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?

    Thanks

    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.

User manual /remote controll


Hi there,


You can download the manual for your tv if you use the link below it will take you to a site called diplodocs.com i have set the link up to take you to the right download page for your tv. If you click on the PDF file titled 'Download the complete user guide (2521 ko)' before it will allow you to download the manual it will ask you to rate your tv, it's easy to do and only takes a few seconds and it's also safe to do so. Once you have done that the 'download manual' box will activate, click on it you will then get a standard box open up with the options to 'open, 'save' cancel' you can choose which one you would like to do, if you save it then at least you will have a copy of the manual on your computer.
A universal remote control should be able to do the same functions as the original as you are able on some remotes to use their macro function to setup particular keys or a learning type of remote that will set itself up. Whether or not you would be happy with that is a seperate issue but if you do decide to go down that route then I would suggest to get the functionality you require you would want to buy a mid to higher end priced universal remote control made by either Philips or one for all. A direct Philips replacement remote control RC2015/01 which is listed as being the original remote is available to buy online, a quick look on one site was asking 44 US dollars.

Hope this helped,

James

Magnavox 52" Inch TV - The buttons on front will not work


If you do not have the manual for it, download it here:

http://www.nodevice.com/user_manual/philips/tv_projection1/51mp392h17.html

Check to see if the set has a parental lockout that might be active.

You can buy an original remote here:

http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m1=51mp392h17&uuid=12152988558390

Be cautious about buying a 'universal' remote, I've got a couple to sell - cheap.
They aren't very universal.

Remote control


Hello,

Just to make sure you have the correct remote, please match the part number you received to the part number in the link below (this is the original direct from Philips for that model).

50P8341 Original Replacement Remote

If the remote is correct, then you may have a problem with your IR remote receiver that is located on the TV set. This part however has been discontinued.

Find a universal remote with a menu and four arrow keys, b/c Philips is out of the original. Or, you could call Philips and find the number for one of their authorized centers - a TV repair man may have a stockpile of them from cust's who abandon their TVs.
