-What did you try to install?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Under the Settings Menu there is the option to re-install with the idea it might wipe out the fault.

I believe you need to download software and try to install that. I have been unable to get a link to download it. I would say you should try to call Bush at this point and see if they can send it to you or point to where we can download it. 90% of the time when this happens, a software install will fix the problem.

If the software does not fix it then first, you could have a failure in the power supply, we have seen some capacitors fail in your model and cause funky problems like this. If this is the case you could be looking at somewhere around $175-$200 to fix the set.

Next could be the main board, this would not be good news because you could be looking at $300-$400 for the repair (I know this is up there in the price range and most likely getting over the cost of a new set)

Any of these could cause your problem, but it will require troubleshooting to determine the exact cause of your problem. If you have experience, and test equipment and would like to attempt some troubleshooting I will be happy to assist you, however if you do not have equipment or experience then you would need a repairman at this time to get an exact diagnosis. I am sorry that I don't have a quick fix or easy answer for you on this one, it is definitely an internal failure.

If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for info, but I am going to need to take the TV to a repairer.

Sorry for the bad news, the software will probably fix your issue here though.
