Re: Menu problems

An incredibly simple fix after a month of frustration. Get a blank USB flash drive. Go to Philips web-site. Go to your model #. Look at problems and you'll see the menu problem. You need new software. Follow directions and download software on to flash drive. Plug in to set and watch it load up. Instant fix. I'm a very non-geek and the whole process took <15 minutes.

Re: Menu problems

OK this is going to sound stupid but do you know where the remote is. I had this happen once and found the remote under a book that was leaning on the channel button. Turn the set on and it would just keep flipping between channels. Anyway to first see if it is the remote causing this take the batteries out of the remote and see if this cures the menu pop up problem. If it persists then it is possinble that the menu button that is located on the TV it's self is stuck in, gently tap on it or pull on it to see if this is the case. If the proble still ppersists then it may be another remote causing interference or the menu button on the TV is broke.

TV stuck on setup menu, no remote

Its possible if side menu does not stop it that button (switch under it) is bad.

About the only remote chance you have is to remove set and a box from power and after several minutes power them back.

Pink color on projection TV

Okay, I'll give you the easy fix and the permanent fix here. Easy fix - accomplish what those guys do, without the laptop: Turn off the set. Hold down the Menu/Exit button while you turn it on. Release the button a couple seconds after the set comes on. That brings you into the service menu. Hit menu on the remote for more options. Scroll down to Memory Init. Check the box next to that to clear the pink. Then hit exit on the remote to exit the service menu. I'm still looking up some specifics on the permanent fix - I'll get back to you.

Samsung tv keeps switching off

Samsung has had quite a bit of trouble with their televisions turning off. For some this is a problem with the power supply but if your power light is on, that is unlikely. If you unplug your television, will it turn on again? First thing I wold do is to check for a firmware update and download it to a USB drive. Unplug the cable and using the menu on the TV, update the firmware. After updating, hold he exit key down for 30 seconds and reset the TV. If that does not work, you may need your power supply changed.

My tv keeps reverting to the Philips TV Menu

If that TV has a 'menu' button on the front of the set, make sure nothing like coca-cola has spilled into where that switch is located. I would try a different remote in case the remote is getting flaky....

Lc32gd8e backlight goes out in middle of a program

This is not a complete solution, but I have found that once the backlight has gone out, I can normally get it back by selecting the "Audio Only" option in the setup menu without turning the set off. This option is really intended for use with radio broadcasts when the picture carries no useful content.
When I press the 'menu' button on the remote and select the right hand most tab, the top option under this tab is 'Audio only'. I select the tab, and then exit from the menu until I need it. When the backlight goes out, I press the following key sequence:
menu, down, ok, right, ok, menu
and the picture reappears. Pressing the menu button opens the menu page at the correct (righthand most) tab. the down highlights the 'audio only' option, and the OK selects this. The right turns the option on (with the backlight working, the picture is removed, but the menu is still displayed). The second OK activates the option. The backlight is turned out. Finally, the second menu key press turns the backlight back on again. This technique has the advantage that the sound continues throughout the sequence, and the recovery of the picture is faster than waiting for the set to boot from a power off condition.
I suspect the problem is caused by an intermittent contact on one of the tubes, possibly as the result of some movement as the tube warms up and expands. (There are 8 tubes in the 32" set.) This causes a safety ciruit to shut down the inverter supplying power to the tubes. Switching off the backlight resets the safety circuit. If I manage to confirm this suspicion, I will write again.

My Hisense lcd is lock.

This is how I got mine to work after weeks of struggling just trying to find a new remote (hisense is really hard to contact....).
1) Turn the TV ON. unplug the tv while still ON 2) hold down the "menu" button on the side of the TV and plug it back in. keep holding it down. the TV should turn on with the menu popping up. use the Vol <> keys and Channel <> keys to navigate the menu. go to the Vchip menu, and play around. I'm not sure what ultimately worked, but i changed the Vchip password to 1111, turned the reset menu to "on" and played around with the ratings settings (turning most of them to "u"s etc).
I went through this process several times and finally, the black background behind the menu turned to static. I played around with the channels, and the TV was unlocked. I turned the TV off, and then on again, and the channels showed up normally (no static). and it was no longer locked. I had to do the unplug thing several times, and was getting really frustrated looking for an "unlock code" in the manual (it just says press the button on the remote. so it was not really helpful).
But really, once you can just get to that menu you've made some progress, and just keep playing around with it until something works.
Best of luck!!

Try turning the main power switch on the back of the tv off.
Then hold the menu button and push that switch back on while still holding the menu button.
Keep holding the menu button until the setup menu pops up.
Next, be sure your input is set correctly(air or cable).
Next, do an auto channel search.

That did it for me. After I shut it off I had to do it one more time but it did the job. A friend of mine gave me the tv for free because nobody he new could figure it out. I took it home, got lucky, and figured it out in about ten minutes.

Hope this works for you. line-gry.gif
