SOURCE: VCR doesn't work

The DVD has to be off so that it allows the VCR signal to pass through. Also make sure the VCR's output is set to channel 3 (little tiny slide switch in the back by the VCR's antenna jacks).

SOURCE: Basic Set-up

Most VCRs have a simple slide switch, usually on the back of the unit. Just slide the switch towards "4"

SOURCE: The remote isn't working (and, yes, I tried new

I ran into a very similar problem with a TV that I had that did not have a TV/VCR button on it. You HAD to have a remote to change it and the remote for the TV had been LONG lost. The solution was to go to Target or Walmart, and pick up a cheap universal remote. Make sure that the universal remote has a TV/VCR button on it and when you get the right code plugged into the remote it will function just like the original remote.

Blue on the screen of the tv

I had whole redish/pinkish screen on my 50v500 starting a few days ago, then I read through each of the threads on this site for the samilar problems on my model. I found TVtechmaniac's solution (pasted below) solved my problem. Thank you TVtechmaniac!

Enter the I2C Service Menu, be sure the power is OFF.
1. On the front control panel, press and hold the INPUT button.
2. Then press the POWER button for two seconds.
3. You may keep the INPUT button depressed until you see the OSD with the Service Menu displayed.
4. If you don't see the service menu, please repeat Process making sure you wait until the Power blinking LED stops.
5. Execute the Memory Initialize operation after the adjustment values have been written on a sheet of paper. Highlight "MEMORY INTI", arrow to the right and hold the button to the right (approx 5 sec.) until a check mark appears in the box. This activates the Memory Initialization.
6. After the Memory initialize operation has finished (10~15 sec, the channel will revert to CH 3.) the pink image symptom should be fixed.
7. Write back the adjustment values from your notes to their respective adjustment parameters in the adjustment mode. (In other words, set the Data Values back to the the Data values written down before the Memory Initialization procedure). NOTE: Make sure the SELECT Button is pressed on remote after every change to the values. Failure to do so will result in the data values not being changed.
8. Exit I2C menu. Press exit repeatedly until you go back to the normal picture.

Change the aspect ratio


you can set the aspect on either remote. the best thing to do is set the proper aspect on the tv remote for regular (sd) channels, and then again for hd channels. the tv should remember these aspect settings and revert to them when you switch back and forth from sd to hd. if you have satelite, there is usually another aspect on there you can change depending on the program, but i usually recommend leaving it alone. if you are on an hd channel with side bars, switch to the sd version instead of changing aspect so you dont have to keep flipping it back and forth.

When we have a power bump the unit reverts back to factory settings, Can a ups be added to the control board to eliminate this problem?


Not sure why your unit would reset to factory settings, it's usually the thermostat settings that control the unit and resets when you have a power failure. Most thermostats have a battery in then to power the thermostat during a power failure. They usually only maintain the power from 15 to 30 minutes to maintain your settings, before defaulting back to factory settings. After every power failure you usually have to replace the batteries.

WS-55515 Loss of sound and HD blue screen


First check set for problems by:This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. Self-diagnosis error 2-3 indicating deflection failure. Check for shorted or leaky Q5A37 part # 260P818050 located on PCB-Main. If found defective replace only the transistor instead of the Main PCB.
