Question about Panasonic TC-26LX60 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Menu not working.........

We just bought this TV used from an aquaintance and for some reason the menu does not work.
The back of the TV says it is a TBM2AX04201 but I could not find any matches on google with that model #. It is a Panasonic Viera 26" LCD.

I press the 'ok" button on the remote to bring up the picture, audio, timer, lock, setup menu and then press 'ok' again to select one of the options and the menu dissapears.
The button on the remote obviously works because it brings up the menu in the first place!
We did not get a manual with the tv so I'm not even sure that I am pressing the right buttons!
Has anyone seen this problem before? The tv seems to be working perfectly fine otherwise.

    No go!



    Perhaps I should explain better, the remote works, the buttons on the tv work, it just will not go into the sub menu.

    For example :



    I press 'ok" (the round button in the middle of the big round disc shaped button) to bring up the menu with the the following options:



    Picture

    Audio

    Timer

    Lock

    Setup



    If I select one of those options using the up/down arrows and press the 'ok' button again the menu just dissapears, it does not actually go into that sub menu.



    If I hit the key to bring up the video inputs and use the arrows again to choose one, hit the 'ok' button the menu dissapears and it does not change the input, however if I just use the arrow buttons to select the one I want, lets say Comp1, and sit there and wait without pressing any buttons it changes by itself so that is fine but I would really like to be able to get into the picture and audio sub menus!

    So I think I figured out the problem.

    While doing some more research I have come to the conclusion that we have the wrong remote!

    It is almost identical with the exception of a few buttons but the one we have only came with tube tv's and we need the one that came with flat panel widescreen tv's!

    I have found it online and will be purchasing one very soon!

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

I have a 42inch sharp aquos LCD tv and there is no power. The power button keeps blinking. There is no picture and sound. What is the fix to this problem.


Power problem are cause by many reasons, i.e Power supply circuit, Lamp driver circuit and most often the TV detects an error cause by power surges. To protect TV from further damage most LCD TV have protection circuit built internally. If this is the reason of your LCD TV not powering On, an error data must be reset back to zero.
To change data you will need to access the service mode and change the value of lamp error code to zero (0). Entering service mode requires a trained TV technician. Changing data can cause more problem to your television. If you are not qualified to service your television, please do not go to service menu codes. Moreover below are the process, pls do so at your own risk.
* Unplug the TV * Press and hold the {VOL -} + {CH+} buttons located on LCD TV unit (not in remote control) Note: If above didn't work, alternately use (VOL -) + (TV/AV input) buttons located on LCD TV unit (not in remote control) * While holding the above buttons, plug in the TV. * The TV will turn on with the "K" or "K123" appears om screen. * Use {CH+} {CH -} buttons to go and display the service menu. Note: If above didn't work, alternately use (VOL -) + (CH -) buttons. * Search for "LAMP ERROR menu" from the displayed service menu by using "up or Down cursor" from remote control, or alternatively use "CH - or CH+ to select "LAMP ERROR" * change it to zero (0) value, using {VOL+} or (VOL -) on remote control. * Turn the set off to exit the Service Menu.

Seems you set it to "Stereo Direct" mode. This is an analog only mode, while you are using a digital signal. You can change this with the mode button.
Press menu, on the main menu screen 1, scroll down to stereo direct. Turn this OFF.
This should solve your issue!

Tv appears to be stuck in auto-detect mode


All I can suggest is press down and hold your menu button on the remote and roll around in circles.Also try it with the menu button on the TV.It definitely sounds like it is being pushed down enough to be stuck.If that does not work please write back and in the meantime I will research it a little further.Bought in March huh?90 day waranty too I bet?How long has this been going on?If it does not work,I am also providing a link to Samsung to contact them.You will need probably model number and serial number.If you have the receipt,registered it,or have a credit statement to show when you bought it,and you are really persistent,they will usually do something about it.Samsung is supposed to be one of the best TV's too.I am surprised by this issue.Good luck!

Zenith B27A11Z 27" TV, can't get into menu, original remote gone


Most universal or multi-brand remotes will control a TV's basic functions, but almost none will support advanced functions like menus. If the TV doesn't have a front panel menu button, the best solution is to buy a universal remote of the same brand as the TV. If you get a Zenith universal remote, it should have a menu button that will work with the TV.

TV is not working


If it's 3 weeks old bring it back if you can. There should be at least a 30 day warranty. When the channel and volume buttons on the TV don't work it sounds like something failed.

Optical output on tv through dvd home cinema out of sync


Up front, i copied this from another site, so kudos to the OP there if this works for anyone...

Hi,
This same problem had been bugging me when I bought my LE37B650, everyone suggested adjusting the delay time on my AV amp but unfortunately mine does not have this function.

Anyway I finally fixed the problem using the following steps

Before you start make a note of your menu settings as you will have to reset them after this procedure

Turn off the TV then press Info -> Menu -> Mute in sequence then turn the TV back on again. This will get you into the secret Service Menu. Go straight to the AUDIO page of the menu. Don't be tempted to fiddle with things in service menu cos you can end up in a right old pickle!

In the AUDIO page you willl notice that there is a time delay set for the internal speakers of 100ms but for some reason this is not set for the external output so all you need do is dial in a 100ms delay there and that should sort the problem. Well it fixed it for me.

Note that as soon as you enter the service menu, all your other standard menu settings are lost and the screen will be set to dynamic for some reason so you have to go through and change everything back after you have done this.

Hope this Helps

This would suggest that you CAN fix the problem with an analog amp.

Also interested to see if a 2 year old thread is alive!
