    I just picked up a 20" Pansonic flat screen. I needed a tv for the den and this new Panasonic model has a really nice picture. I'm just a little bothered by the serious red push. Anyone know exactly how to fix it on a Panasonic? Thanks.

    I think Panny sets have changed in the past few years (my RPTV is almost 3 years and the code was different from recent sets IIRC - mine was something like turn vol to 0, change channel to 123 or 124, hit Action and Power (I think) on set).

    The easiest way is just to call the 800# for Panny and request a Service Manual. You'll need it anyway for the description of the values which are abbreviated in the service menu.

    Perhaps do a search for "serviceman mode" as that is what Panny officially calls the service menu. Do that here and at AVS. Also check out for any tips for Panny models.

    Good luck! And be sure to write down all values before changing anything!
