Hi
After reading all the reviews. Just try a step to release the static.

When you unplug the power. Just Press and hold the power button on the LCD for 30 seconds.
Pug it in and try again.

I hate to disagree with you ID, but a stuck button CAN cause this type of behavior. Based upon the description here though, I'd suspect a power supply problem. Either the 5V supply is being drawn low (less than 4.3V) or there is a lot of ripple on the line which can be interpreted as information. In any case, this is not a problem that a novice will be able to trace. Also, schematics are not generally available for these sets. I have worked on some of these sets in the past with mixed results. You can often determine the problem area based upon the parts, but it is time consuming and not likely to happen at a service shop. They are more likely to replace the board.

You may have to bite the bullet and either sp[end the $700 for the replacement board or replace the set.

Since this is a digital LCD TV, there is no question of any button being "stuck". It is most likely an issue with the circuitry. You can try a hard reset first, which is the basic step. Unplug everything, including cables and power supply, wait about 1/2 hour and replug everything. Should the hard reset work, well and good. If not, you will have to take the TV in for servicing. I do not recommend a DIY if you have no prior experience, as there are very sensitive parts within.

However, if you would like to try a DIY, you will first need to get your hands on a service manual. I recommend the following site:
http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
They also help you procure the needed parts and provide free diagnostics and help while you repair the set online (provided you buy the manual from them, of course)

Hope that helps! If there is anything further I can assist you with, please let me know. If you are satisfied with my response, kindly take a moment to "ACCEPT" my solution.

Cheers!

Yes the board may be the issue, there are companies who sell parts but first you will need to know what failed, that is near to impossible without proper test equipment and a trouble shooting manual, I would suggest u leave this to a repair shop

Need code for apex tv/dvd combo to program remote


http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/apex_help.shtml

To program the Apex DVD player on your Radio Shack or One For All remote, there are several steps involved. Basically you will be using the TV device code 0030 and re-mapping all the buttons. There's several steps to get wrong so I will include lots of error checking so that if you make a mistake you will know where you went wrong. Before you start, you should print off the advanced codes.PLEASE NOTE:This will only work for the AD600A model. There isn't a code in any of the current OFA/RS remotes for the newer models (ie, AD500A, AD660A, AD703A, AD800A, etc)
1. Confirm that you have TV code 0030 on your remote.
(Every remote has this code, I am including this step just for your piece of mind, by all means skip it and come back to it if you have problems).
a. Turn on your DVD player and have is displaying on the TV.
b. Press the TV button.
c. Press and hold the SETUP button (the green P button on R/S remotes), wait for two flashes.
d. Type 0030 and wait for two flashes.
e. Press the POWER button, you should see the VOLUME indicator display on the TV screen.
You have now confirmed that you have the TV code 0030.
2. Re-assign the DVD button.
(On the Cinema 7 remote you will probably want to use the DVD button, on the R/S remotes you might want to chose the AUX2 button. In this example when I refer to the DVD button, I am referring to whichever device key you have selected to control your DVD player).

a. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for the two flashes.
b. Type 992, wait for the two flashes.
c. Press the TV button, followed by the DVD (or AUX2) button. Two flashes.
You have now re-assigned your DVD button to be a TV button, this is so we can enter the TV device code.
3. Assign the TV/0030 code.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 0030 and wait for two flashes.
e. Press the POWER button, you should see the VOLUME indicator display on the TV screen.
You have programmed the DVD button to TV code 0030.
4. Program the function buttons.
(You will have to program every button that you intend to use. Don't waste memory by coding buttons that you will rarely, if ever, actually use. If you don't think you will use the numeric keys, for example, don't program them. If you intend to use the volume controls from your TV or amplifier, don't program the volume controls).
I will walk you though setting the POWER button.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 994, wait for the two flashes.
d. Press and release the SETUP button. (Don't hold it this time).
e. Type 052 (this is the code for POWER).
f. Press the POWER button, wait for the two flashes.
g. Press the POWER button, your DVD player should turn off.
You have now programmed the POWER button. Repeat the steps above for all the buttons that you want to program.
5. Resetting the DVD device.
In order for "volume punch through" to work, you will need to reset the DVD device button to be a DVD button again. This is only an issue for the Cinema 7, because "volume punch through" only works on the original VCR and CBL buttons on the 15-1994, and even then it will only work with the TV's volume).

a. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for the two flashes.
b. Type 992, wait for the two flashes.
c. Press the DVD button twice. Two flashes.
You have now reset the DVD button.
6. Setting up the volume controls.
You have several choices with the volume controls. You can program them with the APEX codes, which will invoke the DVD players volume controls, you can use "volume punch through", or you can manually set the volume controls to operate the device of your choice. In this example I will assume that you want to use your stereo equipments volume controls and that the stereo is programmed to the CD device button. Please replace the CD button with the TV button in this example if you want to use your TV's volume.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 994, wait for the two flashes.
d. Press the CD button, followed by two presses of the VOL UP button.
e. Wait for two flashes.
You have now programmed the DVD's volume up button to control the CD's volume up function. Repeat these steps for the volume down and mute buttons.
7. Setting up a Loophole Menu macro button.
If you have the version of the Apex that has the "Loopholes Menu", then you might want to set up a button to take you right there. It saves having to remember the secret steps. In this example I am going to put the macro on the "S4" button, but you can put it on any button you like, just remember that it will be in effect under all devices.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 995, wait for the two flashes.
d. Press the S4 button (or the button of your choice).
e. Press the following buttons in this order (the button names in paranthesis are the buttons that I suggested these Apex functions be assigned to):
STOP, STOP, SETUP (Program), STEP (Move), PREV TRK (CH Down), NEXT TRK (CH Up)
f. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
It is important to hold the SETUP key until you see the two flashes in the last step. If you release it too soon, the remote will assume that you want the SETUP button to be part of the macro, which will cause some un-expected results when you try using the macro.
Hopefully you have now successfully programmed your remote to handle your Apex DVD player, now you can enjoy movies from all over the world. if you haven't already visited the un-official Apex head quarters, here's the address: www.nerd-out.com/apex.

Have a BA TVee 25 Soundbar. Only able to program Volume Up on my remote. Cannot program Volume Down or Mute. Nothing happens except to turn the Soundbar off and on. Don't tell me to follow...


I had this same problem and it was due to their instructions which do not adequately explain the setup procedure.

On my own, I was successful in programming volume up but that was all. I assumed that for volume down I would hold the power button and the VOLUME DOWN button and wait for the flashing light just as I had for volume up. Problem is, you never get a flashing light.

Today, I spoke with a rep from Boston Acoustics who patiently explained that step one of the instructions has to be done the same way each time as it is the step that puts the soundbar into programming mode.

It is only at step 2 that things change.

The solution is to hold the power button and the Volume Up button every time in order to get the system into programming mode. Once the light is flashing, in order to program Volume Down, you then hold the Volume Down button until the light goes solid. Once the light goes solid, then press the volume down button on your remote 4 times slowly. Works like a charm.

Works the same way to program the mute button. Follow step one to get the unit in programming mode. Once the light is flashing, hold down only the mute button until the light goes solid. When the light goes solid, press the mute button slowly 4 times.


OBTW, this was programmed with a Logitech Harmony 650 remote unit.

I have a Bosch dishwasher model # shx4ap05uc/06 and I want to silence the alarm for when it is done. It goes off every 10 minutes until you open the door


Hi,

Yes, you can switch the cycle completion signal off (or raise/lower the volume)

1. Switch the dishwasher off using the ON/OFF button
2. Open the door
3. Switch the dishwasher on again. (One of the wash cycle LEDs will flash.)
4. Hold the > button in. Continue holding it and press and release the Start/Reset button once, then release the > button.

"Clean" and one other LED should now be flashing. This indicates that the dishwasher is in the options/settings mode. If they are not flashing, start over at step 1.

5. Press > repeatedly, until the LEDs for "Clean", "Sanitized" and "Rinse Agent" are all flashing.
6. Press repeatedly until none of the LEDs are flashing.

The number of flashing LEDs indicate the volume setting . . .

0 = Silent
1 = Volume level 1
2 = Volume level 2
3 = Volume level 3

7. Press the Start/Reset button once to save the setting and exit the options mode
8. Close the door
9. Switch the dishwasher off.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Volumne on Akai LCT3285TA


Often a signal might experience a super-quick "drop" in signal strength, and the display is automatically adjusting the now weaker audio signal to "mono" (temporary, as for best quality). But the dropout is usually so brief you will then see the "stronger" signal restored [full strength], and now the audio is "stereo".

It's like a "bump" or "disturbance" that occasionally affects the cable/satellite/OTA (antennae) signal being fed into the TV, and your display's attempts to compensate for the weaker signal [going to mono, then back to stereo once back to full strength].
Connecting it to your cable directly (bypassing the box) or an antenna would give you a true over-the-air signal, which would be proper MTS and would not give you any more pop ups.
