Question about RCA F36665 36" TV
At first I thought my remote had gone nuts because the tv kept showing up the menus and volume controls and mute etc. on the screen. After a few days the front panel started working real crazy also. No matter what button I pushed sometime it would show up as the correct menu and sometimes it would not. Then without anyone pushing anything and all the batteries out of all the remotes, the tv would start runnig through its menus. Finally the on/off switch stopped working correctly. I would have to push the volume button to turn the tv on and unplug it to turn it off. After looking at some other suggestions on this site, I took off the back of my tv and looked inside. I then removed the front panel buttons all together and actually unplugged them from the motherboard. Now the tv works without crazy images appearing. (I run the volume and channel changing through other things) I just have to plug and unplug the tv to turn it on and off. This is okay but I would like to know what that part is actually called (and it's part number) and if you think it would be expensive to buy a new one. And if there is a good place to buy it online. I'd appreciate any help.
I have the same TV but the picture keeps jumping every few seconds. Antone have any ideas about this?

How old is this set? some of the late 90's early 2ks had issues with the Gemstar module, then you also said that you unplugged the buttons, if unplugging the buttons fixed your problem, you probably have contamination in the buttons and they are $2 switches, I would replace all 8 (if you have 8) as I do in some of the CTC169 Chassis televisions, depends upon your level of expertise and such. This set has the Guide+ system and I think that you might have a Gemstar issue still, it is a little 2" square box that has 2 ribbon cables that plug into it, and is fairly easily replaceable.
