Greyed out HDMI also? if so I would get a new set unless a setting was off ofc. *normally everything*should be avail there.on HDMI Do you have energy saver/eco settings enabled /(that is usual default setting) is set still in store mode , try a factory reset maybe and start over? , sounds like might be haywire though ?.
If I had 2 faulty ones in a row I would be hard pressed to get another one of the same brand just saying unless it's just an adjustment even that should not be needed on HDMI source
Years ago I bought an RCA looked real good in the store the one I got was pushing green no matter what flesh tones were slightly off took it back paid more for a Sony
A few years later I got another bigger Sony and put that one in another room I had that set for 14yrs no probs the other one for 10 yrs .. Now I have a Toshiba and a Sammy Plasma If Toshiba had Plasma would have bought it.Toshiba has great picture . I've had Toshiba before also good stuff.IMO. Toshiba or Sony are usually my (other than plasma) preferred brands
The Soviet people feared the KGB was watching them through their TV's ........or listening to them through their radios, so they kept them turned off often when they wanted privacy .
Now the NSA/ DHS are in fact watching us with our computers cell phones surveillance cameras drones,satellites etc !
