An all too common problem with that unit is the Ssb or (small signal board, Philips p/n# PH3912725871 located just behind the tuner. It's actually a simple fix for a shop, what we call a plug & play repair but the part isn't so cheap. Last one I did thursday I bought from Vance Baldwin $267.82 plus shipping and core. You get the core back when you return the old part.
You might call a few shops like you know what you're doing and ask what they charge for changing the Ssb in your unit.
Have a great day!

My Emerson LC501EM3 is constantly trying to turn down the volume. Its acted screwy before and was constantly turning off and on, but eventually stopped. But now its started this volume stuff, I've tri

I would try taking the TV apart and removing/re-seating the control panel and buttons. It could be that the mechanism of the buttons is jammed or damaged in some way. In many cases breaks and damage to plastic mechanisms in there can be repaired with a bit of super glue.

Bush lcd42f1080p100hz remote will not turn tv on

I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!

Remote sensor on tv not responding I,have to turn on tv manually. change input manually,tv reception is ok. Volume cannot be controlled,it will lock in at full volume or drift back & forth,mostley...

Have you checked your remote to see if its working? If you have a digital camera or camera phone, point the remote at the lense and see if it shows up on camera screen. If it is working then the IR sensor on the tv could be bad.

The volume for my TV keeps turning up (to the highest leve) by itself and I cannot stop it. what should I do?

Make sure the Volume Button on the remote control or TV itself is not stuck down.

These problems are usually that simple to solve, if that does not work, then I can think of no other reason for this to happen... unless someone is toying with you and doing it with another remote (not Likely)

Samsung le40r74bd problem

I just had this problem with my 3 year old 32" Samsung LCD. The volume would go up and down by itself, normally just constantly going up even when it reached 100%.

I thought it might have something to do with the volume buttons on the TV itself so seeing as it was out of warranty anyway I decided to unplug it and open it up.

I gave it a good clean and I disconnected the cable for the panel of buttons on the LCD itself (volume, menu, channel etc) seeing as I never use them anyway. I then put everything else back together and tested.

It seems to be working fine now. Previously (for the past 3 hours) ever time I turned it on the volume level would come on instantly and stay on until I turned the TV off. So I’m quietly confident the problem has been fixed. But I must admit it’s only been 10 minutes, so who knows, it might come back.

The volume is turning itself down all by itself. The volume on the remote won't work, but the remote is fine with the other TV controls.

It sounds like the button is stuck. Take the remote apart if you can and see if the key is stuck somewhere. This happened to me once with a rubber key type of remote. It drove me crazy.

The buttons on control panel are there for convince not for everyday use. Use remote, your control panel is bad.
