Re: model 53uox1ob

I thought there should be are 5 green LED's and one RED one. All of them should be on if the TV is working properly.
There are PICO fuses that blow when a circuit is not working and the assosiated LED will not lite. If a LED is missing it means there is a problem in the circuit and should be fixed prior to replacing the PICO fuse.
A common problem is with CONVERGENCE IC's that go bad. Your set has a MAGIC FOCUS FEATURE that when pressed on the front panel of the TV could be quite entertaining for a youngster. Pressed repeatly
might damage the circuit. The inside LED, lit or not, would point you in this direction.
If you decide to investigate by taking the back off be warned that there are voltages that may cause injury. I would suggest calling a serviceman to determine why your set will not power up and display a picture.

I have Sony Grand Wega KDF-55E2000. While my 3 year grandchild was visiting she was playing with remote and now I have System Status and Path A Status screen displayed that I can't remove. Please help!!!!

The easiest way is by resetting the tv itself back to the factory setting.Just unplug,replug the tv back like about an hour later.This should remove itself.

Sound goes out for certain programs or commercials on different channels, but not all of them

Check your tv's audio settings. If there is an "SAP" button on your remote try hitting that. It stands for secondary audio program. Most manufacturers put it near the corners of the remote leaving it prone to getting hit without knowing. Most shows are broadcast with a spanish version of the audio. Hitting that button should allow you to hear it, but some tv networks do not broadcast the SAP audio making it seem like there is no audio. It usually affects more than one channel, and commercials do not broadcast SAP either.

No sound on some channels

your tv has audio setting called SAP that is for channels that are broadcasting on a second language like spanish, on the channels that do not have this SAP capabilitie you will not hear anything unless you put your tv on stereo mode, so you need to go out of the Sap mode by a button on the remote, check for mts, button , or audio thank you

My tv is on spanish how do i take it off

Spanish on the screen or Spanish through the speakers on some channels? If its the on-screen display that's in Spanish, you pick the language using the setup menu with the remote control. If you're getting Spanish through the speakers, you probably have turned on the SAP (second audio program) function. In some areas with a large enough population, SAP is often used to broadcast program audio in a different language. On channels with no SAP broadcast you don't hear any problems. The SAP function is usually controlled by a button on the remote and probably got pressed by accident.

My tv is stuck on spanish and i don't have the manual and the remote want work anymore all this happened last night please help

It sounds like your SAP (secondary audio program) is on. Can you go into menu by pressing a certain button or buttons on the set? If not, try unplugging overnight or for a few days to see if it will reset.

Hitachi inspire projection tv

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
