Service menu? My service menu on my TV kept coming up Im not sure if my baby got hold of the remote which he usually finds a way to and is some genious to getting the service menu to come up but I would just hit exit 2 times and it would go away... no problems... Well my husband took the initiative and decided to MESS with it and now I cant use the ps3 or the dvd player because when I try to press input it wont go to anything else besides what its set to. I have tried to look up online and tried about 5 different ways to get back to the service menu everything you all said plus a few others online I had found (not that it would really do me any good because I really dont know what the settings are supposed to be set to in the first place) PLEASE help!!

    the cables with the dvd player and the ps3 are properly connected to the back of the tv and was fine before all of this. when I push the input button the tv just blibks and stays on the same channel its on.. kind of like its the only input so instead of it changing to the next video or whatever it just stays on the same. I can get to the menu settings and display

    Check cables run from ps3 to tv and dvd to tv, and tell me where they are going to. What happens exactly when you push input button? Make sure Ps3 is on and running same with dvd when pressing input button, can you press your menu button and get menu on tv display?

    make sure slider on remote is set on tv on tv/catv switch
    if you press the game button does it tell that mode is on and what input does it select?
    input button should cycle modes I can't see how this can be blocked out, did you try premtech's solution to reset this block?...I guess you just did

    Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Dec 01, 2007
    You want it on then can you cycle input?

    Unplugging the power cord for an hour may help, but to do a full reset you must leave it unplugged or 3 or 4 hours. That will restore all the internal soft codes to the factory default settings.
    Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Dec 01, 2007
    Does that mean you can now get the game working?

    Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Dec 01, 2007
    Sound like the power off reset might be the plan here otherwise

    Jand,
    Try unplugging the Tv for about 15 minutes then plug it back in and power it up. That should clear the micro of any settings lock and restore the Tv to factory settings. Then see if you can change to your different inputs.

    Sorry I wasnt sure how to repost the question. I just wanted to be sure that everything I had tried already would post as well. I need to get back to the service menu that a professional would use instead of opening up the whole tv thats the servie menu that came up my husband seems to think he will be able to figure out what he had pressed by we cant even get to the service menu anymore. This service menu just popped up I just simply would hit exit twice and exit out of it.

    Jenny Dec 01, 2007

    These are codes I already tried to get to the service menu that havent worked:



    JVC:

    Newer ones with the full colour menus...

    Go into the menu, select CLOCK SET, and you will get the clock set
    menu. Set the clock to 3:21 AM. As soon as you select "Start Clock",
    you see a flashing "THANK YOU". WHILE THIS IS STILL FLASHING hit MUTE
    then UP/DOWN. You will then be in a service menu which will let you
    change all kinds of neat things.









    5.11 JVC TELEVISIONS

    Read the _ SERVICE MODE WARNING _ before proceeding.

    With TV powered ON press: [DISPLAY] and [VIDEO STATUS] on the remote at the same time.

    -or-

    Press the [SLEEP TIMER] key and set the SLEEP TIMER for "0" MIN. While the SLEEP TIMER information is still on screen, press the [DISPLAY] key and [VIDEO STATUS] key of the remote control unit at the same time to enter the SERVICE MENU.

    Exit the service menu by twice pressing the [EXIT] key on the remote.






    THIS ONE I DONT EVEN HAVE A PICTURE MODE:

    1. TV turned on
    2. Press the 'Display' and 'Picture Mode' keys at the same time, on the remote.

    You are now in the Adjustment mode

Service Menu if nothing worked yet. Try Press the sleep timer key for 0 min. Then press the display key and video status key of the remote control unit at the same time to enter the Service Menu. Then press up or down key of the menu to select the items that you are looking for. Exit key will return to previous screen.

Hello, i would like to know if resetting the lamp timer on an LG MW60sz12 will allow you to get more time out of it?? also if it is possible, how do you reset it???


Hi there,

Quick answer = NO.

As projection TV lamps generally have a life somewhere between 3,000 - 6,000hrs (depending on lamp quality/type), the lamp timer is simply there to assist you in determining when the current lamp is due for replacement.

Resetting the lamp timer has no effect what so ever, on the longevity of the lamp.

The Lamp Timer Reset function is hidden within the Service menu and as such, technicians are usually the only ones who are authorised to reset the timer.

However, the following procedure has been known to reset LG lamp timers:

1. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the TV front panel.
2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.
4. Release the remote MENU button first, then the TV MENU button.
5. While holding that button, press and hold the MUTE button on the remote.
6. Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV front panel.
7. Hold both buttons until the Lamp Life Hours show up on your TV screen.
8. Release the MUTE button first, then the ENTER button on the TV front panel.
9. Make a note of the lamp hours if you want.
10. To reset the lamp hours, press the SELECT button (the one between the four arrow keys with two concentric circles on it) on your remote.
11. It will ask you to confirm the reset--press SELECT again to confirm

Hi there,

One possible solution to access the service menu on LG tv's is as follows with steps 1 - 4:

1. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the TV front panel.
2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.
4. Release the remote MENU button first, then the TV MENU button.
If you are looking to reset the lamp indicator then continue with the following steps 5 - 11:

5. Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV front panel.
6. While holding that button, press and hold the MUTE button on the remote.
7. Hold both buttons until the Lamp Life Hours show up on your TV screen.
8. Release the MUTE button first, then the ENTER button on the TV front panel.
9. Make a note of the lamp hours if you want.
10. To reset the lamp hours, press the SELECT button (the one between the four arrow keys with two concentric circles on it) on your remote.
11. It will ask you to confirm the reset--press SELECT again to confirm.

To verify you've reset the hours, you can repeat steps 1-9 above and then just press the EXIT button on your remote.

Hope this helps. Regards, James.
