Most cable TV systems that use a set top box or converter output on channel 3 or channel 4.

If you have HD cable service however, you probably watch on one of the A/V or HDMI inputs (Video 1, Video 2, etc.). Simply press the Video or A/V input selector, slowly & repeatedly until a picture & sound is seen and heard.

Make sure the power to your cable box is on. Then on your television set change the channel to 3. (often people make the mistake of pressing the channel buttons on the cable box. dont do this) TV should be set to channel three and the power to the cable box will need to be on. If this doesnt work check to make sure all cables are connected, mainly your coaxial cable. This will usually be a black cable and has a needle like point in the center Hope this helps

I accidentally pressed a wrong button when I was changing back to TV after watching a video. then the screen became snowy and I'm unable to get back to TV mode. I need help!


Hello rgas,
do you know if you have cable or satellite? Look on your remote and for a button called input or source and click on it. Remember what input it is set on first then try changing through each input. See if you get anything. If nothing still, go back to the original input it was on and change the channel to channel 3. If you have cable or satellite, turn it on. If nothing appears, go to input/source scroll through each input and hopefully you should get a picture. Good luck.

If the cable from the cable box is attached to the TV via a coax cable, then all you need to change the TV channel to either Channel 3 or Channel 4. You may have accidentally push the CH button on the TV remote. Please post back what you find.

Even with the TV in the wrong mode, you should be able to see some channels lower than 12. Try that first and report here what you see. If you can get a few in that range (2-12) but nothing else, then the TV is in broadcast mode not cable. You will need to change it to cable mode to get the remaining channels. You should be able to locate a universal remote for $5 or so that will allow you to get into the menus.

Unable to select channels using the unit


First, test to make sure the Philips remote is working by trying to play a dvd. If the remote control is working, then either A) your TV is set to the wrong channel, or B) you have not selected the correct source on the Philips remote.

Look at how the cables run from the back of the Philips to the TV. In the back of your TV, the slot that the cables are plugged in to is usually labelled "AV1, "AV2, "Video 1", "Input 1" or something like that. Change the television to the appropriate input/source channel.

Press the Source button on the Philips remote and make sure it says E1 or whatever the appropriate source is.

Then try changing channels using the Philips remote.

This does not exhaust every possibility, but you must check the above first to see if anything else might be wrong. If the above does not work, then I would double-check to make sure the cable/satellite box is connected to the Philips correctly.

How to tune my digital chanels in my bush lcd tv


i just saw a post which I believe will solve my problem (I connected to the wrong coax antenna plug). I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure that is the problem.

Here's the post from akai_owner from 2007:

Look at the back of your TV. Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)

Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs. Wait one second between pushes. You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen. It should show a number, for the current channel number.

If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4. If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one. If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active). Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.

Unable to get cable channels past channel 33.


Your problem is likely not your TV. It's due to the signal being provided by your cable company. I suggest that you contact the cable service provider which you are using and advise them of the problem.
