Volume Controls Are Frozen

The volume control stays at the bottom of the screen and is frozen at 100 and I cannot switch to different sources. I also cannot get to Menu for the settings. I can only turn the unit on and off.

Re: Volume Controls Are Frozen

Try unplugging it from the wall for about 2 minutes and then trying again. This will force a system reset as it sounds like it locked up.

TV audio output vastly different for satellite feed versus DVD feed. Why?

It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.

TV volume increases by itself and doesn't decrease or respond to the remote control

Volume stays at 100 i try to turn it down and goes back up

Does this TV have a touch-pad on the TV for the channel/volume/on-off control of the TV? If it does, I would suspect that this board has a problem that is keeping the volume+ function stuck on.

How do I adjust volume when tv is frozen?

Unplug the television. Check to see if the plugs are polarized (one bigger than the other). Sounds like if the plug was plugged in the wrong way could cause what we call a hot chassis. The tv is not properly grounded, it appears to be a grounding issue.

Samsung le40r74bd problem

I just had this problem with my 3 year old 32" Samsung LCD. The volume would go up and down by itself, normally just constantly going up even when it reached 100%.

I thought it might have something to do with the volume buttons on the TV itself so seeing as it was out of warranty anyway I decided to unplug it and open it up.

I gave it a good clean and I disconnected the cable for the panel of buttons on the LCD itself (volume, menu, channel etc) seeing as I never use them anyway. I then put everything else back together and tested.

It seems to be working fine now. Previously (for the past 3 hours) ever time I turned it on the volume level would come on instantly and stay on until I turned the TV off. So I’m quietly confident the problem has been fixed. But I must admit it’s only been 10 minutes, so who knows, it might come back.

Screen is frozen on with no picture and no sound. Does not respond to either remote control or manual controls. The tv did work and then after a few minutes went frozen.

You need to move further south if it is frozen. It's cold up north :-)

If you've pulled the power from this tv (power cycled it) and it still has this problem ... frozen with no picture and no sound. How a screen can be frozen with no picture, I'm not sure. But it sounds like you are going to be on your way to the repair shop. Or to buy a new tv.

If I couldn't see and couldn't hear, how would I know you were even here?

The fault may be on the control board. Sometimes the button switches can be stuck, or there may be something causing some conduction on the control circuit board. It is also possible to have a component failure that is causing a continuous command to keep the volume to the high position.

Something that causes failures of controls in TV sets is when people clean the screen, they spray liquid cleaner on the screen. Some of it drips down in to the controls and on to the circuit board. This will usually cause damage, and thus the set will require shop service.
