Start with the plasma turned OFF
Make sure you point the remote directly at the IR sensor in the tv
Press DISPLAY on the remote (just press, do not hold)
Wait 3 seconds
Press LEFT, UP, LEFT, RIGHT then POWER
If done correctly, the plasma turns on and the INFORMATION page is displayed
Then use the down arrow to page through to page 5
PANEL = the time the set has been on
MTB = the time the set has been plugged in
When you finish press the HOME MENU button
BE CAREFUL NOT TO CHANGE ANY SETTINGS! JUST LOOK!Other pieces of information:
- VGA input does not have the same tweakable settings as the other inputs, but can do 1360x768 resolution, but at a sacrifice of picture quality.
- HDMI - can NOT take native resolution (1360x768)
- D-Nice's recommended settings http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post8564316
- If you have the dreaded blinking blue power light, try zero'ing out the zipcode for the TV Guide setup.
- Firmware available on Pioneer's site to upgrade the Home Media Gallery Software - http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...tailsComponent
