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 [Auto Mode] button on the remote control to set your TV to a predefined sound mode settings that will give you the best sound quality.

Alternatively, follow these steps to select the settings that suit your preferences:

  1. Press the [Menu] button on the remote control to display the main Menu
  2. Select [TV settings] and press the cursor [Right] to display the TV settings Menu

  1. Check the connection with the audio system
  2. Switch the audio system to the correct Source
