Trying to get channels above 42 to 99

As many others have, I bought a good cond. Phillips hotel TV. Turned it on, good picture and sound. I knew there was no remote so set up a universal remote.

What I didn't know was even though it is on my cable system, I can't get any channel above 42.

Any tricks ot ideas or solutions?

Thanks.

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.

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.........

Power light but no picture or sound


Hi!
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 ?

I can't access my main menu for my Phillips 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.

Phillips 42PFP53320 42" Plasma TV. No picture,


Hello jporter...

welcome here in fixya..

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..

I can't find your model online please double check it it either Phillips 42PFP5332D/37 or 42PFP5532D/05

And for specific and easy way to find replacement please try to look at the part # of that board (it is usually printed on the sticker attach to the board itself..

Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate my answer..

Have a nice day!!!

regards,
Chester.

I HAVE A J25420 TV WHICH I BOUGHT FROM A HOTEL AND I LOST THE REMOTE CONTROL. WILL ANY UNIVERSAL RCA REMOTE WORK FOR THIS TV ?


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.

I have a Zenith Tv that I bought from a resale store after it had been used by a hotel. When the hotel had owned it they had programmed it to return to a specified channel every time that it is turned off...


there should be an auto program on the menu, but you can also download the complete manual for this model here http://www.retrevo.com/support/Zenith-B27A11Z-TVs-manual/id/277dj086/t/2/

NEED SONY CODES FOR PHILLIPS REMOTE


Universal Remote Control Simple Setup

* 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.
