I have 20" flat screen Emerson TV. It is less than a year old but is has alot of static problems. During one of these episodes I checked it with my meter and watch the voltage jump from 119v. when everything was fine to 187v. when the static would occur. Is there a possible solution that I could fix myself or something I should look for as even though the parts are under warranty the labor is not and to take it to a repair facility would cost as much as the TV itself?

You should be okay just buying any generic universal remote. Any remote requires programming to work with a specific TV, but universal remotes are easily programmable. The instructions included with the universal remote will detail how you program that remote to work with your TV (usually along the lines of simply putting it in programming mode, and pressing the power button until it turns your TV off, and then locking it in)
Sounds like the issue is with the set top box of your cable or direct tv provider. Please swap that receiver for the equivalent or a more updated version.If the problem persists. Verify that all inputs on television is correct. It should match. Output of source( digital receiver,dvd player) to Input( television ). Make sure all is secure. Good luck
Mine is doing the same thing. I talked with a local repair guy over the phone and he says that (obviously) something is malfunctioning in the TV and a sensor shuts it off to minimize the damage to other components. This would be ok if the TV were 20 years old (they used to last that long); however, mine is only 1 1/2 years old and Emerson couldn't give a damn that the TV is a piece of ****. Silly Mimi
the Majority of problems on this and all other LCD TV's are capacitor problems the power pack needs smooth power to work correctly however the warranty should be valid and you need the proof that you bought it and you need to know who to contact about the 2 year warranty it may be Emerson you need to speak with not Walmart. I would contact them next(Emerson), or whom ever the third party repair service is that will cover the Warranty. hope this helps
i had the same problem with a 32 inch and i kept "clicking" the channel changer on the remote to force the tv to go to another channel (that had previously been selected during the initial auto scan) --- still trying to figure out why the tv locks onto the scanning for channel
