I brought a philips TV model 34pw850h37f from a hotel. I can not get it to work. It comes on, the screen is blue with AV2 in the upper right corner. The tech.support at philips would not give me any information because it is a commercial unit. Can you tell me how to get this TV to work.
Did you get the remote control with it? i have the same model AV2 if jsut one of likr 4 or 5 inputs for this model, if you have cable signal hooked up, use the AV button on the remote to toggle between all of them, Remotes for this model are available too, Just google.com the model number of TV
Picture is great my me

TV's most commonly found in Hotels do not have an input button which is what you would use on almost every TV set out there.
I believe that if you go to channel 2 and then channel down there maybe an AV1, AV2, Video1, Video2 or even an A1, or A0, etc.. This is what you will need to tune the TV to in order to watch a movie from the VCR or DVD player using the RCA Cables.
Unfortunately there is not a user manual online at this time, but this is where you would find it:
sorry, it wont go away, bet ya got it cheap huh(nothing intended by cheap) but the tv hotel mode is telling you that its a special tuner made for just hotels, the only way to get around this is if you can replace the hotel type tuner on the main-board with a normal type tuner, it'll cost more than you paid though.good luck,a friend of mine bought 12 of then at $25 each, boy he thought what a deal, now he's really crying and they didn't tell him,and they won't refund his money
At least a couple of possibilities, check the yellow video cable that runs from the VCR to the TV, is it plugged into the side of the combo unit that says vcr?
Is your TV on the right source? You could have plugged the audio into say AV2 and the video into AV1, causing a mismatch. Make sure the yellow, red, and white are all plugged into one input section on the TV (AV1, AV2, Video 1, Video 2, etc).
Turn off the video mute if it has this setting. Try using a VCR tuner and connect the VCR to the TV on AV1 or AV2 inputs. THis fix is free until Feb. 09. After that, you will need a DTV converter box or pay for a cable/sat box.
If cable is hooked through cable box with a coaxial cable, then turn tv to ch 3 or ch 4 as appropriate.
If cable is hooked through any other type of cord (red/green/blue or red/white/yellow) use the AV+ or Source button to change your source to Av1, AV2, HDMI, or however you have the cable box hooked to TV (I am assuming your TV is a Philips).
