To enter service menu, just like in the previously launched products, we press menu button of the remote control and enter 9, 3, 0, 1 in sequence for BEKO / ARÇELİK brand TVs. For GRUNDIG brand we enter 8, 5, 0, 0.
As the chassis improvement and development works go on throughout the production, service menu items may vary according to the software version. The following explanations are service menu settings of the current version.
This menu contains general settings of the system.
TF CHASSIS / TELEVISION for Beko, Arcelik and Grundig LCD TV Service mode
TV MODE tab contains "Factory" and "Customer" options. It is used to perform factory controls and settings more efficiently and faster. On the TVs delivered to the customer, this setting is absolutely selected as "Customer." Otherwise, it will lead to customer complaints such as "TV automatically turns on after power failures" or "different functions operate from the remote control".
HDCP VERIFY: It must be checked if HDCP key is loaded or not during factory controls. HDCP key stands for ““High Bandwidth Content Protection Key”. This key is used to prevent copying of data on digital sources such as DVD or blue-ray. With HDCP, video data is transmitted from the source to the receiver as encrypted. Therefore, to watch HDCP encrypted DVDs or blue-ray, HDCP key should have been loaded on TV. On the products with HDCP installed, SUCCESS message is included.
DEBUG MODE is a feature, which is used to track software modifications made on TV during R&D stage. This setting must be "Off" on TVs delivered to the customer.
PLUG PLAY (Demo Mode): A navigation key is pressed after having completed all settings and checks in the factory. Later, "Please wait" message appears; and when you see the message "DONE", the device should be unplugged and plugged again. With this process, television will be set to its initial values before delivery. It will be proper to set Plug&Play tab after servicing. After pressing right key on the tab, EEPROMs will be loaded with factory defaults. TV can be shipped to the customer after this setting. Please note that any warning is not displayed or you do not have to exit the menu while Plug&Play is getting activated. You should be careful not to take the device into Plug&Play mode by mistake.
ATS (Automatic Tuning System) tab ensures that the channels are arranged in order after automatic search. However, there is a broadcast support to order the channels. It is active when “On” is selected. “On” should be selected in TF-chassis products.
SRS (Virtual multi-channel sound system) turns on and off SRS Tru-Surround XT HD feature. SRS Tru-Surround XT® creates a sound experience surrounding the user similar to 5+1 sound systems, thanks to multi-channel audio by using two loudspeakers produced by SRS company. SRS is an optional feature that can be selected upon the customer’s request.
BLUE BACK enables us to determine background when there is no picture on the screen. When "On" is selected, background will be blue; and when "Off" is selected background will be black or snowing. “On” should be selected in GRUNDIG brand products and “Off” in other products.
HOTEL tab should be set to "On" on hotel TVs, and it should be set to "Off" in other products. When the hotel model is "On", certain features designed for the hotel use are activated; the user cannot change the channels set by the service, for example, or the volume cannot be increased more than a certain level.
Beko, Arcelik and Grundig LCD TV Service mode, CI KEY VERIFY indicates if CI Key has been installed or not. This menu cannot be changed. This option should appear as “Pass” in the products with CI Plus feature. CI Key is the keyword on the card which is inserted to decrypt the broadcasting. This menu is a control indicator and changes automatically. This keyword is installed during TV production and it becomes a kind of ID for your TV when watching encrypted channels. TF-chassis products support CI+ feature.
Launched in 2008, it is a new encryption standard developed with the collaboration of consumer electronics and scrambled digital broadcasting companies. So far, it was possible to copy the programmes after decoding process; however, now they cannot be copied thanks to that main IC coming with the CI Plus has a key. In this system, broadcasting is initially decoded on CI card. The broadcasting transmitted to the main IC from the CI card is also encrypted and it is decoded with CI Key, which is a factory setting and different for each TV. Thus, there will be no free encrypted broadcasting on the bare line and encrypted broadcasting cannot be copied. C+ feature is standard in all the products with TF chassis.
The settings under source configuration tab determine which sources will be on and which ones will be off depending on customer demands. In the small size products, HDMI3 and HDMI4 are off in standard (NAVAIL); and the sources of DVD and USB can be adjusted optionally. In large size products, DVD will be off in standard. In the products with LOW feature, USB, HDMI2, HDMI3, HDMI4, AV2, COMPONENT and DVD sources will be selected off.
This menu contains configuration settings of TV. We may select amongst the menus that are being used and to be used on TV. These settings differ from the "System Configuration". This menu contains the changes which the user can directly observe.
To enter this menu, you should go to "TV configuration" from the service menu and enter the numbers 2, 3, 5, 6 in sequence.
TUNER menu contains the tuner types that can be used on TV. TF chassis currently works with “Alps” branded tuners.
Beko, Arcelik and Grundig LCD TV Service mode.
DVBT2 (Next generation digital terrestrial broadcasting modulation) can be selected as ON/OFF depending on the customer preference, in the countries that support DVBT2 digital terrestrial broadcasting. DVBT2 is selected OFF in the products to be used in the country. In our country, TRT makes DVBT2 test broadcasting in Ankara.
OSD Selection menu has "Grundig", "Beko", "Arçelik" and "OEM" selections. For Grundig products, “Grundig” is selected. This selection adds Grundig sign next to the user menu and remote control selection is “TP3”. TV brand should be selected in Beko and Arçelik products. This selection is automatically “YB1187R” in the remote control and several brand-specific menus are also added. For other brands, OEM should be selected. If the product is "Grundig", you can enter service menu by pressing "menu 8 5 0 0" keys. If "Beko", "Arçelik" or "OEM" is selected, you can use "menu and 9 3 0 1" keys.
Note: In the smaller size (19”-22”) products with TF chassis, when Arçelik, Beko or Grundig is selected under OSD selection tab, different remote control options will be displayed compared to large size products.
