    I have the same problem. Initial setup keeps coming on. had this a few years ago and it eventually went away. Now it is worse as it flips between video 1and 2. The remote does not work when we have this problem.

    We unplugged overnight but it did not help.

    I have the same problem. I have tried so many different solutions. First I tried running the set up, that didn't fix anything. I unplugged it for a few minutes and plugged back in, didn't work. I unplugged it overnight, didn't work. I am kind of out of options now and realize the TV is broken. What a pain in the ass!

I found that the problem was in the Cable box, there was a bad connection in the box, It cost me $240.00 to find this out, a Sony dealer had my set for 8 days and found that the set was ok.

    I spent over $225.00 to have my set checked and finally found out that the Directv Tivo box didn't have a good sound connection to the TV set. I changed boxes and have no further problems.



First give it a hard reset. To do this you must unplug the power cord for at least 4 hours; then try again.  This will reset the internal programming and restore it to factory defaults settings. Unplugging for a shorter period of time may not do the trick.

If the hard reset does not solve the problem it has a defective eeprom OR a bad voltage regulator that feeds the controller IC/eeprom set.  In which case you will need a tv tech to dignose the exact fault and determine the defective parts. (There are over 100 parts associated with these functions).

Hope this helps.

Service Engine Error 181.2049 Maint failed to prime back pressure

This error most frequently happens during the initial printer setup. Another reason for this error to occur is when using malfunctioning cartridges or cartridges that do not have enough ink to complete the initial setup of the printer.
Inserting a new set of setup cartridges or by using the setup cartridges provided with the machine would resolve this issue. To identify whether you are using the setup cartridges.
If you are already using the new setup cartridges, unplug the power adapter from the back of the printer and re-plug it after five seconds and let the machine attempt a second initial setup.

Initial Setup Screen

Have you ever cleaned the set front glass with windex or glass cleaner.Sometimes the fluid runs down before you can wipe and lands inside right on top of the push buttons that control ( CH,VOL, MENU, etc.) If this happens you can get this trouble. If you up to it take the cover off and look at the board just under the front edge of the crt. If you see green or grey residue you probably have to remove that corresponding TAC switch. You can just cut out and use the remote for that function.

Initial setup

This is commonly caused by the CRT going too weak, and the AKG circuits are switching off the bias to the CRT. This is part of the high voltage regulation protection.

Other causes, but are rare to cause this, are failures in the bias circuits, high voltage regulation (flyback assembly), and in the scan amplifiers.

With proper experience, reference to the service manual, and the proper set-up, it is possible to determine the causes of the failure, and service it. The cost of the parts will be rather expensive if you can still have access to them.
