Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

The tv menu screen keeps popping on and off when watching TV. Sometimes the sound volume control screen will appear but you cannot control the volume. The set is only 4 months old.



Answers :

It should be under warranty still but if not and menu comes up on its own I would suspect a problem with the keyboard where the buttons are---they may look and feel fine but they usually are the cause of this kind of problem----In several cases I have had to remove individual micro switches under the buttons to confirm or deny this---if for example menu is disabled by removal of that switch (not the plastic button but the switch under it) then the set can be operated with the remote-----I would see about getting it fixed/replaced even if just out of warranty.

I have an old Global 4 remote control (2002). I had recently and successfully tuned it into my SilverCrest CT 2105-A television set. I do not know the code, so I followed the unknown code-scanning procedure. At some point, after 2 months approximately, it lost communication with my TV. I reestablished communication, as above, but it operates on my TV from a distance of only 10 cm and no further away. I have tried the following: (i) using new batteries. This showed no improvement.

1991 CS3515R has vertical instability. (picture often flips vertically. Seems worse when there is more light color on the screen. I remember old sets that had horrizontal and vertical stability controls. This does not. Anything I can do that would be cost effective? Otherwise it gets a beautiful picture.


By stability control do you mean the V-hold knob inside the tv? If not then the only way to fix this is to find the source of the fault in the deflection circuits. Be wary that this is a high voltage circuit and should not be handled unless you have ... Mitsubishi CS-35503 TV

My LG Flatron M2262D, about six months old, stopped working with the on screen message 'check signal cable'. I checked it by using it on another set, and it is perfect. Any ideas?

While re-setting the Display function it was accidently set for PAL viewing instead of NTSC. The image is now rolling vertically on the NTSC TV screen. Now, I cannot re-set the display functions because I cannot view the steps while the screen is unreadable. The manual does not supply a step-by-step link. Unplugging the player does not help. Inserting a standard NTSC DVD does not help. The menu cannot be viewed in order to clear it. Help!
