Question about Philips Magnavox 13MT143S 13" TV

1 Answer

Televison issues Please I need help! My television only tunes and automatically selects channels. Now I have more channels on my cable but my t.v has not adapted to it. It only shows channels 1-55 and then skips to 108. I am missing out on about 30 channels because of this. I would appreciate any kind of help.

There is nothing you can do, as this is how this set works. You will need to get a new set if you want the other stations.Good Luck.

During automatic tuning, you did see the pictures to each channels tuned in; at least for a second, before going forward and the TV switches back after the tuning have ended, and no channels signal is not memorized; its main system control memory IC is faulty. Contact any service technician.

I cannot change the channel with the remote, and batteries are working...what do I need to do?

Look at the input or video select button. Change it once and attempt to change channels, if the problem persists continue to change the input selection until you can select channels.

How do i program my channels

Your Toshiba tv can be automatically tuned to all stations. The procedure follows.

Programming channels automatically

Your TV can automatically detect all active channels and store them in

its memory. After the TV has stored the channels in its memory automatically,

you can add or erase channels manually.

To add channels automatically:

1. Press MENU, then press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to display the SETUP menu.

2. Press "Up arrow"or "down arrow" until the TV/CABLE

selection is highlighted.

3. Press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to highlight either

TV or CABLE, depending on which you use.

If you use an antenna, choose TV.

If you use cable, choose CABLE.

4. Press "down arrow" button until the CH PROGRAM selection is highlighted.

5. Press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to start channel programming. The TV will automatically

cycle through all the TV or Cable channels (depending on which you

No channel 3, the tv goes from channel 2 to 4, can't use the cable box

Two options...

1. Connect the Cable Box via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) or Component cable if you have a HD cable box and select the appropriate input on the TV to view your programs. This will provide the best picture quality as well.

2. Make sure the cable box is on. Using the original TV remote type in the channel 03 and if this tunes to the channel then go to the TV menu and then go to Set up and then select add/erase and select add.

If typing 03 did not tune in channel 3 then using the TV remote select menu then go to set up and then make sure TV / Cable is set to cable then on the cable box press the channel button a couple of times and then select auto program on the tv.

Quasar TP1020DH...need to go to channel 3 for conversion to digit

Can you tune your television to channel 4? Most digital converter boxes have a slide switch on the back to select either CH3 or CH4. Select channel 4 on the slide switch and channel 4 on your TV.

Would you please let me know the type of antenna in connection you have on this TV? I have a viewer with an issue and I cannot find a users manual to view the back of the TV.

Thanks and good luck.

How do I tune in Sony Triniton tv please

The first thing is to try going in the tv's menu
It should be similar to this:
Menu>setup>channel setup

once you find something similar, run the channel setup and it should add in the channels

If that doesn't work, screw on the cable wire, unplug the tv for a good few minutes, then replug the tv and it should automatically scan

Hope this helps

Tv problems


I am assuming that you are using cable and not an aerial/antenna.

On your concern "...channels do not tune...correct channel numbers...", it is possible that when you re-tuned the TV your setting was set to AIR or STD, try to re-tune again but this time pls verify that you are in CABLE mode. If on the other hand you are using aerial/antenna, then it is the other way around.

Channel 0 would automatically be your Audio/Video (which is where your DVD/VCR is connected). If you re-tune, chances are that Channel 0 ) would be back. To be on the safe side, pls power on likewise the DVD/VCR.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
