Question about RCA F32650 32" TV

Keeps changing channels/volume by itself

The on/off button does not work, but the remote turns it off and on ok.

Then it just keeps changing channels and volumes.

It cannot be set to any channel with the remote or channel selection on the tv.

First problem ever.

The on/button has been split for a long time, but worked well up to this point.

Re: Keeps changing channels/volume by itself

I took the front switch unit to a repair man to have the switches replaced, or the whole cuicuit board.  He took one look, sprayed the whole board with WD40, and said try that!  When I put it back together, the on/off button worked, but everthing else did not.  I then took a can of automotive spray for wet wiring problems and soaked the whole cuicuit board and the switches  down and let it soak in. Then dabbed up the excess and put it back together.  Everything has worked perfectly now for two weeks!

Re: Keeps changing channels/volume by itself

One or more of the front switches are likely leaky.  They are less than $3 apiece and I just change them all to save future problems.  You might be able to push all of the buttons on the front of the set a few times such as volume up and down and channel up and down and temporarly cure the problem but the switches will likely need to be changed.

Hi my RCA 27 Truflat tv keeps changing channels , the volume keeps going all the way up and it is turning it's self on and off. What could be the problem and how to fix? THanks

The micro buttons on the tv are causing the problem. Mine kept going up in the channels like you are holding the button down. I took the button board and clipped to prongs on the micro switch to the channel up button. It has three prongs on one side and two on the other that you clip.I use the remote all the time any way and it will not affect that.

Powers on and off my itself. Changes channels by itself

i had the same problem. i opened the t.v. took out the circuit board to the buttons and broke off the little resistor things to all the buttons. JUST BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK THE ONES LEADING TO THE IR LIGHT. if you can find another button board thatd be a better fix. let me know if you do please. anyway put it back together and use the remote from now on and it wont turn itself off anymore. my guess is one of the buttons shorted out or something.

Television turns on and off, turns up volume and changes channels


Replace all tact switches at the control panel... all switches is have bad resistance thats why your system is abnormal!

TV turns on and changes channels on its own

Keeps changing channel
Check voltage on D12 if below 4.8V then change
Changes channel or volume adjusts by itself
Check S900/1/2 on pcb H1, alternatively this could be due to failure of IC005 (CD4052BCM-FL63) on pcb A

Channels keep changing

ok, let's try the simplest things first.... unplug the tv from the wall, and remove the batteries from the remote. wait about 5 or 10 minutes. reinstall the batteries and plug the tv back in. try it again. actually since you said you tried another remote, you can skip removing the batteries from the remote. if it still does it, try unplugging the tv overnight. if it still doesn't work right then, you have a processor problem, and need to have it looked at by a service tech.
