I dont kniow how, but my 2yr old son has "stuck" my JVC tv in what i can only call sleep timer mode.
The tv is at least 8-10 yrs old and now It wont return to regular tv mode. The sleep timer LED is on and if i Unplug it it will try to fire back to reg. mode but then reverts to sleep mode with a blacl screen.
I tried leaving it unplugged overnight to wipe the internal memory. But to no avail. Im guessing the thing is just old and screwed but im hopeing there is still hope for my TV yet.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated as i Cannot afford a new TV :(
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.

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.
press display button & it shows the following 07 NOW 12:20 PM SLEEP TIMER OFF/on ON/OFF TIMER EVERYDAY ON TIME 7:00 PM OFF TIME 10:00 PM • The current channel or AV input (Channel 07) • The current time (12:20 pm) • Sleep Timer status/minutes remaining (The Sleep Timer is off) • On/Off Timer status (Set to turn on everyday at 7:00 PM, off at 10:00 PM) • Each Press of the DISPLAY button changes the display mode: Press the SLEEP TIMER button & set it to OFF
The tv must of turned on the timer by itself. They do do that sometimes. I suggest leaving it unplugged for 24 hours to reset itself. If problem persists, you may be able to go to your menu and access the sleep mode timer and set it to 0:00 or OFF
You obviously don't have a menu button on the set itself. Unplug the unit and remove the back cover, this should expose the info you need unless it was placed on the outside and is now lost. Without TV model it will be difficult to get any helpful assistance. Good luck.
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.
Your T.V.s Sleep Timer feature is a programmable automatic timer that will turn your TV off after a certain amount of time. Just reprogam it to the amount of time you want. You probably find that in the menu of your T.V. Thanks!
