Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a brand new Aquos 52" LED TV and I accidentally locked remote operation and THEN found out the front touch screen panel was broken. Any way to manually reset the TV or remote to gain access to on-screen menus? TV is literally bricked at the moment because I cannot use the front touch panel buttons and the remote simply displays a "remote control operation prohibited" alert on screen...



Answers :

While the set is turned on, you need to hold the power button until the set shuts off and the led in the middle of the bottom flashes once. Then quickly release the power button and press the vol - and input buttons together along with the power button. Your TV should then turn on and should show you a blue box with the letter K. Now press the vol- and channel- buttons at the same time. You should now be in the service menu. With your remote arrow up until the top line says industry init. Arrow to the right and hit enter. Screen should turn green and say factory init success. I hope this helps you.

Is there some combination of front buttons to undo this?
