Need to do a hard reset, turn power off, then back on. Hold down [CLEAR], press the reset button on the back then release [CLEAR]. I found it in the manual for the Pro-2018.

1986 corvette no power to when key is turned Battery is at 13 volts and conections are good.

It is your vats system it is locking you out. It is not reading the ignition key chip. You can by-pass the system with $5:00 worth of parts from your local radio shack. You must read the resistance across your key chip first then go to radio shack and pick up the resistors needed to match your key chip(they will assist you mine read 1850 i have a 86 vette), twist/tie them together then solder & tape them up with electrical tape. Bend them into a u-shape, locate the the 2 wires that run to your vats logic module that is tied into your ecm, should be in the middle area of your dash next to your radio(yellow and brown in color. Cut those 2 wires and add your (radio shack) resistor series between them and happy motoring no more vats problems for ever. Good Luck

No sound can you show us the part that goes bad can you get it at radio shack

There is not just one part. There are various components that can fail. Sometimes its a defect with the main board (micro cracks contained in the inter-layers). Very few of these components are available at Radio Shack.
Once the defect is repaired, the cause needs to be addressed or it will reoccur. Identifying the cause takes years of experience.

For units 06 and newer, contact Iron Cross Audio.
For 05 and older, contact Radio Sound

The backlight to the display no longer works. The "bulb" seems to be burned out. Is this going to be a cost-effective repair...?

The backlight in your scanner is an 8volt bulb, but your scanner is 10 years old, and the exact replacement is no longer carried by radio Shack. You can, however, replace it with a 6volt 25ma bulb, Radio Shack catalog number 272-1140. Replacing it is fairly simple if you're at all handy with electronics and a soldering iron. Contact your local RS to purchase or order the bulb, and I'm certain that they can have it installed if you're not up to trying it yourself.

I have an lg 42inch plasma and now a vertical black line running down centre of screen about 2 inch thick

I had the same problem with a five year old 50" LG Plasma. I fixed the problem with a 11 dollar soldering iron from Radio Shack and about 2 hours of my night. You have to open the back of the tv and locate where the ribbon strips are attached to the screen. I beleive that on your 42" they will be on the bottom of the tv. Mine had 11 on top and 11 on bottom. Yours will probably have around 7 or 8 along the bottom. Mine was a little easier since I did not have to remove the control board. You unfortunately probably will have to remove it. It is not hard at all, just takes more time. Make sure to keep your screws seperated and remember where everything goes. On bigger jobs some tape and a marker are very useful. Put tape on the board and around the wires removed and leave a tail. This way tou will remember to hook them all back up. Once you find the ribbon strips you have to remove them one by one and look at what is behind the metal place. There will be 4 capacitors and 4 resistors. The tv manufacturers want you to buy new tv's every 5 to 10 years so they use a very cheap solder on their contacts. Use you soldering iron and re-heat the solder to liquify it again and thats it. Allow time to cool on each of the caps and resistors. It took me about 1 to 2 seconds on each side of these parts. I did use a dual wattage soldering iron from radio shack. Its is a 25 and 35 watt iron. I used the higher setting. I have pictures if you would like me to email them to you and show you what I did. Be careful removing the ribbon strips, I broke one of the clips that hold in the ribbon strip. That is costing me an extra 25 dollars off ebay but still for a free tv, its not bad.

Sony rear projection tv How to de-solder

I would suggest not to desolder that transformer until you are certain that is defective.
Try to change D6116 and D6301 first.
You can try Radio Shack or check this site.
Good Luck.
