Question about RCA F31317 31" TV
I will preface this by saying I know very little about televisions or electronics. I received this TV from a friend, and it worked fine for a little while. The current problems: - The power button does on front of TV does NOT power it on; instead, the volume + button turns on the tv. - Volume seems to be at max setting, and the volume buttons on the TV don't work right. One of them (+) turns the tv on and off. - The remote doesn't work properly. It will turn the tv on and off, but when it's pointed at the tv, the 'guide' thing will come up, and most buttons won't work. Volume, channel, menu, input, etc. Some will bring up the menu, which will select the option directly below it, even when I haven't pushed anything...and somehow, my tv menu is now in spanish. It's not much of a problem, but it only flashes on the screen, too fast for me to read it, not that the buttons will do anything to help me navigate the menu. I really hope someone can help me. I've had it less than two months, and it worked for a little more than one month.
Sounds to me like there is an issue in the control circuit, and quite possibly the micro itself. If you have issue with both the remote and buttons I am thinking a microprocessor issue since they normally enter the micro at different locations and therefore would not have a single component cause a failure across both of them (Except the micro of course) Best option may be a service center.
