Sounds like the main system control memory IC has damaged. Replace the same and check. It is a very small IC, having 8 solder terminals. Very cheap, and easy to get. Will look somewhat like this.

The number changes on the tv but the actual channel won't change

Go into the guide plus setup menu and find the question that asks "Do you have a cable box" . Answer it "NO". If it is set to "Yes" it will lock the set to a preset channel and it won't matter what number it shows on the front, it won't change channels.

Suddenly no sound & no picture overnight: is my TV dead?

If you have static siugnal, sure TV is not dead.

Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.

If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.

Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna.
Tune again the channels, and save the preset.
If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.

Try using the TV with a DVD.

If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.

Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.

Menu won't show.

sounds actually like it has had weather damage, sometimes water can get into a place it shouldnt on a tv, not shorting it out, but instead messing up in your case the numbers or menu screen, so i'd say it is best to take it to tyour nearest recycler, hope this helps.......jason

It's possible that V-chip is locked.. Go to the menu and see if the lock option is active... The backdoor password is 0-7-1-1 twice.. Entering it the first time, if it times out, will display "incorrect" just enter it again and it should ask you for a new password..
If that's not it let me know and we'll try a couple other things.
