Service mode. Tv cycles from a grey to black screen to different colored screens red,blue,etc. There are buttons located on the bottom of tv. That is how we power on the tv etc.

Have you already tried unplugging the tv POWER cord for at least 3 full minutes?

I do not use the phone call service but another tech may.

In the mean time, I am here with you via CHAT.

To proceed, reply back and tell me what happened after unplugging the tv power cord.
