************DO NOT PLAY WITH THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING**************

The get into the service menu do the following..

Enter the Service Menu
Start with the plasma turned OFF
Make sure you point the remote directly at the IR sensor in the tv

Press the i button (directly below 9) on the remote (just press, do not hold)
Wait 3 seconds
Press LEFT, UP, LEFT, RIGHT then POWER

If done correctly, the plasma turns on and the INFORMATION page is displayed, will change 3 times on its own quickly.

the hours meter is on page 5, scroll down with arrow,
to switch off service menu simply hit HOME MENU button on your remote.

Try it that way:

Start with TV switched ON
then hit POWER button to put it into STAND-BY mode and don't wait, hit i+ button straight away,
then wait 3 sec. and hit LEFT, UP, LEFT, RIGHT and Power.

It should work, keep trying
