Question about RCA F31672ET TV

1 Answer

Volume goes up on its own and stays up.

I can turn the volume down but it goes right back up to full volulme on its own. No buttons seem to be stuck. I thought maybe the remote was stuck. So I took the batteries out but it still does it. I push the volume down button, but as soon as I release it, the volume goes back up to full volume on its own. Some times the volume wont go down when I push on the down button.

Re: Volume goes up on its own and stays up.

Aren you sure that the volume up button is not stuck in . It should feel just like the rest of them A little click? It could still be shorted,or the capacitor across the switch could be defective. If all this seems good then the eeprom, or the microprocessor,or the line or trace going to the volum button could be shorted. This is not a repair you should attempt unless your a tech. Now the button thong can be looked at after the set is unpluged and the back is off, gently slide out the chassis toward the rear of the set just a little and slide it back to see if the button is released. if that dosent help then you will need to take the set to The repair center. Good Luck

The volume stays on high. I can lower it but, after I release the button the volume goes back to high.

I have the same problem with KV-20-FV-300. My remote stopped working and when I adjusted the volume manually, it goes to high and when it adjust it back down, it goes high again. I'm able to get the sound to stabilize by getting the volume to where I want it, and then pushing the up and down volume buttons at the same time. I'm still searching for a permanant solution though.

When i turn the tv. on, the volume line appears all the way to zero. if i turn the volume up, it goes up but when i release the up button the volume goes down all by itself.

It sounds like one of the volume down buttons is stuck in the activate position. The same as if you were holding the down volume button continuously. It could be either the volume down button on the TV or the remote. I would try remove the batteries of the remote then adjust the volume by the TV buttons.

If the volume doesn't go back down then the remote is the problem. In order to fix the remote you may need to take it apart. This is normally easy to do just locate any screws that may be holding the remote together. If you don't see any screws then you will need to pry the two sections apart. Separate the circuit board and rubber buttons and clean them both with some rubbing alcohol and reassemble it. If it still has the volume issue you may need to replace it.

If the problem persists with the remote deactivated then it's the volume button located on the TV. That is a little more difficult. You can try wiggling the button or some canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to blow it clean. However it may need to be disassembled to gain access to the switches for proper cleaning.
Hope this helps.

Volume decreasing to zero by itself

Have you looked to see if the Button on the tv itself is stuck in. Press it and you might be able to feel for it sticking. If this is the case you may want to try a baby wipe or something similar to try and sort this out. (dont use a sopping wet cloth)

hope you get this sorted.

My volume button goes all the way up to the max and stays there and sometimes my mute won't work how do i fix the problem

It looks as if your volume up button is stuck, either on the TVs manual buttons or the volume up button from the remote. To check if it's the remote, put the remote away from the TV, either in a drawer or take the batteries out. If the same check the Volume up button on the TV, it may be pressed down & stuck in this position. If this is ok most likely the volume button will be at fault & need replaced.

Sound goes down

The down button on your remote might be stuck down. Try taking the remote out of the room or cover it up with something. Then turn the sound up at the set and see if it stays up. If this doesn't work, the down button on the front of the set may be stuck or have leakage in the button. This would require taking the set to a service shop. Another possibility would be a loose ground on the CRT dag which can cause this. this also would be something a service shop would need to take care of, as you could get a shock if you attempt this repair yourself.

"snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work

good day
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.
