Question about Toshiba TP50H50 50" Rear Projection Television
TV appears to be in permanent DEMO mode but it's not showing any of the DEMO. If I press the DEMO button it's starts, but when I exit the black box still stays on the screen. I got into the service mode and the picture clears, except the little "S" that's on the screen. Any ideas as to how to clear this up?
You may have the set in text mode (part of the closed caption menu)
