Volume control slide stuck on screen nothing in remote works or the panel except the channel up or down all else doesnt respond

WS-65809? Unplug set first!

Remove front speaker grill---it should pull out and is secured with pegs.

Behind it you will find an inspection plate---remove the plate---notice the one or two groups of wires coming down from the front keyboard with all the controls.

Follow them to the right behind the inspection plate--you should find one or two plugs---The idea here is to disconnect the keyboard on the front of the set------You will still be able to turn the set on etc with the remote control

With the keyboard disconnected (the plugs if there are two will be different sizes with letters on them so you cannot get them back wrong) plug the set back in and wait about 2 minutes---

Turn it on then with the remote----if set works normally now with the remote one of the micro switches (vol up) on the front keyboard is bad.

You have two choices---leave the plugs undone and just use the remote OR someone has to remove the entire screen from the set and get at the keyboard(it is a small circuit board) to remove/replace whichever tiny micro switch is bad.

Let me know what happens and reply here if you need help of have a question.

Regards, SD TECH

Wierd i know but i cant get the Menu to work at all

Do this. With the set off and using the remote press the following buttons in order within 3 seconds. Display, 5, volume +, power. The set will come on in service mode. Now press 8 then Enter. This will reset the computer in the set back to original factory mode, just like it came out of the box. You will have to reset any personal settings you had before this. IMPORTANT!!!! Do not press any other buttons while in service mode. You could unknowingly cause yourself a lot of trouble.

Good Day, Butchilee,
Sounds like you have patience, hope your TV has some trace left. Hit recommends that you replace the originals with
STK-392-150's and the resistors. Replace said items with care then back down on the screen/ focus controls and gradually bring the screens up until you have pic, adjust focus. Go into customer menu and adjust color down, set brightness to 50%, contrast to 100%. Then go back and adjust the screens for proper, black/white, tracking. AND It's best to double check the soldering connections.
Good Luck, Big Irish.
