Philips model# 27PT31, only turns on manually, no remote

Hi there. My TV doesn't respond to the remote control for turning it on and off. Volume controls work as do channel controls. I just purchased a new universal remote and cannot set it up because when it finds the right code, it's supposed to turn off, but it can't...does that make any sense? Please help. Thank you.

Hello laurenbro, Actually it does make sense if the command processor in the TV set is bad. a way to test this would be to see if the TV will manually turn off and on. If it can, than the problem may be in the command processor IC, also called the input data IC. You will have to take this set to a TV repair shop, and have the look at that section.

This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.

We cannot increase or decrease the sound. There does not appear to be a volume control on the set and it does not respond to the remote. The remote is working in all other respects.

Make sure the speakers are turned on in the audio menu. Usually when the speakers are turned off the set goes into a fixed sound level at the audio output jacks. These jacks are used for external amplifiers, etc. Hope this helps. Thanks

Controls not working on Philips 28" TV

We had this problem with a 28PW6515. The control would work for 30 seconds after switching on, then nothing. It was diagnosed as the "glue chip" which handles all the control functions. About £200 to fix it as it's a surface mount chip.
