Then, I was unable to get in any more. The TV will turn on just fine, and it works just fine. It looks like it did before I started to play with it. I un plugged it and plugged it back in. But it will not enter the service mode any more. When I do the key commands, it just comes on but not in the service mode.
Any suggestions on how to get back into the service mode?
I left my TV off over night thinking that entering the service mode many times in a row, might turn the feature off for a while.
I tried again this morning. No joy. The TV will power up, the TV works just as it has been before I stated playing with the service mode. My remote works when the TV is on. I installed new batteries in the remote to see if that was it, but no.
Maybe someone here bought the Sony service manual and can look in it to see how to toggle on the service screen?
Any other suggestions welcome.
What I do to enter the service mode:
Press the "display" button
Press the "5" button
Press the "Vol up" button
Press the "large green power button"
This worked maybe 10 or 12 times yesterday as I tried to move around in the service mode. When I got lost and could not get back to where I wanted to be, I turned the TV off, and then on again using the above commands. I never did hit the mute button or the enter button.
Have all of us Sony HD CRT folks died out? My Sony still has the most lovely picture of any LCD, LED, or Plasma on the market.
