Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

2 Answers

We bought a magnavox tv from a hotel and some channels are blocked and we can't get all of our cable channels. Is there a way to reprogram the tv? It is a 25' and it's about 10 years old and in good shape. The model is TC7225C101 . Thanks, Debbie

The eprom that holds the stored codes needs to be wiped clean or re-set...unfortunately, unless the original remote is available to get into the menu...it will have to be done manually by a technician. the set needs to be opened, the eprom located, the proper pin-outs located and then proceed with resetting. if the eprom is an older type, then the codes were usually held there by a back up battery or super cap...in which case, you just need to remove the battery or super cap for a couple minutes.

I bought a Panasonic 42" Plasma th-42pwd8 from a hotel. The monitor had the menu, and channel buttons disabled through "Hotel mode". It did not come with a remote. How do I unlock the buttons?


If you cannot find the remote control at all, you will need to reprogram the EPROM IC. This IC is inside the tv, with numbers starting or in between 24c02.... Please contact any qualified tehnican for further help. The IC i mentioned is programmed and at present it is locked through Hotel Mode. Also try to look RESET switch, to reset the whole unit. Thanks

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!

Hi, I just bought an older model Philips Magnavox from a hotel(Model Number: TL7127C107 Chassis Number: 27B700-7562). The T.V. itself works fine but I can't access all my channels. I did a little research...


sorry, it wont go away, bet ya got it cheap huh(nothing intended by cheap) but the tv hotel mode is telling you that its a special tuner made for just hotels, the only way to get around this is if you can replace the hotel type tuner on the main-board with a normal type tuner, it'll cost more than you paid though.good luck,a friend of mine bought 12 of then at $25 each, boy he thought what a deal, now he's really crying and they didn't tell him,and they won't refund his money

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR


using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.

TV channels


If cable is hooked through cable box with a coaxial cable, then turn tv to ch 3 or ch 4 as appropriate.

If cable is hooked through any other type of cord (red/green/blue or red/white/yellow) use the AV+ or Source button to change your source to Av1, AV2, HDMI, or however you have the cable box hooked to TV (I am assuming your TV is a Philips).

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.
