We changed the batteries in the remote and we still can't change channels or adjust the volume either with the remote or on the TV itself.

Do you have a universal remote? If the batteries are taken out for a little period of time, the remote will loose the codes and they will have to be reset. You can find the codes by google universal remote codes.

If you have a factory remote that came with the television, than it may be faulty or the sensor on remote or tv may need to be cleaned.

Why won't my Goodmans digtial box remote change channels or volume on the TV?


Think about it. The digibox remote should only change its own channels, not the TV ones. Otherwise the TV would never be on the correct channel to see the digibox signal.

As for the volume, unless the Goodmans remote is programmable to emulate the TV volume, then it will just change its own volume. The result is the same. The TV gets louder or quieter.

Volume moving on it's own


Either the key/button the TV or Remote is stuck. Just remove the batteries of the remote and try. If same thing continues, do vacuum cleaning of the panel button/switch after switching of the TV, removing the plug from the power outlet. If the problem persists, this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

My television set is stuck on one channel....the audio changes with the channel but the picture stays blurred on one channel...whats wrong with it?


Lots of possibilities. If you are using the remote, try also using buttons on the TV to change channels. If TV buttons work, the remote is broken or perhaps try changing batteries and cleaning battery contacts on the remote. If neither work, lots of other things to try. You may need to set preselect channels, so your TV thinks there is only one channel out there until you do. If you are on a cable box you just need channel 3 and change channels on the cable box. I can't tell what you mean by "audio changes with the channel" ... if you mean that when you try to advance channels, it increases volume and moving down in channels lowers volume that would be strange -- if you are using a programable remote it might not be set correctly (try another programming code). The "blurred" picture is probably symptomatic of having the set on the wrong channel, and if you could set channel it might clear up ... I'd start with getting channels to change. If you need more help, give the brand and model of TV, say if you are using a remote (original or programable), and what the 'audio changes' comment means in more detail. Probably worst case is that your tuner circuit is fried, but don't assume that without more diagnostic.

Remote fall on floor and now it is stuck on one channel and I can not turn off the TV or change a channel or lower the volume


Hi, well you can do everything from the axtual TV itself, have a look on the TV you will find a setof buttons/keys. these allow you to controll almost everything that the remote can do.
here you can change channel change volume etc.
The buttons usually there are 6- 7 marked On/Off, Channel up/down, Volume Up/Down, Enter/OK & Menu. Now pressing these will bring up the onscreen display and you can adjust what you wish.
Now with the remote, it's probably best to obtain a new one..
Sometimes disassembly may fix it, but it sounds like it has a bad problem.
To ensure it doesn't interfere remove the batteries.

Lg lcd tv keeps changing chanels


Come on, lets try to solve this. Take the batteries out of the remote so it can't interfere and try changing the channels and volume with the buttons on the tv. If this works then someone has spillled something onto the remote and gummed it all out. You simply need to take the remote apart and clean it out. If the buttons on the tv do th same as the remote did then yes, take it back.

Mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume


Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.
