Can't get the Aging Patterns to Stop

I replaced the lamp and while in the Mute 182 diagnostics, I looked at the various Options. Now I can't get the Aging Patterns to stop appearing every time I power up the television.

I can get the Aging Patterns to go away if I work with it ... but its back again the next time i power up.

Must be something simple. TV works fine ... good picture.

    The solutions did not work.

    There is no SAVE button on the screen.

    I hit bot the ENTER as well as END buttons and I can see the timer light going on and off rapidly like something is being saved ... but its not.

    I unplugged the set for 30 minutes ... no change. When I turn it on and get back to the diagnostics screen, the Aging Patterns is lit up in yellow like its waiting for some type of intervention. I've tried going to User Reset and then going through Enter and End and Off/On ... no difference.

    How do I get out of Aging Patterns on the diagnostics screen?

    Thanks

    4-5hours should be long enough if it is processing. It wasn't.

    I am suspecting just as Mute 182 turns the service menu on, there is another button pattern to save and exit the service menu. Note I have previously referred to the service menu as a diagnostic screen.

    Still looking for a solution that works ... saves and exits the service menu.

  • Ptuii Oct 29, 2008

    Steps 4 & 5 have on affect on the service menu.

    Only the up and down arrows move the cursor to a different Options item.

    Every time the TV is powered up, it automatically opens up with the Aging Pattern option highlighted. Clearly the service menu is not closing.

  • Ptuii Oct 30, 2008

    Team was helpful. Service Menu has stopped appearing although I'm not quite sure why. I think the solution involved one of the following: 1.) Hitting the Menu button twice 2.) Hitting the Menu button then the Mute button or 3.) Allowing the Aging Pattern to stay on for several minutes while it ran completely through it's processing routine.

    Whatever the solution, I am appreciative for the help provided by the Experts on this site.

Samsung dlp hln617w aging pattern problem


I am actually having the same problem. I just reciently installed a new bulb and messing around in the service menus, and ended up with the same problem. I found that if if in the same menu the aging pattern was in, I think it was the last menu, and click on the EW RESET, let the TV reset and that should fix your problem.

Need assistance with figuring out how to reset my samsung tv, i chose wrong setting.


Good day, mckernannick;
To reset the TV first try unplugging for 2-3 minutes from wall. If that does not work try going into the service menu. Turn TV off, on remote push mute 182 power. You should see srv menu open options by flowing OSD directions. Make sure to note previous settings before making any adjustments. BE CAREFUL!!
Good luck, big IRISH.
