    Thank you for your reply. I incorrectly entered the model number. It is a PVQ-2512. I replaced IC451, C401, C408, C409, C418, These are all electrolytics. The insufficient scan is very little but I would like to get into Service Menu to correct.

    Thank you, Tony.

    I found the solution and have made the adjustment. Tv looks great.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    Press and hold STOP, PLAY, and VOL- buttons on the unit together over 5 seconds with no cassette inserted.

If you fix the vertical cirrcuit correctly, there is no need to go into service menu as your vertical should go back to normal. Re-check your work. I remember one cap on this set that gets overlooked all the time so you may want to check it. It is cap C413 - ceramic cap and sometimes it shorts causing a vertical shrinking as you described. Good luck.

    I'm not sure exactly how you can get into the service mode on this particular model, but I can tell you how it is done with Panasonic televisions. Try it maybe it will work.

    Select SETUP and then CABLE. Select TIMER and set SLEEP TIMER to 30 minutes. Press ACTION button twice and this will get you out of menu. Go to channel 124 then adjust volume to 0 (zero). Go to front of set and press VOLUME button. A red CHK should appear in the corner of the screen. Press ACTION AND VOL DWN buttons on unit at the same time (not on remote) and this will put you into service mode. If you see something else on the screen, other than SERVICE, press the two buttons again.. Now you should see a sub menu in the service mode. Use the power button on the remote to select the one you want. In your case, you need the first item, which I belive is VCJ SUB. Here you can adjust your vertical. To get out of service mode, pres ACTION and POWER on the remote at the same time for about two seconds. The set will turn off and back on by itself - normal. Hope this will help you.

We inherited this tv and dont have remote yet but trying to connect dvd player to it - how do i find out what channel to put it on for it to "see" the dvd?

We had this problem - plus we do not have the TV connected to cable or an antennae, nor do we have a remote. You can get to the menu options by pushing "stop/eject"" and "rewind" at the same time. Then go to the "TV" sub-menu to change the type of input.

DTV remote code


Don't know if this will help but I have Comcast as my cable TV provider and am using a Motorola DCT-6200 STB and the remote Comcast provides with the STB. To get my Panasonic TV/VCR combo (PVQ-2510A) to work with the Comcast remote I had to do the following:

1) Do the remote code search in AUX mode (or VCR or DVD mode if your remote has that button instead) using the instructions for searching ing remote codes. I had to toggle back and forth between AUX and POWER on the remote until the TV turned off. I saved that code on the remote, but it only controlled the power on the TV, not the volume control.

2) Next I did the remote code search using the TV button on the remote and toggled between the TV button and the volume control until the volume +/- bar appeared on the screen. I saved that code too.

I use the AUX button to turn the TV on and off. Once the TV is on the volume control on the remote operates the TV volume normally. I still need to toggle between CABLE and AUX depending on which device I'm controlling, the cable Set Top Box (STB) or the TV. You may have to experiment some to get it to work correctly.

Here's a link to the remotes Comcast is providing in my area.

Picture suddenly went dark

Hi, Apparently you have a possible component failure with your Panasonic PVQ-2510. This would involve the circuitry at the back/neck of the picture tube. Diagnosis would require familiarity with discreet components, use of a VOM, soldering and general component knowledge. In as much as it is possible that your red drive transistor (or an IC) would require replacement or resoldering, your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified professional. Should you venture to do a do-it-yourself, pls post back. Good luck and kind regards.
