Question about Memorex MLT3221 32 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Can not access menu or input functions

Turn tv on, fte display Memorex very quickly, then goes black. No buttons on remote nor TV work except power. I have the MLTD3222 which is same except DVD player on side. I can not change input because nothing displays when I push it. I had my cable box hooked up with HDMI, speakers turned off as sound was going optic output to receiver...I got sound but no picture. So I tried component, composite, etc. but nothing worked because I can not get TV to display input function to change input source. I have unplugged the TV and all that to try and get it back to out-of-the box settings, but it just displays Memorex real fast and that is it.

    i have a similar problem only on the 32" with dvd/usb combo. only the power button on the tv or remote seem to do anything and all that happens is a quick showing of the memorex label then black. had a back light problem with a laptop once which was just like an extremly dark screen and u could vaguely see outlines, not getting anything but black with this.

    I can not see anything. Flashlight causes a lot of glare. I did notice that I could see Memorex as it faded using flashlight, but screen then goes absolutely pitch black. I can not get sound...problem is I had speakers turned off as I had sound output through optic into receiver. Since I can not see menu settings, I can not change this. I did have sound when I first noticed issue with no picture, but pushing too many buttons has changed the input for sure. Is there a user fix for this or is this more than likely a "take it into service" issue?

    I started trying every possible input, and got video 2 to give me sound (still no picture). Oddly, when I unplug yellow video feed, I lose sound...not sure why that is since red and white are for sound. Anyways, without a picture, I am still stuck. Even attempting to change input does not seem to change anything. It is stuck on accepting only video two...and only for sound. Wish there was a reset button for thing. Only had this 3 months.

    I turn on the tv, the Memorex logo flashes on screen for maybe a second before the screen goes black. After 5-8 seconds, there is sound, but still no image.

Hi rduncan27,
I will be happy to help. 88% of LCD tv problems are with the backlight, the symptoms you described indicate a probable inverter malfunction. Lets do a simple test to check the functionality.

  1. Get the tv to a point that it is producing sound.
  2. Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen.
  3. Look very closely for a dark video image.
Let me know your findings and we can proceed from there.

    The only reset is to leave unplugged, I would leave it overnight.
    Without taking the back cover off and doing voltafe checks it is very difficult to diagnose.
    Since the Memorex logo shows on the screen it probably is not the backlight, seems like maybe a main board issue.
    The parts are fairly cheap at Shopjimmy.com but without actually troubleshooting you don't know what to buy.


    I will take a look at the parts and get back to you.

    Is the tv still under warranty?
    If so call cutomer service and let them know, it could be something as simple as a firmware upgrade.
    The symtoms now indicate an input board issue, im not sure if the input is built into the main board but I will check.

I am having the same problem... never happened before and I've had the TV for about 2 years. I tried unplugging it for about an hour and plugging back in, but not working. Will try it overnight and see what happens.... *sigh*

How do I bring the menu up on a zenith VCR combo without the remote


Without a remote control you can't. To select a suitable replacement remote control, you should be aware about the set up codes for your device brand. To know more about it, visit the sites linked here. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Being there is no menu button at the front panel of your TV, without a remote control you can't select it's inputs. Universal remote controls are available by some online shopping centers too. Visit some of them.
Good luck

One for all universal remote i am trying to program my seiki television. I lost the original remote and the power button on the television is broken so I cant turn the television on


Always better to buy a genuine replacement. The problem is that if I remember correctly, Seiki don't actually make the television, which is why it never features in the Remote Code Lists. I have just checked three sites.

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

My tv remote for my 55" philips smart tv stopped working, how can i fix this?


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.
