Crazy menu, comes on periodically without using remote

My 52 RCA rearprojection TV is 5 years old. Has been running well until the last few weeks when I changed the remote batteries. I have an aftermarket remote that has worked flawlessly for the last 2 years. now, whether there are bats in the remote or not, the menu comes on uncontrollably and the remote no longer controls the tv. even when I turn it on using the front panel buttons the menu will not turn off. the tv can not be used at all without the menu coming on. !!

If the convergence option is still visible under the picture settings in the menu. Then the problem will usually be related to the convergence power supply board, which is the board on the far left which is suspended over the main chassis.

Menus pops up

The menu button on the TV itself is bad and must be replaced ( or removed ). Alternatively the whole front button assembly can be disconnected. Just follow the wire back to the main chassis and unplug it.

RCA 52" Menu Keeps Popping Up and Down

I see this alot at the shop ... the front panel buttons have become damaged. THe best coarse of action is to replace the front button cuircit board assembly... **** there is a tempery fix untill you get the part... remove the front panel and take button cuicit board out...just use remote to control the tv. This is also a way to test to see if this is the problem.. if you romove the connector to the buttons and the problem goes away then the buttons are the problem. you get get this cuicit board at union electronics. You have to get the extended model number off the back ussally d52w20yx1 or yx2 or yxsomething...not to difficult a repair

My rca 52 inch hdtv turns itself off after a few minutes

Sounds like the green tube shorting intermittantly. Have a qualified tech use a tube restorer to check for shorts, or the loss of the 300v line to the green tube.
