Question about Televison & Video
My tv won't shut off with the remote or by the button on the tv. What can I do?
Have you tried unplugging the set for several minutes and then plugging it back in?
There is a separate circuit in the TV that turns the set on & off with either the front panel button or remote. The front power button does not switch the 110V directly.
The circuit could be either be a relay or solid state switch that turns on the main power supply.
It sounds like you have a problem with that circuit and you'll need to take the set in to be serviced.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

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.
