Lamp error detection
Function
This LCD color TV set incorporates a lamp error detection feature that automatically turns off the power for safety under abnormal lamp or lamp
circuit conditions. If by any chance anything is wrong with the lamp or lamp circuit or if the lamp error detection feature is activated for some reason, the following will result.
1) The power is interrupted in about 6 seconds after it is turned on.
(The power LED on the front of the TV set turns red from green and keeps blinking in red: ON for 300ms and OFF for 1500ms.).
2) If the above phenomenon 1) occurs 5 times consecutively, it becomes impossible to turn on the power. (The power LED remained red).
Measures
1) Checking with lamp error detection OFF
Enter the adjustment process mode, referring to 2. Entering and exiting the adjustment process mode.
If there is a problem with the lamp or lamp circuit, the lamp will go out. (The power LED is green.)
Then, you can check the operation to see if the lamp and lamp circuit are in trouble.
Resetting the lamp error count
After the lamp and lamp circuit are found out of trouble, reset the lamp error count. If a lamp error is detected five consecutive times, the power
cannot be turned on. Using the cursor ( UP/DOWN ) key, move to the cursor to [LAMP ERROR RESET], Line 8 on adjustment process mode service page 2/16. With the cursor (LEFT/RIGHT) keys, select the [LAMP ERROR RESET] value. Finally press the cursor (OK) eys to reset the value to “0”.
HOTEL MODE (PUBLIC MODE)
1. Starting the Public Mode
# There are two following ways to display the PUBLIC Mode setting screen.
1) On the process adjustment mode screen (2/16), set the “HOTEL MODE” Flag to ON.
Turn off the power, and turn it on again, pressing the CHNNEL UP and VOLUME UP keys of the main unit at the same time.
2) Enter the Pass Word, and start the unit.
a) Turn on the power, pressing the INPUT and VOLUME UP keys of the main unit at the same time.
b) Display the Pass Word input screen.
Operation procedure
# The initial input position is the digit at the left end.
# For the numeric keys 0 to 9 of R/C, key input is accepted. Input of the other keys is prohibited.
# Change “–” to “*” by inputting the numeric key at the input position, and shift the input position rightward one digit.
# When three digits are completely input, the Pass Word is judged.
c) Check the Pass Word by inputting three digits.
If the Pass Word is 0,2,7  it shifts to the PUBLIC Mode setting screen.
In another case, the screen is erased, and it operates in the ordinary mode.
Exiting the Public Mode screen
# There are two following ways to exit the Public Mode setting screen.
1) Turn off the power.
2) Select “Execution” in the PUBLIC_Mode to execute it.
Activate the restart under the set content. Here, the START input SOURCE setting is excluded since this item is referred to only when the power is turned on.

# When the shipment setting is done, a set each value in Public Mode is initialized.
(PUBLIC MODE in the process mode Setting of a flag is also initialized)
# Separately, the shipment beginnings when all except for each set value in Public Mode is initialized are provided for a process mode. (INDUSTRY INIT (-HOTEL))
# Only when turning on the HOTELE MODE item, each setting is effective.
# After it decides it with EXECUTE, it AC OFF/ON it to reflect a set value.
White Balance Adjustment
For white balance adjustment, adjust the offset values on pages 12/16.
[Condition of the unit for inspection] : PC mode, Modulated light (+16), Color temperature (High).
[Input signal condition] : HDMI 1080i 15IRE (LO), 78IRE (HI)
[Adjustment reference device] : Minolta CA-210
Adjustment procedure
1) Display the current adjustment status at R/G/B_GAIN(HI). (Page 12/16 of process adjustment) The signal of 78IRE is input.
2) Read the value of the luminance meter. x=0.272, y =0.277
3) Change R_GAIN (HI)/ B_GAIN (HI) (Adjustment offset value) on page 12/16 of process adjustment so that the values of the luminance meter approach x=0.272 and y =0.277.
(Basically, G is not changed. If adjustment fails with R and B, change G. When G is lowered, the weaker of R or B must be fixed.)
4) Display the adjustment status of the current R/G/B_GAIN(LO).
The signal of 15IRE is input.
Change R_GAIN (LO)/ B_GAIN (LO) (adjustment offset value) on page 12/16 of process adjustment so that the values of the luminance meter approach x =0.272 and y = 0.277.
5) Both HI and LO are repeating the step from 1 to 4 until becoming an aim value.
Adjustment reference standard value
Adjustment spec ± 0.002 Inspection spec ± 0.004 (point LO)
Adjustment spec ± 0.001 Inspection spec ± 0.002 (point HI)
6) EEP SAVE (16/16) of the process menu is turned on after the adjustment is completed and the white balance adjustment value is saved.
Upgrading the software
1. Turn off the AC power (Unplug the AC power cord).
2. Insert the upgrading USB flash memory for upgrade into the service slot.
3. While holding down the power button, plug in the AC power cord of the main unit to turn on the power.
4. Upgrade begins automatically.
After the set starts, the upgrade screen is displayed.

NOTE: In such case, try to upgrade the software again. If it still fails, the hardware may be in trouble.
6. When all the procedures are complete, upgrade success screen shows up. The new software version can be confirmed on screen.
The version number appears when each item has been successfully upgraded. Finally the main version number appears on screen.
7. Turn off the AC power (Unplug the AC power cord). Take out the upgrading USB flash memory.
It waits for about 20 seconds until the AC power supply is turned off.
8. Now the software has been upgraded.
NOTE: Then get the set started and call the process adjustment screen 1/16 to check the main software version.
CAUTION: 1) Do not take out and put in the USB flash memory during formatting.
2) It takes about one minute to the rewriting completion.
Please confirm the upgrade status on the screen becomes 100%.
3) The AC power supply of the set is waited for about 20 seconds until off (The AC outlet is pulled out) after the upgrade is completed.
