I have an LG 42PG60UD. I am unable to access the menu on this set which I have had since new. If you press the menu button on the remote or the bottom of the set, the menu bar comes up on the screen. If you try then to select any of the sub menus, highlight them and press enter, the TV reverts back to normal viewing and the menu icons disappear.

I recently purchased a used Pioneer Pro150FD and was told it worked. Now that I have plugged it in, I get a clicking that the power is on, but there is nothing coming on the screen. I also see a small red light illuminating from within (through the back panel) when the power is switched on. I am using a "osiris" remote that came with it and the control says "PIONR" but the switch doesno't work. I have installed new batteries in the remote. Any thoughts?

Upon my return from being out of town yesterday, when I turned on the Phillips 50PF9830A flat screen TV (circa 2005, but has worked perfectly all this time), the settings MENU popped onto the screen, and will not go away.

I had sound but no picture on my Element Electronic FLX 3211B LCD Television Set. I replaced two capacitors, and now I have lit screen by turning on the tv on the side panel. Remote does not control the tv and no indicator light are on. But the tv screen is lit. the indicator light and the remote controlling the set may be the same problem. Does anyone know how to fix this ?

My Durabrand dwt1304 was hooked up to cable. I now have relocated the TV into my workshop and am attempting to hook it up to a digital converter and an antenna. Turning the TV on, I am getting a "Helpful Hints" message on the screen that asks if I have performed an "AUTO PRESET CH". I found this on the remote's menu and ran it, after which the screen gets the message, "NO TV SIGNALS". At that point, I can get the TV to do nothing else.
