How do I fix Emerson flat screen problem?

My Grandson came over today and sprayed febreeze all over the screen and it dripped down in between the screen and case, now volume is stuck at 100 and TV runs through the menu settings really fast and wont stop, I used the cool shot setting on hair dryer and set it outside on my warm porch all day to try and help it dry out but it is still doing it,is there a fixable solution?

SOURCE: Emerson flat screen tv with red stripe

The pixels on your screen are controlled by a matrix composed of switches that turn off and on to produce light.

They are located vertically and horizontally, row-wise and must function together to produce everything from black (everything turned on so no light, or very little, can escape) to layers that represent the three colors that are used alone or in combination to produce the millions of possible shades of each.

One of the switches that controls one of the vertical columns has failed and has turned on the entire column that allows red to display.

The problem switch (a semiconductor combined with many) is permanently turned on, probably part of the screen assembly itself, and was placed with others by robots.
The pin spacing on these 'chips' is very small and often makes the assembly unrepairable.

While LCD panels have fallen hugely in price, you may be looking at a parts cost (labor is probably not too bad) that may make you decide to replace the set.

Unfortunately, the once-proud Emerson name has sadly been degraded and there is a lot of their electronics available from companies that specialize in 'refurbished' products, an indication that they have a large failure rate.

SOURCE: no volume on my Samsung 50" flat screen

Go check up the settings. First disconnect all appliances and then reconnect when power off. Configure connection when power on.
See your manual. You use the analog tuner or digital cable or satelte receiver to watch TV. If external digital decoder check your settings there. They are independend and might be low or muted sound level or incorrect setting.

SOURCE: have to turn the volume to 80-100 to hear the tv in my bedroom

If it's just playing DVD's that the volume is low some DVD players have their own volume control.
You could look at the back of your tv and see if the dvd or psp is hooked up to a "line in" or a 'variable' input. The Line in is a constant audio source. The variable will be also affected by the volume on the TV.

Picture has white strip down center,mostly black on rest of screen.child sprayed febreeze on screen,felt wetness on bottom of tv

Hi Lance,
This is the sad story of many a Flat Panel TV owners. You must never spray any liquid on the screen because it seeps through the frame, reaches the delicate electronics inside and causes permanent damage. Please let the TV dry up in the sun for some hours and see if there is any improvement. If it does not work I am afraid the damage is permanent. Last resort, you can ask some local Tech to open and try cleaning the seepage.
Good Luck.

My son sprayed febreze on my laptop and it is in the screen. What do I do to fix it?

I would try screen-cleaning wipes. If this doesn't clear up the screen, or if the Febreeze "etched" the screen, it may not be cleanable. If this make it unusable, the screen -can- be replaced

Screen issues

A new screen is prohibitive in cost.
put 90% isoprophyl alcohol in a spray bottle;
Spray it where the febreeze went, really saturate it, then let the set sit for 24 hours before you turn it on.
This usually works; if not you must disassemble the screen and, difuser screens from the television.
