Can't set the sleep timer

What is the purpose of the 'sleep' button on the remote? It doesn't work, it doesn't set the sleep timer! When I select the 'timer' menu to set the sleep timer, I see 'sleep', 'timer 1', etc... but I can't scroll down to set the sleep timer!@!!

Problems sony bravia tv


Go into the menu and turn off the timer. The timer can be set to turn off the tv after a predetermined time. Look for sleep timer. May be on remote control.

Does it have a sleep timer?


hello!
yes, it has the one! you need to go to the menu, setup portion of that. you'll see: clock set, timers, etc. That's where you will find it. A bit complicated, but possible. If your remote lacks "sleep" button, get the one with it.
good luck,
Alex.

Sanyo television doesn't turn off either by using the remote or by turning it off at the tv.All other fuctions work using the remote or directly on the set.Even using the sleep timer doesn't turn...


Unplug the set and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and see if that fixes it. If it doesn't then it sounds like there is a problem on the board underneath the power button. Something isn't allowing the circuit to be cut.

How do i set the timer? i use it for my alarm.


Which timer do you want to use? To use the On/Off Timer, press Menu and use the navigation arrows to select Time. Press Enter and navigate (up/down arrows) to select either On Time or Off Time. Press Enter and then use the up/dwon arrows to select Repeat. Select the frequency for the timer function (off, once, everyday etc.) with the left/right arrows. Use both the up/down and left/right arrows to set the time (hour or minute). Press Return to return to the previous menu and Menu to leave the OSD menus. For the On Time, you can also select the input source that will be shown when the TV comes on. (Select Input similarly to the above directions and set the desired channel if the source is TV.) The time must be for this to work (select Time and then Clock then Auto (gets the time from a digital channel) or Manual) and the TV must be in Standby mode for the On Timer to work. The TV will go into standby in two hours after coming on unless a button is pressed on the remote or the TV. The Off timer will override the TV On if they are set for the same time.

The Sleep timer is set in the same Time area or in the Q.menu (from the remote). Select Sleep time and then the length of time you want the tv to stay on before going to sleep. This is reset when the TV goes off.

The Shut-off time is set in the Time menu as well; select Auto Sleep. When this is on (on/off options), the TV will shut off after 10 minutes without a signal.

I hope this helps.

Black screen and no sound after a few minutes.


First, here is a copy of your manual in case it is missing.

http://www.warrantyweek.com/library/ww20061219/panasonic-th42px60u-manual.pdf

Next, check the settings of the sleep timer.
Select on the remote:
Menu.
Timer.
Sleep.
See if there is a time setting in there. You may also find a shortcut from the remote labeled "Sleep".

If this fails to resolve the issue, you can always reset to factory defaults. To do this, select from the remote:
Menu.
Setup.
Reset.

Hope this helps. Be sure to let us know how this helped.

JVC 40 inch LCD digital inputs (1 and 2) no longer works. Standard video and component cable inputs work, but not HDMI. Please help


This TV has a sensor that deactivates the inputs when light is sensed. perform this procedure to correct it:

1. press "Sleep" button on the remote
2. while "Sleep timer 0" is showing, simultanuously press "display" and "video" button on the remote
3. you should be in the Service menu of the TV....if not you should do the steps again
4. select "self check" from the displayed options.
5. when the "self check" menu is displayed, Power off the TV.
6. unplug and replug the TV.
7. Check the digital input.

if the input never worked for you, it is possible that you have the DVD/Bluray/whatever set up incorrectly. I don't think this TV accepts 1080P resolution so make sure it is set to 1080i or lower

Sleep Timer on remote does not work


First try to access the sleep timer menu from the controls on the TV to verify the TV is working.

If that works then the remote has the problem.
Now try this;
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
If this does not work, then you may need a new remote unit.
