Question about Emerson SpongeBob SquarePants TV

TV will not come on with remote or power button

My grandson's hand hit the remote while he was laying on the floor, putting the TV in the sleep mode. The TV timed out, powered itself down, and now will not turn on using the remote or the main power switch on the TV. The red light that is located beside the power button is on indicating that there is power applied to the TV set. What is needed to power the TV on. Is it a password or sequence of buttons being pushed or what?

The following instructions are for the Emerson EWC1303/1903 tv/vcr. That's the closest match I could find to the Spongebob Squarepants 13' TV
If it's actually in Sleep mode, do the following:

TO CANCEL THE SLEEP TIMER
Press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button on the remote
control until “SLEEP TIMER” appears.
To view the time left for sleep timer press the WAKE
UP/SLEEP button twice, then press the MENU button
on the remote control to exit the sleep timer setting


If unsuccessful, try unplugging the TV for 1/2 hour, then plug it in and try turning it back on either manually or with the remote. Either of these should solve your problem. Best of luck to you!

HERE'S THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEM:

I think the problem has nothing to do with your TV. I bet the culprit lies on the setting of your remote control. Maybe you set your remote into a sleep mode. When a TV has set into a sleep mode. It's power on light is still red but doesn't work. So all you've got to do is keep pressing the sleep button. After a few presses, it will definitely work. And, you can now enjoy your day watching TV. Thanks.

Hello
Panasonic TV's after 1996 can be set to "Serviceman Mode" with the
following remote control sequence:

-select the SET-UP icon and select CABLE mode.
-select the TIMER icon and set the SLEEP timer for 30 minutes.
-press the ACTION button twice to get out of the menus.
-change to channel 124.
-adjust the volume to minimum (0).
-Hit the VOL down button on the TV itself (not on
the remote) and a red "CHK" should appear in the upper corner.
-press the ACTION and VOLUME DOWN buttons (again, on the
TV, not the remote) you will toggle between AGING and SERVICEMAN modes.

Select Serviceman mode. The POWER button on the remote control will
select one of the five Serviceman Adjustment modes.

The modes are:

B - Serviceman VCJ SUB Adjustments. These include sub-tint,
sub-color, sub-brightness, sub-contrast, colorkiller/ABL/gamma,
audio and video adjustment, and vertical size.

C - Serviceman VCJ Cut-off adjustments. These include Red, Green
and Blue cut-off, red and blue drive, automatic fine tuning
(AFT), RF AGC (RF gain control), horizontal center, beam limit,
etc.

S - Serviceman Options Adjustments. These involce the PIP and
clock.

M - Serviceman MTS (Stereo/SAP) adjustments.

CHK - the mode you first entered. Normal picture and sound, lets
you check things over and still have a hotkey into the
service menu.

There is one more adjustment that isn't in the five modes, it's
global. When in either the yellow or red CHK mode, you can press
RECALL on the remote control to enter the purity field check mode.
This lets you select a pure white, red, green, or blue screen. A
good thing to walk away from if you just want to temporarily freak
out the floor manager, but it will be fixed as soon as the TV is
turned off. Oh well.

To get out of Serviceman mode, press ACTION and POWER on the
receiver simultaneously for at least 2 seconds. The TV will momentarily
shut off and then comes back on.

My grandson got hold of the tv remote and turned the pip feature on. we cannot turn it off. help!


Hey there..I had a PIP problem for the last 6 weeks and just solved it with this tip. The solution was in front of me all the time.

Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you

Sleep Timer on remote does not work


First try to access the sleep timer menu from the controls on the TV to verify the TV is working.

If that works then the remote has the problem.
Now try this;
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
If this does not work, then you may need a new remote unit.

Dell w2600 wont turn


Same problem, this is my solution. The system will start everytime if starting from power off one starts from sleep. Thus the trick is to use sleep mode to shut it down. I do not use the sleep function on the remote (it would be worth a try, let me know if you do that), but rather I have chose VGA as the entry signal ad have hooked the TV to my PC, and then I put the PC in sleep mode. The TV will do the same. When it is in sleep mode through the PC, the system cvomes back to life if the remote from the cable is used to change channels.
