Question about Philips Magnavox SC3127N 27" TV

1 Answer

Channel three is missing

We were watching tv and suddenly it went to a fuzzy black and white screen. We've tried getting it back to channel 3 but it only goes to channel 2 or 4. We've tried reprogramming the remote and also doing it by hand. All the other channels come up but we need 3 so we can watch the tv.

    Your advice using 03 to get channel 3 restored worked. Thank you for restoring peace for two elderly people.

Hi pasu, Normally if you can get/program Chs 2 and/or 4 as well the other channels, then Ch 3 should also be programmable. If this is not possible, perhaps you can try to manually program by selecting "03" and add to the memory "+" in some brands/model. If this is still a no go, perhaps you should seek the services of qualified professional since this would apparently be an internal software problem. You can also try a hard/full reset by unplugging the TV from the mains for couple of hours or as prescribed by your TV's user manual. If the TV has Video input features, a possible temporary work around the TV's Ch3 problem is to use the Video1 or the Audio/Video INput of your TV and use an old VCR to connect to your cable box. Remove the coaxial cable from your cable box to your TV and connect it to the RF/TV INput of your VCR. Use a 3 way RCA to RCA connector (usually Yellow, Red & White) to couple the Audio/Video OUTput of the VCR to the Audio/Video INput of the TV. Select Video mode in your TV (so it doesn't matter even if you cannot program Ch3). Power up your VCR, select Ch3 in your VCR's tuner. I assume that to select channels you wish to view, you use a remote and channel selection is done in your cable box. What worries me is "...went to a fuzzy black and white screen..." which is indicative of another fault. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Only suggestion is if set was plugged in when you did what you did--unplug it and any box or receiver plugged in and wait a while--plug back and let the equipment try to reboot.

Probably not. RCA parts for this model are very difficult to find. Even you could find a kit, it will not have enough to repair. A do it yourselfer or TV tech will have a difficult time repairing this. Please shop for a new TV. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Cable on TV suddenly went to black & white (and a bit fuzzy)(some channels show faint colour). Was fine, nothing was changed, one day was suddenly B&W. TV screen is not the problem, all other cable...

Was playing around with the TV's menu and changed the Tuning Band from "HRC cable" to "IRC cable". Suddenly I have colour again. No one had adjusted any of the controls, so still not sure why one day it was fine and the next day it had gone to black and white, but changing the Tuning Band fixed the colour problem for me.

Front panel blocked or locked

RCA Entertainment Series 32" Plus Gold, GEMSTAR, xbox ready has been in the shop twice so far. Transformer replaced and 6 months later the picture suddenly had horizontal white lines that gradually spaced apart more from top to bottom and it had a gray hue and fuzzy, but I still watched it for 3 months that way. Today I turned it on and about a minute later I heard a loud crackling sound coming from the back and the picture disappeared, screen went black. Is it worth fixing again? Please contact me at [email protected]

Try resetting the TV by unplugging from wall outlet for 3 to5 minutes then plug back in. If no fixya take front grill off and panel and adjust the screen controls, turn color off adjust for Black & White Picture. Good Luck, big IRISH.
