Question about Philips 50P8341 50" Rear Projection Television
The remote doesn't work at all. I have also tried programing universal remotes and the Tv doesn't pick them up. When I try and change the channels on the buttons on the tv it changes the inputs and not the channels. What can I do to fix it? Thanks
Chances are that the infra-red receiver in the set has gone bad, since you have tried two different remotes. Having said that, it is always possible that the universal remote doesn't have the correct code in it to operate the set. You can always take the original remote to a shop and have them see if it is puting out infra-red. Your local Radio Shack might even have an I.R. sensor to try it on.
If the I.R. receiver is bad I can't give you an easy fix. Though not difficult to replace, the original part (932215244687) has been discontinued. Your local repair shop probably has one laying around that would work, but may not be eager to sell it to a do-it-yourselfer.
Hope this helps,
