Go into menu, scroll down to captions, press right arrow until off is highlighted, then press enter on the remote, you should have normal TV viewing. Some remotes have a separate button for captions.

I have a sony (model KP61V75) a split screen came on (two pictures) and I cannot figure out how to get it back to one screen. Im going crazy!

Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.


  • Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.

  • If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.

My akai tv is set on full screen

You should have a button on the remote that came with the TV labeled: format , ratio , wide , picture , somthing like that, different brands of TVs call it different things and I am not familiar with the Akai branded TVs, but when you find it just press it as many times as needed to make the picture look as you want it to.
Good luck !

Forgot code to unlock channels. How to unlock?

After you set the lock, you will need the secret code in order to:
• view a locked program,
• view the locked TV, or
• cancel the lock.
If you forget the code, you can view the locked TV without entering the code. To do this, simply
press the buttons on your remote labeled "QV" and "9" at the same time whenever your secret
code is requested. Unlocking theTV this way is temporary.
To change or permanently cancel the lock:
I. Turn on your TV. If the TV requests your secret code, press
and_ at the same time.
2. Press _ to view the main menu.
3. Use the • o rV to select ..V..-Ch p Parent Lock and press ENTER .
4. The on-screen display will ask for your current passcode. Press
and _ at the same time.
5. The on-screen display will now ask you to enter a new code:
• To cancel the passcode permanently, press _ or _ .
• To change to a new passcode, use the number buttons to enter a
new code, then press E_R,
You must use the remote control included with this
TV. You cannot use a remote control from another
Mitsubishi component and you cannot use "Univer_
sar' remotes from other manufacturers.

Picture partially cropped at bottom of screen

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

Piece of s@#t!

Sounds like you  accidentally "set" the parental lock while you were sleeping.

Try this trick: (may or may not work)

aim the remote at the TV "IR sensor", hold down "display button" on the remote for 10 seconds to erase or clear the password.

"IF" this works go into the menu and "TURN OFF" parental control.
