    I have a different size tv, but the same problem. It seems to happen at random intervals, and not as bad as every 5 seconds, but sometimes several times during the same 1/2 hr show.

    I found out the problem!! I had to go to Philips support page and download the new software to a jump drive. It only took about 10 min for the whole process.


    Whatever brand tv you own, go to their support page and download the new software. It will solve the problem.

    I have the Settings screen on constantly, Exit doesn't work. 42" screen built January 2006 in Mexico. Prior to this, it randomly would go black screen too often during a program.

    when I turn the unit on I get a picture for about one second then the menu screen pops up. When I select any input, the menu screen pops up one second later and stays there. Before this happened, my screen would go black for several seconds to a minuite then pictue would come back in on it's own.

    Thanks for the help, but I've taken the batteries out of the remote and the menu will still come up. I think the problem is with the TV itself. The buttoms on the TV have never really been used, so I don't think dirt in those buttons isn't likely. So I think I will have to have someone come out and look at it.

It could be dirt/dust has accumulated behind the buttons causing a false contact so it looks like a ghost is operating your tv making things appear and disappear.If this isn not the problem then there is a faulty component on the board where the buttons are located. If you are able to do the cleaning of the buttons yourself use a cleaner that de-greases as wel and make sure everything is bone dry before re-assembly. If not find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

How do I bring the menu up on a zenith VCR combo without the remote


Without a remote control you can't. To select a suitable replacement remote control, you should be aware about the set up codes for your device brand. To know more about it, visit the sites linked here. http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Being there is no menu button at the front panel of your TV, without a remote control you can't select it's inputs. Universal remote controls are available by some online shopping centers too. Visit some of them.
Good luck

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.

Veon tv manual


The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :
