Troubleshooting

How to improve the picture quality of Philips TV?

Check your cables and cable-connections.

  • Make all your cables as short as possible.
  • Use high quality antenna cable.
  • Connect the plugs well into their sockets.
  • Do not use an antenna cable splitter. Splitting the signal will make it considerably weaker.
  • Change the picture settings on your TV. The standard configuration is set to match the conditions in a TV shop.

You can use the [Picture] on the remote control to set your TV to a predefined picture mode that will give you the best picture quality.

  1. Press the [Back] button on the remote control to access the main menu.
  2. Select [Picture] and press the cursor [Right] to access the picture menu.
  3. Press the cursor [Up] or [Down] to access the picture settings.
  4. Press the cursor [Right] to select and uses the cursor button to adjust them according to your preferences and press the [OK] button to confirm.
  5. Press the [Back] button to exit the menu.

What is HDMI?

  • The HDMI is the abbreviation of High-Definition Multimedia Interface.

  • HDMI is one-way connection that connects digital audio/video sources such as a set-top box, an HD DVD disc player, a Blu-ray Disc player, a PC, video game console, or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV).

  • HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image.

  • The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device.

  • The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
