This unit has two tuner modules. one is the main tuner and the other is the slave or the pip tuner. it would apear from your description that the main tuner has failed. it is possible that this can be replaced.

The only channels available are throu ch 2-13, I have tried doing numerous auto searches. and have tried to restart it. I checked the cable, everthing is plugged tightly and nothing is frayed. It has done...

Make sure the TV is set for "CABLE" or "CATV" tuning. I forget on this model exactly where in the menus the setting is. Sorry. But it's usually in a general setup page, or part of the channel setup. If the TV is set for "AIR" or "ANTENNA" tuning, cable channels 14 and up won't be detected.

Rca hdtv channel changed by mistake

RCA channel setup and selection is not easy to understand. You may try to add channel 3 on the add/remove channel section. If that doesn't work try pressing the input button. Good Luck.

Channels disappearing

this would apear to be a defective main tuner which a tech can replace this unit has two identical tuner modules one for main and one for pip There could be a issue with something called rf switcher. the signal goes in and is switch or routed to the pip tuner. so somewhere between the switcher and tuner the signal is lost.

No display

Press the DVD button on the Philips remote. Make sure the yellow part of the RCA cable is plugged into Output/CVBS/Out on the back of the Philips, and that it is plugged into a yellow input of your TV. Change your TV channel to Av1, av2, video 1, video 2, aux, aux 2, or whatever the correct video channel is on your TV. Then press setup - you will get your picture.
In order for the coax connection to work on Ch. 3 of your TV, you will have to get an additional piece of equipment - an RF modulator. It's better just to stick with the RCA red, yellow, white cables.

The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.

Lost channels 2 through 52

I think the low band (Channel 2-6)in your tuner is not working. This could be in the tuner itself or in the band switching circuits. Possibly she deleted the low channels or locked them out. Stargazer
