    How to improve the picture quality of Philips TV?

    Updated on 2019-09-10

    First verify the following: ( only valide for analog signals )

    1) Verify the incoming signal.

    • Watching a TV channel press 1, 2, 3, 6, 5, 4 on the remote control of the TV. The Customer Service Menu (CSM) appears on the screen.
    • Go to page 2 with the cursor buttons. Verify item 15: NOISE FIGURE. If the value stated here is under 50 it means the incoming signal is fine. Go to point 4.

    2) 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.

    3) Connect a signal amplifier if the noise figure value is still over 50.

    4) Verify your cables and cable-connections.

    • Make all your cables as short as possible
    • Use only fully screened scart cables
    • Use good antenna-cable
    • Connect the plugs well into their sockets

    Verify whether the picture quality has improved. If not:
