Question about Televison & Video
TV has been connected to Verizon SD STB for almost 3 years. All of a sudden, TV on its own switches itself to menu mode and scrolls the options, including TV, HDMI, Video 1, 2,3, etc. Will not hold selection of video 1 (verizon STB) or TV. Yesterday, on its own, it began to increase volume to MAX. Whenever I use the Verizon or Panasonic remote to lower the volume, it immediately returns to MAX, Even when I Mute the set, after a few seconds, it overrides and starts to increase volume again to MAX. It seems the TV is now possessed and the only control over it I have now is to turn it on or off. Any advice?

I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.
On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh

You need to select setup from the TV menu then switch the Viera link on. I think retuning must have switched it off.
This worked for me
