Question about Flat Panel Televisions
Posted by bessylou4 on Aug 12, 2008Report abuse
The tv turns itself back on, some times, when I turn it off. Tonite, it stopped working with the remote and a capital letter (F) come up on the screen in the top right corner in the orange sq. where mono will show then it turns to this letter (F) What does this mean and how do you fix it. The remote will not work it anylonger, new batteries in it. I need a manual for this model t.v.
Comment by bessylou4, posted on Aug 12, 2008My Philips Energy Star T.V. Model No. 32PT6441/37, Serial No. YA1A0521806249, has stopped working along w/the remote control that came w/it when purchased. An(F)appears in the top right corner of the t.v. I learned this means that the t.v. is in a factory mode. 1. How do you get the t.v. out of this mode? 2. Why doesn't the remote control work any longer on the t.v.? 3. How do I repair all this? I purchased another remote control, a "Universal", from Wal-Mart. It didn't work either. Couldn't get it set w/a code to work w/t.v.
Please give me some solution to these problems. I purchased this FixYa for $9.99 tonight. Put the purchase on Pay Pal. I still haven't got my problem resolved. I found, then downloaded the manual for the model t.v. but, no info. on the(F)"factory mode" problem.
Also, Ever since I've owned this t.v.,it turns itself back on after I turn it off. 4. What is causing this?
Please reply ASAP, by e-mail or by phone.

He was telling me to go to the FixYa Program, that it's the best online for problem solutions. O.K. I've done this and now I'm trying to get my whole message to one of these repairman, showing up in the top right corner of this program. I don't know if anyone is or has received my posted message or not. I'm totally confused.
Ajkill, a FixYa.com repairman, was the one who e-mailed my solution. He told me to go to the top buttons of the tv, the Volume (-) & Channel (-) buttons and press them simultaneous. I did this, not really knowing what to expect. I then got a menu. I scrolled down and across to select the tv setup I wanted, then the factory mode finally disappeared. The tv then started working with my remote control again. Thanks to Ajkill and the Good Lord.
P.S. I want to edit the sentence above, in green, where its stating: "It's always turned back on when turned off". I don't remember typing this. I meant to say there, that the tv turns itself back on, some times, when I turn it off. If anyone out has a solution fix for this, then, please let me know.
