Question about Samsung HP-S4253 Television

1 Answer

Samsung TV HPS4253 menu continues to pop up randomly

Menu appears and disappears randomly while we are watching tv. Remote lets us exit when menu appears but we have been unable to figure out why it continues to pop up. We took the batteries out of the remote to make sure it wasn't the remote and covered the sensor on the TV to ensure it wasn't picking up random signals from something else. THe problem must be from within the TV. Any suggestions?

    electronick, thank you very much for the solution. I have noticed that the menu button on the TV does not work at all anymore. Is this consistant with a bad control pannel? Is it easy to disconnect the control pannel? If the control pannel is disconnected will the remote not work anymore? The TV seems to respond perfectly to the remote commands, but just randomly displays the menu. Since the button on the TV does not work, that may have something to do with the problem. Would you recommend disconnecting the TV buttons somehow? Thanks so much.

    Same exact problem. Confirmed menu button on the TV itself does not work.

Its probably the buttons (hopefully) you can open the tv and disconnect this control panel most of the time. Sometimes the remote (IR) signals go through this board. If the problem continues without board connected, its likely the main board = more expensive (100-300 $ part)

SOURCE: Menu screen keeps coming on

I hate to call Philips liars but the logic of the situation speaks for itself. If it was a software fault then your tv would have done this from day one and I bet it just started to do it out of the blue. I think it could be a faulty component on the board where the buttons are located. Hope this helps.

My grandson got hold of the tv remote and turned the pip feature on. we cannot turn it off. help!


Hey there..I had a PIP problem for the last 6 weeks and just solved it with this tip. The solution was in front of me all the time.

Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you

26PF5521D wont show menu after reseting factory defaults


Switch the TV to analogue mode (if possible)

Press and hold the "MENU" button on the side of the TV. The settings menu should appear. Continue to hold the menu button until this menu disappears. (If you let go before the menu disappears, start again)

The TV should now go blank for up to 2 minutes, and then revert to factory settings and intitial installation screen.

Procede as per original installation.
