Samsung DLP won't turn off

by Scallawa / August 26, 2012 12:13 PM PDT

The TV suddenly starting displaying the volume indicator on the left hand side of the screen. It does not respond to the remote but the indicator on the TV lights up when you push any button on the remote. It does not turn off and does not respond to any of the buttons on the side of the tv except for the channel up and down buttons. The volume down button on the tv changes the channel up. Does anyone know what the cause might be?
I watch tv through my computer so it was displaying a picture just fine until I hit the channel buttons. Now I can't get it to change source back to the PC, turn off or do anything for that matter since I don't watch tv through cable or over the air.
The indicator lights all look good.
Samsung DLP model no HL61A750A1F
model code HL61A750A1FXZA.

Remote and controls don't work
by Scallawa / August 26, 2012 3:40 PM PDT

I tried to use the wiselink to update the firmware and I couldn't since none of the controls work to be able to initiate the upgrade. The yes no dialog box that pops up when you put in a usb keeps flashing between yes and no like a button was stuck down.
