Problem with channel skipping has rectified itself. I simply unplugged the set and and started over with remote intructions on signal and channel setting. The tv was also turning itself off and on, this also has ceased. Thanks, hope I don't need you later.

I lost the remote to my Toshiba cz27t31. I bought an RCA universal remote. The RCA manual says the tv should be set to channel 1. But I can't change the channel without the remote. So I am SOL! How...


  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

I accidentally hit the menu button on my tv and seem to have reset something. It goes from Channel 126 directly to Channel 24 and will not set to channel 3, which is the only one that works with my cable


Hello
You have hit the channel skip function to on. Go to menu and come towards functions where you can see channel skip. Keep it to "off" position. Now it is in "on" position.

My tv keeps changing channels and adjusting the volume whats going on


Remove the back and find the two conductor wire from the front panel to the main board. (the set of buttons with input, menu, ch, and vol) Unplug the connector at the mainboard and see if it cures the problem. I did this on a 20F521TD and just left the wire unplugged. Works fine from remote.

I had the same problem and eventually found the solution. the tact switches behind the front panel buttons will leak when they get old causing them to activate on their own. your channel up or down button is stuck on. take off the back cover and you will see a small clip in circuit board behind the front panel. take out the board and remove the channel up or down switch and your set should work fine again. the remote will still work fine for changing the channels.

RCA 36 inch ---channels keep changing


Mine did this and I took the back off of it to remove the button panel on top of the tv. It un- snaps from the inside and pulls straight out. My channel down button was messed up but it lookd fine. It has three prongs on one side of it and two on the other. I clipped the two prong side of the switch and put it back together. Works fine now with remote. Be careful as the set picture tube holds high voltage for a long time when unpluged. Unplug overnight and then work on it.

This is a problem common with some RCA/GE TV's. The fix in the past was to install a capacitor between ground and pin 15 of the microprocessor which keeps a data signal riding on the video stream from muting the sound on most stations. By installing this capacitor, you would be disabling the closed caption feature so that feature would no longer work. An authorized RCA TV repair shop may be able to give you more information.

Channels keep changing


ok, let's try the simplest things first.... unplug the tv from the wall, and remove the batteries from the remote. wait about 5 or 10 minutes. reinstall the batteries and plug the tv back in. try it again. actually since you said you tried another remote, you can skip removing the batteries from the remote. if it still does it, try unplugging the tv overnight. if it still doesn't work right then, you have a processor problem, and need to have it looked at by a service tech.
