Safety and environmental instructions
Your receiver has been manufactured to meet the appropriate safety standards, but the
instructions below should be followed to operate it safely.
These instructions must be kept for future reference.
- Before connecting the receiver to the mains, check that the mains supply voltage corresponds
to the voltage printed on the rear of the receiver. If the mains voltage is different, consult the
dealer.
- The receiver does not contain any user-serviceable parts. All maintenance work must be
carried out by qualified personnel.
- If you disconnect the receiver from the mains, make sure to unplug it from the wall socket and
not just from the AC socket at the back of the unit. Children could seriously injure themselves,
as the free end of the cable is still alive.
- Unplug the receiver during lightning storms.
- To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this equipment to rain or moisture.
- The receiver should be placed on a firm surface, and the ventilation openings must not be
covered with items such as newspapers, table clothes, curtains, etc.
- Do not install the receiver near any heat sources such as radiators, stoves or any other
apparatus that produces heat. Protect it from direct sunlight.
- When installing the receiver, ensure there is a gap of approximately 2.5 cm around the receiver
to enable air to circulate freely and prevent overheating.
- Leave accessible the mains connector at the back of the unit in case emergency shutdown is
required.
- Do not place any combustible objects on the receiver (candles, etc.).
- No objects filled with liquids, such as vases, should be placed on the unit. The receiver should
not be exposed to dripping or splashing. Should this happen, disconnect your receiver from the
mains and consult your dealer.
- Make sure that children do not place any foreign objects in any of the openings.
- For cleaning, use a soft, damp (not wet) cloth. Never use any abrasive cloth or aerosol cleaners.

The Easy Recording feature allows you to perform recordings without the necessity to program
your video recorder (VCR or DVD recorder). When you set a recording reminder or timer from
the Channel Banner or Timer Manager, the VCR starts/ends recording at the correct time.
Please note, however, that you may only use the Easy Recording feature provided that your
recorder supports it.
• First of all, consult User Manual of your recorder equipment to check if it supports Easy
Recording. Please note that most Philips VCR/DVD recorders support one of the two Easy
Recording options: either Prepare Record (to be checked first) or Record Link.
• Also, both your TV and VCR shall be equipped with two SCART sockets.
If your equipment satisfies above two conditions, connect your receivers as shown in the
Connection diagram below.
Then, select the System Settings item from the Settings submenu, enable the Easy

8 Troubleshooting guide
Check the guide below for a possible cause of the problem you are experiencing.
The most common problems that arise are related to cable connections. Make sure that your
receiver is properly connected.
Remedy
Nothing lights up on your receiver front
panel.
Check that the mains power cord is correctly connected. Disconnect this cord, and then
reconnect it to ensure it is in place.
Check that power is available at the wall socket.
Your remote control fails to operate your
receiver.
Make sure your receiver is in operating mode.
Make sure that you are pointing your remote control at the receiver front panel.
Check the batteries in your remote control.
Check if your remote control setting and your receiver "Device" setting (1 or 2) are set
accordingly (see 7.2).
There is no sound/picture but the front panel
orange LED is on.
Your receiver is in standby. Press P+ / P- on your remote control to wake up your receiver.
Alternatively, press the + / - button on the receiver front panel.
There is no sound/picture. However, front
panel display is correct.
You are watching ordinary TV via your TV set. Press the TV / STB remote control button to
watch digital TV via your receiver.
Make sure that the SCART connections are correct.
Connections are correct but the TV set is NOT switched to external AV source. Press the TV
/ STB remote control button twice; if the problem is not fixed refer to the user manual of
your TV set.
Main Menu can be displayed but you cannot
select channels.
Your receiver has not been properly configured. Perform the Channel Search procedure
(from Installation submenu). Optionally return to factory setting.
Main Menu and Channel Banner can be
displayed, but there is no reception (black
screen).
Your aerial is not receiving the signal. Check the installation, and the aerial positioning and
connection. Also, check signal quality.
Signal is too weak. Check the installation, and the aerial positioning and connection. This effect
may also be due to severe weather conditions.
The picture is not sharp and text is difficult to
read.
The TV SCART output video format is not set to RGB. Change the TV SCART setting to RGB
from the System Settings item of the Installation submenu.
The TV SCART lead is not connected to the RGB-capable SCART socket of your TV set (refer
to TV set user manual for proper connection).
The SCART lead for TV connection is not RGB-capable (not fully wired). Use the SCART cable
supplied with your receiver for the connection to the TV set.
Intermittent reception ("mosaic" effect or
"frozen" image).
You may have defective cable links. Check all connections and cables.
Poor signal due to the incorrect positioning of the aerial. Reorient the aerial and fasten it
securely.
You have forgotten your PIN code.
You have the possibility to reset your PIN code to its default value (1234). To reset your PIN
code, type in the Master PIN Code (00799700) in quick succession at the level of the Main
Menu. Before you enter the Master PIN code, press the m/INFO key. Please keep this code
secret to prevent your children from using it.
