I am currently experiencing this exact same problem with my 47LG50. Since the original thread was posted more than three months ago, I imagine the original poster has had his/her issue resolved, but I can still relay what LG told me to try when I called them. Did it work for me? No. I have to call The Geek Squad with Best Buy (as the TV is no longer under manufacturer's warranty, but thankfully, we bought the extended warranty with BB), but it could work for some, according to the representative I spoke with.

Try taking the batteries out of the remote, and see if this resolves the issue alone. If not, try unplugging the TV entirely and holding the power button down (it's just under the power light, carefully hidden, and shaped like a smile) for at least 40 seconds. After that, plug the TV back in and power it up to see if it has resolved the issue with the flashing menus. Even if it seems to have done, you might want to leave it on and keep an eye on the screen for a while. I had mine abate for a little bit, but then it went right back to flashing menus. The issue of it powering on by itself will be pretty easy to notice if it is still doing it.

I hope this helps someone, although it didn't work for me. =)

No sound, remote locked or not working?? and i cant get the menu to work on the tv itself, the volume is stuck on 0, cant move HELP


The buttons on the front of the set fail, (like mine did) even if they never get used. Probably the 'DOWN Volume' in your case is stuck closed. Try pecking on it first. My remote stopped working but so did the manual buttons too. While poking around on stuff I swished my finger across the buttons and it all started working so I knew I was on to something. I never figured out which one was the culprit as it continued to cause problems and was replaced as a complete unit under warranty.

The other quick check/fix is to remove the trim plate around the button plate (pop out stays like the speaker covers) , then remove the button assembly (3 screws plus pop out stays like the speaker covers) then unplug the multi colored lead from the button circuit board. This puts the Remote back in control and it will work just fine like this, minus manual control of course.

Menus pops up


The menu button on the TV itself is bad and must be replaced ( or removed ). Alternatively the whole front button assembly can be disconnected. Just follow the wire back to the main chassis and unplug it.

RCA HDTV MENU AND VOLUME CONTROL POPS ON AND OFF SCREEN.


My TV was doing the same thing. Someone told me to disconnect the front menu buttons and this worked for me. The board goes haywire. You have to take off the front black panel on the bottom first then the grey front panel where the controls are. Once you do this you will see where there is a plug from tv to the panel where the control buttons are. Just disconnect. You will only be able to use your remote for TV. Its a cheap and easy fix. Just lots of screws to get the panels off and on. Good luck!

MENU SCREEN POPS UP, TV CHANGES CHANNELS, TURNS SOUND DOWN


Yes. Its probably a stuck button on the TV's front panel. Try pushing or wiggling each button on the panel. It could be the channel up/down buttons or volume up/down, menu, etc.

When there is a button that is making slight contact, it keeps the microprocessor busy attending to the command its erroneously receiving from the offending button and may not allow other functions to work when this occurs.

It doesn't matter which button is stuck, any of the symptoms you describe can happen.

10) Now press SELECT, then SELECT again to confirm the reset of the counter
