I have a 42 inch Digistar plasma tv.The source menu keeps coming on and the blue source menu screen covers a part of the picture. I hit a button on the remote and it goes off but nit keeps coming back on. How can I get this screen box to stay off the picture?

It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

    This is a long shot, but give this a try. Try doing a channel set up. Go through menu, and then look for something like SET UP,

    CHANNEL set up, and AUTO / Manual.

    Select AUTO, and let it scroll through all the numbers until it stops. This will lock in all of the channels that have a strong signal. Then get out of Set up and see if that does anything.

    If you have already preformed your set up before, please let me know and we can go a different route to see if I can help solve your problem with the TV.

    Ok, now we are getting somewhere. By telling me that the tv turns on, and off by itself when you hit the power button on the tv, lets me know that there is a good chance that the power switch or channel switch on the TV itself is either worn or the board that the switches are mounted on is either cracked or has a bad solder point.

    At this point the only thing you can do is Hit all of the buttons one at a time, and listen for the CLICKING Noise. You should hear a click when you push the button and usually a slight click when you release it. Hit all of the buttons, power, channel up/down/ volume up/down etc and listen for the clicks. (Focus on the Channel UP and the Power Button more.)

    What you are trying to do, is to get the switches to the home position (Out position)

    If you are successful, then I would ONLY Use the remote control to do anything with the TV and put a piece of paper over the switches on the TV so that nobody else touches them.)

    The only other solution would be to get the TV repaired.

    Sorry, I couldnt be of any more help.

    IM hoping that you can get the TV working with just the Remote control.

    Best Wishes,

    Good luck.

There is no way to accsess the tv video without the remote i have a G E universal remote and need the correct code for this model

most universal remotes let you search through the code base by simply following the steps to enter a code then just keep pressing the channel up button instead of entering the code, just keep hitting the channel up button until it changes the channel on the tv. 9 out of 10 times this will work! GOOD LUCK!!

Need help to program my new T.V. to my remote

hold down code until it stays lit, then press tv then keep hitting channel up or channel down (either one can be used, keep pressing channel button til tv changes channels when it does press enter, or ok if enter is not there, it may take awhile maybe a few channel pushes up to 200 and up times, you use this method when you don't know the code for your tv. Hope this helps.

Channel keeps changing

If you are using the remote to change channels it sounds like either the front of the remote and/or the receiving “eye” on the TV need to be cleaned, OR (more likely) the button on the remote is sticking. It is actually a button that pushes on a membrane under the entire remote panel. This is generally caused by some sticky liquid (like Coke) getting spilled on it. If you are brave enough, you can take the remote apart and clean it with denatured alcohol. Otherwise you need to replace your remote. If possible borrow a universal remote and see if it still happens. If that doesn’t fix it you have a bad IR receiver and/or a serious internal problem.

After programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!

you need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.
