I have a 40 inch RCA LCD that I got from Wal Mart and as soon as you plug it in, it flips through all of the inputs, and you can't control anything. none of the buttons on the remote works and none of the buttons on the TV works. I've searched and searched, but couldn't find any info about this problem, so I guess it's pretty uncommon. The TV is rendered nearly useless as a result. HELP? Please??

Take it back and avoid anything RCA, Philips, Sceptre, Viore, Proscan, Magnavox, (insert no name brand here), etc.

Dang, that just leaves LG, Samsung, and Sony and those are mucho 'spencive. I thought I was getting a pretty good deal $400 for a 40 inch 1080p. It was a display unit (which I now realize was a BAD idea...Wal Mart stays open 24 hours, and the tvs stay on 24 hours) I'm thinking about trying to get RCA to warranty me a new one. If not, then no doubt it's going back to Wally's World.

What do you guys think of Toshiba? Vizio?

Forget LG, as well. Toshiba and Vizio are both decent. Much better than the other brands mentioned, (except Samsung & Sony), and offer a good bang for the buck. I have had a Vizio 42" LCD for over a year with no problems.

Don't know if RCA will warranty a floor model. If I were you, I'd take it back to Wally World, get a refund, and use the money toward a Vizio, but not a floor model.
