Move the remote to another room to test. It is possible a button on the remote is stuck on.

Beyond that , it probably needs to go in for service.

On my pt-50lc14 hdtv my screen is stuck on this message, 5v eeprom), 3.3v (gc2), tv-factory mode

Have you tried any of the reset commands?
Try these....please let me know the result:

Method 1
1. Unit power must be ON and unit must be in STOP mode.
2. Press and hold [CH UP] and [CH DOWN] ON THE UNIT for over five seconds. The unit will turn off.
3. Press [DVD POWER] to turn the unit on.

Method 2
1. Press [STOP, TUNE MODE] on the main unit and [>10] on the remote control at the same time for about 3 seconds until the message "Initialized" disappears from the television screen.
2. Turn the unit off and on again.

Method 3
While the unit is off, press and hold [VOLUME +], [OPEN/CLOSE] and [POWER] on the main unit at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

Method 4
While the main unit is on, press [POWER] on the main unit for more than 4 sec. (All the indicators will blink twice when the main unit is reset.)

Another possibility is to unplug the power cord......wait 30 minutes and plug it back in, possibly repeating the steps above. (Method 1 should reset the unit but maybe trying each of them may be necessary until it is reset.

The message appears to be one that displays when the unit is in a setup mode.

Thank you for your reply.

Perhaps you do not already have the Harmony software installed on your PC?
If not, it's on the CD and you will need the USB cable to connect the remote to PC, but that comes much later after you have constructed a configuration on your Logitec account. Then the 550 should certainly be able to show more than just the welcome message.

You don't really need the CD because you might as well download the latest software version from the Logitec website for 550, install it on PC, and get the full instructions there.

Next register using the software on PC and check that you have the the latest firmware according to the instruction manual. The on-screen guide on PC will lead you through making a configuration for your devices.

None of the buttons on the remote will work!!! dmr ex95v

Try unplugging the dvd player for 30 seconds. Try to turn unit on a couple of times without power (discharges capacitors). Plug it back up and see if that works. It's a shot in the dark, but worth trying.

Is the remote the original remote for the unit? Could try reprogramming for dvd player if it's a universal remote.

Universal remote locked out TV

I was able to get back to using the TV after several frustrating tries at finding the right combination of searches and pressing buttons. The function I was able access was not a function I could get to with the remote suppilied with the TV. And once stuck in this mode nothing would clear it Turns out that the power button gave me channel 8 and the #1 button gave me this display calibration? function. Obviously not using the right code. Never the less all is well with the TV and I got my VCR working with the $2.99 remote and I will attempt the other units TV and Magnasonic DVD later when I have regained my composure.

RCA remote

Could it be possible that the remote needs reconfigured? If none of the buttons work, the it could possibly be that you need to re-enter the TV code back into the remote.
