To perform a "self-check" with the TV plugged in and the power off, press the following sequence of buttons on the remote:
"DISPLAY" + "5" + "VOL DOWN" + "POWER"
You will see a diagnostics screen showing any errors ("00" indicates no errors for that particular line item). At the bottom of the screen are three numbers showing (1) operating hours, (2) boot count (number of times the set has been powered on), (3) and panel hours.
To return to normal operation, power the set off and then power on again in normal fashion.
