THERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT CAN CAUSE THIS SYMPTOM. FIRST THING IS TO CHECK THE SD CARD SLOT AND MAKE SURE THERE ARE NOT OBJECTS SHOVED IN IT. SECOND IS TO UNPLUG THE SET LEAVE IT OFF FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEN PLUG IT BACK IN. IF IT IS STILL DOING IT MAKE SURE THE BUTTONS ON THE FRONT ARE NOT PUSHED OR JAMMED.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
