A few days ago, I noticed the channels on the TV were just changing on their own. At first it was occasional, but it has progressed to constantly changing channels. It goes from 0 to 99 and then recycles, staying on each channel about a "second". I thought it might be the remote control so I removed the batteries. The problem persisted. I haven't been able to find a manual on this model so don't have a clue as to where the problem is or how to fix it. I am electronic technician so I'm comfortable working on electronic problems when I know what they are and have service manual.

You have to get nasty with the manufacturer at times to get what you want. No reason a remote can't be replaced in a few days; however, the problem seems to be the TV itself. If the remote is not active, and you experience channel changes automatically, it may be the TV receiver section alone. Call the company and mention that without the remote energized you have channel changes, they can run you through diagnostics to find the problem.
Sometimes its tricky with those buttons on the front but with most tv's you can get to the menu and change inputs.
One you figure that out you will want to go back in and add that input as a channel in the add/remove channel section then you will be able to get to that input by just changing the channel down below 2
( another way to do this would be to run the auto program with the devices on and see if it adds them that way)
it depends if its just that input or the whole tv itself if it works on other inputs it may not be to bad to fix, but if its the tv itself it depends on how old it is and how much you paid. it could wind up costing quite a bit. so take all those things into consideration. it might just be time to upgrade
Tis is an ongoing problem I seen increase alot over the past few months. From what I can gather, all the channels being broadcast over going from the analog to digital, there's no big suprise to anyone. However, the change from analog to digital is changing at a faster rate, so when you look at the TV some channels will be fine and others will have grey lines, fuzzy picture. The only solution-you need a TV with some kind of digital tuner. On the TV itself if the (TV has one) it will say "SD" or "ED" which stands for standard digital or enhanced digital.
