In this chassis, you can upgrade the main software via
ComPair without removing the back cover of the TV (it is
possible that early production sets don't have a hole in the back
plate, in this case you have to remove the back plate). The
switch, which is needed for the software downloading
procedure, can be reached through a gap in the back cover or
the SSB shielding. The switch can be operated with a toothpick
or something like that. Make sure that you do not damage the
PWB with sharp objects. You can find more information on how
this procedure works in the ComPair file. It is possible that not
all sets are equipped with the hardware, needed to make
software upgrading possible. To speed up the programming
process the firmware of the ComPair interface can be
upgraded. See paragraph "How To Order" for the order

TV is in factory mode.
Set is in protection due to various causes.
For error codes see error-code list.
No communication on slow I
No communication on NVM-I
uP circuitry or RC-receiver is defective.
The sync is derived in the HIP.
Check video-path in Service Default Mode.

Press the "VOL-" button on the local keyboard for at least 3 seconds. Switch the
TV "off" and back "on". The TV has now left Factory Mode and functions
When pressing the "MENU" button on the local keyboard for at least 3 seconds,
you only leave Factory Mode temporarily. After switching "off" and back "on", the
TV is in Factory Mode again.
You have no picture, so:
- Read the error buffer via ComPair (error buffer is accessible when set is in
protection, ComPair-file will guide you to this).
- Read the blinking LED information via standard remote command
- Or you read the error code sequence via standard remote command
When you have found the error, check the circuitry related to the supply voltage
C-communication or the circuitry that triggers the protection.
C- or fast I
C-bus. As processor cannot communicate with one of the 2 buses, the Stand-by-LED
spontaneously starts blinking 6-6-6-etc. or 18-18-18-etc...
If in the error buffer somewhere is an error 6 or 18, these will have the highest
priority starting the mentioned blinking.
Measure, dependent of the error on the I
C bus to the uP.
As the uP cannot communicate with the NVM I
blinking 1-1-1. Note: when there is no access to the NVM, a lot of picture setting
can go wrong.
In case the TV does react on a local keyboard operation, you must check the
RC-receiver circuitry (diagram "J").
Check crystals in the HIP circuit on bad contacts.
Investigate whether there is an error code present in the error buffer. In case
there is one, check the I
Measure and check signal path Tuner-HIP-FBX-EPLD.
Check functionality on circuitry (B3a, B3b, B3c and B3d) of PICNIC, FEM,
EAGLE, COLUMBUS and/or field memories. Tip: the whole Pixel Plus chipset
can be diagnosed via ComPair.
Check circuitry around IC7012 on diagram "B5a".
Check circuitry around IC7007 on diagram "B5a".
