Question about Philips PM435S Remote Control

1 Answer

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen

I recently switched to a Philips Universal Remote Control, read the directions, and easily set it. It seemed to be working fine. I hit the menu button, then the up/down keys while watching the DVD. Maybe I hit another button by accident? I don't know. At any rate, the TV menu appeared instead of the DVD menu so I hit Quit. The menu turned off, but a large, solid black rectangle remained on the TV screen, covering almost the entire bottom half of the screen. The rectangle is there regardless of whether the TV is on or the DVD. I have hit every combination of buttons on the remote that I can imagine, but I can't get the black rectangle to go away permanantly. I tried using the original DVD remote as well, but that didn't do anything. If I hit some of the buttons (quit, mute, others) it goes away for about five seconds and then pops back. It's driving me crazy. Any suggestions? The remote, incidently, is called Universal Consolidator by Philips.

I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D

I have a Philips tv model 42FD9954/69c but it doesn't have a remote so I cant turn it on how do you get it to work with a universal remote ?!


Most TVs have controls on the side of the TV to operate power, volume and channels, if the power button puts it to standby then use the Chanel up or down to turn it on! Depending on the universal remote being used just select the code relevant to the make of TV you are connecting to!

Hi there,

Well your Philips universal remote control comes with a list of codes for devices by brand name.
Find the first code for the brand name and type of device you wish to program. Turn all of your devices off, and then manually turn on the device you want to program.
Press the Setup button on your the universal remote and continue to hold it down until the indicator light stops flashing and remains solid. Release the Setup button. Press the Mode button for the type of device you want to program on your Philips universal remote, such as the TV.Release it immediately and make sure the indicator light is illuminated. Enter the first possible four-digit code on the universal remote, and then press another button on the remote to see if the device is now programmed, such as the volume control or power button. If the device responds, you have successfully programmed your Philips universal remote. If not, turn the device off and back on and follow the steps again using the next code on the list. Repeat until the device successfully responds.

If your TV code is not listed on the manual then you can use the Remote Using Code Search Option -
Your Philips universal remote has a built-in code search feature that will find the correct code for your device. This process may take longer than using direct code entry, but can be helpful if you do not have access to the code list or if the brand for your device is not listed.

Make sure all of your devices are turned off, and then manually turn on the first device. Press the Code Search button and hold it down until the red indicator light stays illuminated. Press the Mode button for the type of device you want to program on your Philips universal remote, such as the TV button.  Release it immediately and make sure the indicator light is illuminated. Press either the Channel button until the device responds. You may have to press the button up to 300 times. Each time you press the button, the Philips universal remote tries a new code. When the code works, press the Mute button on the Philips universal remote and the code will be stored.

I thing you wrongly do the second option that creates the problem. No issue, if your tv code not listed on the manuals then you can go with the second (code search) solution. Please post comments for further help or information.........

Good Luck!!

Thanks
