Factory settings ws55908

Normal factory settings are for normal video and audio. Convergence factory setting will default all convergence setting requiring a full alignment of which I would not recommend. Factory settings in the service mode will change the geometry, gray scale, and others, that's another one I would not recommend. Tell me why your asking, and the problem your having?

How do i unlock the key--- display on my Provision television that is operated by a beko 12.1 remote control.I also need the service code for some Geometric adjustment.

Service Menu Access Procedure To access the service menu, press and hold the handset sound mute button whilst pressing the TV's front panel 'Menu' button (under the front panel cover on the TV). The up/down channel buttons on the handset step through the options and the left/right buttons change the data values. Turn the TV off to get out of service mode and DO NOT touch any other handset buttons whilst in service mode. Service menu access is also similar for many other Toshiba large-screen TV's so this procedure may work on other Toshiba TV's - even those sold outside the UK.

Maybe this list can help you, click here for a list of each widescreen Toshiba TV Service Menu adjustment with details on the purpose of each.

The factory settings of each service menu option will be entirely different on every TV manufactured, due to component, tube and scan coil tolerances, so don't under any circumstances adjust your TV's settings to my factory default settings or your TV's picture will probably look awful! The factory settings are provided out of interest - the useful part of this document is actually the definition of each service menu option. You will see that some geometry settings are duplicated for each screen mode such as 'Cinema' and 'Subtitle'. This could, for example, help resolve a geometry problem that's present just in one screen mode.

I hope help you with this.

Colour settings all wrong

No worries. Go back into the service mode and you can Recall the saved memory. This will make the picture snap back.
Good luck and be careful navigating around in there.

Power/Standby light blinks green then screen goes blank (off) for

I have a similar problem. Just found out a possible solution yesterday. I am waiting for my lamp but here's what you need to do if you have replaced your lamp. Go into self diagnostics mode: Switch of your TV via remote, you will see red standy by light. Now,on the remote press "Display"=>"Channel 5"=>"Volume Up"=>"Power Button". All these keys need to be pressed within 3 seconds. You will now enter the diagnostics mode. Press "Jump" on remote (bottom right) 3 times and then press "Channel 2" 9 times. The screen will display your current lamp hours used.

In order to reset your tv to factory settings and for the new bulb to work you must reset this timer or else your TV will assume you are still using the old bulb and will automatically kick in "over protection mode". So here's what you do once you do on the lamp hours display screen. Press the "Channel 3" button on the remote 3 times then "Mute" then "Press Enter" to reset the timer to zero. Your TV should now work as normal. And remember, whenever a part is replaced all factory settings must be reset to zero. To do this, follow "Display"=>"Channel 5"=>"Volume Up"=> "Power Up" to enter service mode. Finally, press "Channel 8" and then "Enter" to put the TV back to factory settings.

The above mentioned is usually performed by a service technician and they charge somewhere around $95 diagnostic fee. You just saved this charge. If you see flashing red lights count them when they flash in sequence. This is a code for the techs to tell them what is wrong. These flashing red lights sequentially flash from 0 to 10 times to identify a problem. Usually, when the bbulb goes bad the only thing that might need to be replaced would be a "lamp Driver" aka "Power Block Assembly" $116.25 online from Sony, or the ballast. Sometimes, if you do not have a video a Thermal FUse can go bad which only costs $4.80 for the KDF60-XS955 but the techs will charge you over $300. You can do this yourself if you can get your hands on a service manual.

Hope this info helps.

Good Luck to you all.

Factory settings

I have heard of a reset in the factory 2 position of the service menu. Click the button behind the little hole in the front panel a second time and it goes into 2nd service mode.

I have never used that mode, I only use the first sm, but have heard that you can reset your conv points that way. You'll still have a lot of work to do afterwards, of course.

Once the STK ICs have been changed out/replaced when defective, the conv should still be roughly where it was before and only need trimming. Only once has a massive shift happened when I have done this, which needed massive corrections. So it does happen, but only very rarely.

I offer phone consultation, if you wish, to get it really good in there.

No audio after adjusting service mode settings

Check the audio menu to see what the factory defaults are. It could be that the audio processor is in a mode which turns off the internal speakers. Usually this is accessable from the customer menus. Most models have several choices for the audio processor and without checking I have no idea what the factory setting would be. I would not think that they would ship a unit that way but stranger things have happened. It certainly can't hurt to see where it is set. Certainly if you have sound through an external amp the sound circuits are working up to the built in amplifier. I suppose the internal amplifier could have a problem but it would be 1 in a million that it happened just as you were doing adjustments in the service mode. I think that it would have to be a configuration issue if it worked before. Good luck.
