Tv wont respond because device menu is changing through each device

The TV wont respond to remote controls and the Device menu is stuck changing through each device while staying on the original connection (Ant A). I've tried resetting even unplugging for a prolonged period of time.

    I have the same problem. Just turned on the TV one morning and the device menu is stuck and scrolls through all the devices.

    TV is changing through the device menu and it keeps going through all of the devices and it will not respond to the remote control, I have already changed the batteries and hit the reset button several times but no luck. The TV will only turn on and off with the button on the front control panel. It will not let me change channels or adjust the volume.

    Same problem. Guess I'll have to call in for repair. Hope it doesn't cost a fortune.

    I have the same issue and it started about two weeks ago. I have tried multiple times with no luck. Sound and power are fine but the device menu is scrolling through all icons just going crazy. I did all of the same things that you did without any luck. Did any of you find out via a technician what this issue was? Just curious.



    Thanks!

    Exact same problem. Just started and no response from remote. Looking forward to any solutions or knowledge of any defective part(s) that is causing the problem.

    Same exact problem. No solutions yet?  Been on hold with Pauls TV for 40 minutes.

    I too have the Mitsubishi 55511 and the Device Selection Menu is jumping through the selections and the menu will not stay displayed. It disappears as soon as it displays and I have to keep hitting the Device Button to bring it back up to make a quick selection. I also couldn't access HDTV at all.



    Now, as of last night, the remote won't even work and I can't control my television at all.

I had a similar problem: my WS-55511 would not respond to the remote and the front control buttons (with the exception of Power) cycled through the Device Menu. I solved this problem by disconnecting the front panel. Here's how to do it: 0. Unplug the TV
1. Remove the speaker grill from the front by pulling forward: there are no screws. 2. Disconnect the two cables that are exposed after the grill is removed. 3. Plug the TV back in, wait for 5 minutes to reset. 4. Try using the remote.  Hope this helps!

Samsung lcd tv can't find a source, buttons on remote control don't respond, nor buttons on the control panel on the right side of the TV device


consult the owner manual or call Samsung---this set likely has a lockout feature that locks both the remote and the keyboard out.

You might also want to research this by taking the model number and Google key words "remote lockout" etc.

Device menu stuck


This sounds like the 'Other' connection jack has a bad internal switch. This switch in the connector tells the TV there is a device plugged into the external connections. A technician should be able to disable the 'Other' jack so it cannot be used. Try a service shop or even a technician friend for help.

T. V. stuck on one channel showing the device option.


I had same problem and discovered one of the little buttons on the front of the TV was stuck down. Don't know why, unless the maid bumped it hard as we never use them. Anyway, I poked/wiggled a few times at each button and the problem stopped.

I've got a samsung le32m8 tv. the remote is not working light flickers on remote and tv but nothing happens. the power button is the only one working


You should try another remote to determine if the remote is actually defective, or there is a fault in the TV set. I have seen both scenarios, of either the TV was defective, or the remote was defective.

I suspect the remote to be defective more than the TV having a problem. The reason is that you can use the remote to turn the power on and off in the first place. This means that in the TV the IR receiver module, and the remote circuit processing to the uPC is responding.

If it is not the remote that is defective and the TV's IR path is responding, there are several other possibilities. There may be lockout function in the user menu that locks out the main controls from the remote. There may be some other type of defect with the uPC system controller. This can be firmware, or some type of hardware failure which would be a bad device in this area on the circuit board.

There are control circuits for the functions in your set. In most TV sets they are shared with the front panel controls. There could be a fault in this area as well.

Anything past trying another remote to verify the remote functionality of the TV, and checking the user menu for a lockout feature, will indicate that there will be the requirement for technical service.

Tv ws-65511 volume stuck


Did you ever get this problem fixed? Ours just started doing the same thing. It worked fine the night before, but today it's doing what yours is doing. The remote stopped working for the TV. The remote still works for the cable box, but volume and anything related to TV function not. The screen flashes when we try to adjust volume or anything else, but resets to previous volume. TV not responding to any commands either on the front panel or remote.
Any ideas? Thanks, Patti

Device Menu not working


Could have a stuck button or a corrupt e-prom, but lets try kicking this set in the head, Now these reset codes are model dependent so this code will not work for every set out there but this reset is for the WD-62525. with the set on and with the original TV remote hit the keys in this sequence, MENU-2-4-7-0 this will bring up a service menu, the cruiser should already be on "Initialize" so simply hit enter. this will reset the TV to factory defaults and may fix your problem
