    I have the same problem with the same model. I've tried leaving it unplugged over night & resetting it to the factory defaults, but nothing has worked.

    I also have the same problem with my 2002 manufactured sony trinitron, and after a few days the initial set up box came on so often we could no longer watch a tv show and then the tv began rapidly switching itself between video1,2,3,4 and the tv program I was watching. I have tried unplugging the tv, changing the batteries in the remote, vacuuming the tv to remove dust and nothing has resolved the problem. We now have my RCA tv bought in 1998 in its place for now.

    I also have the same problem. The auto program screen keeps coming on and off. But I dont have the problem with the channels changing. It is so bad I cant even watch a tv show anymore.

    I also have the initial setup box come up in the center of the screne. It is intermittent, annoying and making the TV unacceptable to watch. Tried power disconnect and reset, nothing has worked yet. Comments please

    I have the exact same problem. It is amazingly frustrating to watch TV now. Is there anything we can do to fix this issue?

    I have the same problem, did you find a solution?

  • Anonymous May 29, 2008

    hi, i have the same problem :-( now we are at the point where the remote doesn't work anymore either. i have to adjust the volume on the set itself and had to hurry up to set the time and timer again without the initial setup screen blinking in (we unplugged the set because we thought maybe it needs a break). and all of the sudden it changes from tv mode in one of the video modes (sometimes video 1, sometimes 4 ...)
    any new tips except the board to change??

I have a samsung tv model numbertxb2735 and i cant seem to auto program channels. I bought a universal remote and all that pops up when i press the menu button is how to set the timer. i need help!!

Universals are hardly universal----if you want results here buy an original remote from Samsung---yes will cost more but will work---your time and aggravation are worth something if can be avoided.

Sony Trinitron turns on in the middle of the night for no reason

maybe the people next door have a powerful remote, and when they turn their tv off a night it turns yours on?

Set-up screen keeps popping up

This might not be a solution but it is a suggestion,your set by now has many loose conections this is as true as your name Less,I would suggest to go in looking for loose conections and overheated ares,while you are looking check the horizontal driver transformer and make sure all 4 legs are solid,this is only as a preventive maintenace,as far as the reason why is doing what is doing I got a feeling you will find an intermitant conection.If you are not familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance.It should not be expensive.

Initial Set up image

I am having this same problem. It seemed to clear up on its own at first, but it has since returned. It seems to occur most often after the TV has been on for a couple of hours. I contacted Sony Tech cupport and they recommend having the set serviced. I haven't yet, since it seemed to "fix itself," but now that the issue has resurfaced I'm likely to take it in unless someone has a suggestion as to what is causing it, and how to resolve it.
