An update on my WD Mit. I just sold it. I had unplugged the unit from the wall by accident so when the guy came to see it it didn't just automatically come on with the AV 1 input from the cable box. It was a black screen with the sound of static. The TV went to the coax input so I had to pull up the device menu and reselect the AV1 input to get the picture. ***I believe this happens because the tv has a setting "preference" in the programmenu to shut off the other unused inputs. I had not disabled the coax input so the tv went to default when it cam back on.***
My Samsung 46" does it to. I notice there are more programming features on this brand so this is my suspicion why I think your issue is with the remote.
I offered to walk him thru it again if he got stuck. He called and I just couldn't get him to hit the right steps so. He also had another similiar unit his girlfriend had but with a damaged lamp. So I offered to come over and see what he was doing wrong.
Come to find out his 3 Directv universal remotes, with differing model numbers, did not get the TV's menu up like mine. Problem 1.
Problem 2, after many code programming attempts I learned his batteries were weak and the remote was not accepting the programming correctly.
Problem 3 He did not know to check the input setting to select AV1 where he had his cable box connect. So there was nothing wrong with the tv just user errors.
So finally I plugged the power cord into the wall the green timer light started rapid blinks. I waited for it to finish blinking. After it stopped I pressed the power button on the front. (Note if the front panel of buttons are in "lock" mode then nothing will work as in my case and I needed a "fully" functioning remote for anything to work and the DTV RC64 worked nicely.)
After hiting the power button I had to press the "device" button to change the input settings. And walla. ***I must add that since we had remote control issues and could not make selections the tv powered itself off after 30 seconds.***
From this experience I don't believe I really need the "factory reset" either I just needed to learn how the tv powered up and what buttons to push and when.
I know yours has got to be doing the same thing. Keep at it.
