If you cannot find the remote control at all, you will need to reprogram the EPROM IC. This IC is inside the tv, with numbers starting or in between 24c02.... Please contact any qualified tehnican for further help. The IC i mentioned is programmed and at present it is locked through Hotel Mode. Also try to look RESET switch, to reset the whole unit. Thanks

How do i get my panasonic th37pr9u out of hotel mode....i have tried a few things i found online but no remedy has worked.


Getting out of the hotel mode is very easy. Just go get the Panasonic remote and open your tv. Go near the tv and hold down the V/- button on the television itself. Then use the remote and press the AV button for 3 times. A hidden menu on the television screen will appear. Turn off the "Hotel Mode" from the menu and exit. Do not touch anything from the hidden menu except the hotel mode. Now you can use your tv in normal mode. The remote is required to access the hidden menu so be sure your remote is working and has working or full charged battery before doing the steps above

Helllo, wanted to know how to get out of hotel mode


The following are for LG TVs: From your remote, push MENU button for 5 seconds then type 1105 and press OK. You should now have a special menu displayed where you can modify the settings or disable hotel mode. Use the same procedure to go back and modify or enable hotel mode.

HPC Monitor won't change input


Try a replacement remote control. A good one is a Philips Universal which can be found at Walmart or Right-aid. Around $14 bucks, and is very modern and up to date for just about all flat panel sets. (It's also a learning remote, so it will learn remotes).

Hi, I just bought an older model Philips Magnavox from a hotel(Model Number: TL7127C107 Chassis Number: 27B700-7562). The T.V. itself works fine but I can't access all my channels. I did a little research...


sorry, it wont go away, bet ya got it cheap huh(nothing intended by cheap) but the tv hotel mode is telling you that its a special tuner made for just hotels, the only way to get around this is if you can replace the hotel type tuner on the main-board with a normal type tuner, it'll cost more than you paid though.good luck,a friend of mine bought 12 of then at $25 each, boy he thought what a deal, now he's really crying and they didn't tell him,and they won't refund his money

Can't find menu on hotel tv


YOU WILL NEED THE SPECIAL REMOTE TO DO THIS. AND I THINK SOME OF THEM HAVE ABILITY IN SERVICE MENU TO TURN OFF HOTEL MODE. OR YOU CAN TRY USING ANY PHILLIPS/MAGNAVOX REMOTE WITH THE STATUS BUTTON AND TRY THIS.
PRESS MENU-9-6-5-2-STATUS AND YOU SHOULD BE IN THE SERVICE MODE TURN OFF THE HOTEL MODE

Trying to get channels above 42 to 99


I had the same problem the solution is you have to get institutional remote and reset the tv from commercial mode to consumer mode and then you will have access to the full menu. go to www.phillipsitv.com to get the directions. I actually asked a Hotel could I borrow their master remote used it and took it back and my tv works fine. Hope this helps.
