You have to reset the device: 1. Lock and then unlock the IPOD using the Hold button. 2. continually press both the Menu and Select buttons at the same time until the apple logo shows up(this should take 6-10 seconds). You might have to repeat the step several times. If running into problems during resetting place the device on a flat surface and make sure that while pressing Select you?re not touching the touch wheel, and that you?re pressing Menu on the outer part of the wheel and not towards the center. If that didn?t work try connecting it to a wall electricity socket or the PC and see if it effects the situation in any way. Good Luck

Cannot get the screen to fit properly. both bottom and top of pic are cut off

You should be able to recalibrate the screen from the display menu.if not then you nmay be able to adjust the aspect ratio from within the menu settings or remote control.it sounds as if it has selected zoom instead of widescreen 16:9 or normal.

Nec resetPX-50XR5W

Hmm - does this still happen even if you reset all the settings on the TV to factory default? Other things might be;

1) You're the victim of a prank.
2) Try and use the buttons on the TV to navigate the menu screen, instead of the remote.
3) Call NEC support. They'll usually help with this even if its not on warranty.

Can i use a universal remote instead of a vizio remote sense the stupid thing does not work

Universals rarely if they program have all the needed features.

1..the original remote can be tested with a tester(MOST shops have one) and many digital cameras in a dim room will when the remote is pointed at them react with a faint flash on their display screen.

2. if remote is good issue is one of two things with set; remote receiver in the set is bad or set has feature that locks the remote out--.

If the remote tests good a universal is a waste of money etc. if remote is bad most of the time (we get 10 dollars if we repair one) it can be fixed.

I got a universal remote for my sylvania flat screen tv. I was testing the "mode" on the remote and then the next thing I know my tv begins flashing colors red blue green white and I tried to...

I think you accidentally turned on some kinda of test pattern. Try pressing the Input button on the TV itself or the menu button. Sorry that is the best I can do.

Hi, I need help with my philips sjm3151

To reset the remote, first get to the Setup menu by pressing the iPod and Mode buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. There should be a message on the remote display saying to hold it for 3 seconds. You can then select Full Reset by scrolling down with the arrow key. You may need to press the reconnect button on the bottom of the dock to ensure they are both searching for each other. This info was buried in the manual which you can find on Philips site if you feel like digging through their support page.

Have a KDL-52BR4, cant get rid of closed caption on the screen even after pushing cc button on remote

If you are using a Cable Box, make sure that CC is off. Same applies to a satellite receiver. If you don't have either of those then I would contact your service center to have it looked at. The micro is the only thing that can cause that, providing your sure about how to turn the closed caption off in the menu. Try that way first, instead of using the CC on the remote.

Main screen is frozen immediately when I turned it on

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

Dynex iPod Dock with Remote Control connected to a tv. Volume not loud enough even though volume on tv and ipod volume are all the way up.

i had the same problem. it seems that you have to use the remote to turn the volume up on the ipod instead of doing it manually. that worked for me.

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen

I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D

String test

Possibly the closed caption feature on this set has been turned on. There is a button on the remote control that says Caption. Press it until you turn the caption off. This will not be on a universal remote, only the original remote. You can also turn this off through the caption section on your on-screen menu.
