Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Service Remote Hi. I was going through the service menu on my 44sz8r tv and changed an option by accident and now my remote control doesn't work. The option said something like "CHREM=0" and changed it to "CHREM=1" then the menu came off before I could change it back. As I needed the remote to get into the menu in the first place, i'm just wondering if is there a way to reset the service settings or get in to the menu WITHOUT the remote? or have I had it. I've just read your post about the service remote you got and was wondering if it connects to the back of the set via a Pc serial cable or if it just works by itself. My set is the LG 44SZ8R. Hope you can help. Thanks.

    Hi.

    I knew that you wasn't a "problem solver" but i figured you might be able to help. thanks for the reply anyway.

    I've just got a reply back from lg UK and they too are saying that I need to purchase a new remote from a partner company. I'll probably find that it's the same remote that you had to buy.

    Are you saying that because it hasn't got instructions you still can't get into the service menu? i hope not.

    Thanks again.

    Hi.

    I'm not an engineer but i managed to reset my lg 44sz8r lamp
    timer by pressing (and hold) MENU on the set & then press and hold
    MUTE on the remote.

    The lamp reset menu should pop up allowing you to choose reset.

    Good Luck.

    I can't get my light timer to reset. I press and hold menu on the TV and press and hold mute on the remote. I can't get the time reset to show. How long do you have to hold down the button and do you have to have a special remot to do this. I have a LG RU-44sz51d TV

Sorry, I'm not a problem solver. I had ask a question myself several month's ago that went unanswered. My tv is a LG RU44SZ63D. Through my own diligence I discovered that the special set-up remote for accessing the service menu is a 105-201M. I have no idea how many different model tv's this remote works on. I purchased the remote from www.newremotecontrols.com. It "IS" a tool and unfortunately doesn't come with instructions...

    There's a button on the remote labeled IN-START. Pressing this button brings up the service menu then you navigate using the left/right/up/down buttons and close the menu by pressing the IN-STOP button. There's a whole bunch of other buttons that don't have anything to do with "normal" tv operation. That's where an instruction manual would come in handy. I intend to use my remote for only one purpose, which is to reset the lamp timer the next time I have to replace the lamp.

Philips 50" flat screen - Closed captioning won't turn off


on my magnavox it was the verizon fios remote that enabled it by accident (it is tuned to control the tv) however it was a cc button represented by the * on the remote that i had to select to change the cc. this didn't make it go away so i just pressed buttons i used the "Aspect" button represented by the # it changed the ratio and the message went away. I usually only use the fios remote to turn the tv on and off but this must be some whacky override that comes from the fios remote.

Tv stuck on zoom


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Please check your cable box settings first. Sometimes the remotes have a picture size button on them, and the in-laws could have pressed that by accident. Check the TV settings, press Menu Button & then go to WINDOW/IMAGE SIZE. Now select normal size.

Also check the settings of the converter box (if you are using it). The boxes also have a peculiar problem: Unless users manually change settings from show to show, the picture from many stations either won’t fill the screen, or it will be so big that part of the picture is cut off by the edges of the screen. The solution is to press the “zoom” button on the remote that comes with the converter box. That will expand the picture so it fills the screen. If still the issue persists, then you’ll need to go to the service menu. To go to the service menu please start with the TV off and press mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power the remote on. Now the TV will come on with the menu displayed and from there you can change the settings as required.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

I have a Samsung LE26R72B. the digital tv has just stopped working. the digital screen has frozen with 'FILM 4' on it. i can't acces the digital menu and i cant change channel. all other features of the tv...


Solution that worked for me:

Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.

Lamp clock reset


The only way to reset the lamp timer is with the LG programmer remote, however resetting the lamp timer does not affect the picture quality. If you need a part # for the remote let me know. Maybe you can find an auth. service center who will let you use the remote. If they do, simply power the unit up and when running hit the instart button on the programmer remote and after the menu comes on the screen simply hit the offstart button. The unit will shut of and when you power it again the lamp timer will be reset.
