Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

TV staying on one channel only. Tried info, menu, mute power off. When it turned back on it showed the menu and option to reset, as per advice i have read on here. However the select / ok button on the remote does not seem to select the option, from what i read it is then supposed to switch itself off, when turned back on, it should then allow me to plug and play and start from the beginning as i did when it was first purchased. But it does not? :0( any advise welcome. Thanks in advance

I was watching it one day and the menu screen popped up and started scrolling through input options then selecting one at random and changing. I never touched the remote!!!

After selection an input option the input menu stays up until you push "exit". Then it reverts to the tv input option canceling out any other menu selection.

I did not receive a remote control with my NS-LCD32. Problem is we cannot turn off closed captioning. I realize their is a menu I can access on the side of the TV, however there is no option to turn OFF closed captioning. I have option to change how closed captioning looks with the menu and I have tried to do that but it always just looks the same. I really just want to turn CC off completely. Also the HDMI ports don't work at all... but I think we may have to live with that. Thanks in

I have a big screen Mitsubishi TV WS-55859. The green light on the front was blinking and the set wouldn't turn on. I read on the internet to replace the capacitors on the dm board. I did that and the set turned on but after awhile it tuned back off and the green light started flashing again and the set wouldn't turn on. If I unplug it and let it sit for awhile and then plug it in, it will flash green for awhile and then I can turn it back on. It stays on for about 5 minutes and then shuts down

I have a vizio vp50 hdtv20a. A while back we turned it on no picture and it started to smoke. After reading a little about it I decided to take off back panel and see if I could locate burnt part. Could not locate burnt part so repair man came and we plugged in set with back off and turned set on. Resisters on y main board started to get red and start to smoke.
