I followed Garyalex67's instructions & then some, here's what happened.
With the tv off I pressed the "home menu",
then pressing the power button on the tv & got the 12 blinks.
With the tv in standby- w/red light displayed.
I pressed the home menu, press power button on remote to turn on the tv.
Solid blue light came on, w/ "starting up. please wait.".
Then the blue blinking light starts after a few minutes.
With the tv off, push power button on tv.
Solid blue light came on, w/ "starting up. please wait."
I pressed home menu, get menu, then press display &
it goes right back to solid blue light w/ "starting up. please wait."
Powering the tv on I got the solid blue light w/ "starting up. please wait."
From there I can press the home menu & its displayed. I tried holding down the "display"
button to see what would happen & I goes right back to solid blue light w/ "starting up. please wait."
Before posting my initial comments & to this very day one thing i noticed
still exist when the home menu is displayed.
these features are highlighted:
picture,sound,power control,sleep timer, & option.
I can adjust any of those featured items.
However the "tuner setup" & "home gallery" features are greyed out
& can not be adjusted. When i try to select those i get this message:
"current settings do not allow selection and adjustment".
It would be nice to actually get to the "Final Setup" option as (garyalex67) mentioned, but doesn't seem
I can. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I'm pretty tech savvy. Are those universal resetting instructions
for all pioneers or just the 5070/5071?
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong or is all hope lost? I can still get the home menu on this unit, so maybe there is hope? "I don't know"…..
