The TV must be in "Shut Down" and not manually switched Off, to perform the Error Code Operational
Check. When the TV is switched Off, the code automatically resets to "12" No Error.
Press the front panel "DEVICE/input" and "MENU" buttons at the same time, and hold for 5 seconds to
Activate the Error Code Operational Check. The LED will then flash denoting a two digit Code.
Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.
The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
Example: If the Error Code is "32", the LED will flash three times, pause, and then flash two times.
The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
