It seems that the touch screen of your camera has damaged. Once replaced the camera will start working fine.

Can't change the menu from the clock set up to other functions such as channel scanning.

Are all of the sub-menus besides the clock unavailable or just the ones related to OTA (RF) signals? If it's just the OTA menus that are missing, change the source/input to TV. On all of my TVs, the channel scan option and related functions are blocked if the current input is not TV.

Changing the input/source depends on the TV. First make sure that an antenna or cable source on an RF (RG-59/RG-60 cable) is connected to the set. Next look for a Source or Input button on the original remote. Press this button. On some models, you navigate through the menu by pressing the Input/Source button repeatedly and then press OK to change the input. On other sets, you navigate with the arrow keys and then press OK. Some TVs may switch to the new source after a few seconds without any button presses; they don't need the OK button to be pressed. On a universal remote, you may find an Input/Source button but the button may not work with some codes for the manufacturer. (This can be frustrating since the basic functions (power, channel up/down, volume up/down) work; try a different code.)

Some TVs will also have an Input/Source button on the TV. This will work like the button on the remote. Use the Select button for the OK button. A few TVs have the option inside the on-screen menu. Press Menu and then look for a source option in a Tools or Setup menu.

I hope this helps. I have never had a TV where only the Clock menu is available. If that is the case with your TV, I don't know of a solution.

How do you set the minutes on the clock?

There are two ways to set the clock on your coffee maker. 1- When you initially plug in the coffee maker, the unit will beep and "12:00" will flash on the LCD display for a few seconds. Press immediately the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. If "12:00" starts to flash, press the PROG button (n) for a few seconds until the "12:00" flashes again. Then press the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. There are AM and PM indicators on the top right side of the LCD screen. To set the current minutes, press the PROG button (n) and then press the h/min button (o) until the correct minutes appear on the LCD display. After 5 seconds, the unit will beep and the time will stop flashing. 2- At any other time, you can set the clock or change the set time by pressing and holding the h/min button (o). The unit will beep and "12:00" will flash on the LCD display. Use the h/min button (o) to set the current hour. There are AM and PM indicators on the top right side of the LCD screen. To set the current minutes, press the PROG button (n) and then press the h/min button (o) until the correct minutes appear on the LCD display. After 5 seconds, the unit will beep and the time will stop flashing. Notes: Your clock has now been set and will continue to keep the correct time, even after the coffee maker has been shut off. Unplugging the coffee maker or a power failure will reset the clock to 12:00 AM. Repeat the instructions above to reset the clock

Press once the Input button. The menu appears. Press the Input button again and hold it. Now this is reduced to the problem of blocking the Input button (holding it with something). (Not very technical but then again neither is the restart when the computer blocks :D) Cheers
