Re: Accessing menu without a remote

You will need to get an original replacement remote or the original to access the menu. An original replacement remote for this TV set is not cheap! You can see what you need here
Good Luck

Reset tv without the remote

Depends on the TV. Get the instruction manual for the TV.
Sounds like you want to reset the TV control parameters to factory default.
This can often be done by manually accessing the menu using the buttons on the TV.

How do i adjust the magic focus?

  • Press "Menu" on the remote select the "Magic Focus" option in the Video menu or press the "Magic Focus" button on the front panel to adjust the convergence of the three picture tubes that create the proper color for the picture. Pressing the button on the TV initiates the automatic adjustment, and accessing the feature through the Video menu allows you to choose automatic or manual adjustment, though the "Automatic" setting must be selected for the button on the front of the TV to begin the process.

    Red Hue

    Go into the service menu and turn down the red push and red cut a few notches. Write down every value in the service menu and be careful to make sure you don't change anything else. Also, turn down the brightness a couple of clicks and the red glow will be gone.

    Or, try this - Press Mute on the remote control twice, press Mute a third time and keep holding at the same time, press the Menu button on the TV front panel. If you do it correctly, you will see a small S on the screen. Congrats, you are in service mode. Press Menu on the remote to get to the adjustable settings. Be careful not to change anything without writting the original value down first. Also be careful of hitting other buttons on the remote. To reduce red push, Use the channel up down button until it says RCUT. Adjust the value using the volume button on the remote. I recommend setting RCUT to 80H, which is the preset value according to the service manual. To exit Service Mode, simply power off the TV. Good luck.

    How to adjust brightness

    You don't say anything about the brand, but most have a menu or setup button on the remote (and TV) which give an on-screen display of functions available. You should see one for picture adjustments. Perhaps the projection bulb is getting old and dim. This is another possibility.

    I have a pioneer elite pro 100 projection tv. the picture seems to be getting darker and darker. and the color seems to be fading as well what could be wrong? and i havent tried to turn up the brightness...

    hi..first check it out the brightness.It is available in the
    menu button,available on the top of the tv.If it still doesnt
    work Projection TVs have a high intensity lamp as the light
    source. They wear out and gradually get dim.You probably
    need to replace it.
    check it out..
    thank u..
