Hello, Sorry you're having problems. Offhand the numbers and letters appearing on the screen are showing the software version of the set generated by the mainboard. This generally only occurs when the software is corrupt and the set requires this board be replaced.

However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.

The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 2 times, and please let me know what happens.

If you're still having the same issue beyond those steps then the set's Mainboard (at the link below for purchase) needs to be replaced. If you're looking to fix the TV yourself, the Mainboard is a "plug and play" component and all that's needed to replace it is a screwdriver: Alternatively, if this is not something you're comfortable with, then a shop will typically charge $150 parts and labor for this repair and one can be located using the following link: http:// Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news here and wish there were a quick fix. Let me know if you need more help. Also, could you please click a POSITIVE RATING (3-5 stars at the top of the page) and click SUBMIT so that I am credited for working with you today?
