Offhand, all of these symptoms would point to a fault in the set's Mainboard occurring, and in many cases requires replacement of this board to fix the issue.

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 and operates normally. Try this procedure up to 2 times, and please let me know what happens.

Were you able to try those steps? Are you still having the same problem?

Turned on, able to change input, and so far no menu popping up or blue screen. Have another of these exact same tvs working for over 5 years with no problem.

Thank you for the reply. Yes the other TV isn't to this one. You could have ten of them working fine and only have an issue with one. This is a "glitch"- not something within normal operation of the set. It appears the hard reboot fixed the issue by rebooting the processor, which is good news!

It sometimes seems the longer it's on the worse it gets, we'll see, thank you

Okay and I can understand that. It would appear to be a heat-related issue with the set's processor causing this, and if it continues- would require replacement of the set's Mainboard (which is on average a $250 repair unfortunately).
