TV Menu is in wrong language

It looks like the screen displays on all menu selections is now in Swedish or a similar language. I want English.

The 'Install' option on the main menu is greyed out so the language cannot be changed.

Is there a 'Universal Reset' - I would prefer to do this as I want to start again with setting the TV channels?

    I was asked "Can you get to Languages through the main menu without going to install?"

    There is no Languages option on the main menu.The main menu reads

    Bild (colour?)
    Ljud (sound?)
    Egeenskaper - can't be selected
    Installera - greyed out

    Hope that helps to pinpoint the response.

    But surely there must be a universal reset such as poking a paper clip in a hole, or holding down buttons during start-up or one of the other many reset options found on virtually every piece of equipment.

    I have a Philips model 20PF5320 /01. I have not yet received any suggestions yet.

    Someone must know of a 'Universal Reset'? Please...

    It seems the main cpu controller is defective.

    It could be a soft code problem or a hardware problem.

    ONE: Do a hard reset.  Merely unplug the power cord for 4 hours or more.  When you power it back up the internal codes will all be automatically restored to the factory default settings.

    TWO:  If the hard reset does not help it means there is a hardware problem. Either the controller IC or some other components must be replaced.

    Is the set worth the repair?  Only the shadow knows.  It is marginal in age; usually one this old I would not recommend it be repaired.  Why? Because once a set begins to have serious problems it is statistically very likely another failure will follow soon after.  Then, with a couple of repair bills you will be wishing you had just bought a new set. On the ohther hand, if it is a good set and you like it it may be worth it and you may get lucky and find it will go reliably for another 10 years; a pure guess into the future.

    I would guess the repair, assuming an IC had to be replaced, to run around $150. But you may have to leave it in the shop for a few days while they order out the part - unless you can get it into a factory authorized facility that is well equipped.

    Do you have any further questions?

The only universal reset is by unplugging the power cable.

If you tell me the model number you can try entering in service mode, but I don't think it can help.

The Fault need a reinstall of the internal firmware.


The firmware for Philips TVsis not distributed, you need to have repair done at an authorized service centre if unplugging does not reset.

Call philips at the phone number listed on the ownler manual.

The fault may be a factory defect, in that case will be repaired for free, regardless of warranty and age of the set.
If you need Philips support number let me know your location and the TV model.

I answer within 24 hours .

Thanks

I cannot find how to change language frm swedish to english


Assuming that all the text is inSwedish and you can't understand it then follow these instructions. Using 'PANEL' button(X at bottom left) on front facia select the top left Panel (black screen with XPERIA written accross the bottom) now select windows logo(top Left)at the bottom of the list should be a 'blue circle with a question mark in the middle of it', immediatley above this should be the 'Settings' folder - select this. You should now have icons(pictures) with 3 'Tabs' along the bottom of the page - select the middle one ( this should be 'system') now look for a Globe (picture of the World) this should be 'Regional Settings' - select this. From the drop down menu select 'English' and whatever regional dialect you want, when you have done this tap top right corner, this should be OK until you are back at the Main Panel, now shut down and then restart X1, you should now have everything in English. Good luck.

I want to change laguage from Swedish to English.


The customer cannot go to setup menu because he won't be able to read it - it's in Swedish

This is what I need you to do.
Press the menu button (base everything on symbols/icons) - You would see a menu in swedish but on top are tabs. The rightmost tab is a camera with a ranch symbol - so move the joystick to the rightmost tab. Scroll down to the option with a BUBLLE SYMBOL with ABC on it, press in the joystick (toggle switch) to enter or select and scroll down look for ENGLISH.

Laserjet 3600 HP printer in wrong language in display led screen


When you say writing, I assume you mean the language on the printer's display. Here's a step by step guide (since I assume you can't read the Japanese).

Press the blue Checkmark button to access the menu system. Press the down area twice which will give you access to the configuration menu. Press the Checkmark button to select this menu. Press the down arrow twice to access the system setup menu. Press the Checkmark button to select this menu. Press the down arrow 13 times (you can just keep pressing it until it gets to the bottom. It won't go any farther than the last entry) to get to the very last entry which is language.Press the Checkmark button to select this menu. The languages will be displayed in their native scripts. The first one is English. Press the Checkmark button to select English. And you are done. Press the U shaped arrow to get back to the main menu.
