My Samsung wall mounted TV was disconnected for a few days

My Samsung wall mounted TV was disconnected for a few days when my office was being repainted. Ever since I have reconnected the TV I have begun receiving a 5-panelled interruption on the TV screen to whatever show I am watching. The 1sr panel says Series 8 at the top with the following info below: ultra slim ultra filterbright plus internet@@TV. A 2nd panel says Eco friendly 41%, and then there are 3 additional panels with various TV information about its capabilities. The panels come on about once every 3 minutes and disappear by themselves after a minute or so. As you can imagine this interruption interferes with my viewing. Can you help?JA: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?Customer: my TV is about 5 years old and, yes, it has been unplugged a few days while my office was being painted. The TV is plugged into my Directv cable box, which in turn is plugged into the wall outlet.JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: the TV menu works. we have 6 tvs in the house and this is the only one that has this problem. I was wondering whether these 5 panels of information are emitted from the TV? Could there be a control button or series of buttons on the Samsun remote apparatus itself which could turn off these annoying series of on-screen interruptions?JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: this has been an issue ever since the office wall where the tv is mounted was painted... about 1 month ago. Before I had to disconnect the Directv cable box from the wall...(the TV is plugged into the cable box), I had no problems.JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: No, but as we are speaking I am certain the 5 panels will appear and i can provide additional information about what is written on the 5 panels. Thanks.

I am looking for an alternative to satellite TV. However, I

I am looking for an alternative to satellite TV. However, I currently have 5 receivers in HD and about the only thing I can find to cut back is the sports package and "extra" that will only save about $50.00 a month.. Is internet TV a suitable alternative? About all I watch are movies, sports and news. I do have the ability to get to Netflicks and Amazon Video though my Blu-Ray Players.

I have a Samsung Series 6 650 TV.

Any thoughts.JA: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?Customer: It is 6 years old. I've unplugged it for 5 minutes and also removed and later installed the wifi antenna that goes with the tv. But, I haven't left the tv off for a few hours.JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: Yes, I am able to bring up the menu.JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: A few days ago, we tried to access Netflix. The TV would not connect to the internet via the wireless. Called the cable company.

Check the TV or connected device's network settings." I've checked the wifi settings and re-entered the code to no avail." Also, the Youtube app dissappeared from the Samsung app menu. Pandora is still there but I can't access it either.JA: Anything else you want the tv expert to know before I connect you?Customer: No
