You need to have that serviced,it sounds like the IR (infrared) reciever board is faulty. you can test your remote by turning the top of the remote (where the IR beam is sent from) to a camera phone and just look at the beam through your phone to see if its the remote or the IR Board

Replaced bulb last nite, green light blinks for a min. then it worked! watched a few min.turned on this morning blinking.... wont stop green blink. last nite when i changed bulb tv said change bulb reset...


Many projectors use a lamp hour timer for predicting bulb life so they can give you fair warning of impending failure. Since a bulb may be removed and reinstalled because it is still working or another used lamp installed, the timer is not automatically reset to zero when the lamp is replaced. I surmise your set is complaining because the timer was not reset or the time verified when you changed the bulb.

To fix the problem, buy or borrow a remote control; a universal remote control with a menu button may work. (If you borrow a universal remote from a friend, be sure to record the code for your friend's TV first so you can set it back before returning it.)

You could probably get back into the timer reset menu by removing the new lamp and reinstalling it. Caution: follow the directions on page 68 of the user's manual or the sheet that came with the bulb - let the set cool for an hour first, unplug, and wear gloves when handling the bulb since skin oil can cause discoloration and possibly an explosion when the bulb gets hot. You can download the user's manual from Panasonic's support page for this set.

If you can edit the timer hours instead of just resetting, you may want to set it for the number of hours the new bulb has been used.

It is likely that you can get into the lamp timer menu if the set is in service mode, but the user's manual doesn't tell how to get there (I don't have that info either - it's in the service manual, which may be available online from a third party for a price). Usually it is something like holding a volume or channel button on the front of the TV while turning it on with the remote control. After that you need the code to switch to the timer menu. If you have problems getting into the timer menu, ask your dealer's service department or try calling the Panasonic help line listed on the bottom of page 68: 1-888-VIEW PTV(843-9788).

Magnavox tv not responding to remotes


I came accross this question, because I've been looking for the remote code for my cable remote. I had originally put the TV remote somewhere in a box when I was moving years ago, Since my cable remote changes the channel, I've been doing the same as you all this time. Therefore, I totally understand your frustration on trying to understanding how to navigate within the menu: It's not what you would think would be a standard or logical way....

Anyway, in my research, I did come accross the TV manual, and I found the instruction on how to reset the TV. I tried the steps, and THEY"RE STILL confusing, so I've added my own hints....hope this helps:

~~~~

Your TV can be reset to the factory settings in case you forget your Smart Lock password, or want to change the picture, sound, or features settings.

1 Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.

In the left panel, you will see four icons (from top to bottom)

  • TV INSTALL (a tv)
  • PICTURE (icon of film)
  • SOUND (a piano)
  • FEATURES (icon of pliers and a hammer)

When the Menu screen is showing the left panel as highlighted light grey, the Chanel buttons have Page up/Page down Functionality


2 Press the the (CH UP) or_(CH DN) buttons to highlight the FEATURES menu.

Navigate to the FEAUTRES menu (icon of pliers and a hammer - bottom of left panel) and you should make sure it is highlighted in blue

3 Press the (VOL+) button to enter into the FEATURES menu.

The right panel should now be highlighted in a light grey

4 Press the (CH UP) or (CH DN) buttons to highlight the FACTORY SETTINGS control.

This will select items in the right panel, FACTORY SETTINGS in on the bottom


5 Press the the _(VOL+) or _(VOL-) buttons to reset the TV to the original factory settings.

6 Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.

~~~~~
The entire manual is found at this link: http://www.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/15mf200v_37/15mf200v_37_dfu_aen.pdf

BTW, of any one know how I can program or get an RCN remote to use on this TV, please let me know!!!!

Nothing appears on my LCD TV display

1 Ensure the LCD TV display is turned on.
2 Verify that all the cables are properly connected to the LCD TV
display, including the power cable.
3 Check to see if there is a blue or amber light on the lower,
right-hand corner of the LCD TV display. A blue light indicates
the LCD TV display is on. An amber light means the LCD TV
display is in power save mode.
4 Ensure the proper source is selected in the Input Select menu.
See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more information.
5 Reconnect any devices that are currently connected to the LCD
TV display. If you are using multiple devices, connect and test
one device at a time.
6 Connect another device that you know is working properly.
7 Reset the original factory defaults. Press Menu on the remote
control, select Setup, and then select Factory Reset.

Problem Possible Solution No sound

1 Ensure mute is not turned on. Pressing the Mute button on
the remote control turns the mute function on and off.
2 If only certain LCD TV channels do not have sound, then you
need to correct the Input Select menu in the TV Menu (see
"Input Select Menu" on page 24).
3 Verify that the audio cables are firmly connected to both the
audio input connectors on your LCD TV display and audio
output connectors on your devices. Ensure that the cable colors
match the connectors colors.
4 Also, ensure that the audio cables are connected to the same
row as the video cables. See "About Your LCD TV Display" on
page 5 for the location of the connectors.
5 Reconnect the device using the same type of connector. For
example, if you are using the composite connector on the
bottom, try connecting the device to the composite connector
on the side of the LCD TV display. See "About Your LCD TV
Display" on page 5 for the location of the connectors.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
information.
6 Connect the device using a different connector. For example,
if you are experiencing the problem using a composite
connector, try using the component connector.
NOTE: To connect to a different connector, you need the
appropriate cables for that connector. See your device
documentation for a list of supported connections.
After you connect the device, change the input source in the TV
Menu. See "Input Select Menu" on page 24 for more
information.
7 Test the device on a different TV.

Cant work my freeview


The [A/D] button on the remote control switches between analogue and dgitial TV.

If this doesn't work you can restore the TV to factory settings as follows:

Press and hold the [Menu] button on the TV (NOT on the remote)

The picture / sound / features menu will appear.

Continue to hold until this menu clears.

Release the [Menu] button and wait for about 90 seconds.

The TV will go blank and eventually return to the original install menu.

Install the TV as you did from new.


This will clear ALL analogue and digital TV channels and install again from scratch.

This should be used if the TV ever freezes on digital, or if any of the channels appear in the wrong place or not at all.

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

Reconnecting


When you turned off the Wii, did the light turn red or amber?
If you haven't done this already, hold the power button until it shuts off, and the light is red. Power it back up and try your remote again.

26PF5521D wont show menu after reseting factory defaults


Switch the TV to analogue mode (if possible)

Press and hold the "MENU" button on the side of the TV. The settings menu should appear. Continue to hold the menu button until this menu disappears. (If you let go before the menu disappears, start again)

The TV should now go blank for up to 2 minutes, and then revert to factory settings and intitial installation screen.

Procede as per original installation.
