32PFL3507H/12 multiple problems
Yesterday i received my 32PFL3507H/12 which i was so excited about, i even bought as well the "Philips Wi-Fi USB Adapter PTA01" to get the full experience as per what the FAQ of the "Media Connect" says.
This is a 2012 TV, therefor, there was not much reviews bout it online ! but i bought it !
first when I opened the TV box and started it for the first time, the TV freezes during the "Automatic Channels Installation" after finding 73 digital channels, the TV was not responding to the Remote or the control buttons on the back of the TV, I had to unplug it and try again to face the same
problem 8 times (completely freezing when finding 73 channels), then i decided to skip the "Automatic Channels Installation" and proceed with the setup, which completed with no problems, even i directly connected the PTA01/00 adapter during the setup and connected to the network with
Once the setup finished i tried again the "Automatic Channel Installation" with no luck so i tried to do a manual channel installation via the "Digital: Reception test", that worked for me and i installed 5 channels manually..
Once i had the 5 channels installed, i tried the "Automatic Channel Search" again and it freezes after finding 68 channels ! (i already had 5 channels installed manually from before, so 5 + 68 = 73) ! i guess this TV doesn't like that number !
Then I decided to go for a firmware upgrade and try again, i installed the latest firmware (T921E_2.06) and tried again, nothing changed :(
so, i ended up installing the channels manually (only the ones i found their frequency online), so, now i only have a part of the TV channels offered in my location !
Then came the big surprise of finding out that the TV has no special features that allows it to be classified as a "Smart TV"!
i doubled checked the box to see if it has the "Smart TV" logo (which is there)! then i double checked the model number because i thought i had the wrong TV delivered!
The correct Model number and the "Smart TV" logo on the box made me convinced that this was a configuration mistake from my side (since this TV seems to like getting things done the hard way)! that's when i came to this forum searching for tutorials/advice to make the "Net TV" icon appear as well as the features that allows installing Apps ! :(
BUT unfortunately i found this thread:
which was started by another disappointed buyer and its not really clear to where the thread ended :(
Yet there is more !
Yesterday before sleeping frustrated by the TV, i put on the sleep timer, which worked since the TV was off when i woke up, However, when pressing the power button to switch it on, it didn't switch on ! i tried both power buttons (the one on the remote and the one on the back of the TV) and it didn't work while each time i tried, the "remote receiver light" blinked normally whenever there is a button pressed, i ended up unplugging the TV and plugging it in order to make it turn on!
Anyways, i switched off the TV and left to work and when i came back, i faced the same issue AGAIN, The TV didn't turn ON when i tried to turn it on from the remote or from the button on the back ! So, AGAIN i had to unplug it and plug it !?~!
In order to confirm this problem, I tried to reproduce it, so i switched off the tv, waited for an hour or so, tried to switch it on, nothing happens when pressing the Power button besides a blink from the "remote receiver light" !! Then i tried with the sleep timer and i got the same results again..
The only bright side is that i was about to buy 2 of this set (the tv + the PTA01 adapter) But my wife convinced me at the last minute to buy only one
and see if we like it first..
