Dear JA Customer,

 

Thank you for your question.

 

If you have the PIP turned on in the menu "View Mode", and you accidentally hit the "SWAP" button on the bottom of the remote then you will get the PIP picture swapped with the main picture.

 

Please push the SWAP button to get back to your main picture.

 

 

Thank you for using JA

Thank you for your reply to my question, but your advice did not solve the problem. I have been messing with this mess for 24 hours now, and I'm no closer to solving the problem than when it first occurred. I have called a repair person to come to my home to evaluate, and hopefully fix, the situation I have created. Thank you for trying!

You're welcome,

 

You need not respond to this inquiry as I just need to remove it from my list.

 

Thanks for using JA

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
