    Does anybody know how to get into the service menu of the Panasonic
    TX28DT4 (the one with built in Freeview decoder)? Believe it is the
    Euro 10D chassis.

    I've tried the usual Panasonic procedure, namely

    Bass Max
    Treble Min
    Hold down info on remote and press '-' on TV.

    This appears to bring up a self-test menu, with everything passing OK,
    but I can't get any further from there. The normal procedure would be
    to use the Fastext buttons to navigate around, but they don't do
    anything.

    Upon leaving this 'self test' menu, the TV has lost all tuning and
    settings have been returned to default positions.

    I reckon that there is another key combination somewhere to get into
    the actual adjustments menu, but I don't know what it might be. All I
    want to do is turn down the picture height a bit.

    Cheers,

    Bill

    Been stated many times in this and other news groups. Customers should not
    be given access information to any setup menus. Reason, just what you
    currently are experiencing now. Contact a Panasonic Service Facility and
    have them tell you how much it will cost to have a Professional Technician,
    who has access to the appropriate service literature, come out and enter
    appropriate parameters values for your particular set and chassis. Sorry
    Mate, I'm not trying to be argumentative but even the trained technicians
    will not adjust these parameters unless first they have written down the
    original values for their reference or have the appreciate literature that
    covers complete adjustment procedures. I wish there were a majic combination
    of buttons that could un-do your current situation but that does not seem to
    be an available option from Panasonic,

    I'd like to point point out that I'm a professional television and
    videotape engineer, have been so for 14 years and am in charge of
    several others..

    I do this sort of stuff day in day out for a living using the
    appropriate manuals, and know what I'm doing and most of the pitfalls
    to expect., I just don't happen to have the service manual for this
    particular model, which is my TV at home, and I can't exactly expect
    the company to pay for it!

    I fully take your point that such information should not be available
    to all and sundry, but not wishing to sound big-headed, I do not class
    myself as such for the reasons stated above.

    Yupper Pete and Willie, We like to cover our postier!!! If we freely give
    out the information and you fubar your equipment then you flippin blame us.
    Buy the damn manual from the manufacturer. Then experiment to your flippin
    heart's content. Responsibility goes both ways guys!!! Companies and
    Professional Technicians that have paid to become authorized servicers,
    either with time and experience working on a particular product line or with
    $$$. Result is we guard the information that is in out possession to allow
    us to make a living servicing these products. If you don't understand that
    fact maybe you had better take up a course on basic fiscal responsibility.
    Second reason, we do not want some incompetents suing us because we gave
    them proper information and they damaged either themselves or their product.
    This is why many service companies refuse to sell parts to the general
    public, because in today's world, you can be held liable for giving
    information, let alone selling components. Nothing personal; Bill in his
    response stated he is indeed a servicer, if indeed he is a servicer then he
    has access to the source for the information he requires, from the
    manufacturer. Key codex includes action,cable,timer,channel selection, power
    button, etc. Hopefully you can understand the intent.
