-Could you explain your situation a little more?


Exactly What model TV do you Have? Are you also in need of a remote?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.



The model of tv that l have is a Phillips 29GX1990/75. I have lost the remote and need to retune all the tv channels. I have replaced the external tv antenna hence that's why l need to retunr the tv channels.


On the top of the tv there are 5 buttons, install, volume +, volume -, channel up and channel down. If l press the install button, the following options appear, auto tune, manual, fine, swap etc.. I select the auto tune button, however l have no select button to start the auto tuning.


Need your help please.

When you select Auto tune, USUALLY one of the Other 4 buttons will act as the select button.

On mine, it is the ch up.


But I have found that EACH of these buttons can be used on different model and brand TV's


There can only be 5 choices. I fone does not work, then you just do it again until One does work.


ALSO, I have found remotes for you. I don't know exactly where you live, but assumed it was UK because of TV model.

Any other ideas please.


Look forward to your respronse.
