Question about HP PL4245N 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
My tv is about 2 and a half months old. Reently it has started changing the volume by itself and changing channels by itself . We turn it up and it turns itself down again. We have changed batteries in control thinking it was that. Please if anyone has had this happen or know how to fix it it would be appreciated.
The bad news is the problem is almost always a malfunction internal to the tv, it is sometimes caused by electrostatic discharge from carpet and touching the control panel on the tv. Have you recently been zapped when you touched a button?
The good news is that the TV should still be under warranty, Sony has a good repair or exchange policy, you should also look into the return policy of the merchant you bought it from. You may be able to take it to the store and exchange it.

I am always a little leary giving bad news because it damages my rating on FixYa if I am rated badly. It is sometimes a Shoot The Messenger response.
Thanks for using FixYa and if I can help with anything else please let me know.
Please rate this solution.
