Toshiba LCD TV 37AV502U wont change channels buttons on side unresponsive


Hi Michael,
The buttons themselves might be defective but it is very unlikely that all of them would become defective at the same time.
I would suggest to open the TV and check for any loose connections between the main board and the buttons board assembly.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Crashed syma s33 had to replace both rotor shafts and tail motor now it will only scoot along thee floor?


I think that once you change a main part then the way these birds are made you have to change the board, battery gutt it out.

please go to the manufactures website and ask for a service manual and follow the guide to help you but I would stay away from the electrical circuits if you are not familiar with the ins and outs of theses electrical circuits as the AC mains circuits are lethal to the everyday person without electrical knowledge eric

47LG50 channels change themselves


Do a reset to this TV, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

Changing channels


A common issue with this model is the control key board (the key input board that has the buttons on the cabinet of the TV).

This board can cause a lot of issue ,from changing channels by itself,to intermittent shut off, also sources cannot be switched or they switch by themselves.

The less common issues would be the remote eye or the main board.

If you give the full model number and the product code from your TV, I can give you the part numbers.

None of the buttons on teh buttons on the television or the remote will work. I cannot change inputs, volume, channel or control the dvd player.


Unfortunately, both the local controls and the remote are controlling an integrated circuit on the main board that does the actual work. I think you can expect to have the main board replaced or exchanged and this won't be cheap if available at all. I think this company is related to the infamous 'Ilo' that was once sold by Mall-wart. They were bankrupt but the leftovers may still be available.
