Question about Televison & Video
I have a UMC TV that keeps scanning every time I turn it on. It says not to turn it off and let the scanning finish, but then once it gets to 100%, it just starts again from 0%. Any ideas on what's wrong with it, how I can fix it, or how to set it back to factory settings?

Your TV may have been put into shop
mode or demo mode.
How to get out of "Shop
1. Press [Source] to get to the Air or Cable input on the TV or TV remote
2. Press [Volume +] once on the TV itself (not the remote)
Next step must be completed while the volume bar is still on screen
3. Press and hold [Menu] on the TV itself (not the remote) for about 7 seconds
If the screen flashes "Dynamic Mode", the process worked
4. Finally check whether the Picture Mode is "Shop Mode" or not after passing "INFO" on Remote Control. If picture mode is still in “Shop Mode” try the alternative way below
Press [Source] on TV remote to get to the AIR or CABLE input
Press [Down Arrow] to highlight SETUP and press [Enter]
Press [Enter] again on PLUG AND PLAY
Wait 10 seconds
Press [Enter] to select ENGLISH (or choose an alternative language
Press [Right Arrow] to highlight HOME and press [Enter]
Press [Menu] repeatedly until you see the message ENJOY YOUR WATCHING
Confirm you are out of shop mode by pressing [Info] on the TV remote

Hi Ziggy. Firmware issue on your main AV board my friend. I have heard of this with UMCs before.
You could try a factory reset. If that doesn't work, you could try updating the firmware with a usb flash drive - you would have to find the firmware for your particular model from the manufacturer's website (assuming they have one).
If that doesn't work:
Obviously, if it is under warranty contact the seller or the manufacturer and they should sort it out for you.
If it is out of warranty then you could try replacing your AV board. Spare parts from TVs damaged in transit or used parts are often listed on eBay and other specialist TV parts websites.
You would have to open the back - remember to UNPLUG IT FIRST - and you're looking for the big circuit board that has all the video inputs in. Find the part number on it and search it on eBay or a site like www.flattvparts.co.uk - replace the board and (assuming they sent you a working board) that should solve your issue.
