Volume go up to MAX, power button does not work

I have a Toshiba model 32A43, the other day, without any buttons being pushed, the volume suddenly went to maximum, the power button would not work, volume can not be turned down on the set or by remote, but the channels will change using the set's controls. After turning the power off at the power strip several times it finally seemed to reset. It worked fine for about a week and did it again. The buttons don't seem to have the same "feel" as when it was working properly. Can it be fixed? If so, about what should it cost to fix it? Should I toss it and get a new one?

Re: Volume go up to MAX, power button does not work

To all of you, change the tact switches (all of them) on the front panel control board and end of problem, very common problem, part number for these switches is 23344443, any or several will become "leaky" and give all sorts of symptoms, MANY times this is caused by using windex or similiar type cleaners, it gets into the switches and corrupts them, this will fix-ya, BMW Rider

Model: 32A43 Problem: Volume goes UP automatically. Channel scolls automatically. I tried using the remote and the buttons on the tv panel but neither works. I tried turning the TV off with the remote and...

check the front button plate on the front of the tv very carefully.if it has been hit with something and either or any button is pushed in,it will not listen to other commands.make sure each button has a distinct click when pushed.a frozen button will cause other things not to sounds to me like two buttons are making contact,and they are beside each other,so the button plate is crooked or warped.

Volume stuck maxed out

the intrenal switch that controls the volume up is shorted. you need to have it replaced. the short of the switch doesn't allow any other buttons on the set to work because the micro is recieving the volume up command. it's as if there is an invisible finger pushing the volume up button. the switch is a tachtile switch which is very inexpencive to repair about $50.00 total. if you want to do the repair yourself be aware there are voltages that remain in the set that can be harmful. 50% of the time the cause of these switches shorting is improper screen cleaning. some people spray glass cleaner directly on the screen, this is bad. the cleaner drips into the set and lands on the PC board where the buttons are housed. but I've seen the other 50% also which is hummidity, dust(not anyones fault this just happens), and simple switch failure. so becareful repairing it your self

Hi, You can try resetting the TV. In some other brands/models, hard reset is done by unplugging the TV from the mains for a couple of hours. Preferably check your owner's manual for more specific instructions. Good luck and kind regards.

Toshiba TV 35A44 Volume Issue

I had the same problem, you'll probably find that that particular button will push further into the set then the others, this is due to the a weakening of a cheesy metal guide which directs the projection off the back of the button into the corresponding microswitch. This metal guide will bend and will push against the switch.My solution, (and it ain't pretty) was to unplug the set, remove the button( I used a dremel cutting bit), locate the guide,a small metal plate with a hole in it. Bend the plate toward the front of the set then tape over the hole. I haven't had the problem since.You WILL have to use your remote for further functionality of the volume, However all of the buttons seem to be inherantly poorly designed and will weaken over time, AVOID USING THEM!

Menu won't stop popping up!

The first thing I would check is if any of the buttons on the tv has been push in too far including the menu button,if any of this buttons is making contact it will confuse the microcomputer and the rest of button become inoperable.Another possibility is corrosion in the buttons beacuse soemething has spill into them like pop or water.Check it out and let us know.Be careful,make sure set is not plug in.
