Question about RCA F32632SB 32" TV

1 Answer

Scrolling Channels Yesterday while watching tv it started to cycle channels backwards. Hitting the power button on the remote didn't turn it off nor did hitting the power button the 1st time. Unplugged it thinking it might just be a glitch, but when I plugged it back in it just started doing it again. Sometimes the power button on the set itself works sometimes not, unhooking the cable from it seemed to work for about 15 minutes then it started doing it again. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Steve

You probably have a bad channel down switch on the TV. This is common if any kind of liquid spilled inside of the TV near the controls. The other possibility is just a stuck button on the control pad itself. Sometimes the plastic warps a bit causing to rub against the cabinet causing it to stick. Try moving the button and see if it has free movement.

I have lost the remote for my tv. How can I change from tv to video on the tv itself? I have tried hitting the source button then scrolling to video with the channel buttons but nothing happens


Unfortunately with most tv's today, you can't do much other than change channels or volume control without a remote.
Do you have an input button on the tv, if so, that will allow you to change from TV to video.

At power up, tv scrolls uncontrolably through channels, power light flickers


1. Take remote control far away from tv - 3rd or fourth room. Then switch on tv. If uncontrollable scrolling stops , then cause may be remote button (Ch+ or Ch-) has got dirt inside and its shorting.

2. If taking remote far away doesn't stop scrolling then (Ch+ or Ch-) button on front pannel has shorted. Take a cutter plier and care fully remove button from its circuit board. ( If you know desoldering, it is far better than cutting). If scrolling stops then you can operate channel change with remote.

Toshiba tv 40rv525u has started to change channels


My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna).
my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777..
later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel
I call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and time.

Now, I found how to fix it myself.

In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV.
========================
What I did
========================
unplug the power cord.
Remove back cover.
Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).

First, I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable).
I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.

I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard.
I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.

Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.

DONE.

I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there.
Close the TV back panel

I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling.
NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.

Hope this help someone else.

Rca truflat tv with univsersal remote. attempting to change input to view dvd but no input button on remote. Is there an alternative


Look for a "source" button, if you do not find one, just try scrolling through the channels as some TV sets will cycle through inputs after you cyucle through channels.

Tips to operate without remote


You might try hitting the MENU button on the tv itself to see if you are able to select input / source that way. Some TVs also have the Aux Inputs selected by scrolling through the channels until you come to the aux inputs.

Toshiba 40rv525r screen says NOT AVAILABLE


I've had the same issue! This is caused by the control panel telling the TV what to do - does it change channels on its own, too, or turn off or on on its own?

What you need to do (if you've not already done it) is lock the control panel out, which you can do under the LOCK menu.

What may help is running the factory reset on page 54.

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.

Turn tv on, and it scrolls through the channels


Had the same problem, channels would not stop scrolling.
It was as though someone had there finger on the channel up button.
Disconnected the sixth wire, starting with the black wire on the wiring harness for the front buttons, on/off, ch. up/down, vol. up/down, etc.
It works fine, no more unwanted channel surfing!!
