4.1
Tips on connections
Connectivity guide
DVI to HDMI
Always connect a device to the TV with the highest quality
connection available. Also, use good quality cables to ensure a
good transfer of picture and sound.
Use a DVI to HDMI adapter if your device only has a DVI
connection. Use one of the HDMI connections and add an
Audio L/R cable (mini-jack 3.5mm) to AUDIO IN for sound, on
the back of the TV.
If you need help to connect several devices to the TV, you can
visit the Philips TV connectivity guide. The guide offers
information on how to connect and which cables to use.
Copy protection
DVI and HDMI cables support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital
Content Protection). HDCP is a copy protection signal that
prevents copying content from a DVD disc or Blu-ray Disc. Also
referred to as DRM (Digital Rights Management).
Go to www.connectivityguide.philips.com
Antenna
If you have a Set-top box (a digital receiver) or Recorder,
connect the antenna cables to run the antenna signal through
the Set-top box and/or Recorder first before it enters the TV. In
this way, the antenna and the Set-top box can send possible
additional channels to the Recorder to record.
HDMI ARC
All of the HDMI connections on the TV have HDMI ARC
(Audio Return Channel).
If the device, typically a Home Theatre Sysytem (HTS), also has
the HDMI ARC connection, connect it to any of the HDMI
connections on this TV. With the HDMI ARC connection, you
do not need to connect the extra audio cable that sends the
sound of the TV picture to the HTS. The HDMI ARC
connection combines both signals.
You can use any HDMI connection on this TV to connect the
HTS but ARC is only available for 1 device/connection at a time.
In case you prefer to switch off ARC on the HDMI connections,
press î‚¥ and select Setup and press OK.
Select TV settings > Sound > Advanced > HDMI ARC.
CVBS - Audio L R
HDMI
CVBS - Composite Video is a high quality connection. The CVBS
connection can be used for High Definition (HD) TV signals.
Next to the CVBS signal adds the Audio Left and Right signals
for sound.
HDMI CEC
An HDMI connection has the best picture and sound quality.
One HDMI cable combines video and audio signals. Use an
HDMI cable for High Definition (HD) or Ultra HD (UHD) TV
signals. For best signal quality transfer, use a High speed HDMI
cable and do not use an HDMI cable longer than 5 m.
Y shares the same jack with CVBS.
Component and Composite share audio jacks.
12
EasyLink setup
The TV comes with EasyLink switched on. Make sure that all
HDMI CEC settings are properly set up on the connected
EasyLink devices. EasyLink might not work with devices from
other brands.
Only for TVs with component/composite connectors.
Audio Out - Optical
HDMI CEC on other brands
Audio Out - Optical is a high quality sound connection. This
optical connection can carry 5.1 audio channels. If your device,
typically a Home Theatre System (HTS), has no HDMI ARC
connection, you can use this connection with the Audio In Optical connection on the HTS. The Audio Out - Optical
connection sends the sound from the TV to the HTS.
The HDMI CEC functionality has different names on different
brands. Some examples are: Anynet, Aquos Link, Bravia Theatre
Sync, Kuro Link, Simplink and Viera Link. Not all brands are fully
compatible with EasyLink.
Example HDMI CEC branding names are property of their
respective owners.
Operate devices
To operate a device connected to HDMI and set up with
EasyLink, select the device - or its activity - in the list of TV
connections. Press  SOURCES, select a device connected to
an HDMI connection and press OK.
You can set the type of the audio out signal to fit the audio
capabilities of your Home Theatre System.
For more information, press  Keywords and look up Audio
Out settings.
Once the device is selected, the TV remote control can control
the device. However  and  OPTIONS keys and some other
TV keys are not forwarded to the device.

select the key in the Options menu.
Press  OPTIONS and select Controls in the menu bar. On

4.2
EasyLink HDMI CEC
EasyLink
Note: Only devices that support EasyLink remote control
function will respond to the TV remote control.
With EasyLink you can operate a connected device with the TV
remote control. EasyLink uses HDMI CEC (Consumer
Electronics Control) to communicate with the connected
devices. Devices must support HDMI CEC and must be
connected with an HDMI connection.

