Question about Pioneer PRO-1009W 57" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Remote Difficulty I purchased this set used. I am able to access the MENU by pushing that button, which pops up at the Picture-in-Picture option. I am unable to use the touch-sensitive arrow keys to move within the menu. Additionally, if I select the Picture-in-Picture sub-menu, I am still unable to cursor up or down in it. I have programed a Comcast universal remote to control the TV, but have not found any way that it can access or affect the MENU routine.

Apex TV Service Mode

The service menu for this TV may be accessed by holding down the INPUT button on the TV and pressing 2580 on the remote. To navigate the service menu use the arrow keys on the remote. The center Enter button is used to go down into a submenu. The Menu button returns from a submenu. The exit key exits the menu.

There is an option to adjust Over Scan in the Picture settings menu. Set the positions to zero and the size to +100 for both horizontal and vertical. Then set the Sharpness to zero in the Picture Mode menu for each picture mode (optional, but sharpness makes text and sharp lines really ugly if you're using a PC).

I've owned this TV since Feb. 2013 and I've been disgusted with its lack of disable-able overscan and forced to use VGA to get a usable picture. The VGA port finally started going out (flickering colors) and rather than tearing it apart to resolder the VGA connector I tried to find a service manual again. Found one for a different Apex LCD TV but the service code was the same. It's like having a brand new, much better TV now! Overscan is the worst thing the TV industry ever did, it's totally and completely unnecessary on digital, pixel-perfect signals.

If you can't access the Menu option with your present remote control, there is no other way to do this without its original remote control.

Is there a way to access the tint function on the Apex4088? It is not accessable when we go into the picture setup menu. It appears to be locked.


The Tint function can be accesed by the following steps.

The PICTURE menu offers options to enhance and refine the picture displayed on your TV based on ambient room light and personal preferences. Adjustment options include contrast, brightness, color, sharpness and color temperature

Press the MENU button on the remote control. Navigate using t u arrow buttons to select PICTURE. Press the down q arrow button to highlight PICTURE MODE, then press the u arrow button to select your viewing preference from 4 factory options:
STANDARD > DYNAMIC > MOVIE > PERSONAL. The STANDARD setting is recommended for most viewing environments. Depending on the ambient light level in the room, you may find one of the other options more pleasing.

To make more critical adjustments based on your own preferences in PERSONAL:

• Use down q arrow button to highlight Contrast. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease contrast intensity.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Brightness. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease overall brightness.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Color. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to increase or decrease color intensity.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Tint. Navigate using the
t u arrow buttons to adjust colors toward green or reddish tint.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Sharpness. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to soften or view crisper edges in the picture.
• Use down q arrow button to highlight Color Temperature. Navigate using the t u arrow buttons to select COOL (more bluish tone), NORMAL or WARM. The default setting is NORMAL. WARM mode will provide color that is calibrated to D6500° Kelvin, the standard color that broadcast stations and the Motion Picture industry consider as the most accurate to view programming.
Note: When adjustments are completed, you may select another menu by pressing the Menu button.

Hi there. The actual button option that you will need to use for this adjustment will be the aspect button and, unfortunately, this button is only on the remote and not on the TV itself. If there is a control panel located on one of the sides of this set, you may be able to push the menu button here and navigate your way threw the menus screen to the aspect option. I suspect you will need the remote.

please rate and God bless..

How to reset my Denon DN-V210 DVD Player to factory default?

Hi Jason,
I have just bought this unit and have been using the menu recently. The only ways i can see to do it would be to either, (as you say) plug it into a HDTV, or navigate the menu blind and hope for the best. 
If you press SETUP on your remote once to get to the menu setup screen and then push the RIGHT navigation button 3 times this should take you to the system setup screen. Then push the DOWN navigation button 4 times and then push ENTER. At this point it asks you for a 4 digit password to reset the unit which is a factory preset, 5555, so type that in. This should then reset the DVD player to factory settings.
Hope it helps,

Samsung LCD picture adjustment... Store Demo...WTF...?

Push the volume button on the television set (not the remote) up once.

Then press the menu button (TV, not remote) for about 12 seconds.

It should flash once and go to dynamic mode (center, bottom of the screen), which will indicate that it is now in the "non-store-demo" mode, allowing you to save your picture settings, and access the menus.
