Question about Panasonic CT-32G9 32" TV

1 Answer

TV Won't Power Down; Change Channels; Change Volume; etc

Hello, I cannot change channels, modify the volume, or power off my Panasonic 32" TV (either from the remote control - which has new batteries - or from the front panel controls). The only way I can power off the set is to unplug it. The TV picture tube seems just fine - I just can't seem to get it out of some sort of locked mode (pressing the front panel buttons simply shows the various menu control option, non of which I can select). I have tried all of the steps in the troubleshooting chart in the user's manual (presing ACTION and TV/VIDEO buttons simultaneously & then pressing ACTION and left VOL buttons, etc, with no luck. I have had this exact problem before - I simply unplugged the set and it was corrected. This obviously no longer solves the problem. Any suggestions? Thanks, chiodini98

The buttons on top of mt tv go crazy the flip channels automatically and turn volume up and down automatically

I have had this problem on this same model (F32650) and I discovered that what is happening is that dust and debris are causing the microswitches in the panel to short, therefore the channel starts changing and wont stop or the volume changes etc...
Get some electronic switch cleaner and (with the power off of course!) spray into the crevaces around each button and press each button a few times and then power the unit back on and it should be fine.

I was able to program my Comcast remote to control the volume of my tv, but was unable to get it to change channels. Is there something else that I should do?

Controlling the TV power and volume is probably all you'll be able to do with that control. The Comcast remotes are meant to be used with their converter boxes, and normally people want to change channels on the box while the TV stays on the box output channel (usually 3, sometimes 4). The remote's channel up and down buttons and number keypad only send out the codes recognized by the converter box. You'll need to fall back to the TV remote if you want to control more than power and volume.

Tv channel will not change and volume keeps increasing without to

Most likely you have a defecvtive volume up switch. Unsolder it from the board, and see if problem goes away. Very common problem. Since only one function can work at a time, none of the others will work until you "release" that switch

"snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work

good day
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.
