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.

Re: Trying to get channels above 42 to 99
Many older sets have an upper channel limit = 42,46,54,64,etc.
If you can't dial direct ...4-3 enter, 4-4 enter,etc...........
If you CAN dial direct, then you would need a service remote
to program.............becuz it's a hotel TV.........

My name is Chris.
I have this Phillips Wide Screen TV that didn't have or come with a remote, so I had to go out and buy a universal remote for it today from a BIG W Store.
I'm having some technical difficulties & problems with switching and turning it on, but as I use the universal remote to turn on the TV, I'm having a bit of a slight problem with it turning it on, Ok, Yes, it works and Powers on, but there is nothing showing or giving me the indication that there is no picture or sound showing up on this Wide Screen Phillips TV, But there is a little red & green light at the bottome right hand corner that keeps on flashing red when ever I use the universal remote to switch the power on.
Is there a possibility, that i can get some help on here, to help me out with any suggestions, is to why I'm not getting any picture or sound showing up on this TV with this universal remote ?
Is there anyway that i can maybe get some help with this to help me out with solving my issue with the Phillips Wide Screen TV ?
The TV might have set to Hotel mode. To get it out from this mode, you have to enter its service alignment mode [SAM]. Check this link to get more details about it. It is too much to type in here, al the procedure. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its
left side bar, or view it in Timeslide option.
That problem is one of the common problems of plasma TV (have sounds but no picture)..As a expert of flat panel for more than 5 years I already encounter that kind of problem many times..
Actually that problem is caused of either X,Y or Z sustain board or even both 3 boards are faulty..Because some models when the one of those boards have short circuit or bad there are possibility that other sustain board are affected..But most the problem like yours is "Y-SUSTAIN" board..
Pretty much. This nice thing about RCA stuff, more than any other brand, is that the universal remotes they sell will run their equipment without (most of the time) the need to try additional RCA codes. I know this from personal experience.
* Point it at a TV set and press the Mute/Power button. (Mute button if
TV is already on, or Power button if the TV hasnt already been turned on)
* Keep pointing it at the TV until the TV turns on or muted, most TVs respond in about
5 seconds, the most is up to 20 seconds. (Other universal television remote you find in
stores take minutes to program and enter long confusing codes)
* Once the TV is muted or turns on, simply let go of button and you have total
control. You can use the remote as if you had the original remote, and responds instantly. ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM of choices
with our remote!
Most remote controls require minutes of programming a universal remote code
into each television while you read the confusing instruction manual.
