Question about RCA F36685 36" TV

Open Question

Our t.v.'s audio is not working.

Every time we turn the t.v. on the volume automatically goes down and we cant control the volume on the remote. So we have to turn on the warranty lock for there to be sound, which takes up half of the monitor. When i put the warranty lock on it shows the hours it expires. Can we program it on the remote?



Please reply, thank you so much!
Edwin

    have you tried disconnecting the button panel on the tv itself to see if the volume still goes down? Sounds like it could be a bad button.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: RCA 36 in. tv no volume

It is not a loose solder joint. It is not a faulty capacitor. Usually, a spray cleaner or some other fluid is sprayed or spilled onto the top or front of the TV and it seeps down inside and contaminates the little pushbuttons. If the volume down pushbutton is contaminated, the set will have the exact symptoms you are seeing.I have seen this many, many times, and once I saw a pushbutton contaminated with cigarette smoke. The pushbuttons should be checked and/or replaced by a qualified tech.

This is becoz your Internal Remote control response program chip needs to be replaced! You need it to get repaired at nearest service station. Or it may be due to Your keys pressed continously from remote control. Check both the causes! then decide. It will help you!

We are watching tv and the volume just turns itself all the way up. If we turn it down, it goes right back up. It stays like that for about 15 min at a time and then it will allow me to turn it down until...


check the remote control, take the batteries out and try to adjust the volume on the tv set itself.
If this resolves the problem the button on the remote may be sticking, either clear it or get a universal remote.

If you still have the problem without the remote then its time to take the tv to a repair shop or claim on a warranty.

Volume automatically goes to maximum on TCL TV


The volume (+) button on the TV is stuck or soiled if the volume automatically increases when the TV is turned on. To find out:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Press and hold the volume (-) button on the TV then turn it on.
  3. If the volume doesn't automatically increase, you have a stuck button.
  4. If it does increase, you have a faulty key control board.
  5. In either case, you have to replace the key control board.
To find it out further:
Warning: Beware of electric shock.Please do not proceed if you do not have the skill to do the following.
  1. Unplug the TV.
  2. Let it stand for 15 minutes to allow voltages to drain completely to avoid the risk of electric shock.
  3. Remove the screws securing the TV's back cover and pull it off.
  4. Disconnect the cable that runs from the main board to the control key board.
  5. Turn the TV on using the remote.
  6. In this manner you can use the remote control to run the TV while waiting for the control key replacement board.
To do a hard reset of the TV, unplug it and let it sit for 2 hours or long enough to completely drain the internal voltages.

Turns on automatically


use your camera on your phone and point the remote at the camera lense, you will probably find the remote is lit up and the remote is the problem, button on the remote is stuck and sending signal to the tv all the time until the batteries go flat. if its not that then the tv main av controller board has a fault. there area on the board for remote signal control.

Let's eliminate ghosts and goblins. I can't identify your unit. Give me a make and model number.

As a test, locate the remote control window on the front of the unit, if it has one. Set it up to watch or listen to something then cover the remote window on the unit with a small piecr of cardboard. If you can't locate its infrared receiver for the remote just cover the entire front of the unit with something sufficiently opaque to block your remote. Try to operate it with th remote to be sure the unit can't see it.

If the expected problem never comes back you have a stray signal from something else in the environment getting interpreted as a 'volume up' command. Then look around for other remotes being used, wireless devices, use your imagination. I used to have a remote-controlled space heater and my TV would sometimes shut off if I used the remote. Does the unit have line-of-sight to a nearby house? Maybe something next door (garage opener?) is interfering.

If it still happens and there are no other infra-red devices nearby you have a ghost.

Sony 36' TV Volume Goes up on own/Stuck on Video 2


There's a setting in the menu. I think it's called "smart audio". It's supposed to adjust the volume automatically for commercials. But I don't think it works that well. Give that a try.
