Problem: The evening prior, the television's response to the remote would be to pop up the channel menu and quickly disappear. Even occurred several time. The following morning the television has stopped responding to the remote. Batteries on the remote control were changed to a fresh set. Attempts were made to reset the remote by using the back + menu and the back + up methods which resulted no favorable outcomes. The IR indicator continues to flash in sets of two fast flashes for about 30 seconds.
The television has been unplugged of all devices and plugged back in to its bare power. No interference between the remote and television exists. The IR on both the television and remote control are responsive to the other.
