Limiting max volume on a Philips TV ??


I need to make a limitation for the maximum volume on my TV. This means that how much you ever try to go louder with the buttons both on the remot and TV, the volume needs to stop on a preset value. Is this possible ??

I've heard about a "hidden" menue or something where this is possible.

This is usual done by a volume limiter. There are many tvs that have them but if it is not displayed in the sound settings menu I would safely say that the tv does not have this feature.

2011 115hp 4stroke runs strong to 3800 rpm but won't throttle up any higher. Compression is good, injectors have been cleaned and new plugs.

Nearly all the things that could limit the maximum revs of a mechanical unintentional nature would probably cause the power to reduce as the maximum rpm is neared so acceleration would similarly reduce and if climbing a hill the maximum would never be reached.

If your description is accurate and the engine produces normal power to 3800 without tapering and won't go any further it is something only electronic rpm limiting is capable of rather than the usual culprits of strangled intake, strangled exhaust, insufficient fuel or timing problems. Sometimes it was something as simple as the throttle butterfly not opening fully.

Checking the injectors is only half the testing the fuel system should have - the fuel pressure and delivery volume and regulator function needs to be checked.

Opel once made an engine of 1.4 litre and over time it was stretched to 2.0 litres and beyond. That engine pulled strongly until it reached a ceiling of about 5400 rpm, less for a high mileage model. It was impossible to make the intake ports large enough or to maintain a sensible shape to the ports which made the rpm self limiting and was my only experience of what you describe in over 40 years. In all other cases of limited rpm the power always tapered because of external faults.

Is it possible to limit the volumn so that it cannot be put above 33 on the scale either from remote or on side of TV? Tried unlocking parental control, setting volumn and then relocking. Didnt work

volume limiting is self defeating because of the various volumes from different shows and different section of the shows. so there will not be a volume limiting switch/ mode on your set.

Hi! the M.vol does not get above 6db.. how can i fix it?

Your receiver has a customizable setting for volume limiting control, up to +18dB maximum.

Find your system setup button either on the front panel of the receiver or the remote control and press it, then press enter. On the display it will show number one, a two and a three. 1 is for speakers, 2 is for input and 3 is for option. You want to select number three.

Use the right arrow key to highlight number three with the cursor and press enter. Use your up or down arrow key to select the next item that appears on the display in a list. The first thing listed is the setting for the volume limit control. Use your right or left arrow key to select a limit up to 18dB which is the maximum, or select off, which is also the maximum. Then press enter.

Low sound, at maximum volume

possible reasons
is there a volume limiter switched on in the menu?
Is whatever is feeding the amp at the correct level, are you feeding from line out or does it depend on tv's volume settings?
Is it distorted, if not the amp is probably ok

Philips HTS8100 owner. Have ben using the soundbar since Decembr 2007 with no issues. it is intgrated with a sony bravia tv. tried to turn on sound (tv input) and have very limited sound. Turned up to...

Same problem with my HTS8100. Little-to-no sound. Sometimes sound comes on very intermittently. I downloaded the software patch from the Philips website and installed it. This fixed the sound problem for about a week, then the problem came back. I'm not sure what else to do.

Crate bass amp bt220 limit led is flashing with the volume only at half

You can reach the limiting IRRESPECTIVE of where the volume control is set when you have a guitar or other source that has HIGH output.

Guitars that have battery in them with internal amplifiers are an example of a high output guitar. Plain inductive pickups may require the volume control to be set at say 70% to reach limiting.

Please NOTE that the volume control is NOT linear, but is an "audio taper".

Limiting means you are probably driving it too hard. Many learn the hard way when speakers and thee power amp fail.

When the cone is driven too far beyond the pole pieces of the magnet, then the IMPEDANCE of the speaker becomes relatively low and can damage the power amp. The limiter tries to prevent this by sensing the current and or voltage and will back off the gain internally. This causes distortion when it happens.

Also some tv's have an option for sound limiting as far as max volume and steady volume.
