Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV
We had a repair man through a major electronics store come to fix our TV because the TV would suddenly change channels, change the volume, or go into the set up screen by itself. We were told that the cable box through our cable company could be sending signals to the "motherboard" of the TV and cause it to do this, and we need to unplug the TV for atleast 2 hours to let it reset itself. Well, it is happening about once a month now, and its getting annoying! Is this possible, or is there something REALLY wrong with the TV?
Yes and this is a common problem! First lets check out the obvious/ when theis fault starts to happen take out the batteries out of the remote control. If the problem stops then you need a new remote. If the proplem persist the remote sensor assy is bad in the tv set. Ive never heard a cable box causeing a motherboard to act up?? Wait arent mother boards in computers?? lol. believe me you need to tell the tv msn to replace the rmote sensor. Now in an extremly rare cases the microprocessor was causing the problem BUT highly unlikly. Good Luck

One or more of the front switches are likely leaky. They are less than $3 apiece and I just change them all to save future problems. You might be able to push all of the buttons on the front of the set a few times such as volume up and down and channel up and down and temporarly cure the problem but the switches will likely need to be changed.
