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.

    Ok.  My TV used to automatically tune in channels every time we turned the TV on. We lost the remote that had the little button that had autotune on it. At some point someone selected autotune and now it is programmed to just 4 channels. I would like to find a way to autotune the TV to the new channels since we have moved. If i had the remote, I could do it by that but sonce it is lost, what can I do?

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.

I have accidently gone past the automatic tune function when 1st turning tv on . How do I manual tune?

I think you mean perform the channel scan function. Every tv manufacturer has different wording in the menu, but basically this is what you would do:
Press Menu, then go to Setup or Installation menu (wording depending upon mfg).
Select antenna or cable (wording could be air or cable)
Perform channel scan

Hope this helps as you didn't mention model.

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.
