    I’ve got the same going on with my 42” Phil. Plasma, slightly different model though. I’ve pulled out the remote’s batteries, unplugged the TV, covered the IR port, plugged the TV back in (after a minute or two) and turned it on using the buttons on the TV. After 1-~8 seconds the menu pops up. I’ve powered the TV off & on, unplugged it, let it sit for several minutes, put the remote back together…and nothing resolves it. Every time, after 1 to about 8 seconds the menu pops up. Oddly, while navigating within the menu, it’ll jump back to the main menu randomly. The TV has been working fine for the past several years, including a 3-hour movie last night and a 45-minute kids video this morning. Now, it just fires up and pulls up the menu.

Hi There, Let's try to isolate the problem. Remove the battery from the remote control. With the battery removed from the remote control, let me know if the menu still appears. Thanks, Mike

The menu screen will not go away!


Try to push the menu button on the tv itself numerous times and see if it will go away (since the buttons are not used often they become resistive and it could be any button,if that dont fix it then the main digital board is bad.
