Question about Samsung PCL541R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Menu, Channel, Volume buttons are not working

My TV will turn on and off but the menu button that controls the brightness,contrast, language, time settings is disabled along with the ability to change channels or change the current volume....I see from the other postings that a fuse could be the issue...do you think that could also be the issue for me? And if so, how do you go about getting in the TV to check the fuses?

Can you access through the back of the unit? If so make sure unit is unplugged, before going in. Then you should be able to look at the boards.

It sounds like your TV is in Shop Mode.
Shop mode is a set of picture parameters that have been optimized for a store showroom or display floor. Shop mode does not allow you saveicon1.png any picture settings such as brightness or contrast.
To get the TVicon1.png out of Shop Mode press and hold the Menu button on the front panel for three seconds, the picture will blank momentarily then reappear with "Dynamic Mode" shown on the screen. At this point the picture parameters can be changed and saved.
If this method doesn't work for your TV there is an alternate method that might.

From the buttons on the front of the TV (not the remote):
1) Press the Volume + (increase volume) button
2) Whilst the volume button is pressed, press and keep pressed the menu button
3) Let go of the volume button and keep the menu button pressed for 5 seconds
4) After this time the screen should go blank and "Dynamic" will appear at the bottom of the screen.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

How do we adjust color without a remote ?


Hello
If your TV has a "Menu" button on its front panel, press it once to get into its menu option. Surf thorogh and come to the picture control window. There you can see the adjustments. Will be Brightness, Contrast, Colour, Sharpness, Tint etc. Select the option you want to adjust, advance or decrese its parameter by volume Up/Down buttons. If there is no 'Menu' button on its front panel, it will be impossible to adjust these parametes withoug a remote control. OK.

Tv is stuck on aux


Push the "menu"button on the front of the unit. That will get you into the menus to adjust any setting, like caption, language (but that one is tricky if yours happenend to be set to a language you couldn't understand :P), brightness settings and the such are there too. The one you are looking for is "input", change THAT setting. with either volume up/down +/-, or channel up/down (+) (-). In the menu, change the "input" selection to cable or whatever you are trying to watch on the tv.

Hope this helped some, if so, please rate, thank you!



Channel setup
V-Chip Setup
Caption
ect.

Using the Volume + and - along with the Channel up (+) and down(- ) key's, will give you all the adjustments you may need without a remote control.key's, will give you all the adjustments you may need without a remote control.

I had the same problem with a Sylvania SRT2227S. I kept trying to fix it using the remote but after reading your posting I pressed the Volume (down) button, which cycled through the same menus you mentioned. Then I pressed the Power button on the TV and that fixed it.

The problem started for me when pressed PIP, CC, and Guide buttons on a Philips universal remote control. My TV does not support these functions and it seems to put it in this "service mode". Now I can fix it by pressing Volume (down) or Menu then the Power button on the TV (do not use the remote as it is useless when the TV is in this mode). I hope this works for you too.
