    I have already cleaned the front panel. I was informed to replace the switches from the front panel to cure this problem.



    Where can I order a front panel replacement???

  • marsg Sep 24, 2008

    Thank you for your input. I bought new switches and I will change out these switches on the front panel first, but this weekend I will do this duty.

    I went and found a store that sold PCB components and replaced all the switches on the front panel board. All switches were replaced and now the TV works as good as new now ($5.00 investment). Thanks!!!!!

Television model tp2784c101 what is the remote control menu/set up to keep channel so it doesn't automatically switch to different channel after 30 seconds; or how can I set it up to turn onto AV1 an


If the TV do not respond to remote control; to change channels, there are many possibilities. Check the infrared emission of the remote control first. Check it with fresh batteries. If the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty, this kind of fault can happen. In other words, your TV need a through check up, which a normal user can't do with ease. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service centre. Electro help

Bought it used without a manual. when turned on the channel is set to a channel that we dont receive. cant figure out how to set a new start channel.


You can access the on-screen menu by pressing the Vol+ and Vol- buttons together on the front of the TV . Alternatively use a remote and press Menu to access the menu (not all low end remotes will match the feature) An exact replacement remote is available here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12878563535890&smodel=MS3252S&brand_pn=MAGNAVOX_MS3252S . Then use the channel up and down buttons on the TV to select menu items. If using the remote use the play, fast forward, fast rewind back and pause to go through the menus. Press Menu to go back one level in the menus.

Once you have the menu up, go to the bottom of the list to Install. Select Tuner Mode (the options are Antenna, Cable and Auto) and make sure that is set correctly. Next select Auto Program to look for all available channels or Edit Channels to change the channels you will see when you change the channel with the Channel up and down buttons.

Please note that the TV only has an NTSC (analog) tuner and must be used with a set-top box to see any channels other than the remaining low power stations that have not switched to digital.

Once you have a new channel list, the TV will remember the last state it was in. (Please note that the A/V inputs are reached by pressing Channel up or down past the tuner channels.

I hope this helps.

Getting a specific channel on the TV without using a remote


Usually if you go into the setup menu, there is an option to allow you to either "scan" for a channel, or "input" a channel. In this case, select "input" and see if the TV will allow you to press the up and down channel buttons and go to a specific channel. If so, when you get to channel 4, press the "add this channel" option (or whatever the menu option says) and you should then be able to go to channel 4 using the buttons on the front without skipping over it.

How do i switch from tv to vidio without a remote


If your video is connected via scart socket you shouldnt need to switch..it should happen automatically when a DVD or video is played or loaded.Otherwise you need to go into the TV menu using the tv buttons and switch it to AV there. Some TVs go to AV when you press the channel buttons down below channel 0.

How do I tune TV channels on my Sharp CX48G4 TV without a remote control? There is no tuning / settings panel on the TV itself which is very strange.


press the preset button on the front panel once then (TV should be on) the on the screen there should be words the likes of (Auto VHF 1 60.00mhz) now the Auto stands for auto tuning VHF stands for its frequency where its going to search the 1 stands for the channel where its going to start with 60.00mghz stands for the lowest signal to which its going to start now that you have understood all that just press the volume up button then it will automaticly locate all your working channels leave till it stops for when does it will start from channel 1 to which I believe that you be able to see the channel working so press the up button on the channel button to check the rest of your channels hope this will solve your problem!

Switching singnal


If you are using an antenna or regular cable without a cable box, put the tv on an analog channel. Go into the menu. Select the middle icon at the top of the screen. Go down to the TV/CABLE line. Select either TV (for antenna) or CABLE (for regular cable) on the right. Go down to AUTO CH MEMORY and press the volume+ (right arrow) button. Wait for the channel search screen to clear. Check all of your channels using the channel up button until you come back to the channel you started on.

SPECIFIC FIX FOR GE 32GT660


I have the same problem, except that it would turn on by itself and then start changing channels. I had a can of compressed air and sprayed the button areas to see if there were sticking. It worked for a coupe of days, then started happening again. So I searched the web and found a response to a question someone else posted and the ensuing reply "most likely you have one of 2 things going on one is the foam between the buttons and the switches or you may have a switch getting leaky and would need replaced" Looks like I may have to taking the cover off and find some type of electronic cleaner, or replace the buttons. I find it odd that I got hits for the same issue with the same model. hhhhmmmmm?
