the supplied stand. Secure the stand to
the TV tightly. Place the TV on a flat,
level surface that can support the
combined weight of the TV and the
stand.

When wall mounting the TV, use only a
wall mount that can support the weight
of the TV. Secure the wall mount to a
wall that can support the combined
weight of the TV and wall mount. TP
Vision Netherlands B.V. bears no
responsibility for improper wall
mounting that result in accident, injury
or damage.

headache or disorientation, we
recommend not watching 3D for
extended periods of time. If you
experience any discomfort, stop
watching 3D and do not immediately
engage in any potentially hazardous
activity (for example driving a car) until
your symptoms have disappeared. If
symptoms persist, do not resume
watching 3D without consulting a
medical professional first.
Parents should monitor their children
during 3D viewing and ensure they do
not experience any discomfort as
mentioned above. Watching 3D is not
recommended for children under six
years of age as their visual system is not
fully developed yet.

2.4 GHz frequency spectrum as common
household devices, such as Dect phones,
microwave ovens or Bluetooth devices,
which can cause WiFi interference. Move
these devices away from the TV.

To reduce network traffic, switch off
unused network equipment in the
home network.

Reception quality depends on the
location of the wireless router and your
local Internet service provider.

When playing video over your wireless
home network, we recommend that

General issues
The TV does not switch on:

Disconnect the power cable from the
power outlet. Wait for one minute
then reconnect it.

Make sure that the power cable is
securely connected.
The TV does not respond to remote
control or front controls when switched
on:
The TV requires some time to start up.
During this time, the TV does not respond
to the remote control or front controls. This
is normal behaviour.
When you are turning the TV on, off or to
standby, you hear a creaking sound from
the TV chassis:
No action is required. The creaking sound is
due to the normal expansion and
contraction of the TV as it cools and warms
up. This does not affect performance.
When the TV is in standby, a startup splash
screen is displayed, then returns to standby
mode:
This is normal behaviour. When the TV is
disconnected and reconnected to the power
supply, the startup screen is displayed at the
next startup.
To switch on the TV from standby, press
on the remote control or press any key on
the TV.
The standby light on the TV blinks red:
Disconnect the power cable from the power
outlet. Wait until the TV cools down before
you reconnect the power cable. If the
blinking reoccurs, contact Philips Consumer
Care.
You forgot the 4-digit code to unlock the
channel blocking feature (child lock):
Enter ‘8888’.
The TV or Smart TV menu is in the wrong
language:
Change the menu to your preferred
language. See Set up your TV > Language
settings > Menu language (Page 41).
You want to upgrade your TV software:
Visit www.philips.com/support and
download the latest software package for
your TV. Software installation instructions
and release notes indicating what's been
updated are also available at the site. Full
instructions on how to upgrade your TV
software are also available at Set up your TV
> Update software.
Channel issues
You want to install TV channels:
See Set up your TV > Channel settings
(Page 37) for instructions on installing
analogue or digital channels. If you want to
install satellite TV channels, see Set up your
TV > Satellite settings (Page 40).
No digital channels were found during the
installation:

Make sure that the TV supports DVB-T,
DVB-C or DVB-S in your country.

Make sure that all cables are properly
connected and that the correct
network is selected.
Previously installed channels do not appear
in the channel list:
Make sure that the correct channel list is
selected.

6 Troubleshooting
Picture issues
The TV is on, but there is no picture or the
picture is distorted:

Make sure that the antenna is properly
connected to the TV.

Make sure that the correct device is
selected as the display source.

Make sure that the external device or
source is properly connected.
There is sound but no picture:
Make sure that the picture settings are set
correctly.
There is poor TV reception from an
antenna connection:

Make sure that the antenna is properly
connected to the TV.

Loud speakers, unearthed audio
devices, neon lights, high buildings and
other large objects can influence
reception quality. If possible, try to
improve the reception quality by
changing the antenna direction or
moving devices away from the TV.

If reception on only one channel is
poor, fine-tune this channel.
There is poor picture quality from
connected devices:

Make sure that the devices are
connected properly.

Make sure that the picture settings are
set correctly.
The TV did not save your picture settings:
Make sure that the TV location is set to
[Home]. You can change and save settings in
this mode.
The picture does not fit the screen; it is
too big or too small:
Try a different picture format.
The picture format keeps changing with
different channels:
Try applying specific picture format instead
of [Auto zoom].
The picture position is incorrect:
Picture signals from some devices may not fit
the screen correctly. Check the signal output
of the device.
EN
60
The picture from broadcasts is scrambled:
You may need a Conditional Access Module
to access content. Check with your service
operator.
An "e-sticker" banner displaying
information appears on the TV display:
The TV is in [Shop] mode. To remove the
e-sticker, set the TV to [Home] mode, then
restart the TV. See Set up your TV > Other
settings > Location (Page 43).
The computer display on the TV is not
stable:

Make sure that your PC uses the
supported resolution and refresh rate.
See Product specifications > Display
resolutions (Page 63).

Change the TV picture format to
[Unscaled].
Connection issues
There is a picture but sound quality is
poor:
If no audio signal is detected, the TV
automatically switches the audio output off
— this does not indicate malfunction.

Make sure that all cables are properly
connected.

Make sure that the volume is not
muted or set to zero.

Make sure that the TV speaker setting
is selected. Press ADJUST, select
[Speakers], then select [TV].

Make sure that the TV audio output is
connected to the audio input on the
HDMI-CEC enabled or EasyLink
compliant home theatre device. Sound
should be heard from the home theatre
speakers.

Some devices may require you to
manually enable HDMI audio output. If
HDMI audio is already enabled but you
still cannot hear audio, try changing the
digital audio format of the device to
PCM ('Pulse Code Modulation'). Refer
to the documentation accompanying
your device for instructions.
There is a picture but the sound quality is
poor:
Make sure that the sound settings are
correctly set.
There is a picture but sound comes from
one speaker only:
Make sure that sound balance is set to the
centre.
There are problems with HDMI devices:

Note that HDCP (High-bandwidth
Digital Content Protection) support can
delay the time taken for a TV to display
content from an HDMI device.

If the TV does not recognise the HDMI
device and no picture is displayed,
switch the source from one device to
another and back again.

If there are intermittent sound
disruptions, make sure that output
settings from the HDMI device are
correct.

If you use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter or
HDMI-to-DVI cable, make sure that an
additional audio cable is connected to
AUDIO IN - Y/Pb/Pr or AUDIO IN DVI/VGA (mini-jack only).
You cannot use EasyLink features:
Make sure that your HDMI devices are
HDMI-CEC compatible. EasyLink features
only work with devices that are HDMI-CEC
compatible.
If an HDMI-CEC compliant audio device is
connected to the TV and the TV does not
display any mute or volume icon when the
volume is muted, increased or decreased:
When a HDMI-CEC audio device is
connected this behaviour is normal.
USB device content is not displayed:

Make sure that the USB storage device
is set to Mass Storage Class compliant,
as described in the storage device's
documentation.

Make sure that the USB storage device
is compatible with the TV.

Make sure that the audio and picture
file formats are supported by the TV.
Audio and picture files on your USB
storage device do not play or display
smoothly:
The transfer performance of the USB
storage device may limit the data transfer
rate to the TV which causes poor playback.
