Question about Flat Panel Televisions
My TV displays the info message box at all times. The message reads:"Not available."
When trying to use info function, info box flickers on and then reverts to the "not available" message.
When trying to access display and audio controls the display continuously scans through the menu. It does not respond to inputs or allow access to any controls.
SOURCE: My Sharp Aquos 46" LCD
Digital inputs on Aquos TV's are "always on," usually the HDMI inputs and DVI inputs. As opposed to analog inputs 1, 2, or 3, are only activated once something is plugged in.
Try plugging in another HDMI sources into input4 or 5, if its still not working, the TV needs a new Main Board. Try calling Sharp 1-800-237-4277 and locating a local service center in your area.

My 360 and samsung hdtv worked fine for about a year and now im getting the problems mentioned above, not sure if its a console/cable/telly problem but i did the following (temporary?) fix
Unplug your 360 and plug it into another television set, it seems to reset/calibrate itself somehow and then when you plug it back into your samsung tv it will work - mine did but for how long i dont know.

Updating the Channel List Automatically You can update the channel list when the broadcaster adds new Services or if you move the TV to a new location.
1. Press the MENU button to display the menu. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select "Digital Menu", then press the ENTER button.
2. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select "Channel", then press the ENTER button.
3. Press the ENTER button again, to select "Country".
4. Select the appropriate country by pressing the ▲ or ▼ button. Press the ENTER button to confirm your choice. Even though you have changed the country setting in this menu, the country setting for Analogue TV is not changed. (Refer to page 11 of the user guide)
5. Press the ▲ or ▼ button again, to select "Auto Store". Press the ENTER button. When it has finished, the number of scanned services will be displayed.

I concur with Lightnbaby.... had same problem... my TV LNT4042HX/XAA took 10 min to start sometimes... the capacitors on the power supply board had bubbles on top 4 of them all 10/1000Uf. Samsung wanted to charge $220+ to have a guy come out and fix. J&J parts (samsung vendor) wanted $108 for a new board. I replaced the 4 capacitors for $4.68 and the TV works fine now!!!!!
