Question about Hitachi 51F710 Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Channel change intermittant from remote or control panel

Channel will not change from the up/down on remote or control panel, condition is intermittant, tried 3 remotes from Hitachi, Tech changed the IR Receiver pcb in set-no help. Up-graded to v0108 firmware. I am connected directly to the Cox Cable (no set top box). All other function buttons on the remote work every time. When the channel will not change the channel number does not appear on the screen and sometimes requires 2-4 deppressions of the channel up/down to finally get to the channel indication on the screen, and does the same when using the up/down on the set control panel. (I understand the delay that is normal in the tuner change -after the channel indicator display appears- !) Hitachi has dragged their feet on additional tech visits or action for 5 months. I have visited show rooms with this TV and used my remotes, finding them to function without failure. Hitachi is sending me the latest F/W (V0110.) will see, the help desk could not tell me the fixes included. Anyone else seen/fixed this problem ??? Thanks Moonie

On my jvc tv model hd-61g787 I cannot program channels

you can program channel either in the remote control or in the tv button panel. press menu then go to manual fine tune so you can program the channel one by one. you can use the volume up/down button to tuned the desired channel. to select channel use the channel up/down button.

Model ws-55711, remote doesn't work but I don't believe it is the remote control, can only change station up or down manually, cannot adjust volume or others manually...

If you can change channels with remote then TV is OK because it has only one infra red receiver (remote receiver) to catch remote signals.
So TV remote seems bad as it works on channel buttons only.
Here is an easy test for remote, watch remote front through any digital camera or even cellular phone camera will work and press channel button on remote, you will see blinking LED at front of remote while watching it through camera. Now press other buttons of remote and I'm sure that LED wont blink.

Mitsubishi WS-65611 tv channels cannot stop scrolling

Check to make sure the channel down button is not stuck. If it is not the button is probably defective. Mits has had a lot of problems with the buttons.

I have a old rca tv. today when I turned the tv on the stations just keep changing and its a static. What could make that happen?

there are a few possibilities. Only two of which you can correct.

First, blow some pressurized air into the remote control, especially around the channel up and down buttons.

Second, see if the channel changing stops when you remove the remote battery.

third, blow compressed air into the channel up and down buttons on the tv.

If you are still have the problem then you have an internal part to replace and we recommend you use our premium service for that.

Good luck.

Tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels and you can't use remote

Found this in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."
