Question about Philips 32PT9005D TV
Took Philips 32PW9544/05M to my parents, attached areial but there doesn't seem to be much reception. One channel (BBC 1) is snowy but there is sound. All other channels are just a blue screen with no sound. TV worked fine the night before and their old TV works with no problems with all the same connections. Tried everything we can think of; changing leads around, pressing every button on remote. Don't know how to tune or reset channels from remote. Do bigger TV's need an areial booster or something? Please help!?
Hi, Your question "Do bigger TV's need an aerial booster or something?" - No, normally it should work straight out. Boosters are used for fringe location not bigger TV. Pls a questions and some ideas: 1. "TV worked fine the night before" was it hooked up to Cable or aerial? 2. If cable, it is necessary that you change the settings of the TV from cable to STD or Air or something like that. Normally this can be done via the remote, menu, setting, set-up; 3. If aerial, you would probably need the assistance of a qualified service personnel. Apparently something got loose inside the Philips TV, not a big problem because you can still receive (BBC 1) but not the other channels, possibly a loose wiring, a disconnected connector. 4. If you feel comfortable working on it yourself, unplug the tv and the aerial, open the back and poke around. Trace from the aerial jack, the lead wires used, the connector to the main circuitry. Wiggle the wires a bit for any loose connection. 5. If #4 is not to your liking or if you do not find anything or no significant improvement after closing it up and running it again, guess you're back to #3. Hope this gives you some idea. Lots of luck and kind regards from the Philippines.
