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.

Re: Remote Difficulty

Looks like you are in trouble may have to buy origional remote.there are certain programmable remotes out there which give every function of the origional.most service centers have them,they have to be programmed by computer to suit each individual set.

How do i adjust the magic focus?

  • Press "Menu" on the remote select the "Magic Focus" option in the Video menu or press the "Magic Focus" button on the front panel to adjust the convergence of the three picture tubes that create the proper color for the picture. Pressing the button on the TV initiates the automatic adjustment, and accessing the feature through the Video menu allows you to choose automatic or manual adjustment, though the "Automatic" setting must be selected for the button on the front of the TV to begin the process.

    How doi reset the picture after replacing the bulb and housing


    It is not required to set the Picture after replacing the Lamp and Housing. To change the Picture Settings press the MENU button on the Remote, highlight PICTURE and press OK. There you'll get the option to select Picture Preset Mode, Picture Settings, Screen Format, Advanced Picture and Screen Adjust mode. You can customize the settings by selecting the each Picture Menu options.
    Click here to download the manual of the TV. View page # 39 for the instructions to change the Picture Menu.

    Good Luck!

    How do i unlock the key--- display on my Provision television that is operated by a beko 12.1 remote control.I also need the service code for some Geometric adjustment.

    Service Menu Access Procedure To access the service menu, press and hold the handset sound mute button whilst pressing the TV's front panel 'Menu' button (under the front panel cover on the TV). The up/down channel buttons on the handset step through the options and the left/right buttons change the data values. Turn the TV off to get out of service mode and DO NOT touch any other handset buttons whilst in service mode. Service menu access is also similar for many other Toshiba large-screen TV's so this procedure may work on other Toshiba TV's - even those sold outside the UK.

    Maybe this list can help you, click here for a list of each widescreen Toshiba TV Service Menu adjustment with details on the purpose of each.

    The factory settings of each service menu option will be entirely different on every TV manufactured, due to component, tube and scan coil tolerances, so don't under any circumstances adjust your TV's settings to my factory default settings or your TV's picture will probably look awful! The factory settings are provided out of interest - the useful part of this document is actually the definition of each service menu option. You will see that some geometry settings are duplicated for each screen mode such as 'Cinema' and 'Subtitle'. This could, for example, help resolve a geometry problem that's present just in one screen mode.

    I hope help you with this.

    Access the menu options manually

    Press the set's Volume (+) and (-) buttons simultaneously to activate the Menu display. Use the Channel Down button to scroll to the desired menu item, then use Volume (+) or (-) to change that item, or to activate a sub-menu if any. (If in a sub-menu, again use Channel Down to reach the desired item, then Volume (+) or (-) to change its setting or value.) When finished, press Volume (+) and (-) simultaneously as needed to "back out" of the menu.

    Not all set functions can be reached this way, especially a few involving numeric entry; but this will get you started. Good luck!

    E44W46LCD Lamp Timer Reset

    To reset the lamp timer, hold the "enter" button on the tv and the "mute" button on the remote at the same time. Once the menu pops up, hit the right arrow on the remote and confirm the reset.

    I would guess that's it's a little too late for this answer now, but for future reference... ;-)

    Adjusting the convergance

    On my 55 inch rear projection Samsung, there is a menu option to adjust the convergence. There is a manual as well as an automatic option. It is easier to do with the remote control. My Samsung remote has a button called 'perfect convergence' or something like that. you can also get to it from the menu tree pushing the menu button on the front of the set. You need to scroll through all the options to adjust color, contrast, parental control, etc. You should find it.

    I assume the same is true on the 37inch samsung.

    How old is the set? A number of samusng sets have problems with two large IC's that tend to burn out. This causes the symptom of colored shaddows, tend to be worse the further away from the center of the screen. I just finished doing the repair to my set. If you cannot adjust the convergence, that is most likely your problem.

    Good luck!

    Screen is off centered

    Every tv has a secret service menu accessed through a secret sequence of buttons on your non-secret remote.

    With the power off, press this button sequence:

    power on

    You should now be seeing the secret service menu.

    Before you touch ANYTHING write down what the initial setting was. I mean it mister.
    I think hitting volume down selects an option, while hitting "menu" takes you out of that option and into the area you were just in. There are lots of things to do here.

    Before you do anything, go to the video options (there ought to be four of them), under one of them (second one I think) is the option to turn VM or SVM on or off (a setting of "zero" is off). For God's sake turn this off. I think it says "VM level" or something. Anything that says "VM" needs to be set to zero.

    Now, to center the picture, I think you'll want the very top menu at the start of the service menu. One is horizontal something and the other is vertical something. BTW, it helps to have a test pattern for overscan when doing this. Do you own a copy of Digital Video Essentials? You should. Again, write down settings before you change them, so if you screw up you can fix it. To save your settings, keep hitting menu until you're back to the first screen, and hit mute twice. Then turn your tv off and back on. After using the service menu, my tv is always put in "dynamic" picture mode. Never, ever, ever use this mode. It will make the picture way too bright and kill your tv before its time. Use DVE or another calibration DVD to get the settings right on your tv.

    BTW, you can also correct overscan in the service menu, but I wouldn't push it lower than 5%.