Picture
The TV does not switch on
No picture / distorted picture
Disconnect the power cable from the power outlet.
Wait for one minute then reconnect it.
Make sure that the power cable is securely connected.
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.
Creaking sound at startup or switch off
When you are turning the TV on, off or to standby, you hear a
creaking sound from the TV chassis. 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.
Sound but no picture
Make sure that the picture settings are set correctly.
TV does not respond to the remote control
Poor antenna reception
The TV requires some time to start up. During this time, the TV
does not respond to the remote control or TV controls. This is
normal behaviour.
If the TV continues to be unresponsive to the remote control,
you can check if the remote control is working by means of a
mobile phone camera. Put the phone in camera mode and point
the remote control to the camera lens. If you press any key on
the remote control and you notice the infra red LED flicker
through the camera, the remote control is working. The TV
needs to be checked.
If you do not notice the flickering, the remote control might be
broken or its batteries are low.
This method of checking the remote control is not possible with
remote controls which are wirelessly paired with the TV.
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.
Poor picture from a device
Make sure that the device is connected properly.
Make sure that the picture settings are set correctly.
The TV goes back to standby after showing the Philips startup

Safety and care
26.1
Safety
Important
Risk of damage to the TV !
Read and understand all safety instructions before you use the
TV. If damage is caused by failure to follow instructions, the
warranty does not apply.
Before you connect the TV to the power outlet, ensure that the
power voltage matches the value printed on the back of the TV.
Never connect the TV to the power outlet if the voltage is
different.
Secure the TV from falling over
Always use the supplied wall bracket to secure the TV from
falling over. Mount the bracket and secure the TV onto the
bracket, even if you put the TV on the floor.
Risk of injury to children
Follow these precautions to prevent the TV from toppling over
and causing injury to children:
You can find the mounting instructions in the Quick Start Guide
that came with the TV. In case you lost this guide, you can
download the guide from www.philips.com
Use the product type number of the TV to look for the Quick
Start Guide to download.
Never place the TV on a surface covered by a cloth or
other material that can be pulled away.
Ensure that no part of the TV hangs over the edge of the
mounting surface.
Never place the TV on tall furniture, such as a bookcase,
without anchoring both the furniture and TV to the wall
or a suitable support.
Teach children about the dangers of climbing on
furniture to reach the TV.
Risk of electric shock or fire
Never expose the TV to rain or water. Never place
liquid containers, such as vases, near the TV.
If liquids are spilt on or into the TV, disconnect the TV
from the power outlet immediately.
Contact Philips TV Consumer Care to have the TV
checked before use.
Never expose the TV, remote control or batteries to
excessive heat. Never place them near burning candles,
naked flames or other heat sources, including direct
sunlight.
Never insert objects into the ventilation slots or other
openings on the TV.
Never place heavy objects on the power cord.
Avoid force coming onto power plugs. Loose power
plugs can cause arcing or fire. Ensure that no strain is
exerted on the power cord when you swivel the TV
screen.
To disconnect the TV from the mains power, the power
plug of the TV must be disconnected. When
disconnecting the power, always pull the power plug,
never the cord. Ensure that you have full access to the
power plug, power cord and outlet socket at all times.
Risk of swallowing batteries !
The remote control may contain coin-type batteries which can
easily be swallowed by small children. Keep these batteries out
of reach of children at all times.
Risk of overheating
Never install the TV in a confined space. Always leave a space of
at least 10 cm or 4 inches around the TV for ventilation. Ensure
curtains or other objects never cover the ventilation slots on the
TV.
Lightning storms
Disconnect the TV from the power outlet and antenna before
lightning storms.
During lightning storms, never touch any part of the TV, power
cord or antenna cable.
Risk of injury or damage to the TV

Avoid using earphones or headphones at high volumes or for
prolonged periods of time.
81
Low temperatures
If the TV is transported in temperatures below 5°C or 41°F,
unpack the TV and wait until the TV temperature reaches room
temperature before connecting the TV to the power outlet.
Humidity
In rare occasions, depending on temperature and humidity,
minor condensation can occur on the inside of the TV glass
front (on some models). To prevent this, do not expose the TV
to direct sunlight, heat or extreme humidity. If condensation
occurs, it will disappear spontaneously while the TV is playing for
a few hours.
The condensation moisture will not harm the TV or cause
malfunction.
26.2
Screen care
Never touch, push, rub or strike the screen with any
object.
Unplug the TV before cleaning.
Clean the TV and frame with a soft damp cloth and wipe
gently. Avoid touching the Ambilight LEDs on the
backside of the TV. Never use substances such as
alcohol, chemicals or household cleaners on the TV.
To avoid deformations and colour fading, wipe off water
drops as quickly as possible.
Avoid stationary images as much as possible. Stationary
images are images that remain onscreen for extended
periods of time. Stationary images include onscreen
menus, black bars, time displays, etc. If you must use
stationary images, reduce screen contrast and brightness
to avoid screen damage.
