If you are using a Cable Box, then select the Cable Box option in the TV. If you have connected the Antenna directly to the TV, then select the Antenna option in the TV under Menu options. Try performing the Auto program.......If using a Cable Box, then no need to perform the Auto program. If the issue persists, try resetting the TV to the factory settings and check if it helps.
Hi dsmcfarland there are acouple of things you can do so the remote works better. On the receiver selectthe System Info button, it will take you to the System Info screen, at thebottom you will see two white boxes the first saying "primary remote address"and "secondary remote address". With the TV1 remote press and release the SATbutton and press Record button one time. You will see the primary addresschange and then press Select button on the remote. I will send a link to helpout with these steps.
If you have the owner's guide at home, shoot me the model number from the set itself; it should be shown on the guide.
If I can determine the nature of the 'receiver box,' perhaps I can suggest a work-around.
I have a feeling that is a converter of some kind and it may be of a type not brand dependent; i.e., replaceable with another brand.
I'd really like to help you and gain some insight into this problem too.
You likely need to select channel three or four on the TV itself if you have any kind of box between you and the signal source (cable, antenna, satellite).
Magnavox is a name owned previously by Philips and now by Funai.
They may not have all the info from Magnavox and Philips but you could check their website to see if they have the instruction manual for download.
Look under 'Support'
This is to do with the capacitors inside the TV numbers 2662, 2663 and 2664 - If you unscrew the back panel of the tv you will see the capacitors towards the top of the tv, from memory around the middle.
Replace the capacitors (make sure you get the polarity the right way round) and you should find all is ok.
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output: *Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK ) This will look like a single RCA output plug. Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it). Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
I have found this on a site and am in the proccess of trying to mend my plasma PF9964 as it started to take longer and longer until it stopped coming on. I've got the back off so I just need to un solder capacitors and replace.
Here's the info I found.
Bad power switch circuit
If you have this problem with your Philips 32PF9964: When I switch the TV on, it appears as though it is going to start i.e the green light comes on, then after about 10 seconds it switches itself off and the standby light flashes red. It takes 10 /12 times before it starts and is getting worse.
This is the solution:
The problem is three caps.
Change the cap 2663, 2664 both 100µ/25V
and 2662,1000µ/25V. After you have changed them your TV will work again.
You will find them easy if you unscrew the back on the plasma TV.
