The Service Default Mode (SDM) is a technical aid that can be used to display the your TV error code.

Follow these instrutions exactly to place your set in SDM Mode. 

For sets that still have video do the following. 

  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. You should now see the letters "SDM" in the far right hand corner. 
  5. If not do step "3' again.
  6. To display the error code hit the "Status" button on your remote. 
  7. The TV can store up to "7" past errors.  

 

For sets that have no video do the following. 

 

  1. Turn your TV on
  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. Wait a few seconds. The red power light should begin to blink. 
  5. The blinking sequence will determine the error code. 
  6. You will have one long 5 second red blink followed by the error code. 

Note: On some sets the TV will automaticaly blink the error code when its powered up without having to go into the SDM menu. If you power light blinks after the set is powered up jot down the sequence.
