Freezing issues on start-up

When I initially turn the tv on either I do not get any picture or the picture I get is frozen. The TV will not respond to any changes from the remote except to power off, and even then I have to hold he power button for like 5 seconds. The TV will then shut off. When I power the TV back on it works just fine.

    Sometimes the picture will freeze on start-up and no other function except the off switch will work.

My TV is frozen on BBC4 "media initializing" what can I do?


Power off the tv. Unplug it from the wall and let it set for a good 5-10 minutes for a hard reset on the tv. If you have a cable box then do the same to it. It sounds like the whole system needs a hard reset.

After initial set up and download, TV is displaying a hand on power plug picture with a red circle and line through it and a refresh symbol in light blue next to it, what does this mean?


Hi! and Welcome to Fixya!

What you have on the tv screen is a warning sign that your tv is currently updating its software. A hand holding a power plug with red circle on it says do not unplug the tv while its running the software update. The usual time for the update to finish is 60 minutes. It may took more than 60 minutes if you have a slow internet speed. This is normal especially if you are running the software update for the first time during the initial setup. The next time tv performs software updates it will take shorter time.

However, if the updates took more than two hours, the tv may be frozen. You can unplug and plug it back in and start from the initial setup again.

On some rare occasion, the tv may not proceed with the initial setup. You may have to turn off your modem to complete the initial setup. when initial setup is done, connect your tv to network and run software update again.

Let me know if you still have other questions.

Why has my JMB TV stopped responding to the remote control?


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. 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. Surf the site with patience.

VW37L 37 in. LCD HDTV input button wont work


Have you find out if the problem is with your remote control? For instance, you are able to control your TV using a Universal remote control. My 32" Vizio TV had a similar problem, initially thought it was related to my remote control but in fact the TV didn't respond either to an universal remote control of my SAT receiver that I eventually use to just turn on and off the TV. I've found out that the problem was with a little board on the TV located at the left down corner viewed from the front side of the TV and that receives the signal from the remote control. I found the board on ebay for about $5, replace it and the TV responded again to both original and universal remotes.

Screen is frozen on with no picture and no sound. Does not respond to either remote control or manual controls. The tv did work and then after a few minutes went frozen.


You need to move further south if it is frozen. It's cold up north :-)

If you've pulled the power from this tv (power cycled it) and it still has this problem ... frozen with no picture and no sound. How a screen can be frozen with no picture, I'm not sure. But it sounds like you are going to be on your way to the repair shop. Or to buy a new tv.

If I couldn't see and couldn't hear, how would I know you were even here?
