Question about Mitsubishi CS-36609 36" TV
Out of the blue the TV decided it wanted this mode and would not stop.
The message at the bottom of the screen reads:
Installing Guide Plus+ data now
Turn TV off during installation
CANCEL to abort
It stays at one of the kids channel for a while, starts running though the channels at about 3-5 second intervals, then turns itself off. I don't have the original remote control, therefore I have no CANCEL button to hit. I unplugged the TV for a coule hours, but that didn't change the situation.
I resolved this problem by programming a Logitech Harmony remote to have the settings of the original remote (that I cannot find). Once the remote was set to this TV the problem was easily solved by pressing the EXIT button on the remote. I would guess this means it would work with the original remote too. It is very strange that the front panel does not fix the problem and that only a remote can resolve. Good luck.

None of the above worked for me even with the original remote. That installation message will keep repeating if the cable line is not directly connected to the tv (the message and tv will flicker with static which means it's flipping through each channel about 120). I disconnected the line from the comcast box and put it in the tv and let it flip through all the channels (it had picture this time and no static once the line was directly in the tv). I then turned the tv off for 2 hours and the installization was done.

I got a philips "universal consolidator" that controls 4 devices. It cost me $10 and the quit buttton on it did the trick.

Buy a good universal remote and it will have the correct button, that's what I did, I got the Radio Shack 8-in-1 remote and programmed it and it got rid of it.
