Hi, It's a regular TV 5yrs old about 36in. Diaganal screen. I lost the instructions and the remote. It is hooked up to Comcast cable with their box and remote. But the other day while I was changing the set up from the action key on the TV itself, I somehow turned on the PIP feature and now I can't turn it off.


Try turning the TV off and then back on. That should take care of it.

If not then we need to make sure it is not a feature on the cable box accidentally activated.

I have tried both .I have turned the TV on and off many times and I have tried to use the PIP feature on the remote. I tell you I turned it (PIP) on from the TV itself. I jst can't remember how I did it to reverse it. I am very technical and a Mechanical Engineer by education and I feel real stupid right now.
Hhmmm I would be able to help you more with a model number off of the TV.

I dont'know the number and it is to heavy for me to lift it out from the wall. I would bet since I set it on so easily it should be easy to cancel
You will have to find a way into the user menu....

Usually you have a PIP button on the remote. Search on your comcast remote long and hard for a button that says PIP.

If there is none then I would go about it another way, sledgehammer Yell

Seriously though, the small things can be the most frustrating I know.

Don't accept any answer I give, unless of course it leads you to a resolved problem.
