Hi. I bought a used obscure Nextier 42" Plasma NP-42H4 cheap.
I was tinkering with it trying to find a service menu.
All i found was how to do a factory reset. By holding in INPUT & MENU & VOL- then press POWER on the plasma.
And how to choose what "panel" to use by holding in VOL+ & CH- & CH+ while its on.

Problem is that the TV Tuner is gone now!. Its missing from the input menu.
Anyone have a tip on how to get it back? Must be a way..
Tried to search for tips but no luck. And i cant find a working email to "nextier" as they seem to be hiding or changing names.

Have not seen or heard of this Brand.
Check on the sticker on the back and see if you can see who the manufacturer is.

Just sais

NEXTIER
PDP Monitor TV
Model NP-42H4E0

How ever i unscrewed the backplate to check the mainboard.
Its a "np-42s4 main 04 b" and thats a regular Philips board.
Exactly like this one
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Philips-MAIN-DIGITAL-PROCESSING-BOARD-NP-42S4-MAIN-03-B_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ260243533706

So i hope it has the same command to get into the service menu. :)

Edit: The codes on this forum didnt work.
Downloaded the manual for the Philips BDH4241V. It has the exact same specification, menu system and exactly the same crappy remote.

Just wondering, why in the world would you want to enter a technical service menu without a specific reason. That area of any current technology tv set gets just about everyone in difficulty.

Also. Guessing how to enter a service mode has the potential of physically damaging your set. On LCD sets I have seen the panel controllers damaged by making a wrong choice. (I know you have a plasma but the danger is still there) Please do not get me wrong, I have always been a person the believes that everyone should have the right to repair, or screw up, their own tv set.

That being said, with your help in identifying the set, you must have downloaded the operators manual as the technical manual will always have service menu methods. I downloaded the techmanual and now
I need to know if you have one or two tuners in the set. there are two different procedures available depending on this.

Why?.. I was curious.. :oops:
Only one tuner is installed.. There is solder points for the other right next to it.
Problem is that it doesnt seem to be using the installed one.

Here is the exact wording to solve your problem:

1) Model of One Tuner Setting [Depend on Model]
(1) TV Input can be added up through processing below method.
(2) Please keep pushing [Power] + [CH+] button in 7 ~ 8 second after pushing [Power] button.
(3) Please operate adjustment and inspection by selecting TV Input after checking that TV Input was added up by pushing [INPUT] button.
(4) TV Input can be deleted through processing below method.
(5) Please keep pushing [Power] + [CH-] button in 7 ~ 8 second after pushing [Power} button
(6) Please check that TV input was gone by pushing [Input] button and then select the Scart1 input for operating adjustment and inspection.

Obviously this was written by a person coming from overseas with a STROOONG touch of inverse thinking.

Good luck on this

Thanks a billion! It worked like a charm and saved my plasma :D
And is there a service menu hidden somewhere?
EDIT: No it doesnt look like it. I got ahold of the service manual.
Strange that they dont mention that "factory reset" i found out by trial & error. :)
It does reset it. Power on count is 0 and all settings are gone.

Theres even 4 hidden buttons on the remote. One lets one chose "panel" and other displays power on count, third calibrates the analoge inputs and the 4th i dont know..

Well thanks alot :)

Hi. I know this is an old thread (and I will also post a new one), but I wondered if someone here could tell me where to get a manual for one of these.?

I have a picture flaring problem and its been suggested that it may be power supply(?), but I would like a manual so I can check a few things before diving in..

Mine is;
Bluesky BS4206 BP HD
Main board is labelled;
WooSUNG Nextier Corp. NP-42S4-MAIN-02

Interesting that its the same as a Philips. The tuners on the board have Samsung written on them, so its a bit of a badge-mongrel maybe.?

If anyone can help with any info, I would be very grateful. Thanks.
