We've had this tv for about a week.IWe have it wall mounted in a bedroom on the second floor of our house. This morning, with no one touching the remote, the menu for the input pops up on screen. It then started scrolling through the options and finally started selecting them (DVD, AV, etc). I switched the input back to TV and it did it again. This went on for about 15 minutes and then resolved itself. Is the TV on some sort of frequency that someone outside could be triggering? Another solution? Or should we be calling Ghost Hunters? hahaha. Seriously, though- what gives?

Re: Menu Appears "on it's own"
I have seen five types of causes for this type of fault. The fifth one is extremely unusual.
The uPC, and or the IR reciever and remote data amp circuits in the set went defective and started addressing functions from noise generation.
The control panel circuit board in the set has gone defective, and randomly addresses functions. (Sometimes people spill liquid inside while cleaning the set and damage this circuit board).
In the room, there are some compact fluorescent, or fluorescent lighting, and the frequencies from the lights are causing the IR addressing to malfunction.
The remote control itself is defective and sending commands. (Remove the batteries to test).
You have an unscrupulous neighbor that enjoys to annoy you, they can see your TV set in the window, and he or she is messing with it using a compatible remote! Very very rare to have this one! (Keep your curtains pulled to see if this fixes this type of fault).
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You would have to use a mounting bracket specifically designed for the type of installation you describe and it certainly would have to be fastened into the studs behind the sheetrock. A TV of that size will be heavy to lift and install in the bracket
Disconnect everything from the TV so no more wires are attached to it like cable or DVD or gaming console. Unplug the TV from the wall for over 2 minutes. Then plug only the TV back into the wall with nothing plugged into it, if the TV does not stay on then you have a defective TV. You might try moving the TV to a different part of the house to a plug on a different circuit/breaker like a bedroom to verify this.

The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil
