Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Philips remote control doesn't speak to the TV. I have tested the remote control on my other Philips TV and it works fine. The TV works fine with the buttons on the unit, it's just I can't use the remote!

    Hi that didn't work so I'm thinking I need a new IR receiver like you said. Model number is 22HFL3330D/10. Would it be easy to fit myself?

The TV uses an internal IR receiver to communicate with the remote. If the TV is not working when you use The TV's own remote, and if the remote has been tested and its working, then the problem is the IR board or circuit located inside the TV.

Before calling support try disconnecting TV power cord for fifteen-twenty minutes, flip out remote batteries for one minute, then reassemble remote and restart the TV. The power down will reset internal circuits.

If that doesn't work, the IR receiver inside the TV must be replaced. The part is not expensive. Call the service number listed on the owners manual to call support. Verify warranty status and ask a quote on repair.

If you want directly locate the part, let me know model of the TV in question.

    The IR board is not difficult to replace, but you will still need to disassemble the TV. The manuals say that service must be carried by a trained person.

    Here is a service manual.

    The IR board is pictured at page 11 in service manual, see pic.4.3.6.

    The board is not expensive, but parts for this model are not listed on web. The part must be ordered from Philips.

I don't have the user instructions for my Philips remote. Need to set up my TV - purchased the remote in 2010, it doesn't show a model/name on it anywhere. How do I find the instructions or apply...

If the TV is a Panasonic, I'm sure the Phillips remote wont work unless it is a "universal" remote. You will need to code it in to work on your TV if its a universal one. See if it has an auto scan button on the remote.

They really are not much help, they will likely direct you to a Philips Authorized Repair Shop. Hope you have warranty or some kind of insurance. Damage from a storm does not fall under warranty. Good Luck!

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box

I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.
