Question about Apex Digital AT2702 27" TV

2 Answers

The power went out in our area, and when it came back on. The television only displays a RED KEY. None of the remote or manual buttons worked at all. I checked in the back and their was no reset buttons that I could find. Could it be the spliter from the cable feed? The ball is in your court. Thanks Terry

    The first solution did not work. As I mentioned to the expert. None of the buttons/functions do not work, weather it be on the tv or remote. We still have the red key on the television.

Hi.

The red key means that the TV is in protect mode. This happens when an internal fault is detected.
I assume that you already tried disconnecting the TV for a while.
Basic troubleshooting explained here:Why my TV does not start up and remains in...

If after many tries of switching on and off sometimes tv stays on, then problem is likely a faulty PSU.

The best way to contact an authorized technician is by ringing the number listed on the owners manual. Alternatively try Fixya directory here Fixya directory- Consumer Products Repair

Try first the troubleshooting proposed in link above. If that does not work, ring customer service.

Regarding the repair cost, this depends on the part that is defective.
As said the technician must test internal parts to find out why TV is in protect mode.A repair that involves parts replacement may start at $150/$200

For parts try Partstore or ShopJimmy

Regards.

Red key means that the tv is locked - to unlock it hit the menu button until system is highlighted in red, then scroll down until parental guide is highlighted red. Once highlighted enter the default code of 6688 on the number pad to turn it off.

    If none of the keys work at all then the problem is hardware - the control processor has been fried by the power surge. This is a very critical part, that should be replaced only by a professional and it will be expensive.  Get a quote before accepting the repair, it may end up costing more that what the tv is worth.

I bought your RCA universal remote that controls 4 devices. The code list does not list my Magnavox DVD/VCR combo (MWD2205). When I went to the website listed on the back of the remote...


http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-tv.shtml#tv

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or yourbrand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, trythe following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when youreach the end of all the codes for this device type.
  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing thefollowing steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keysor press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock inyour new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat stepsthrough 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the newfeature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

· Set the "Mode Switch" to TV.
· Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
· Enter the 5 digit Code above.
· Try your new code and tell us how it worked!
You'll have to settle for that, use the middle power key in the tv device to power on & off the tv.

Picture went off still had sound then i turned off at panel now only red timer/standy stays lit sony 61" projection


First plug in again and look at led light, the amount it blinks tells what is wrong. Then if it stays lite it tells something also. You can try Display-channel 5-volume +- Power(service mode). Then Channel 8-enter(test reset). If this doesn't work then you will have to replace somethings like F601, R607, Q601, IC601, R612, VDR601.

Try pressing the disply button and hold for three to 4 seconds. This is a quick way of locking all functions also .. Once the set is working press display and hold to relock it or to unlock it. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this thread.
