Menu Button Does not Bring up the Menu

I have been trying to find a solution to the problems, but the online manual here directs me to page Q1 and Q4. I can't find those pages. Also, the menu button does not bring up any sort of menu. It worked in California, so I don't know why it doesn't now.

Why is screen so dark


Good question and many have tried to deal with this. Sony suggests you 1) go to the manual for this particular set and thereby adjust settings or 2) try replacing the lamp. https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/38985/p/61659,63345,63582/c/65,66/kw/rear%20projection

Here is an link to a pdf of the online manual:

https://docs.sony.com/release/KDF-E3000.pdf

There does not appear to be a consensus on how to fix the problem. Not everyone appears to experience it. Some manual adjustments, others try cabling swaps which abandon HDMI.

Copy down the original setting of any feature before you change it. That enables you to back track out of any trouble.

Others have suggested turning off the automatic dimming feature that taps a light sensor which detects room light.

1) Press the "Menu" button on your remote to load the Sony Bravia system menu.
2) Use the cursor keys to navigate to and select the "Picture Settings" option.
3) Scroll to the "Ambient Sensor" option from the Picture Settings menu and select the "Off" setting.
Adjust the set, (take a look at Advanced settings.)

Notice that there is a reference to a problem with the E3000 model on the following page:

https://sites.google.com/site/sonylcdrptvproblems/

Bear in mind that the first two suggestion were directly from Sony.

Others have had success by turning off in the Advanced settings, the Advanced Contrast Enhancer.

Sony will probably have you unplugging attached devices to check the affect or making swaps with cables. Be sure to check your cable configuration against the what the manual uses.

There is no single fix to this.

How do I program the tv to watch Wii?


You can use your remote to change the video source to the one you have your Wii plugged into on your tv.
  1. Press the Menu button on your remote
  2. Press Enter or the Right Arrow button to access the Setup menu
  3. Use the up/down arrow to select Main Input
  4. Press Enter or the Right Arrow to enter the Main Input menu and then use the Up/Down arrow to select the correct input.
  5. Press Exit to exit the menus and go back to full screen.
Note: The Input you want should be labeled where you plugged in the Wii.
The directions (with pictures) to do this are in the following link to page 25 of the manual for your tv:

Replaced bulb last nite, green light blinks for a min. then it worked! watched a few min.turned on this morning blinking.... wont stop green blink. last nite when i changed bulb tv said change bulb reset...


Many projectors use a lamp hour timer for predicting bulb life so they can give you fair warning of impending failure. Since a bulb may be removed and reinstalled because it is still working or another used lamp installed, the timer is not automatically reset to zero when the lamp is replaced. I surmise your set is complaining because the timer was not reset or the time verified when you changed the bulb.

To fix the problem, buy or borrow a remote control; a universal remote control with a menu button may work. (If you borrow a universal remote from a friend, be sure to record the code for your friend's TV first so you can set it back before returning it.)

You could probably get back into the timer reset menu by removing the new lamp and reinstalling it. Caution: follow the directions on page 68 of the user's manual or the sheet that came with the bulb - let the set cool for an hour first, unplug, and wear gloves when handling the bulb since skin oil can cause discoloration and possibly an explosion when the bulb gets hot. You can download the user's manual from Panasonic's support page for this set.

If you can edit the timer hours instead of just resetting, you may want to set it for the number of hours the new bulb has been used.

It is likely that you can get into the lamp timer menu if the set is in service mode, but the user's manual doesn't tell how to get there (I don't have that info either - it's in the service manual, which may be available online from a third party for a price). Usually it is something like holding a volume or channel button on the front of the TV while turning it on with the remote control. After that you need the code to switch to the timer menu. If you have problems getting into the timer menu, ask your dealer's service department or try calling the Panasonic help line listed on the bottom of page 68: 1-888-VIEW PTV(843-9788).

My Sony Bravia KDF-E50A12U has a ghost effect when I play the ps3 or xbox 360. Strangley my virgin media HD box gives a fantastic picture. I have tried the 360 and ps3 on other tv's and they work fine....


Ok, firstly, disclaimer.

This "solution" utilises a "service" menu, that only trained engineers should use. You are not one, you are an "end user". biggrin.gif So am I, but I paid attention. wink.gif

Use of this information is entirely at your own risk, you mess up your telly, it's your own silly fault. Don't go messing with stuff in there you don't know about.

Ok.

To bring up the "service" menu, put the TV in standby mode, then press in sequence :

Onscreen Display ( the little screen with the i+ in it )
5 ( channel number 5 )
Volume Up ( upper end of volume button )
Analogue ( middle top button )

The TV should switch on and when it's warmed up, you should see a screen with lots of big green lettering on it.

Press the "menu" button ( middle bottom )

Use the direction dial to move down to "LCD Drivers" and press right on the dial to enter this menu.

Move down to "S H Pos Reg R". It should be "10", change it to "11". ( Left/Right to adjust )
Move down to "S H Pos Reg G". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Move down to "SHPos Reg B". It should be "10", change it to "11". (it's on the next "page", keeping scrolling down the menu)

Press the menu button to drop out of the menus, and the standy button to drop to standby. Switch back on, and hopefully your ghosting will be gone.
