    Thank you for the response. I did turn the TV off but when I turn it on again the screen is still blue. My original remote was broken so I bought a cheap replacment that works for vol and channel changes but it doesn't do much more. The TV is still good, I have Direct TV runnning the service????

  • dolfan Feb 08, 2008

Hi,

Do the reset test.I give this 50/50 chance of clearing it up. Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

Goodluck,

    well i am trying my best to give you a solution for it but i don't think it will solve your problem cuz u will need an original one..
    Anyways wait for an hour and ill let u know if there is any solution to your problem..

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Hold down the menu key on the remote for 8 seconds to switch it out of that
    mode or back in again.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Hold the "Display" and "Video Status" buttons
    on the remote simultaneously. The set will bring up a service menu.


    Press the MENU and INFORMATION buttons down together and then press 1
    then 2 then 3 while still holding the first 2 buttons down.

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Now the those two are the only solutions to solve your problem.If these don't work you have to buy a new remote..

  • Priya darshan Feb 09, 2008

    Right now you have a cheap replacement one so i want you to try it on that first if it doesn't work then go for the direct TV one..

My toshiba flatscreen says retail unlock on it an it wont do nothyn.. how i fix it without original remote


You can reset and eliminate the lock on some televisions without the remote.. Hold the power button for five seconds. The television will automatically restart. If the lock is still on, unplug the television and remove the battery from the back panel of the television. Wait several hours before reconnecting the plug and reattaching the battery.

You say you have a Universal remote. If you have not done so yet use the procedures that came with your remote to install it on your Toshiba. After using the install procedures you should at least be able to power on and off the TV.

power the TV on and then do the following:

TOSHIBA specific advertisements or "Retail Lock" at anytime when operating, perform the following procedure:
  1. Using the remote control, press 1, 2, 3, 4 in this order. This will release the "Retail Lock" mode.
  2. Perform a factory reset of the TV
  3. Resetting Factory Defaults:
To reset all settings and channels to their factory default values:
1 Press the MENU button and open the Installation menu.
2 Highlight Reset TV, and then press the ENTER button.
3 Enter your PIN code (If a PIN code has been set).
4 A con?rmation screen appears. Select Yes, and press the ENTER button. The TV will turn off automatically.
Then do the following:
  1. Power on the TV. You will be prompted to perform the first time setup.
  2. Be sure to set the Location option to Home.
  3. Continue with the first time setup.
The "Retail Lock" should be disabled and you can now use all the functions of the TV.


hope that helps

My matsui tv 28WNO5(A) will not turn on from standby


Try pressing the small reset button on the back, it works, and you will not loose any stored information which caused the unit to go in the stand by mode.

or
Have you tried turning it off for an hour and then turning it back on. This happens to me quite often and leaving it off for a while ususally allows it to come back on. Also have you tried to press the TV/AV button on the remote as sometimes it switches to TV mode when its on standby and then standby won't work as its on TV mode and needs to go back on to AV mode. Basically just press the AV button on the digibox remote and then try standby.

or
if the batteries are removed and left for about 20 minutes before being replaced again, everything works as it should.
or
if any of the above suggestions does not work then you have to open the unit and on the main board of the tv there is a thin mini tube light like component called fuse you will have to replace that fuse .the fuse is very very cheap and you can easily get it at any electronics shop.and if still the unit does not work then there is a major fault in the power supply board and should be taken to the service center for diagnosing the fault that it is repairable or not.but i hope the above information provided will definately help you to solve your problem.

My rca truflat tv is stuck on fpa lock mode and I don't have the remote. How can I unlock it?


Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:

1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

I have Onida TV Model 21 inch , I accidentally enable the features of volume lock, hotel mode and channel lock and I cannot reset the same. Due to this, I cannot increase volume of telivision


MIGHT WORK IF YOU:
Turn off tv with remote, that is standby, then turn off tv with switch or unplug from wall. Wait a few minutes until led lights go off on tv. plug tv back in. try pushing vt on remote and power button on tv at same time.
If this doesn't work try contacting a local retailer, they always have a list of codes for their salesmen.

The television stays in closed caption mode regardless of the settings. Is there a way to reset it to factory default


try turning off the caption through the remote of the menu. to reset it to factory settings, go to menu, then settings, then there should be an option to reset the tv. If this doesn't work look through your manual. Sometimes you have to hold the power button for some length of time or the menu button on the tv. if these methods don't work, tell me the model and make of the tv.

Rca 27'' tv set can't acess cable chanels with remote or tv buttons tv was in fpa mode by mistake got out of fpa mode but when i push tv buttons lock on again


Hello
Just unlock its FPA by any one of below mentioned process. Reset the V-Chip settings later and try.
Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.

4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

Any one amoung the above process will unlock your GE TV. After unlock, you have to do the Vchip-Set.

OK in these manuals above you should find, all the information, to reset any codes, the child lock, is most likely on, you need to disable it.
With the TV turned on, simultaneously press VOLUME down button on the front of the TV set and the number 7 button on the remote control to reset pin code and customer ID.
If that above doesn't work, try below.

CHILDLOCK Press ANY NUMB 3 TIMES, THEN PRESS VOL- ON SET & "7" ON R/C FOR 5 SECS this should disable it.
