    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.

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

    1. Press the [Home] button on the remote control to access the [Home] menu

    If the TV is connected to the audio system:

    1. Check the connection with the audio system
    2. Switch the audio system to the correct source
    3. Check the volume level of audio system
    4. Change the audio setting on the audio system to match your personal taste

    Note: We do not recommend connecting passive speakers to the TV.
