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.

    Thanks.

    Yes, the TV definitey turns on and off manually. Could it be that there is dust on this command processor IC?

    It's weird that the channels can change and the volume can be controlled, but the darn thing just won't turn on or off...

    Ok...I am not going to take this in. Too heavy and too much time and probably more money than it's worth.

    I guess I'm gonna have to haul my cookies off the sofa to turn her on and off. Bummer.

    Thanks anyway

    Hi I have a sanyo that works fine turning it on/off manually but will not turn on with a remote. I have had it stored for a while in a closet and set it up the other day to use with Directv but the remote will not work with it. The code took on the remote but still will not work on the tv. Any suggestions?

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.

    Caused by dust, not likely. This type of problem has to be analyzed because the set can be turned off via the on off button. The TV shop would have to test the incoming signal into the IR photodetector then see if the signal is getting to the command processor via the signal bus (connecting wires on the circuit board). This means that you would not be able to work on this problem, because it is actually not a user serviceble problem.

URC20 D1F codes for philips tv


Not sure which Philips TV model you have. But you can use the remote to scan the code by itself.

Try these steps::

1. Manually turn on your TV. Hold down the "Code Search" button on your remote, then press and release the device button you want to set up until it flashes.
2. Push the power button repeatedly until the TV turns off, then hit "Enter."
3. Press any other button while the TV is on to see if it responds. If it does, you don't need to do any other programming. If it doesn't, repeat steps

Philips 19PS50S122 TV does not respond to remote control


Hello,
Please check your batteries in the tv remote as they appear to be weak or dead. You will need to find the cable remote's paper guide in order to properly program the cable remote so it can change channels, volume, and power functions on the tv set.
Good Luck!

Hi there,

Well your Philips universal remote control comes with a list of codes for devices by brand name.
Find the first code for the brand name and type of device you wish to program. Turn all of your devices off, and then manually turn on the device you want to program.
Press the Setup button on your the universal remote and continue to hold it down until the indicator light stops flashing and remains solid. Release the Setup button. Press the Mode button for the type of device you want to program on your Philips universal remote, such as the TV.Release it immediately and make sure the indicator light is illuminated. Enter the first possible four-digit code on the universal remote, and then press another button on the remote to see if the device is now programmed, such as the volume control or power button. If the device responds, you have successfully programmed your Philips universal remote. If not, turn the device off and back on and follow the steps again using the next code on the list. Repeat until the device successfully responds.

If your TV code is not listed on the manual then you can use the Remote Using Code Search Option -
Your Philips universal remote has a built-in code search feature that will find the correct code for your device. This process may take longer than using direct code entry, but can be helpful if you do not have access to the code list or if the brand for your device is not listed.

Make sure all of your devices are turned off, and then manually turn on the first device. Press the Code Search button and hold it down until the red indicator light stays illuminated. Press the Mode button for the type of device you want to program on your Philips universal remote, such as the TV button.  Release it immediately and make sure the indicator light is illuminated. Press either the Channel button until the device responds. You may have to press the button up to 300 times. Each time you press the button, the Philips universal remote tries a new code. When the code works, press the Mute button on the Philips universal remote and the code will be stored.

I thing you wrongly do the second option that creates the problem. No issue, if your tv code not listed on the manuals then you can go with the second (code search) solution. Please post comments for further help or information.........

Good Luck!!

Thanks
