Can't access menus to adjust overscan on Apex LD3249 TV

I've spent a large part of the afternoon attempting to access the advance menu and the service menu for my Apex LD3249 TV to no avail. The overscan cuts off too much of the picture when displaying via my computer and also from my game consoles. I understand from the manual that I SHOULD be able to adjust it in the Advance menu, but it's disabled on all input modes (TV, Component, HDMI, etc) and when I try to access the service menu using the way commonly talked about for Apex TVs (volume down to 0, mute TV, then press mute on remote and menu on the TV) it doesn't work. Any help?

Apex TV Service Mode


The service menu for this TV may be accessed by holding down the INPUT button on the TV and pressing 2580 on the remote. To navigate the service menu use the arrow keys on the remote. The center Enter button is used to go down into a submenu. The Menu button returns from a submenu. The exit key exits the menu.

There is an option to adjust Over Scan in the Picture settings menu. Set the positions to zero and the size to +100 for both horizontal and vertical. Then set the Sharpness to zero in the Picture Mode menu for each picture mode (optional, but sharpness makes text and sharp lines really ugly if you're using a PC).

I've owned this TV since Feb. 2013 and I've been disgusted with its lack of disable-able overscan and forced to use VGA to get a usable picture. The VGA port finally started going out (flickering colors) and rather than tearing it apart to resolder the VGA connector I tried to find a service manual again. Found one for a different Apex LCD TV but the service code was the same. It's like having a brand new, much better TV now! Overscan is the worst thing the TV industry ever did, it's totally and completely unnecessary on digital, pixel-perfect signals.

I have an Apex LD3249 LCD TV that the volume go up to 100 on it's own and won't go down, any suggestions on what could be wrong or how to fix it?


The digital volume control section circuit has the fault. You have to check its main digital board. Might need replacement.

My t,v. jusrt goes to 6 stations and i have cable. instead of it being on cable as usual it says air where it usually says cable. It is a apex t.v. and apex control, thank you joyce.


Which model of APEX TV do you have?

In general, if the TV has had the source changed, you will need to switch it back from Air (OTA) to CATV (cable). Newer TVs may have the choices of Air and Cable for the TV source.

To change the setting, press Menu (on the TV (if present), on the original remote (in TV mode) or on a substitute remote with the Menu function). Use the up/down arrows to select the TV submenu. Select this menu with the right arrow. Then go down through the submenu to the Source line. (It may read CA-TV/Air on an older TV.) Use the left/right arrows to toggle the setting. Then press Menu to save the setting and return to the previous menu. Then go to the CH Scan option in this menu to rescan the available channels.

Note: I've gone through the directions for an older Apex TV (AVL-2076) with an analog (NTSC) tuner. The directions will probably be similar for other TVs but the menus (and sub-menus) may have different names or be in a different order.

I hope this helps.

The picture is bigger than the screen.


You can go into the menu and find the display format and change it. You will see options to display cinema, standard 3:4 9:16 etc. I think you may be able to do it directly from the remote
with ZOOM, PICTURE, DISPLAY.

I have tried to program a At&t U-verse remote to my Apex LD3249. Have tried all codes from At&t U-verse list. None work.


On uverse i got my apex to program by doing the search of codes. There is a code you can enter then hit a button to sequence through all codes by hitting power i believe. when tv turns off you know you have the right one. I am having the same issue on directv now since it does not have this option.
