I have a "One for All" brand universal remote, and it has a "TV/VID" button near the left bottom corner that controls the game mode. Had the same problem, and just figured that out.

I think you would have to turn off the sleep timer mode completely or increase its ON time span, say to 4 hours or so
or the lenth of time you have the TV on for. If that does not fix it then it sounds like a STANDBY MODE fault problem.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: sanyo stuck on video mode

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!

SOURCE: Durabrand TV stuck on AUX mode

You can program a Comcast remote to work with the TV. Press the "TV" button on the Comcast remote. Then, hold down the "Setup" button until the red light blinks 3 times. Enter a 5 digit code:
These are the Durabrand codes: 10171 10463 10180 10178 11034
The 10171 code worked for my Durabrand DWT1905. Then use the TV/VCR button located beneath the "7" to switch inputs.

The tv has been accidentally set for "demo mode". Press the volume up and volume down buttons in front of the TV at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds untill the demo disappears or sometimes the TV will turn off. You should regain control of the TV after this.

SOURCE: I have a TruFlat RCA

Try this -

  1. Press menu for main menu.
  2. Press CH + or CH - to highlight preferences.
  3. Press "OK" to enter preferences submenu.
  4. Press CH + or CH - to high light "FPA"
  5. Press VOL + or VOL - to turn the FPA on or off.
  6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit.
  7. Back to normal
  • FPA stands for Front Panel Lock. It makes it so kids don't push all the buttons on the front of your TV. The power button on the TV will still work and the remote will still function as normal.

Regards, Tony

Sony tv model kvf25mn2d locked on sleep mode,without a remote how do i reset the tv from sleep mode?

Without a remote control; you can't. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites.
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some on-line sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

Wait 30 seconds and then
turn on again. If this happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.

Tv shuts itself off randomly (sleep mode problem)

This is wierd the kids played with your remote and you cannot get it out of sleep mode. Well here is somthing to try. You would take back cover off but here is the disclaimer (HIGH VOLTAGE INSIDE CAN CAUSE INJURY INCLUDEING DEATH) iF YOU NOT QUALIFIED OTAKE IT TO A TECH IF ITS SOMETHING MNOR IT WILL BE DONE WHILE YOU WAIT AND WILL NOT CHARGE YOU OUT THE YANG FOR A FEE. But if you inclined chekc the power supply unit and see if it is giving the correct current to the TV if not replace it.

TV will not come on with remote or power button

The following instructions are for the Emerson EWC1303/1903 tv/vcr. That's the closest match I could find to the Spongebob Squarepants 13' TV
If it's actually in Sleep mode, do the following:

Press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button on the remote
control until “SLEEP TIMER” appears.
To view the time left for sleep timer press the WAKE
UP/SLEEP button twice, then press the MENU button
on the remote control to exit the sleep timer setting

If unsuccessful, try unplugging the TV for 1/2 hour, then plug it in and try turning it back on either manually or with the remote. Either of these should solve your problem. Best of luck to you!

Panasonic CT - 27G13 - Menu is on Demonstration Mode

Is it a factory remote or a universal? Chances are that only the factory remote will send the special code when both buttons are pressed.

Did you try pressing the up-arrow + Exit on the front of the TV instead of the remote?

Black bars on top and bottom of screen

It sounds as if you have accidentally entered widescreen mode. Explore the on screen menu to find the widescreen option & switch it back.
