You posted a solution to my problem before with only being able to use the remote to turn on & off the tv, continuous channel searching when I switch to TV from DVD mode, etc. I don't have a cable box, it's just a cable line from the tv to the wall, and the cable people have checked and think it's not the cable, it's the tv. Any ideas? Once I tried turning on the power and clicking the tiny "program" button on top of the tv with a pencil, which got it back to normal for a week or so, but now I'm back to the same issues.

If you unplug the power cord, let it sit for a minute and plug it back in, it should let you turn the tv on by the button at least once. Then you can at least get the remote linked up. Please reply back to your post if this resolved the issue. I would rather you try this first before going further.
Turn on your TV (or other device). You will have to do this manually until you program your Philips remote control
Look for the "Setup" or "Code Search" button on the Philips remote control. Which button your remote has will depend on the exact Philips remote control you are using. This button may be a different color or may be labeled.
Hold either the "Setup" or "Code Search" button for about 10 seconds. If your remote has a light, the light should begin blinking. If there is no light, you can just count to 10 and then let go of the button.
Press the "TV" button on the remote to program the Philips remote to your television set
Find and press either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the remote. Continue pressing either button until the television channel changes. This may take several minutes. Once the channel changes, press the "Power" button on the remote to turn off the TV. Your Philips remote will now be programmed to your television.
What source are you using? If cable, you should only be able to pickup channel 3 or 4 if you're using the box. If there is no antenna, that would be the only other answer if the set checks out...accordianman
Hi everyone, I don't know if you have solved your issues yet or not, since these posts are from a while ago, but I have had the same issue. The problem is that of the back-light inverter circuit. The original part is defective and the chip that powers the coils will continually burn out. You can pick up a cheaper replacement substitute here:
Not unless you have taken the time to learn all the safety issues concerning the HI voltage safety facts, in the repair of electronics? It sounds like your tv has a problem in the sweep/power supply circuits, and since these sets have NO user serviceable parts< its best too leave these types of repairs to a certified electronic technician. Good Luck
sounds like a power regulator problem, a horizontal drive problem,or the horizontal output is shorted because of a bad flyback transformer. If your not a technician there are no user serviceable parts inside these sets and i would advise you to take the set to a pro and have it diagnosed as you could get seriously killed fooling around inside of a tv set. God Luck
