Question about Philips Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Philips model 37hfl5581v/27 that I bought used. No remote with it. All I get is a black screen with the message "channel not available" and no sound. I bought a universal remote but still can't get the tv to come on and the menu won't let me access much to make changes. Any ideas? I'm trying to use it with my satellite.

You need the original remote for that. Try "remote controls.com" and I believe they should have one. If not, let me know.

SOURCE: Universal Remote not working

With nearly all brands of universal remote control, there is usually more than one code for Philips. Keep going through the codes until you find one that works correctly.

So if you know that the 1st code doesn't work, then don't save it, and move to the next.

You may find that several codes will actually put the TV into standby, but other functions will be different.

Solution that worked for me:

Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.

Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.

Unlock Philips model # 37HFL5581V/27


Hotel TVs use unique remote codes so guests will not steal the remotes. A universal remote is unlikely to contain the code.

My philips flat screen shows no signal and #3 in right hand upper corner just happened when cat knocked over remote no sound


To which model television are you referring? It sounds like you either need to change the input method for the TV or just change to a different channel (2 or 4).

You can get an exact replacement remote here:
http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12934695994610&smodel=27ST6210%20MASTER&brand_pn=PHILIPS_27ST6210%20MASTER for the master remote. A guest remote is also available from remotes.com (search with just the model number not the manufacturer).

I hope this helps.

(You may want to check for TV menu and channel search buttons near any front AV inputs. Not all TVs have this, but our old 27" CRT (built ~1990) had this option. You could launch a full scan and then edit the channel list with those buttons. Unfortunately, the manual went with the TV to the recycling center last year.)
