Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

SOURCE: how can i get my tv to stop automatically changing to menu screen?

slapshot,
What you have there could be one of three possibilities. Micro, eprom or tact switches... Tact switches are the small contact switches behind the buttons you depress to turn the volume up and down or change the channel. Sometimes these small switches can become contaminated or breakdown due to corrosion. What we call in the industry a windex syndrom, because the older crts on some models had the swiches exposed just below the lower ridge of the cry where when cleaning the screen windex could drip down onto the switch and cause the corrosion to begin.
Eprom is another likely suspect. This Ic is responsible for storing an array of information including customer settings and other logics convert what the eprom stores into electronic pulses for any number of fuctions. For example press the volume down on your Tv and the eprom has the information to show you the volume bar, the level the volume bar was last set at and the increments at which you are reducing it realtime.
The Micro is another possibility. It acts like a traffic cop engaging various circuits to do or not do something according to a preset list of conditions. Timers, looking at a particular input or yes even bringing up the menu is tasked through the micro controller Ic or micro for short.
The fact that you can eventually get the unit to operate suggests that something in the logic circuit is failing and will in all likelyhood continue to do so until eventually it doesn't work at all...

I have a element tv and I can't get any channels programmed in but ch.3. It is hooked up to suddenlink box.i have tried autoscan and nothing


The suddenlink box transmits on channel 3 and is the only signal being transmitted. When the TV looks for all channels it will only see the one coming into it. This is normal because it is assumed you are controlling channels with the sudden link box, not the TV. If you are using an antennae then you need to go into the TV's setup menu and change the settings from cable to antennae.

Tip

Vizio Factory Menu


Vizio Tv's have an extra menu that contains factory settings which you can change or fix should you have a problem with your TV. Here's how to access the menu: 1. Hold down the CH+ (Channel Up) and the CH- (Channel Down) buttons on the TV. 2. While holding these buttons press the power button on the TV. 3. After the TV comes on, let go of the buttons, and enter the TV menu as usual. 4. You should now see a "F" in the lower right hand corner of the menu. (If not please repeat steps 1-3) 5. Hold down the menu button on your remote and the Factory Settings menu should appear. From this point you can tweak whatever settings you wish. *CAUTION* - Make sure that before you do anything you write down the settings before you change them. I have seen it mentioned that certain settings never be adjusted. Please search the internet regarding your problem before you do anything. A good resource is www.avsforum.com

When viewing images on TV the picture is vertically rolling.


Check the video setting in the set-up menu. It may be set to PAL if you are on the NTSC system, or vice versa. Also check the TV input to ensure your're on the correct channel.

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.
