Hi,

On the narrow underside on the left side of your TV, there is be a very small round button between the "MENU" and "DISPLAY/SET" buttons:

This is the "FUNCTIONAL LOCK" button. If you press this button repeatedly, your TV will cycle through various lock options and "OFF". The current option will be displayed on the screen.

Press this button repeatedly until "OFF" displays on the TV screen.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric.

Where do I buy IR Sensor for Pioneer plasma TV PDP-4214. I don't have part number and I live in Alhambra, outside of Los Angeles.


You will only be able to buy the entire board from Pioneer in Long Beach, if it's still available. If not, I may be able to repair the board to the component level. If you need a repair, please contact me through my website at audioserviceclinic.com. I used to work for Pioneer,

Problem with picture on HP Plasma TV


hello!
This is known problem with PDP displays. That means: one of X-buffers has bad connection to the PDP(plasma display). Or, in some cases, depend on PDP type, it could be panel itself at fault. You need to open your set carefully and get an access to X-buffers. Usually, at the very bottom of PDP, covered with aluminum heat sinks. By turning set on, while face down, start tapping slightly with isolated handle of medium size screwdriver. Observe, when line(s) vanished. That's where connection(ribbon cable) between PDP and X-buffer is compromised.
In some PDPs, those integrated into panel itself and nothing you can do, except to live with that or replace panel. Hope, you end up just reconnecting ribbons. Anyway, you must have very good technician background to do so.
good luck,
Alex.

TV won't take remote control commands


I have the same issue. Obvious thing is to install new batteries. I assume you have done this already. Have you tried using the buttons on the bottom of the monitor to scroll through the main menu using the volume buttons to option 3, and scroll down to IR remote to see if it is selected ON. If it is OFF, select ON with the bottom LEFT or RIGHT buttons.If your remote still does not work, you can try to work it by connecting a 1/8" stereo mini-plug cable into the front end of the remote and the other end to the monitor remote control jack(second from bottom on back panel). Check the IR Remote settings this way. If it still does not work then you have the exact same problem I have... IR and Wired remote inoperative. I am still hoping for a solution but I am afraid there is either a stuck bit in the IR remote circuit or a bad board/chip. Anyone have a solution to this??

Lock access code


Just follow the steps carefully and you should be up and running again. Thanks for the model number.

1) To reset/change the SMART LOCK code, follow these steps.

Press the MENU button on the remote to display the on-screen menu.

Press the Cursor Up (also known as CH + button, above menu button) or Cursor Down (CH - below the menu button) to highlight SMART LOCK. Then press the Cursor Right (VOL + button to right of menu button) to display the SmartLock ACCESS CODE screen.

Using the numbers on the remote keypad, enter 0 7 1 1. " INCORRECT CODE" will appear on the screen. Enter the code 0 7 1 1 again.

Cursor Down to CHANGE CODE and enter 0 7 1 1 and then CONFIRM CODE and enter 0 7 1 1.

Press the STATUS / EXIT button (left of CH +) to save the new code in memory.

2) If the grandkids have locked out any channels, then you will have to perform the following steps:

Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight CLEAR ALL, right arrow.

You should then see CHANNEL....ALL, LOCK....YES, ALL UNLOCKED.

3) To turn SMART LOCK off, follow these steps.

Press MENU, highlight SMART LOCK, right arrow, enter 0 7 1 1, confirm by entering 0 7 1 1 again.
Cursor to BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow, and highlight BLOCKING OPTIONS, right arrow,
