How do I remove on screen tutorial

I unplugged the tv set for a few hours and when I plugged it back in, there is an on screen tutorial that goes through the steps of how to program the TV. None of the buttons on the tv will work nor will the remote. How do I get the tutorial off the screen?

First question... can you go through the tutorial?

    i don't mean to be facetious, but sometimes you need to go through the steps programmed into the machine, to get it to work the way you want it to...... in the meantime, i'm looking it up (pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.......) ;-')

    you could turn the tv off for quite a few more hours, and see if it responds, it might have "woke up" a bit "dazed and confused"...... technical reason, sometimes tv's have both a "memory battery" that keeps it's settings for a few hours, as well as a "power loss reset" that tells it that the power has been off from the wall...... sometimes if you power the set back up, and the reset tells it power was lost, and the memory is in a partially "lost" state, it will default to a set of instructions telling you how to set it up and use it, but the memory might be "confused" enough, that the processor cannot store instructions from either the front panel or the remote....... if the memory circuit had had longer to discharge and lose ALL of it's settings, it might have worked the first time you plugged it in........ a longer time unplugged might cure this condition (say, maybe a day or two), but if it happens after that, call a service tech........

How do I fix a pioneer plasma tv when the sound goes out, the tv still plays, just no sound

first is to hear if sound is there when a DVD etc is connected to one of the rear audio and video inputs on the set.

Also check speakers in the set are in menu switched ON and not OFF.

If a cable box, sat box, receiver are in use check their settings for sound also==not a bad idea to unplug each unit and then after a few minutes plug each back (set , box, etc) to allow each to try to boot up.

Let me know what you find.

The tv 'runs' - sometimes for hours, sometimes just a few minutes. cut on and off - most times you can hear a ticking - then the power light comes on and the set will. Sometimes the power light will...

This is typical with many sets when it goes old as there is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling , tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs.

Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points. Please find below two links for tips on poor start ups, as if the set is totally failed the SMPS might be faulty.

Picture goes off

A temporary solution is to unplug the TV for a few minutes, remove static from the glass with your hand. It is important to unplug rather than turn off. If you have a degauss button you can also press that before unplugging. Wait several minutes or an hour. Then plug it back in. If you have Picture in Picture it may be an issue with that and to permanently solve may need a repair person. The unplugging may get you by for a few days at a time. That's at least better than an hour.

2 year old Samsung 50" DLP

Sounds like a bad digital board to me. Not too hard to replace in those models but, you do have to write down a few settings before replacing it. These settings are available in the service menu. Any questions let me know [email protected]
