Click on "publications ordering" (in the list on the lefthand side of the homepage)
Click the box for service information. Enter the model number (or click the chassis button and enter the chassis number).

In the list of documents you can purchase for $40 ESIATC32X -- the service manual on CD for your set.

This disk will have the info you need.

If you do decide to purchase it (and I highly reccommend you do so), send me the alignment chapter and I would be happy to post it for others who have the same set on my homepage.

I had the same problem. I hooked up the DVD player and then got into the set up. I used the add/erase feature to go through all of the channels. At channel 91, I saw the logo for the dvd player. I added that channel and now the dvd player works.

If you have a problem with the convergence, believe me, going into the service menu and trying to correct it will only give you large headaches, DO NOT USE THR SERVICE MENU UNLESS YOU ARE A TRAINED TECH!!!! Doing so can result in a complete and total failure of this TV set. I service menu is not for any major changes in any adjustment. It is not the cure all. If your convergence all of a suddenly shifted, it is not a service menu issue. Your problem is the convergence amp IC's. Good Luck

Help please stuck in service menu


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 www.servicemanuals.net for about 20 bucks or so. A lot less expensive then a serviuce call I would think.
