Turning on and changing channels with no input from remote

We have this TV that out of nowhere started to turn on without actually turning it on and changing channels randomly after it is on.

I had the same problem. Had a technician come out since tv was under warranty. He cleaned the circuit board that controls the front panel, and said it was probably from me cleaning the screen with Windex and having it drip onto the board. Well, it worked for another 2 years before it started doing it again. And I don't clean it like that anymore. Perhaps you can check and see if your board is messed up....hope this helps a bit.

Cant change from av to any input


First try a simple "reset":

1) Turn TV off. Unplug all TV inputs, and the AC plug from wall. Wait 5 minutes (I mean it, a full 5 minutes!).
2) Connect your normal TV source (cable or satellite) ONLY, then plug in and turn on the TV.
3) You may need to press the RESET key twice after connecting the signal and turning on the DTV to restore some functionality.

Now plug in ONE A/V component at a time to test. You can also try replacing any A/V cables (RCA red/yellow/white, HDMI, etc.), as cables do occasionally go bad.

Make sure TV is "tuned" to channel 3 before pressing the "input" button on remote control This is easiest done with the actual channel up/down buttons on the front of the television itself, or possibly by pressing 03 (or 03, Enter) on the remote control.

You may find that only one A/V input is bad (ex, VIDEO 1 port), while others work.. or they may all be bad.

If other functions of remote control are working (but "input" button still does nothing), could simply be a bad remote. Try eBay for a cheap replacement.

If there is not a manual "input" button on the TV itself (I think not for this particular model), and you still can't change AV input, you are probably out of luck. I recommend read included instruction manual carefully, then contact the manufacturer if needed. Instruction manual may be viewed at:
http://www.manualslib.com/manual/599522/Sanyo-Dp42746.html#manual

Do not attempt to disassemble TV. There are no user-serviceable parts inside, and even an unplugged TV can retain enough electricity (in capacitors, etc.) to seriously hurt a non-trained human. This TV is probably ~ 9 years old; parts are available (eBay, etc), but may not be worth fixing considering huge price drops on new TVs available now.

Tv won't switch to "tv"


Your T.V. is programmed to store the last input you've selected. You have to manually switch it back to your T.V. channel input after each time you switch it to HDMI or any other input even when you turn it off. The "Source" or "Input" button on your original T.V. remote will change this.

Whenever I turn on the TV it turns on in component input mode therfore forcing me to have to change the input every time I turn on the TV just to watch it! Can you please help me?


There may be an option in the menu section of the T V (may be by using the remote) that is switchable between turning on with last channel viewed, or it is set to turn on to a particular channel or input such as that component input. Hope this helps.

Game Mode


On the TV itself, press the MENU button. When the menu opens, "PICTURE" should be highlighted in pink and the rest of the menu items will be an aqua color. That means you are in the right place....Press the volume "up" button... this will open up the Picture menu items. When the menu opens, start pressing the channel "up" button. You will see (bright, color, etc.) options in this menu. Keep pressing the channel up button until you see "Game Mode"... the options will be ON and OFF. Use the volume "up" and/or "down" buttons to toggle back and forth between ON and OFF... if you want to watch TV, be sure to turn the Game Mode OFF... otherwise the picture will be VERY dark...
