Menu pops up constantly

The menu will not stop popping up on screen, took batteries out of remote, not the remote causing the problem, and the menu button is not stuck on console. it did not do it yesterday, but saturday and today menu pops up every few seconds.

    I unhooked the button circuit board, and the menu stopped popping up,
    would it cause any problems later on down the road if i just leave it

Menu screen popping up

Remove the batteries, un-screw the back cover of your remote, you'll find a circuit board take that off, clean the other side of that board (the one painted green) with a cotton slighty wet with rubbing alcohol as well as the black carbon on your remote pad, let it dry put it back together replace with a new battery, I guess this'll work

Menu pops up while tv is on

Isolate the problem by removing the batteries from the remote. If the problem goes away replace the remote: "CHEAP" .
If the problem does not go away, the problem is in the TV, repair the TV "EXPENSIVE" !

The menu screen pops up and won't go away.

I see this alot at the shop common problem... the front conrtrol buttons have become damaged. you need to replace it. You can remove the front panel and leave it out until you can get the front keyboard cuicit board. Just use your remote to control the tv. to remove the board just remove the front middle panel via the t20 torx screws. then unplug the connector. You can get a new cuicit board via union electonics... you need the entire model number...r52wh73 yx1 or yx2 something like that it is in small letters on the same label as the large model number, Let me know if you need any more help on this repair.
