Volume Problem Occasionally the TV will turn the volume down to zero or all the way up to 100 of its own accord. It also seems to have problems turning on as well. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks!

Re: Volume Problem

There are small tact switches behind the buttons on the front of the TV set. These switches go intermittent sometimes on Toshiba TV's and will cause all sorts of problems. This could be due to someone spraying the front ogf the screen with cleaner and the cleaner dripping down the front by the picture tube and dripping onto the printed circuit board. This can be checked by carefully sliding out the chassis of the TV set and looking for a green corrosion around the small switches. If you have no experience with printed circuit boards or TV repair, play it safe and take the TV set into a repair shop, as this should not be a big deal or cost you a great deal of cash. Good Luck

Volume automatically goes to the loudest

There should be a setting that allows you to set the "Power On" volume level. Check the menu Under Volume settings.

Randomly my volume is as loud as it can get no matter what. Whether the volume is on 1 or 60 it is blaring. Turning the volume to zero is still muted...anything I can do to fix this problem?

I turned my television off and unplugged it for a few hours and when I plugged it back in and turned it on... the volume worked like normal again. Woo

When i turn the tv. on, the volume line appears all the way to zero. if i turn the volume up, it goes up but when i release the up button the volume goes down all by itself.

It sounds like one of the volume down buttons is stuck in the activate position. The same as if you were holding the down volume button continuously. It could be either the volume down button on the TV or the remote. I would try remove the batteries of the remote then adjust the volume by the TV buttons.

If the volume doesn't go back down then the remote is the problem. In order to fix the remote you may need to take it apart. This is normally easy to do just locate any screws that may be holding the remote together. If you don't see any screws then you will need to pry the two sections apart. Separate the circuit board and rubber buttons and clean them both with some rubbing alcohol and reassemble it. If it still has the volume issue you may need to replace it.

If the problem persists with the remote deactivated then it's the volume button located on the TV. That is a little more difficult. You can try wiggling the button or some canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to blow it clean. However it may need to be disassembled to gain access to the switches for proper cleaning.
Hope this helps.

Volume turns down

It's probably a tact switch problem, something we call in the industry awindex syndrome. The tact switches, depending on the ones effected, can turn the tv on/off by itself, channel +/- at will or in your case control the volume.
Tact switches are not expensive to replace but a bit difficult to get to if you're not trained. They are at the very front of the board - looking from the back - and some disassembly may be necessary to take the main board out.
A reputable shop wouldn't charge much do fix this problem, switches are about a dollar a piece.
Good Luck

Mitsubishi WS55807 - sound / volume fluctuates

This model is equipped with a keyboard lock feature. To unlock the keyboard press and hold the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds. If this doesn't help you have to make some checks in set. First IC7D04 (temperature related) may cause lines in pic. Check 9v DC on terminal PCB at Connector JA pins 57&58 if missing then change IC9C25 part#270p677030 on signal PCB.

TV Volume turns down by itself - Philips 29PT8319 Matchline 27"

Most likely the volume down button on the front of the TV or the switch that it activates is sticking. Should be an easy fix otherwise.
