Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

A TV does not to be dropped to get errors. The screen is build up with a a few million pixels. they are switched on and of in lines and rows.
Bundles of rows and bundles of lines have a combined "switcher" If one bundle gets a poor supply (bad contact or defective electronics) a band of pixels will act different or not at all.
I'm afraid it is a normal defect and you need a tech to solve the problem.
Before you order someone to repair, ask what it will cost, because in 3 years TV sets became much cheaper. Perhaps a new one is cheaper than a repair.

If you have cycled through all the inputs without success then either the TV is bad or the input device is causing an issue. Oftentimes programming is delivered via a subscriber device, dvd player, or other independent player/source. If you have a service like Comcast then they typically will help with troubleshooting. It may sound silly, but be sure to check things are plugged in and turned on. Also, if you are using a strip cord to plug things into make sure the reset switch isn't tripped.

Go to the audio setup screen and make sure the audio is being sent to the internal speakers. If that's correct then look at replacing the main board on the TV

Have you tried pressing on the format button? On most cases this is caused because of the format the channel is transmiting, when you turn off and on again the TV auto-formats. But you can solve this by pressing the format button on your remote. Let me knows if it helps.

It is going to have to go to a service center for repair or replacement of a board or boards---if the reset did not fix it then it has a fault.

Hi, unfortunately the only way to use your particular brands remote with your cable companies remote is if the cable remote has what's called a "LEARN " key. This is used for cloning another remotes codes to the cable's remote. Unfortunately most tv suppliers don't provide their codes for universal remote use. The first thing i would do is contact your cable providers customer assistance to see if they have setup codes for your brand. then if that doesn't work then you can always buy a universal remote with a " LEARN " function, enabling use with hanspree tv as well as current cable box. I hope this was helpful and thanks, let us know how we did, Good luck ,Prodzilla
