Question about Philips 60P8341 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Remote control The original remote stopped working. I bought a new Philips Universal remote and programmed it. It worked for a few minutes and then stopped working. I did this several times and each time the new remote would work for only a few minutes. Thanks for any help. Gigi

    I failed to mention that this is the second new remote control that I have tried. The other one was a universal remote, not a Philips and the same thing happened. I think that it's something with the TV, not the actual remote.

    Any more suggestions?

    I have the same problem. I know that the remote is not the issue because the I have a universal remote that works on everything else and when I use the original remote I have the same problem. The TV works fine for a few minutes and then very sparingly when trying to change channels, volume, etc. I think it might be a loose connection somewhere, but was hoping to get some good advice on the specifics before we call a repairman or fix it myself.

    I have cleaned the remote lens on the TV that doesn't seem to help.

Try installing a pair of new alkaline batteries into the remote. If the problem persists, I would suspect the remote is defective and return it to the store for a refund. I have used Philips remotes twice before, and had problems with both of them. I switched to a One-for-All universal remote, and it has been trouble-free, so far.

Remote will not work tv.i have replaced batts in remote.

If the set-top controls still are working, your remote may have died; it wouldn't be the first one, I've had to replace an original too when it developed a thermal problem requiring a shot of freeze spray inside to make it work for a few minutes.
If the local controls are also not functional, the IR receiver in the set may have died. The output from this module is tied into the same circuit as the set's controls so if that function fails, neither will work.
If you need to replace your remote, don't just buy a 'universal' since none of these really are universal. If you intend to do that, at least check the remote mfr.s site to see if the remote contains the code set for your Philips.
Otherwise, you can nearly always get an original here:

Fault with TV remote sensor section circuit is very rare.
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys.

Dont worry about programming a universal remote for use with only one device like a Tv because after you program it. only a few functions like the basic functions of the remote will work. for example the "Power", channels keys, and volumn. you will not be able to make that remote work for any other features, like PIP, menu, aspect, input, etc. I suggest getting the original remote control. usually has a suitible replacement or the original manufactures remote that comes with your TV.
