The remote may not be programmed with the right code. Sometimes this may happen.

    Weird, ok, trying again. When you unplugged it and plugged it back in, did the Red, Blue, Green, Black and Gray keep repeating? The second you turn it on it starts in this loop? Did the PIP button on the same remote used to function correctly? Also what is the make / model of the TV you have?

    Thanks

    When I plug the TV in the screen goes black and reads "digital TV" which is normal. Then it goes back into the loop. The PIP button on my universal remote never worked, or at least I never could get it to work. The model is Emerson LC329EMX

    Hmm I see, and do any buttons seem to respond whatsoever, either on the TV itself or the remote? It sounds like it is stuck in some kind of a service mode. Are you certain the model # LC329EMX is correct? I have no reference to that number at all, and when you do a google search for it, not a single result comes back, which is very very unusual. How old is this TV? I am looking for ways to get it out of that service mode, but it may require a call to Emerson to see if someone internally knows...

    Still check, also do you have the original remote for the TV or just that universal one?

    Also, you have pressed the PIP button before it sounds like, but this has never happened before I assume?

    Strange stuff indeed,
    Tim

  • candacet_201 Sep 17, 2010

    Im Sorry the Model Numer is LC320EMX, The TV is only about a year old. I have indeed pressed the PIP button before, and it would bring up a small box in the top left hand corner of the screen. I can't recall exactly what was in it, but I remember numbers seperated by colon's, and it said digital signal or something like that. Usually I would just press menu and it would go away. This particular time out of curiosity I pressed the up and down arrows the numbers moved, and BAM curiosity killed the cat or should I say the TV.

My flat screen Sylvania TV is flashing different colors what's wrong


Better late than never. The problem is that your TV is in the service mode. There are many ways this can happen. But, lets just get down to fixin this! With the original remote and the TV on. If the TV will not shut off, do this. Press the left cursor button on the remote, followed with pressing the right cursor. Power off the TV with remote, or press off button on TV.

Secondly, your TV will power on and off. But you have flashing colors. Do this. With the original remote and TV on. Press the up cursor button, on the remote, followed with pressing the down cursor. Power off TV with remote, or press off power of TV. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

I fell asleep on my Emerson LC320EMX 32 hdtv remote; when I awoke, the tv was flashing ONLY colors (red, black,blue,white)...Now, How do I get it out of that mode....I was told its stuck in set-mode ?


I had this problem with the LC320EMX, after extensive searching on the internet, I found a solution. The TV has entered some kind of test pattern, to escape from the flashing color test pattern do the following:
While the screen is changing from red,green,Blue,White, & Black, and is Unresposive, Take your factory remote, Press the up arrow, then the down arrow, then (ON THE TV) press the power button. Turn the set back on and it should be functioning properly. (BTW: the set gets into this test pattern if you press too many buttons on the remote, or if you use a universal remote with the wrong code)

I think you accidentally turned on some kinda of test pattern. Try pressing the Input button on the TV itself or the menu button. Sorry that is the best I can do.

I CANT GET OFF THE SET UP SCREEN , MANGNAVOX 47" TV, NO UNIV. REMOTES HAVE WORKED, PRESS THE GREEN BUTTON TO PROCEED?


The TV was turn ON for the first time or the TV reboot/reset.
Universal remotes are not as "universal" as we like them to be. They only control a very, small amount of options for the TV.

You'll need the remote that came with the TV to fix this problem because it has the special RED, GREEN, YELLOW, and BLUE buttons you need.
If you don't have the original remote, you can get one at this web site. It's the best price going right now. $29.95
