How do i change sleep mode


Sleep Timer Mode

The Sleep Timer mode is an energy-saving feature that enables you to set a time for the monitor to
power on and off at the same time every day. This also extends the life of the backlight bulbs in the
monitor. The Sleep Timer has five settings:
? Set Current Time
? Set Sleep Time
? Set On Time
? Timer: On/Off
? Sleep Now

To set the timer:
1. Press the Menu button on the monitor front panel to display the OSD Menu.
2. Scroll down and highlight Management.
3. Press the OK button to select Management.
4. Scroll down and highlight and select Sleep Timer > Set Current Time.
NOTE: You must set the current local time before you reset the time for Sleep Time or On Time. Note that the time is displayed in a 24-hour clock format. For example, 1:15 p.m. is displayed as 13 hours 15 minutes. A power failure or loss of power to the monitor will cause the timer to reset to 00:00. If this occurs, you will need to reset the sleep timer mode.

5. Press the OK button once to enter the adjustment mode for hours.
6. Press the - (Minus) or + (Plus) button to adjust the hour.
7. Press the OK button again to enter the time for minutes.
8. Press the - (Minus) or + (Plus) button to adjust the minutes.
9. Press the OK button to lock in the time chosen.
10. After setting the current time, the highlight automatically skips to Set Sleep Time. Repeat steps 6 through 9 to set Sleep Time.
11. If you do not want to set Sleep Time, press the OK button twice, then select Save and Return to exit the menu.
12. After setting Sleep Time, the highlight automatically skips to Set On Time. Repeat steps 6 through 9 to set On Time.
13. Set the Timer mode to On to activate the Sleep Timer settings.
14. When you are finished, select Save and Return to exit the menu.

The fifth selection, Sleep Now, turns the monitor backlights off immediately and stays in sleep mode
until the next On Time activates or a monitor button is pressed.

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.

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.

TV will not come on with remote or power button


The following instructions are for the Emerson EWC1303/1903 tv/vcr. That's the closest match I could find to the Spongebob Squarepants 13' TV
If it's actually in Sleep mode, do the following:

TO CANCEL THE SLEEP TIMER
Press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button on the remote
control until “SLEEP TIMER” appears.
To view the time left for sleep timer press the WAKE
UP/SLEEP button twice, then press the MENU button
on the remote control to exit the sleep timer setting


If unsuccessful, try unplugging the TV for 1/2 hour, then plug it in and try turning it back on either manually or with the remote. Either of these should solve your problem. Best of luck to you!

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.
