Question about Televison & Video
Phillips 30inch virtual surround sound system
SOURCE: 15-inch Phillips LCD FlatTV
It could be the AC adapter. That is easy enough to check with a DMM. Turn on the meter, set to volts dc, push red probe into the hole in the output power jack and touch the black probe to the outside of the same jack. Have someone plug the AC cord into a good outlet(one you know has power). If the adapter is working you should see 12 vdc displayed on the meter. There still could be a problem as I recently found an adapter which displayed the correct voltage with no load but little or no voltage with a load. Testing with a load is a problem if you are not familiar with the procedure. Odds are if you have 12 vdc the adapter is fine and you have a short somewhere in the monitor. If you are handy with tools and feel confident, remove the back of the unit and check the fuses in the power supply. If they check OK you probably can't do much more. Unless you are an electronic tech you will need to take the unit to a shop for repair by a qualified tech. Good luck.

I just did some research on this problem and found a fix. If your tv has a powersaver feature on it turn it off i put mine on standard and my remote works fine now. weird but it works!

Try this ..
The Factory code number is 0 0 0 0 If the code has been changed, You can select to reset it using the Setup Code either under the channel blocking or setup code section.
Once there, Press 0 7 1 1
You will be given a message "INCORRECT ACCESS CODE"
Press 0 7 1 1 on the remote again
Next, "enter your new access code" shows on screen.
Now you can enter a new 4 digit code. (write it down somewhere)

If you still have the remote that came with the television set you can try to perform a remote reset. If that works than the remote that came with the television as well as the two universal ones should work. I am posting one form of remote reset but the customer service reps at Philips might have a different one that works well on their televisions. There are some variations. Some support representatives will have you press each button on the remote twice:
You have to unplug the television after turning it off. Take the batteries out of the remote control. Point the remote toward the remote sensor (bottom right hand corner of the television set). Press the power button on the remote control and hold it down for 30 full seconds. Next press and release every button on the remote control. Next plug the tv back in and power it on from the power button on the television itself. Replace the batteries. Adjust the volume using the remote control. If that works the problem is solved. If it doesn't work you may need a software update, a new remote control, or repair to the sensor on your television.
To see if your remote control is working look at it through the viewscreen of a digital camera. The digital camera must be turned on and ready to take a picture. Next press a channel button on the remote control. Do you see a bluish white light? If so the remote control is ok.
