Question about Philips TP2784C TV

2 Answers

Philips Magnavox TP2784C TV always powers up to Channel 9

Even after "deleting" and "blocking" channel 9 with original remote and correct access codes, it powers up to Channel 9.

Now in the Digital Age all TV's must be tuned to Channel 3 in my area, and then switched via Digital Converter to desired channel.

I am pondering finding another TV! Help, and thank you in advance if you can help.

    its possible that its the remote sending the channle nine signal or the IR sensor on the tv or the eeprom chip needs resettting or replaced or a component in the circuit

  • Litza60 May 19, 2009

    TV still misbehaving. Remote suggestion by Guest interesting, but removing batteries from it didn't stop the TV from powering up at CH 9.



    I would like to reset the eeprom chip memory, but can find no info as to actions required.



    Anybody else?

  • Litza60 May 21, 2009

    Thanks for that suggestion Tom2Tom2. Any idea if that chip is a plug in model, or is it soldered in? Not so sure I want to use my $5 soldering weapon to solder a TV that I hope still works afterwards!

Your TV will reset to whatever channel you last had it on when you were using the basic- antenna or non-digital cable- line. Switch to that line, set the channel that you wish your television to open to, and it ought to open there each and every time.

If this does not work, occasionally, the set will reset to the station used in the auto segment of the time setting program. To see if it will reset, switch to the time setting program, choose the "auto" optoion, then, when it asks for the station where it can find current time, choose the channel you would like to set to open on each time. Let the time program run through its completion. Unless the station you choose just happens to be one that transmits the current time, allow the program to complete until it reaches it fail point. Go back to your usual viewing channel, turn the set off, then on, and see if it reset.

    I did some further investigating and it is possible that the station preset for your timer function could also be causing your problem with the TV always opening to channel 9. Try going into the Timer Activating function in the FEATURES section. Display the TIMER controls, cursor right and down to highlight the CHANNEL control. Cursor right again to highlight the channel indicator area. Press the NUMBER buttons to enter the station that you would like your TV to open to each time, then press the STATUS/EXIT button to close the menu. Hopefully, if none of the previous attempts worked, this will resolve your problem.

How to reset access code on magnavox 20ms233s


Hi. It's really necessary to have the original remote. All so called replacment do not have the "menu" button. In Philips TV's access code is not rquired. In your case, some channels are "whiped" and cannot be recalled. If you can go into setup-menu, things can be rearranged. There are numerous web-shops where you can buy an orignal remote. I recently bought an original remote for my DVD player. This however was at an on-line shop in Belgium. Just surch for Pilips on line shops in your country. Good luck.

I lost the booklet with all the codes for my remote and i need the code to work my tv my tv is a symphonic


I suggest you try these steps..

1.Turn the television set on by pressing the "Power" button on the set.

2. Find the "Code Search" button on the Philips Magnavox remote. This button will be labeled or will be a different color than the other buttons on the remote (depending on which Philips Magnavox remote you own)

3. Hold the "Code Search" button down for about ten straight seconds. The light on the Philips Magnavox remote should then stay on.

4. Starting pressing either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the Philips Magnavox remote. Continue pressing the same button until the television responds to the remote. It could take a few minutes for the channel to change so you'll need to have patience when searching for the remote code in this manner.

5. Press the power button on the Philips Magnavox remote once the channel has changes. If the device shuts off, press the power button again to turn the TV back on. If the TV turns on, the remote has been programmed correctly. Repeat the entire process if your remote is not programmed.

I hope this helps...

I don't have my original remote. I want to watch a dvd but the tv is in "S"mode?


Unfortunately, that function is simply too advanced to access any other way but through an appropriate remote control unit. As this is such a highly sought TV by audiophiles who want an excellent listening experience for their older audio-DVDs, this remote control is readily available. One can buy a replacement, either a used original remote (model RCU81B) for between $8- $40 on eBay and other such sites, or brand new, for between $30- $35 through several different remote replacement companies. Simply search the words "Philips Magnavox RCU81B" to locate such sellers. You also have the choice of buying a clone- brand new, of course- for around $20. Most sellers of remotes on sites like eBay do warrant their used products, so there is no real reason not to go that route.

I just ran a quick check of an eBay seller with a $7.99 original remote, and not only does it look great, but it comes with a 100% guarantee. To get full functionality of your TV back, especially for one that offers as options as the TP2784C, that is a very small amount of money to pay. The seller even offers a "Best Offer" option, so who knows, you might try offering him $5 and see if he is willing to go for it!

No remote, channels locked on smart tv


On this set, the volume buttons are the same as the menu button on your remote. The two channel buttons work the same as the scrolling arrows on your remote. It will take some practice, but to turn on the menu, press both volume buttons at once. Then practice using the volume controls to scroll. Once you have the hang of it, you can simply use these four buttons the same way you would have used your remote. If you cannot figure it out on your own, come back here, let me know, and I will sit down and map it out completely for you.

Hope this helps in some small way!

Magnavox with pic tube tv skips over channel 3..goes from 2 to 4


You are right about the auto-programming, but Magnavox no longer has the original remote.

For my answer to be right, you must have posted this question to the EXACT CORRECT model # of your Magnavox TV - 27ms343s:

Press TV on your Verizon remote, and then press "0" and "3"

If that fails:
Press MENU to see the TV’s on-screen
menu. In the menu, use VOL.+/_ and
CH.+/_ to make adjustments or selections.
You can press MENU on either the
remote control or the front of the TV to
access or remove the menu.
