    Having just read through the purple snake PX60 thread it looks like a good idea to start a thread with just concise info
    serial number of tv- either 37PX60/42PX60 or 50PX60 and whether yours has purple snakes or not.


    Please DO NOT enter into discussion as it will just lead to another long and contrived thread! If we are going to propose this list to a manufacturer it does not look professional to have other debate included within.

    Thanks
    This info from TX'D regarding firmware version

    Please DO NOT enter into discussion

    FIRMWARE VERSION:

    Firmware Version can be seen in Green Text at the top middle of screen on the first page of the Service Menu.

    To access Service Menu:

    a. Press analogue on remote and go to channel 99
    b. Turn up bass to maximum
    c. Turn down treble to minimum
    d. Press V/- on TV while holding index button on remote

    Now you can see service menu 1


    After noting the Firmware Version, press exit button to return to original screen.

    I think this post may not be that useful but I hope that someone can consolidate and find out the series that is faulty.

    IMHO, we really need firmware info, can those who have posted "don't know" follow the instructions to get the f/ware version and edit their posts appropriately please?


    Cheers,

    Hi guys just to add the Index button is the one beneath the yellow one and not the I button on the bottom right of the number pad, if you press the I it seams to reset the TV back to pre installed state, even deletes user ID data:eek: .

    may be add this to first post? :thumbsup:
