    if you read what i posted above, i didnt say i knew nothing about it, i actually fixed about 90% of the picture problems i had using the service menu. i guess i will resort to spending money on a service manual if i cant get any real responses related to the questions i ask. again, if anyone who has the service manual or is familiar with this service menu could answer my question i thank youj in advance.

  • Garrett Smuk Aug 03, 2007

    thanks for your help, i ended up buying the manual i was just trying to avoid spending money because im cheap. wasnt trying to be a jerk but i was frusterated and figured out the controls on the service manual except for how to turn it off. if i want to measure the white/black balance what kind of meter should i look into getting? thanks again

You should have purchaced the service manual before you went into the sevice mode, as the service mode is a dangerous place to be if you do not know anything about it. You can get the service manual from for about 20 bucks or so. A lot less expensive then a serviuce call I would think.

    I am sorry, but if you knew what was up you would not be asking for help. Simply press the power button as well as the action button on the TV set at the same time for 2 seconds. NOT ON THR REMOTE CONTROLLER! The set should shut off and come back with a medium volume and on channel three. You may also need to reprogram the channel memory, as a lot of sets lose the channels after the service mode is active and restored., and a few does not, so if the channels do not work, don't panic and go back to the service menu to see what was done. Like I said I have seen a lot of peeps go back in and get confused. BUT that said, if your going to be a technician, get the service manual, as it will help you a lot in the future.

    A simple inexpensive digital VOM should work fine.

Techman, I have the following details into Service Mode: 15.1 Quick entry to service mode: TOP PREVIOUS NEXT When minor adjustments need to be done to the electronic controls, the method for entering the service mode without removal of the cabinet back is as follows, using the remote control: Select SET-UP icon, enter ?Program CH? and select CABLE mode in ?Input Setup? option. Select TIMER icon and set SLEEP time for 30 Min. Press ?OK? then VOL up to exit menus. Tune to the Channel 124. Adjust VOLUME to minimum (0). Press VOL ← (decrease) on receiver. Red ?CHK? appears in upper corner. To toggle between aging and service modes: While the ?CHK? is displayed on the left top corner of the CRT, pressing ?OK? and ?VOL? UP on the TV simultaneously will toggle between the modes. Red ?CHK? for service modeand yellow ?CHK? for aging. Press POWER on the remote control to display the service adjustment modes menu, select adjustment by pressing the VOL right/left buttons and CH up/down buttons on the remote and OK to enter the adjustment. Service mode menu TOP PREVIOUS NEXT Have you gotten this to work?

Lost password optoma hd66

Manufacturers normally have a backdoor, a four digit password to gain access into their operating software when the user changes the password settings.

Optoma people told me their default PASSWORD is usually 2468 or 8642. One of the two will work to unlock access to full menu options.

Hi i have a 1997 dyna wide glide leaking oil. I was told it is a rocker cover gasket on the back cylinder . Ive had it for over 2 years and done nothing to it except regular oil changes.I was wondering...

There is no such thing as self adjusting rods whatever you might be referring to. Cheapest and best money saving idea for you to spend about 75 dollars and buy a service manual. Rocker box gaskets are not a big deal to change but get a service manual and do exactly u what it says.

The magnets in the speakers will not effect the LCD monitor. If it is an LCD the problem in internal to the unit. You need skematics, trouble shooting skills, test equipment to repair this. If your menu can't fix it then your going to need lots of help with this one. Good luck

You some how got into the service menu, and your going to need to call an authorized servicer for this brand, and they are going to have to tell you how to put the TV back to factory defaults, If thats not possible, the sets going to have to be re adjusted and go through every alighnment to see what you changed. If that ever happens again, cancel out of that menu, as its for the trained tech to change things, as theres a process that has to be followed.
