Troubleshooting

How can I manually program additional channel(s) to my Philips TV?

  • You need to know the channel frequency in order to use the manual installation feature. Look up the channel frequency in a newspaper or TV guide.

  • If you do not have the channel frequency at hand, it is recommended to use the automatic installation feature to re-install all the channels.

You are able to individually add new channel(s) by following these steps:

  1. Press the ‘MENU' button on the remote control to access the main menu.
  2. Press the cursor down to select INSTALLATION and press the cursor right to access the installation menu.
  3. Press the cursor down to select CHANNEL INSTALL and press the cursor right to access the channel installation menu.
  4. If the channel lock is activated, the screen will prompt you to enter your pin code. If you have forgotten your pin code, refer to the FAQ (I have forgotten my 4-digit pin code. How can I reset it?).
  5. Press the cursor down to select MANUAL INSTALL and press the cursor right.
  6. Select COLOR SYSTEM and press the cursor right.
  7. Use the cursor up/down to select AUTO and press the 'OK' button to confirm.
  8. Press the cursor down to select SOUND SYSTEM and press the cursor right.
  9. Use the cursor up/down to set to the correct sound system.
  10. If you are not sure of the sound system used in your location, press the cursor up/down to select AUTO and press the 'OK' button to confirm.
  11. Press the cursor down to select SEARCH and press the cursor right.
  12. Enter the 3 digit frequency of the channel you wish to add using the numeric buttons on the remote control.
  13. Press the 'OK' button once the frequency entry is completed.
  14. Press the cursor down to select STORE CUR CHAN and press the cursor right.
  15. Select OK and press the 'OK' to store the frequency.
  16. If you wish to add another channel, repeat steps 6 to 15.
  17. Press the 'BACK' button to exit the menu.

If you do not have the channel frequency at hand, follow these steps to perform the automatic installation:

  2. Press the cursor down to select INSTALLATION and press the cursor right to access the installation menu.
