PRIMA HT2778P pin-cushioned blue screen - service menu reset needed

I Turned on the TV in the AM to find the picture dramatically pin-cushioned. I played with the settings but to no avail. I then 'explored' the various menus in the service menu structure and evidently changed the wrong setting as the picture went black for a moment then upon returning only displayed a blue screen - still greatly pin-cushioned. Is there a way to reset the TV to the factory service menu default settings so I can at least see the picture? I tried leaving the TV off and unplugged for a day but that did not change anything. I live in the Colorado Mountains and getting TV service is a challenge.

Thank You.

Try this one:


1. Unplug your power cord from the box (NOT THE
WALL!)
2. Wait 3-5 min... No more than 5 MIN (very important)
3. Hold down the power and select button at the same time and don’t let go.
4. Have someone plug the power back in… and keep holding the power and select button.
5. Don’t let go until it gets to 0 (it's about 5 min)
6. Once it gets to 0 then it will stop counting down, that when you let go!!
7. Don’t touch anything,
8. The screen will reset and it will go blank. nad that's it

Hope that helps....

Unfortunately with brands like this they are known as throw away tv's to begin with so even if you did want to have it serviced it still would probably not be worth it. Also getting parts for tv's from companies like this are even harder. I would recommend replacement. You can sell your old units for parts on craigslist or ebay.
Hope this helps, I would hate for you to waste money a new unit comes with a warranty.
Thanks,
Lee

I have Prima TK 2951 CRT TV AND i have vertical problem. Which capacitor i should change to fix picture from sides have corregations from down to up


You're talking about the pin cushion distortion; I presume. If this is the case, there is a separate circuit to adjust pin cushion distortion. Contact any service technician to rectify this problem. This is a skilled work. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

sounds like you need a new remote. that circuit board is not too happy when it's crushed in like that. You might be able to make it work, but don't count on it.

Prima TV mod. HT2778P


Being that this is a very generic brand. These tv's are known as "throw aways" as when they break they are cheaper to throw away and replace.The companies offer little to no support. This tv will require professional service. If you need assistance contacting a professional near you to have it serviced please let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution.
