Philips TV not responding to remote

Pressed the format button on remote while setting up the television, the screen went blank. The TV is not responding to the remote (except for the power button) and is a model with no buttons on the TV. Is there a fix to this, possibly a way to reset the TV without using the remote?

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. Ome among its posts have details about it. Surf the site in "Mosaic" view. It will make surf easier.

If remote control is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV.

Look for a button on your Philips remote labeled Format. This button will cycle through the picture formats available for that signal. Press it until you find one you like.

Hope that helps!

Have you looked to see if the formatting was changed to something other than your TV input such as VCR/Game/DVD? Do you have satellite TV or cable? It is difficult to say which button might have caused this without knowing what you are using for a remote.If it is set to correct source for TV Try this:

Try operating the TV using the manual controls.Turn the TV off manually.
Remove the batteries from the remote/wait a few minutes then replace the batteries .
Try turning the TV on again.
Please let me know if either of these solutions works for you.

My tv won't play my DVD player. I don't have the original remote, but it is programed to a universal remote. Whenever I press the "TV/VCR" button all kinds of numbers pop up on the screen and the tv...


Your TV is responding as if the Game button was pressed on the original remote. The additional stuff on the screen is to let you set the best brightness and other settings for video gaming. These screens should disappear on their own in 10 seconds if no buttons are pressed on the remote. See the manual http://www.symphonic.us/support/manuals.aspx and fill in the model number. If the remote were still controlling the TV, the CH up and down buttons would let you choose the Picture settings to change and volume up and down buttons would change the setting.

The TV/VCR button on the universal remote may be swapping the remote to control the VCR only. (Thus losing the ability to control the TV.) (What does the manual say about the button for the universal remote?) You may want to consider a different universal remote - programmable or http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=ST419E&uuid=12844254442790 which has an exact substitute.

Check your cables for the sound issue (try new ones) and make sure that they are fully seated in the jacks.

I hope this helps.

Philips 42pfl7762D-lcd blue screen, remote control


Hi! I have the probably same problem (since today) - all I know is that it is because the TV is set to digital instead of analogue, and it won't allow me to put it back into analogue mode - when I try that, i get the cross you mentioned. The strange thing is, that there are no menus visible at all. But the volume and screen output format buttons are workijng and show on the TV. Otherwise the screen is blue. Any solutions?

Pressed 'D/A' button on remote and tv and tv has stopped working


This is the Digital/Analogue input choice. The TV has probably locked up due to a signal failure, try switching the TV off from the mains electical plug, leaving it for 30 seconds, then plug the TV back into the mains socket & try switching it back on.

'F' displaying on screen and remote not responding.


Excavated with Google from Philips website: " When a letter F appears on the right hand corner of the screen it means the television is in factory mode. To exit from factory mode, press the 'VOLUME -' and ?CHANNEL -? buttons on the TV set simultaneous for 5 seconds. " Hope this helps Michael Junge
