    i tried changing the batteries, but I'm having the same problem as the other guest. The menu screen keeps coming up

    YES! My 42" Philips does the same. Just started today (9.6.8). This after spending $500+ to fix the TV from just going black (about a month out of the 1 year warrranty). Philips and the 42" plasmas appear to have a history of defects. Why in the world is it acceptable for these large corporations to spew such defective junk without immediate financial and legal repercussions? Is it possible they knew of the defects, yet persisted to unload them at Costco, etc? I understand "buyer beware" but if a company knowingly sells defective merchandise I believe they should be prevented from selling in the US. Maybe the RICO act applies? -) Remember when TVs and refrigerators lasted a generation? So, with all of our modern wizardry and techno-Wall Street merchants how is it we wind up with some much junk? How can the corporations not know?

My panasonic tv model TC32LX85 N has self check and wont go away?


To Exit Self-check Screen
  • Press and Hold Power button on the TV for 5 seconds [or] disconnect the AC cord from wall socket.
TV volume down and OK on the remote only does a basic IC self check. It do not rest the TV. It do not clear channel programmed settings, picture settings, channel labels, lock settings or password. Using this method, it shows the units' firmware version [Peaks 1.050 and GenX 1.00] and it checks the IC communications only. This is more useful to identify the firmware version, without having to decode the info in the setup menu about version/screen.

TO RESET THE UNIT
  • To make a reset to TV, turn it ON while pressing the [Volume-ve] button on the main unit, and press the 'Menu' button on the remote control for more than 3 seconds. The self check menu appear on the screen. Then disconnect the AC cord from the wall outlet. [ALL PROGRAMMED PARAMETERS WILL BE ERASED]

Tv PROBLEM


The black box your are seeing on the screen is the box to display text. It is listed under your "cc" closed captioning setting as T1, T2 etc. Go into your closed captioning and shut off the text. You can still leave closed captioning on or off. The text system was never really used but they put it on all of the TV's.
