Picture broken after using a philips universal remote

The picture in my tv went crazy, almost as if it isn't expecting the north american signal from the cable, and it turned to either chinese, or some other asian language. I was able to correct the language so that it was english again, but not able to correct the picture which now looks like a trapezoid, or just not properly decoded... Can someone please help? I never knew you could mess up the tv so bad from a remote control...

How to format the picture to fit the screen with a universal remote (the one we have is not a philips remote)


Hi there. It is a common problem with replacement remotes. Some features like the one you describe will not be available in this one.
A Philips replacement remote is the solution. Best of luck.

My remote will not turn the tv on it work for about a week. I have replaced the batteries numerous times with no help


Can another remote turn on and off the TV? Do the buttons on the TV itself work (assuming a front panel lock isn't engaged)? Is this the original remote for the TV or a universal remote?

The possibilities: 1) The remote has failed. If you have a digital camera, take a picture of the IR side of the remote when someone presses the buttons. When you review the picture, you should see a bright spot in the picture. This indicates the remote is at least sending a signal. Sometimes the buttons will fail to make contact with the circuitry of the remote (due to wear). Other times the IR transmitter fails (the suspect if there is no light in the pictures from multiple button presses of the less used buttons). It's cheaper to replace the remote than it is to repair it.
2) The remote has lost the code for the TV. If you have a universal remote, try reprogramming it. (Cable or Satellite controllers count in this group).
3) The IR receiver on the TV has failed (if the buttons on the TV work) or the entire board has failed. You can get replacements for these at some sites. Try shopjimmy.com (minimally used parts) or partstore.com. You will need to open the TV and get the part number for your individual model for best results.
4) The TV won't turn on due to power supply problems.

If you need a replacement remote, a universal remote should work but the low end ones may not access all of the features of the original. Check for buttons that match features like Menu and Source (Input) if your TV doesn't have equivalent buttons on the TV itself. The remotes that are programmed via a USB connection with a computer are the easiest universal remotes to set up. If you want the original remote (or a close substitute that will perform all of the original features), first check if a parts store exists for your TV manufacturer (Samsung for example). Next try remotes.com and search for the TV model (leave out the manufacturer).

I hope this helps.

Screen is frozen on with no picture and no sound. Does not respond to either remote control or manual controls. The tv did work and then after a few minutes went frozen.


You need to move further south if it is frozen. It's cold up north :-)

If you've pulled the power from this tv (power cycled it) and it still has this problem ... frozen with no picture and no sound. How a screen can be frozen with no picture, I'm not sure. But it sounds like you are going to be on your way to the repair shop. Or to buy a new tv.

If I couldn't see and couldn't hear, how would I know you were even here?

I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter box with my TV attached to a rooftop antenna. I can turn the TV off and on with the DTX9950 remote, but I can't bring in any stations, other than the DT...


Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.
