Some of the older sets with PIP require only the original remote to operate or turn on and off.
The PIP board usually develops problems with surface mounted caps and there is a "modification" where traces are cut and two 4.7 mfd caps inserted which will bypass the PIP board from the set--a model number would tell me if this is possible in your set or not--you missing the original remote? Almost any Mitsubishi remote of the era with PIP controls should do the job.
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.
I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree. To change your PiP settings:
Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
Select PIP and press Enter.
Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again. Note: If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button. Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button. Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to. Note: You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.
Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.
Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.
If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.
If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.
Many TV functions can be controlled from the on-screen menus using buttons on the TV itself. These include all kinds of settings however Sony did not include PIP in these menus. Therefore a valid remote is required to operate PIP. One thing you could try is removing the cable from the secondary input on the TV which provides the signal for the other picture. Without an input signal PIP may be disabled. Also, try buying a universal remote and setting the proper code for your TV. Original remote could be hard to find but remotes.com may have one.
When you go into the menu to choose the PIP source the PIP comes on to confirm that a valid source has been selected. It is normal for the PIP to close when the menu is exited. To display the PIP normally you will need a remote with a PIP button. Most universal remotes today have PIP functions but if you get a Zenith original replacement then you are guaranteed to enjoy the other PIP features such as size, position, freeze and swap.
I had this problem with a universal remote.I tried everything you can think of.Finally I got it.I hit the setup button on top of tv and the volue down button to start the demo.I dont know exactly how long it ran but after awhile I hit a button and screen was normal...Yeah
