Philips 19pfl5402d/27 tuner problem?

I bought the above tv new and when I autoprogrammed it many channels were tuned in a weird (61.2.3) format and several channels (CNN, ESPN, VH1, etc.)
do not appear at all. I exchanged the set at Target for a new one, with the same result. Any ideas?

P.S. This is not a cable issue.

How do i get regular tv channels no cable or direct tv. I have a 32' magnavox model #32MF338B/F7

I'm not sure about the model number of your TV, as here it is marked as both "27MS343S and 32MF338B/F7". Anyway I gies this solution as for the first denoted.
Insert antena to the antena socket at the back side of your TV marked as 75Ohms antena input.
[1] Press "Menu" button on the remote control handset to display menu on screen.
[2] Press "Vol+ or Vol--" button repetedly to hilight "TUN" [Tuner].
[3] Press "Ch+ or Ch--" button to hilight 'AUTOPROGRAM"
[4] Press "Vol+" to programming tv channels.
Tv will tune and store channels transmitted channels at that time, through entire bands, and will display the first channel receved after tuning process completed. It may take some minutes. You have to wait it to complete. After displaying the first channel, you can select your favourite channel Using CH+ or CH--" buttons. Ok.

How do I do a channel scan?

Press Menu on the TV (second button from the left) or the remote. Use the Vol + / Vol - buttons to highlight Tuner, only available when the input is the TV (press TV/AV to get to the correct source) mode. Press Ch+/Ch- to highlight AutoProgram and then Vol+ to start the search for channels. The TV will show Tuning Finished when done and then go to the lowest channel found. If you want to add or remove stations, tune to the desired channel, then press Menu, and highlight Tuner, Ch+/Ch- to highlight Add/Erase, then Vol+/Vol- to set Add or Erase. Press TV/AV/Exit to get out of the menu.

I hope this helps.

Any idea why on my new sharp 32" lcd tv, all cable channels except 57 & 58 (CNN) work fine, but on these channels the sound goes off and on, like there is a short in the sound. all other tvs and cable work...

If you do not have problems with picture and sound on all the other working channels, then the problem you are having with 57 & 58 cannot be a short. The problem you are having is that those channels will not tune in properly through your tuner and this is why you get intermittent sound when they are trying to tune in. The sound tunes in easier than the picture. You said that you have programmed the channels again and I am assuming you are talking about the autoprogramming mode. Try to program those channels individually by deleting them and then readding them. If you cannot do that then you need to take the tv back since it is new or have warranty service look at your tuner and setup your tuner by making adjustments to it directly. Good luck and God bless.

How to re tune a 20 pt 4673/75R Tv without original remote. Thanks John

That has a PLL tuner that retunes everytime you change channels so there is no fine tuning.

If it is out of tune, then the tv needs repair. If you need to switch from Air to Cable or Cable to Air and then Autoprogram, that would be in the menu.

The model number does not appear in my Philips cross reference. Generally, the Menu is a seperate button or pressing the Volume Up and Down together until the Menu displays.

Tuning problem

Your TV is set to Antenna. You need to go into the menu and change it to Cable. Then do an autoprogram.

On many televisions with built-in tuners, you have to tell the tuner whether it will be connected to cable or antenna, since the RF spectrum is different for these.  Make sure you have cable selected (assuming you are connecting to the cable service) and then try the autoprogramming again.

I have the 13 inch and...

If you get channels 2 to 13 nice and clear but the rest are snowy, it means that the TV is set to the broadcast channels, which means that for the channels above 13 it is tuning in the old-fashioned UHF channels. If the TV is set to the cable mode then it tunes in cable channels above 13. To do this, enter the menu and navigate to the tuner settings, set the tuner to standard cable and then do the autoprogram, and the tuner's memory will be set for your cable system.
