I just got a Philips TV but it is locked in Hotel TV mode. Anyone know to get out of the hotel mode?

Rock Stars usually throw them in the pool. That will definitely cancel any mode it is locked in.

addendum:
Try this: turn to channel 38, and hold channel+ and volume- for 3 seconds
Or this: To deactivate "Hotel Mode": Select program 38 then press "CONTROL +" & "STORE" keys simultaneously.

What's the Philips model number??

You should still be able to manually tune in 38 (even if it doesn't exist)...

Did it fall off the back of a truck ? lol
Do you have the remote ? If it's not the factory remote for that tv you might have a hard time getting it off hotel mode .

No, I found it in the pool!

No, I don't have the remote. I think Philips have some special remote for configure the hotel mode. But I don't know the codes for that remote.

Remote Central does not allow any illegal activities to be discussed on this web site. Please stop now. Just kidding. It must have been one heck of a party. Just a little souvenier for old time sake. We get the idea. hehehe

1.)Go back to the hotel.
2.)Check in.
3.)Try taking THEIR TV out of "hotel mode".
4.)If successful, take out your universal remote and feed it the necessary codes.
5.)Leave the maid a nice tip - It's the least you can do; you're watching their TV at home.
6.)Feed ANOTHER remote the codes in case you lose power to the memory in one.

If that doesn't work, you're already in Sweden. That's closer to the home of Philips than most of us. You should be able to get help. What about a TV repair shop?

That wont work because what they do is put a crappy universal remote (that can't change modes)in the rooms to use and they keep the factory remote (which will change it)
Your best bet is to figure out the tv model # and get the right remote or try codes from here.

Or break into the hotel office and nab the remote lol
(don't do the crime if you can't do the time) don't do it .

haav I wanna go party with you I need some new equipment to fall into my hands . lol

Good catch Kabster, guess that's why I've never absconded with a hotel TV.
