Question about Philips Televison & Video
While changing the geometry settings in the service menu of my philips 32pw9551. The TV decided it didnt like them, and now the image shuts down within a few seconds. I suspect the vertical slope and or vertical amplitude settings to be the problem. I cant change them back without an image to delve in the service menu. Is there a hard reset possible (either mechinal or by buttons)?

Data sheets are available for most models. These sheets list a description for each
item as well as data range and typical settings for your model. If your setting is
substantially different than the sheet then you may be developing a problem. you want to go into deflection mode and look for pincushion items i.e pin amp,bow etc. AND don`t forget to write down original values
