Re: Channels Switch by themselves?

I would examine the pushbuttons at the front of the PC board to see if they have been contaminated with any kind of liquid that was sprayed or spilled inside. If they are contaminated then you can try cleaning them with lacquer thinner or replacing them and cleaning the board. If they are clean then this is a symptom of a defective main computer IC, and I have seen this on many of these sets. Unfortunately, this IC is surface mounted on a sub board and the board would have to be replaced and reprogrammed, and this would have to be done by someone with experience in these sets.

TV flips through channels at 2 channels per second.

It sounds like a button is stuck or bad. I would spray some electrical cleaner on the buttons 1st. If that don't work, the switch is probably bad.

I have a 10 yr old Sony tv that is blurry

No, most likely scenario is that the cable company compressed the signal further so they can stuff more channels on the wire. The cable guy is caught in the middle of this. The poor guys will tell you anything to get you to turn your head, then they slip out the door. He can''t do anything and the company is looking at the big dollar. I don't think you will have much luck pushing back to them. I hope this helps.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

When hooked up to digital cable box aspect ration changes from 4:3 to 16:9

I wonder, does it do this on all programs ? I notice the same thing on my cable box when some of the wide screen movies are shown. I know of no adjustment on a Sony that would cause this effect. Stargazer

TV will not get cable channels

If you have it hooked up to a digital box, it shouldn't matter if the TV is on cable or antenna mode. The only thing that matters is that the TV is on channel 3. Channels will be changed on digital box. Some newer TV's use input 1 or 2 or AUX for it to work. If I were you i would hook everything up and start playing with the channels going up and down until you get a picture.
