Question about Pioneer PDP-5060HD 50 in. Plasma Television

Timer on television

I purchased a used television with no paperwork. There is a timer set to turn off the television and we have no idea how to change or get rid of the setting. The menu button on the remote doesn't work and we figured the settings would be accessed through there. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In addition to a Sleep Timer, many TVs have an Off Timer, too. Check for other automatic settings and timer settings. If you use the TV as a monitor for a computer, the sleep setting on the computer might affect the operation of the TV.

Welcome to FixYa.

Check the Wake-Up timer settings of the TV. The TV may be set-up to turn on at a specific time or time intervals. Go to the timer settings of the TV by accessing the timer option from the MENU.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Model 6626lct turns picture off in ten minutes.

This can happen for 2 reasons. One is that some TVs are equipped with a set up that will turn the set off if no input source is detected ( cable, antenna etc...) Check all connections. The most likely cause is the TIMER settings. Use your remote to access your menu, then TV settings, then into Timer (sleep timer). Set the sleep timer function to off ( or "0" on and "0" off) This should do it.
