Re: tv is possesed

There is a broken solder joint or trace somewhere on the circuit board. VERY difficult to find.

Hi my RCA 27 Truflat tv keeps changing channels , the volume keeps going all the way up and it is turning it's self on and off. What could be the problem and how to fix? THanks

The micro buttons on the tv are causing the problem. Mine kept going up in the channels like you are holding the button down. I took the button board and clipped to prongs on the micro switch to the channel up button. It has three prongs on one side and two on the other that you clip.I use the remote all the time any way and it will not affect that.

My tv is in demo mode and I need to remove it

Try holding the channel up and volume down buttons together on the front of the set until it cuts off. When you turn it back on it should be normal mode. If channel up and volume down doesn't work try channel down and volume up. Thanks

I was watching tv when suddenly the volume control indicator bar showed up and started going up and then down and the remote will not operate the tv. the set it self will allow me to change channels and...

The front panel Tactile Switches probably need to be replaced. The part # of the switches is 23344507. You can order them through Encompass Elect. 800-638-3328.
Hope this helps,

Menu will not come up. Channel will not change. No remote.

I did not get who the manufacture was of the tv but you may want to see if one or more of
the menue buttons are stuck down on the tv's front panel. This has been a common cause of
problems with Mitsubishi and Sony tv's. It could also cause volume to go up by it's self, no menue
functions, no power up and or no remote control functions to work.
Hope this helps,

Help Finding Replacement Parts

I had the exact same problem with the channel/volume autoshifting. I found a electronic firm that would rebuilt the board for $185.00 plus shipping-----screw that. I cut the plastic hold down nubs on the channel/volume buttons itself and disassembled the contact. Inside the button was a copper metal disc showing arc tracks and "carbon scoring" on the underside. I just removed the button guts and now use the remote for channel and volume adjustments. So far the power button still works for me. I may try buffing and cleaning the disc and contacts later, but what the hey, I'd rather surf with the remote from the couch.

Tv wont stay on channel

This TV actually has bad buttons I've seen many of them, usually those switches never go bad but on this tv they do. The easiest thing to do is remove them, and use the remote, who uses those buttons anyway. You can slide out the circuit board and you will see the small switches in front if you can solder just remove remove them if not you can cut them out just be careful none of the pins remaining in the board are touching one another.
