So i've had a 30PW8420 tv for almost a year. I recently discovered a nifty little menu called "SAC" i believe (you access it by pressing 062596 and the menu button, and then holding down the Volume - and Channel - buttons)
This menu included many tings, but the msot important thing for me was the "Geometry" section, because the vertical and horizontal settings on the set were a little screwed up.
Anyways, the problem is i may have accidentally hit the wrong button at the wrong time. I was crolling through the menu, and i saw something that said like "activate SAMC mode" or along those lines. I did, and the tv shut itself off afterwards. i don't remember if those were the exact letters, but i'm 100% sure there was 4 letters. Now when i try to turn it on, i "hear" the sound of the tv powering on, and teh LED turning on, but then it shuts itselff off before the picture or sound comes.
Also, something interesting. I can turn it on by pressing the volume and channel buttons on the set itself. Weird, huh?

Hi. It's really necessary to have the original remote. All so called replacment do not have the "menu" button. In Philips TV's access code is not rquired. In your case, some channels are "whiped" and cannot be recalled. If you can go into setup-menu, things can be rearranged. There are numerous web-shops where you can buy an orignal remote. I recently bought an original remote for my DVD player. This however was at an on-line shop in Belgium. Just surch for Pilips on line shops in your country. Good luck.
Hello First of all, you must ahve its original remote control to unlock FPA lock. If you have it, go through the folloing steps. * Hold down Menu button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the at the same time for at least 4 seconds. "The set won't say so, but the lock will be released". ** Hold down Zero button on the remote control, and the Volume Down button on the TV. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released. *** Hold down Menu button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be released.
Have you check the manual universal remote? where you find the code, you have to cosiderate the philips on listed, then try all the code, before that tell him, how works this function the univeral remote.
There is a smt located at 7404 [C-6 Bottom] A common problem, does the tv make a sound like it wants to come on? Location 3239 should be small resistor, 3414 another resistor and a driver transformer at 5402 if it looks burned. See MCM electronics website and see if there is a kit to repair this. Or ask for part #s as per location of problem area mentioned. What you will be doing is changing the timing so all the components will come on at the same time. If this is done correctly you will notice the top of tv screen will flash red, green and blue lines. This will be the new norm each time you turn it on. But it will be OK. This is what the flashing green light is telling you. signed the Green Lantern7!!!!!!!
The led code indicates vert failure for one. ( 3 blinks )
The 2 blinks indicates excess beam current of which could be your picture tube or re-adjusting the G2 voltage on the HV transformer which is very critical on philips sets.
