Question about Philips 42FD9954 42 in. Plasma HDTV
The tv, on its own, repeatedly switches to the main menu for setup/installation. tv worked fine in the past, but now its doing this every few seconds. after exiting the menu, it comes back up... tried getting remote away from tv, thinking maybe a button was stuck on the remote... didn't help. cable company didn't help either.
Gotta love the internet for problem solving! I just did the software update as described above for the same problem - so far so good. Thanks!

We just completed the software/firmware and absolutely resolved the problem. Took about 15 minutes total. Thanks for the solutions!

I had the same problem and did just what tucker50 suggested last night.. I downloaded the owners manual from this site.. and then printed out the page that gave the simple directions of the software/firmware... I put the up-grade on my flash stick.. plugged it into the side of my TV and then powered it on.. when it was done I removed the stick and re-powered. It did not work the first time and I was bummed.. so I put the stick in and re-powered... and it works PERFECTLY! I couldn't believe it.. I had been stuck with that menu issue for over a week.. and could not even watch my PLASMA... So, Tucker50 you did me proud! Oilcan

I did update the software/fiirmware a few days later and that resolved the problem. I had wanted to post my solution but had trouble finding this post until your response so thanks.
