Re: TV turning on and off

Follow-up for the RCA set coming on and off by itself....
We took the set apart and cleaned the ribbon connections for the front switch board. We touched up the solder connections on the circuit board as well. Once re-assembled, the set played for the rest of the day with no further problems.
Maybe it was a poor connection.
If you DO decide to do as we did, BE CAREFUL.
The set is very heavy. Get help.
Unplug the set before you do anything else.
The high voltage circuit can still hurt you after unplugging. Stay away from ANY large components.
You're on your own if you get hurt. Be careful.

When i turn the tv. on, the volume line appears all the way to zero. if i turn the volume up, it goes up but when i release the up button the volume goes down all by itself.

It sounds like one of the volume down buttons is stuck in the activate position. The same as if you were holding the down volume button continuously. It could be either the volume down button on the TV or the remote. I would try remove the batteries of the remote then adjust the volume by the TV buttons.

If the volume doesn't go back down then the remote is the problem. In order to fix the remote you may need to take it apart. This is normally easy to do just locate any screws that may be holding the remote together. If you don't see any screws then you will need to pry the two sections apart. Separate the circuit board and rubber buttons and clean them both with some rubbing alcohol and reassemble it. If it still has the volume issue you may need to replace it.

If the problem persists with the remote deactivated then it's the volume button located on the TV. That is a little more difficult. You can try wiggling the button or some canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to blow it clean. However it may need to be disassembled to gain access to the switches for proper cleaning.
Hope this helps.

TV Volume turns down by itself - Philips 29PT8319 Matchline 27"

Most likely the volume down button on the front of the TV or the switch that it activates is sticking. Should be an easy fix otherwise.
