Apex 32" TV - Blue Screen & Channels keeping running/changing
Started up the TV, got a Blue Screen, and channel selectors in the upper left appeared and kept constantly changing, 2, 3, 4, dvd, etc.etc.,etc.
Could not get a picture/reception from Direct TV.
The On/Off button would not turn the TV on, only the Remote can turn it On and Off.
Any ideas on what could be the problem, or should I just get rid of this boat anchor?
Would appreciate some advice.

Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button. Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688." Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels
'I to am getting only wavy blue lines, no sound, doesn't even show channel indicators. TV was off for 4 days, came home turned it on and ten minutes later this screen appeared, it wont even show the menu screen, different channels or video inputs no sound either.
take that tv to a tech you bought that set deffected .or take it back to where you buy it from.but my advice is that you take it back to where you buy it from.as you will pay double.repairs and what you have already paid for the set.good luck
