may say "Incorrect Code" for the first time to TRIK you. If "Incorrect Code" is displayed simply enter 0711 again. To use it Hit the Menu key to get to the menus, go Up and Down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right" arrow" key on the remote control hanset. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect. Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK Menu go to "BLOCK", and push the "Right" arrow key. Go to "BLOCKING OPTIONS' and press the "Right arrow" key. Go to "MASTER DISABLE" and press the "Right arrow" key, so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The V-chip is now reset.

I have a philips tv that i bought from a motel cant get all the channels and cant get to menu on the tv

These hotel sets have a pretty complicated setup menu. You will have to get a "master remote". The hotel has the "master remote". They really should not be selling these sets without setting them up for a non comercial application. Try and see if they list a Master remote or a service remote. I would check myself but you didn't post a model number. You have got to have the model # for encompass.

Is the Remote you are using an original factory supplied one from Philips?
If NI, then get one. You could ask the local Philips / Magnavox dealership, tho I have my doubts, from the age of the TV. If the dealership has one, yopu could borrow it for amn hour or so. Then use it to go to Menu>SETUP> DEMO or MENU>DEMO>DISABLE and disable the Demo function.
Otherwise, as you said, Out Front of the House on Garbage Pick UP day.

Lost remote

Buy an original remote or get a new DVD player. I would never suggest to my worst enemy the purchase of anything from Philips. The lack of support which you are experiencing is deliberate. Don't reward them with another sale.
