Troubleshooting

How to improve the sound quality of my Philips TV?

In order to improve the sound quality, make sure that you observe the following guidelines:

  • Check the quality of the incoming signal on the TV with a different Source like DVD or VCR
  • Splitting the signal will make it considerably weaker. If you use an antenna cable splitter, connect the antenna directly to the TV without the splitter.
  • 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

Check whether the sound quality has improved. If not:

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

Reinstall the channels:

Alternatively, you can set your personal sound preference by following these steps:

  1. Use the cursor buttons [Up][Down][Left][Right] to select [Setup] and press the [OK] button to confirm
