Re: power turns on and off by its self

The problem is the key board controller is malfunctioning. I have contacted a multitude of supply houses even
RCA included and I have not been able to buy the part. However, you can bypass the problem by disabling the key board functions by activating the parental control item, not the password, by using the remote. All the keys on the front panel will be disabled but you can still operate the tv with the remote plus save yourself a cost on parts and labor.

I need to program my Sanyo remote to all available channels. What is the code for a Sanyo GXBD remote?

I think this may be what you need I will tell you and we can see. Its true most remotes have codes but their are so many of them it would be hard to say. But as a fail safe the remote is programmed with a self coder. turn your T V off stand away from it a couple of feet and aim your remote at it, then start pushing the power button slowly at about 2 second intervals just keep pushing sometimes you may have to depress the power button as many as 50 times but the T V should turn on when it does use your remote and go to menu channel select and scan it should log the channels in automatically in about 3 minutes

I would suspect it has bad switches at the front panel behind the push buttons. If it is an RCA or GE tv, change them all at one time. They aren't expensive and will avoid later problems.

Unlockin all the channels

In order to get all the channels u have to have the original remote or a universal remote that has a menu button, an enter button, and directional pad (the directional pad cannot control the volume and channels it must be for navigating). push and hold the menu button, the menu will appear then disappear, once it disappears release the button and enter 9876 then press enter. a different menu will appear and it will b three black lines, one at the top of the screen, one in the middle and one at bottom. the middle line has 3 sections the first part is the item number the second part is the description and the last part is the on/off switch using either a 0 or 1. push down on the directional pad until u get to the 00 factory settings 0 and change the 0 to a 1 with the right button on the directional pad. then scroll up to 20 channel lock 0 (i think its 20, it may be like 22 but it is in the twenties for sure) and change the 0 to a 1. then go back down to the 00 factory settings and change the 1 back to 0 then turn the tv off. when u turn the tv back on it will either automatically ask u to auto tune or u will have to go to auto program to program the channels. there are like 80 different menu items, be sure not to mess with any other ones unless u know what ur doing, u could cause ur tv not to function properly or even be able to turn on.

this problem frustrated me greatly and im very happy to help whoever i can with the solution

No picture, stuck on Video 1, volume self-adjust to maximum

the tacticle (micro switches)on the front of the main chassis have most likely gotten wet at some time,I suggest replacing them all.

Scrolling Channels

You probably have a bad channel down switch on the TV. This is common if any kind of liquid spilled inside of the TV near the controls. The other possibility is just a stuck button on the control pad itself. Sometimes the plastic warps a bit causing to rub against the cabinet causing it to stick. Try moving the button and see if it has free movement.
