Kenmore Microwave weird behavior

The display panel of our 10-yr-old Kenmore microwave (made by LG, perhaps) was reading backwards this morning -- in English, but from right to left. Unplugging it and plugging it in again solved the problem, and all that was necessary then was to reset the time and date.

Wow! I can see how to design a piece of software with that capability! But, can't see anyone wanting to design a piece of software that could fail in that way! E.g., "cocktail" video games need to be able to paint the display "upside down" for "the other player" (seated opposite you).
Normally, the "order" of display digits is hard-coded into the way an algorithm operates: THIS value gets painted into THAT character/digit position, then, advance to the NEXT. There's (typically) nothing that lets you redefine "NEXT"!

That's really bizarre......
A local bar has four flat screen HDTV sets. Three work fine, but one of them has an odd problem. When they first turn it on, the picture is upside down. After a few minutes the picture is right side up, but the left half of the screen flashes and distorts, while the right side is perfectly normal. The owner normally dont even turn that set on anymore, and plans to replace it when he can find a bargain, but during football games they still turn that goofy set on. It gets very annoying after awhile.
Electronics can do some very bizarre things at times.....
