    Why does my Philips TV automatically switch off after a specific time?

    Published on 2016-12-29

    In order to help you save energy, your TV will automatically switch off if no buttons have been pressed (such as press a remote control button or a control on the TV front panel) after a specified time of watching TV. The auto switch off time can be set in the [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Preferences] > [Auto switch off] menu.

    In order to switch off the [Auto switch off] feature, proceed as follows:

    1. Press the [Home] button on the remote control to access the [Home] menu.
    2. Use the cursor buttons [Up][Down][Left][Right] to select [Setup] and press the [OK] button to confirm.
    3. Select [TV settings] and press the [OK] button.
    4. Press the cursor [Down] to select [Preferences] and press the cursor [Right].
    5. Press the cursor [Down] to select [Auto switch off] and press the cursor [Right].
    6. To switch off the [Auto switch off] feature, press the cursor [Down] to zero minutes and press the [OK] button to confirm.
    7. Press the [Back] button to exit the menu.

    If your TV still switches off randomly

    • Make sure that your TV has the latest software installed
