    i just bought the dvd recorder w/vcr and i thought i could plug it in and turn on philips model 27pt543s37a tv;purchased in 2004 and the initial blue "choose language etc." screen would come on automatically. can i save this unit and get back to set up;or did i mess with it "in a rush" and the best solution is to exchange it.

CLARIFICATION:
Is this a new DVD player / first time setup? Are the cables connected properly? What exactly do you see on the screen?

    If you have just bought it, take it back to the store and see if they can show you how to set it up. If it doesnt work there as well, then you are covered. Just ask for a replacement.

    PS. Are you sure you rated the solution correctly/for the right response?

    The first thing i would suggest you to do is a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 30min and then plug it back in.Make sure that everything is pluged in properly and tightly into the right sockets of the player.

    if this gets the setup screen then its good.Or else i am sure you must have got the manual with it try out a few troubleshooting steps from that first.Even after trying all the things from the manual if it doesn't fix your problem then i would suggest you to immediately get it replaced.



    Thank you for using fixya

Cant find set up screen


the system is not easy and I have had the same problem with my moms. The one thing I know is you have to be able to get it in the setup mode for anything to work correct. If you are using the rca jack outputs in the rear (e1 is the dvd vhs video and audio out and e2 is on the front of the box and that is for video and audio in) you have to hit source and put it to e1. When you hit source on the remote it will go from tv I believe it will say channel 3,hit it again it goes to e1 and then to e2. If you are using the cable in and out put the source to tv or ch3. to record from vhs to dvd you have to push the button on the front I believe its called dubbing. It is the only diffrent colored button. This automatically sets it up you should be able to watch the video being recorded while it is recording to the dvd. Make sure you have the correct type dvd I know the +R work. It is very important to get the setup done and that is the hardest part to get too. Also remember if you are using video out(rca jacks) you must switch your tv to video in and if you are using the old style cables you set your tv to ant1 or ant 2 depending what input you are using. The problem with this is having to know your tv and what source you have set on it, ant1 or ant2 or video 1,2,or 3. It all depends on how you take the video and audio out of the vcr/dvd player. Once again if you use rca jacks you must use the remote source button and put it to e1 and then put the other end of the jacks to video input of the tv and change the source on the tv to video also. If you use the old cable in and out you must change the source on the vcr/dvd remote to ch3 and set the tv to ant 1 or 2 depending on how may inputs you have. you must match the systems. Hope this helps

Just set the channel to a non-premium channel (ABC, CBS, PBS, etc.) before starting the dubbing process.

Will not create auto chapters


Bart, many Phillips recorders seem to have a problem with creating auto chapters when it is set to auto chapter every 5 minutes. Set it to 10 minutes or more.
