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

There is a problem with the front control buttons. i see this quite often at the shop. the best way to deternmine this is to remove the buttons and use the remote to turn it on if it goes away then i would suggest replace the button cuicit board assembly

Menu keeps popping up on screen on 52 r5wh73

This sounds like the front panel assembly(FPA) switches are acting up. What happens with this model is the FPA switches start to conduct just as if someone was pressing the buttons. This in effect locks up the system control or causes it to do erratic things.
The way to determine if the FPA is bad is to remove it by unplugging from set. This requires front panel disasembly. Note:The remote will still work with the FPA removed so the set can be tested.
Also double check that the remote is not the problem by removing it from the room or removing the batteries
Let me know if you need more help or info.

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.

Buttons dont respond correctly

Sounds like one or more of the keypad buttons are sticking - That would also cause the remote control to stop functioning.When you saw "P:0 V:0" you somehow managed to put the tv into the service menu. Pull the keyboard away from the plastic buttons and make sure nothing is in the way.
