    Exclamation Apple TV remote switches off Philips PFL8008 / TV switches itself on

    Hi all,

    I own a Philips PFL8008 TV. After the motherboard was replaced the TV has functioned OK for a number of months, but recently the weirdness is starting again:

    - For some reason as of today any button on my Apple TV remote switches OFF the Philips TV. This is a major annoyance as it basically renders my complete Apple TV useless.
    - The Philips TV sometimes randomly switches itself ON for no apparent reason. Doesn't happen that often (yet), but is quite weird and generally annoying.

    Does anyone experience the same issues or have any advice? Should I get the motherboard replaced for the second time?

    Many thanks for your help!

    Bas.

    Hi,

    check, if you have installed firmware 173.52 on your TV (see support website).

    Hi,

    Did you solve this problem? Same problem here. 46PFL8008 responds to any remote. If any other remote is used the tv switches to standby. Hope anybody can help, it's driving me crazy. At this moment i cannot use any other remote when watching tv..

    BTW, lates software is used. 173.52 . Problems started after the update to this software version.

    TIA
    Peter

    Hi Peter,

    Please try to remove the TV power plug for 2 minutes.
