The TV is in Calibration mode. Take the original remote and press (Arrow up) (Arrow down) then (The power button on the TV) ((NOT ALL AT ONCE BUT IN ORDER)). Do it over and over if you need to.

How do I fix my power cycling tv??

I have found that the solder connections get loose where they connect to the p.c.b. please make sure its not plugged in and don't touch the hv probe going to the tube. It will be the last time. Be extremely careful and keep one hand behind your back. If that's not it, the power supply has gone south. Get another TV.

Power off the TV, hold down the reset button on the remote and power up the tv with power button on tv while keeping reset depressed.

Won't completely shut off

Do you have a separate Cable Box? It sounds like you are shutting off the signal to the TV and may have to push a 'TV' button the remote then the 'off' button to actually shut down the TV.

Auria tv "button locked" message.

Holding Vol and Vol- buttons will lock/unlock the buttons. In my case, this didn't completely fix the problem - I was not able to get to many functions. I suspect it was in some store-demo mode. To completely rest, hold the Menu and Chan- buttons then press the Power button (starting from the tv being off). Pressing other button combos will put the tv into manufacturing mode (with cycling solid colors). Turning the tv off and back on will exit this.

I've had my Sharp Aquos LC20E1U for a number of years. A couple of times recently it just shut off on its own. It started OK again the following day. However, last time this happened, it wouldn't even...

service menu procedure text changed by midge to work with Sharp LC-32P70E & probably the same for similar models.

There are probably ways of really messing up your set if you do the wrong thing from the service menus, so do this at your own risk:

To enter service menu, make sure the set is plugged in but turned off at the power button on the top of the tv,
then while holding both input button and volume down button, push the power button. Within about 5 seconds, the set will power up keep holding the input and volume down buttons until a small "K" appears in a box on the left side of the screen. Then press and hold the channel down and vol down buttons at the same time to enter the service menu.

Once the service menu is displayed on the screen, you can get the screen to display different levels of solid grey by pressing the number keys on your remote. i.e. press "1" to get a relatively dark grey, 2 for a lighter grey, and so on up to 6 which is a bright white screen; 7, 8, and 9 don't appear to do anything. (this was for adjusting grey levels, other settings are available too) Press any number a second time to return to the service menu...

Not sure wether the grey background settings apply, but for entering the service menu it does.

I think to get out of service mode you have to disconnect the TV from the mains and wait about 30 seconds.

it's some time since I used the service menu on the Sharp Aquos but I do remember you can do a full reset to factory settings as well as turn on, off and reset certain system settings too you will just have to experiment with the remote keys, I think the colour fastext key access different menu levels etc but as I said I am unsure, at least this procedure will get you there so you can try for yourself.

Hope this helps

Please come back to let me know if the service menu procedure works for you.

Good Luck

My tv just changes colors when I turn it on with no picture, no of the buttons work on the remote or tv, what is the problem

Your TV is in the service mode. Just try one of two things to correct this. With the original remote, press the cursor button left, followed by pressing the right cursor button. Now shut the TV off. When you power up your TV it should be fine. The second thing to try is to press the cursor button up, followed by pressing the cursor button down. Power off the TV. Now power it up and it should be fine. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Printer cycles on/off and displays "improper shut down"

Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.

what kind of comcast remote do you have please describe, black and silver, dta, and especially important what color is the OK/select button grey or red. If the Ok/select button is red the codes are 11034, 10768, if the ok select button is grey there are no codes, however you can use the search option listed below

step 1 press the tv button located at the top of the remote
step 2 press and hold the setup button located on the upper right of the remote until the tv button blinks red 2 times.
step 3 enter code 991 the tv button will blink 2 times again
step 4 alternate pressing the grey Power button then the tv button located at the top of the remote ( the tv will turn off when it finds the correct code)
step 5 press the Setup button when the tv turns off and the tv button will blink 2 times confirming the code is locked in

FYI this process can take quite some time but there is no direct code listing for the non dvr remotes.

Good Luck

My color is washed out and dim and the colors are wrong . Toshiba 65h83 projection hd tv

I don't know your model, therefore I will tell you genericaly what the problem may be.

There are many things that can cause this type of fault. The response of the video amplifier stages would have to be checked right up through to the output that drives the projection. it is also possible that there is a fault with the colour demodulator. If the set uses projection tubes it is possible that the tubes are weak, or there is dirt in the optics. Colour demodulation problems can also cause the colours to not be correct. Many models using tubes have an optical transparent cooling fluid in front of the tubes. This fluid may have to be changed.
