Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Philips commercial TV (hotel use) that I can't get to allow me to watch channels other than 2-9. I have the master remote, but can't get it to ''auto program'', it gets to about 86% complete and stops. Any Idea on how to program this TV. I have the cable line run right into the back of the TV. I have tried to remove the card in the back, didn't help. The model from the back of the TV is 42HFL5860D/27

    Thanks for your reply crikett, I already have the manual, i think the problem is related to p.26 of the manual. I think the problem lies in the inability to convert from PPV mode to STANDALONE mode. the note at the bottom says " Instruction for the decryption control 
    menu will be provided when you receive 

    the Pro:Idiom certificates. " I need help getting access to that menu.

I got a free tv from a hotel, it has no remote. Can I use a universal remote to add channels to the tv? It only goes to channel 69. Also, can I plug in a dvd player? I can't find anywhere on the tv to plug...


Often these commercial TV's are just vanilla types catering for TV alone. The43 cable channel is possibly the only other alternative that is a money maker for the motel/hotel. They try and prevent people from connecting their own DVD players to their equipment so they are the ones who make the $$.
It is possible to use a Universal remote providing it is capable of being controlled by a remote.
Philips code is 0054 , you can only try!

I have a philips tv that i bought from a motel cant get all the channels and cant get to menu on the tv


These hotel sets have a pretty complicated setup menu. You will have to get a "master remote". The hotel has the "master remote". They really should not be selling these sets without setting them up for a non comercial application. Try www.encompassparts.com and see if they list a Master remote or a service remote. I would check myself but you didn't post a model number. You have got to have the model # for encompass.

Hotel system TVs


You could have several problems. 1) if it was a commercial set was there a pay system custom board in or attatched to the set to keep movies off the set is it removed? 2) if the commercial board was removed where was the original insert? My experience is hotels don't know what they need it for and throw out the spare parts that are useful when the site upgrades tvs. 3) if the commercial mode is set then it gives priority over to the vendor board. The green philips rd2573 is the installation remote needed to reset the tv to allow residential use. Its been around for years should cost about $45 if its not out of stock. And that's only the start of your problems....what model type is it does it have a tv tuner or is it a strict monitor....I only addressed the common issues. Bottom line 1-800-philips may be able to help

How do I reset my tv to default.


They must have them made that way so hotel guests cannot change the settings. Maybe there is a reset button on the back somewhere? I don't know of TV's having these. Some dvd players and recorders have them. It could be a small hole too that you have to press the button with a paperclip.

Thats my best guesses.

Phillips PC7225 Menu


Found it!
I have a Philips universal remote. After trying half of the codes for Philips TVs, I came up with one which allowed access to the SETUP menu. It was 0621. This allowed me to run the auto channel setup, as well as fix some of the other functions. I don't know if this works with all remotes, but if you try different codes, you should get lucky. I'm sure it helps if you have a SETUP button on your remote.

Trying to get channels above 42 to 99


I had the same problem the solution is you have to get institutional remote and reset the tv from commercial mode to consumer mode and then you will have access to the full menu. go to www.phillipsitv.com to get the directions. I actually asked a Hotel could I borrow their master remote used it and took it back and my tv works fine. Hope this helps.
