Philips 32PF7521 DTV My tv has stopped working and I cannot reset it to factory default setting. An F appeared in the top right corner last night, and today I could not get DTV to work, though analogue and the ext 1 and ext2 sources did work. I tried to reset to factory settings by pressing menu for 5 seconds in order to reprogramme the DTV channels and now nothing works. The TV will switch on in DTV mode the screen turns blue for a matter of seconds and then switches to black. It will not switch to anologue or ext1 or ext 2. What can I do?

SOURCE: 26PF5521D wont show menu after reseting factory defaults

Switch the TV to analogue mode (if possible)

Press and hold the "MENU" button on the side of the TV. The settings menu should appear. Continue to hold the menu button until this menu disappears. (If you let go before the menu disappears, start again)

The TV should now go blank for up to 2 minutes, and then revert to factory settings and intitial installation screen.

Procede as per original installation.

SOURCE: I have a samsung 32"

In the menu you should find an option to program the channels. Occasionally you have to reprogram them as I do on my own samsung and the ones I repair.

This is an internal weakness of the video source selection circuitry and perhaps your best bet would be to seek service/replacement from the point of purchase/dealer. Technically, it is "signal bleedover" or "video splatter" and has to do with shielding/grounding but again internally. Best temporary fix is to power off the video source plugged into EXT2. Alternately, you can try switching them around, make the DVD EXT2 and the Satellite EXT1.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

After switching off and on last night the volume and mute on stopped responding on Humax remote. IT is PVR9150T and remote RT531B. TV Remote works fine with volume. Humax remote works fine on all exce

Note that this type of device is designed to be left on at all times, so should not be switched off each night. I suspect that it has some slight corruption in the user-settings, so a factory reset may be required.

Need information on a philips t.v. model 32PT6441/37

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.

Key lock on

Your Dell tV can be unlocked by reseting it to factory reset.
To reset it to factory reset do the folloing.

Enter the TV main Menu.
Select Factory Reset to return the TV Menu settings to the factory default values

NOTE: Before you proceed with the Factory Reset, enter a four-digit access code. The Factory Reset and
Parental Control always share the same access code. The default Parental Control code is 3355
NOTE: Parental Control setting can be reset by doing factory reset

If you ar unable to do this proceedings, do the unlock method used for Philips, and your TVs kit is of Philips.

Philips sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for Philip sets is 0711, although it may say "Incorrect code" the first time to trick you. If "Incorrect code" is displayed, simply enter 0711 again. To use it hit the MENU key to get to the menus. Go up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK, depending on the model, and push the "right arrow" key on the remote. Enter the override code, and enter it a second time if it says it is incorrect.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu, go to BLOCK, and push the "right arrow" key. Go to BLOCKING OPTIONS and press the "right arrow" key. Go to MASTER DISABLE and press the "right arrow" key so that it says "MASTER DISABLE ON". The v-chip is now reset.

Yellow Line at the Top of Screen

Try doing a system reset. Not sure it that's the term they use but that option basically resets the tv to factory default settings. It's in the menu somewhere. I've done the reset twice already for a similar problem. Solved it each time.

'F' displaying on screen and remote not responding.

Excavated with Google from Philips website: " When a letter F appears on the right hand corner of the screen it means the television is in factory mode. To exit from factory mode, press the 'VOLUME -' and ?CHANNEL -? buttons on the TV set simultaneous for 5 seconds. " Hope this helps Michael Junge
