Re: home theater

The front pannel,on and off channels and vol. switches are going bad,if you dont use the front pannel, unplug the set and remove the back cover,just below the top screws you can look under and see the top of the picture tubes,in front of the middle tube is a little board about two inches wide and four inches long,unplug the right plug it has one black and five or so white wires,this is the top cable,then just use your remote.

My rca home theater premiere 60" rear -projecton tv changes its channels without me doing anything

Ive seen that over the years . on the front of the set there are the push button switches . one of them have failed on the board . the tact switches can be replaced . if you can solder and have the skill and ability . or the other option is since most people live by the remote and do not get up to turn there set on or change channels . if you were to take the back off of the set you would look at the top center of the light box . there you will see a board with some cables running to it and since we don't have a model number from you i can not tell you exactly which cable it is but it will run to the push button board just unplug that there and you can use the remote and you should return to a normal operation .

My Hitachi 57F59 was scrolling thru the channels without anyone touching the remote - I unplugged it for two days and now it keeps flashing the

Keyboard issues and answers:A problem that is more common than most people think is an issue with buttons on thecontrol keyboards of modern TV sets.
Recently for whatever reason I have seen more questions about this so I have composed this answer and solution for these kinds of problems.
It can be any button on the set-channel up/down or volume up down-you name it.
The symptoms are the same: channel will scan up or down andwill not stop-remote control has no effect on this---It can be channel, volume,or even input or menu if the set has those up front or on the side of the set.
All these push controls have something in common-beneatheach is a tiny momentary push switch-when pushed with the plastic button itperforms a specific task (vol up or down etc.)

What happens is the afflicted switch beneath the plasticbutton is bad-when released it is supposed to stop its function but does not.
Keyboard or button controlled features have PRIORITYover the remote control, hence the remote will not stop this fromhappening.

Both the remote and thekeyboard go to the microprocessor in the set but keyboard is first in line.
How to resolve this issue?
Someone needs to get at the tiny pc board with the buttonsand locate the one associated with the issue (ie sound or channel etc) andunsolder that switch from the board-usually just two pins (may be more formounting only purposes) and then see if set does not have the issue with switchout of the circuit.
For the TECH minded with the board out test here theswitches with a ohm meter set to high resistance-any reading with button notpressed means a bad switch-seen ones that read 5,000 plus ohms-it may benecessary to unsolder more than one switch to locate the offender here but an open reading with switch not pressed is therule.
I have taken the time to compose this answer as some do notunderstand what is happening in these types of situations---No magic wand orsmoke and mirrors here-have to disable the offending switch to know.
The beauty (in my view) of this kind of problem is if found, you really do not have to replace anypart-just operate the set with the remote with one button that no longerfunctions on the set itself-who could ask for more?

P52937sg will not stay on one channel

It is a older RCA---confirm model number and year set made if possible---also some of these had a simple problem where channel number would change but channel would not---let me know if here is your problem--if it is this the set has the Guide Plus Logo on the front of the cabinet.

Gemstar perjection screen theater tv after about 10 or 20 min the menu screen pops up and then randomly selecting options repeatedly non stop, how to fix and around how much will it cost?

If the menu pops up at random it likely is the menu button on the set being bad--not the plastic button but the switch under it.

You in USA---? I know two people in St. Louis named Nikki and nick.

what kind of set and what model number?

When i turn the tv on ( 55 inch ge) it flips through the channels and won't stop.

Either it is scanning channels and will not stop or what?

Does set have the Guide Plus logo on the front?

A model number would be most helpful, it is on back of set.

RCA Home Theater Premiere 36" TV comes on automatically

Only two possible reasons I can think of for this--

ONE: you have looked in the customer menu and there is no item listed as Timer?


LET me know if it has the guide plus feature and I can tell you how to end the problem--most of these the set will come on at the same odd time and usually with volume up high.

Using RCA P61939 without Guide Plus

Guide plus still works even if you don't have the wand hooked up. In the setup section of the guide plus there are several questions that must be answered properly or it won't function as you would like. It maybe labeled as options as well. Thanks

Input problem

your tv is set to "Home Theater mode" . Use "menu" key on your remote, go to "advanced feature", then go to "use home theater" then hit "cancel" to return to standard mode. If this does not work try unplugging the tv for 4 hours to return to factory default settings
