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

Re: Scrolling Channels

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.

Use av on mikomi ctv 14440 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.

My aiwa tv a 219 remote locked how to open it.

Aiwa television comes with the option of blocking certain channels from viewing, allowing you to control which channels people using the television can view. However, if you forget the code that you entered to block the channels, you might find yourself unable to watch those channels. Fortunately, there are a couple of buttons on the television and the remote that you can press to reset the PIN and customer ID numbers, which unblocks the channels.

Turn the television on.

Press the "Volume Down" button on the front of the TV and press the "7" button on the remote at the same time.

Enter in a new PIN code and new customer ID.

Sounds like a tact switch problem at the front of the set. The switches are just behind the front panel buttons. Don't replace just one. Replace them all. They are not expensive and will avoid trouble later. If one switch is getting stuck internally, nothing else will work including the remote.

Channels keep scrolling

Check for a channel button on the front of the set.. one of them is sticking. Try spraying some WD40 around the front buttons and work each one to make sure none are sticking in..

Channel keeps changing

It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

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!!
