The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.

I've seen this problem before, would need your model #, meanwhile is your picute bounce when you hit the if pack, or pip module, if it does that were your problem is. these or your silver cassing, standing upward.
PIP requires either multiple tuners, or another video source. It sounds like your tv lacks another tuner. Does the tv have inputs for, say, a vcr? If so, connect a vcr to it, play a video, and then select PIP. It should display the video and tv simultaneously.
Watching two separate tv channels at the same
time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split
of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo
and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
The Main Picture will eventually go out or at least become distorted. Generally the PIP circuit can be repaired by replacing a couple of capacitors. Probably a job for a Pro but it will need to be done at some point.
I pressed "Demo" on the front of my TV and it worked, I have an old Sony KP-53XBR35 VIDEOSCOPE XBR - no original remote and the Universal remote has PIP button but would not shut it off.
Finally it's off!!!!
