Question about RCA F27649 27" TV
My TV recently started begining with a Guide Plus Demonstration every time I turn it on. At the very beigning of the Demo there is a message saying that there is a pin to be pulled out of the back upon sale in order to stop the Guide Plus Demo from occuring. I do not see a pin and I have had the TV for 2 years and this never occured before. Any suggestions as to how to turn off the Demo would be great. Thanks
I have serviced lots of these, and as far as I know the CTC203 chassis has nothing like this, nor did anything made by Thomson before or since, so I am mystified. Adjustments are made with the remote or the front panel buttons using software and there are no "pins," test connectors, switches, or anything similar present on it. Usually the Guide Plus stops working entirely (which is nice for most users, as it is just an annoyance). Now if you unplug your TV for long enough for its microprocessor to reset, it will start with the Guide Plus screen. This is by design and can't be stopped without modification. Corruption of the set's internal program causing something strange like this is possible, but unlikely. (It was a problem on earlier models). Leave your TV plugged in and see if this problem goes away. If this is not the cause, you will have to take it in for service. Any demo modes can be turned on or off with the remote or the buttons on the set.
