Re: Channels changing by themself

I have seen problems like this caused by spilled liquid. Bad switches can definitely do this as well, and can be, themselves, filled with dried sugary goo or corrosion. I wish you could still download schematics for these, but TTE (RCA's new horrible Chinese owners) shut this off. Now they want $40 a pop for schematics, making repair unfeasable for many units. If the switches are a standard type, you can get them many places. You can also clean them by removing them from the board and washing them in isopropyl alcohol, with limited success. Parts for older RCA/GE sets are still available. Most good distributors will research and order these for you gladly, so you can merely call and tell them what you want. The new Chinese RCA/GE/Proscan units are essentially disposable, so don't get a new one of this brand.

Tv changes channels when turned on.

Be sure your remote hasn't got a button stuck down which is changing channels. If not, take the batteries out of the remote. If this stops the channel changing there is probably some conductve material stuck across the circuit board
inside the remote. If this is the case you have to check inside the remote by openning it up.

TV turns on & off by itself. Channels also change by themselves.

Make sure your remote is totally away from the set.
Make sure the buttons on the set are not sticky
If both of those are ok, it's your E-Prom in the set. RCA's are notorious for this, not a major repair, maybe $75-100. The 8 leg e-rom is only about $6.00

TV Changes Channels by itself

The keyboard switches are going bad part# 432P109010 (there are ten of them).To verify this, disconnect the connecting wire to the keyboard pc board and see if you still have the problem- the remote will still function normal- the green power led will not light up when you power on the TV with it disconnected so listen for the click and wait for the TV to power up when you use the remote.

If you have a menu button on the front of the Tv, you could search for an autoprogram or channel search menu and select that. Otherwise a cheap universal remote might be needed. You also want to make sure it is selected to receive antenna and not cable channels.

TV changes channels itself

Have you checked to see if any of the front panel buttons are depressed and stuck??? this is a big problem these days?? I have also found the infared remote sensor to be bad on some sets that do crazy things all by them selfs.. A funny storry once i had was a customer called me after her mother called some goast finders as her maggy projection set would go on all by itself andf the channels would change and the volume would go up and down all by its self. funny thing I had a set just like thast in the shop at the time with the same problem and I scoped out the output pulse from the infared reciver on the set and that was putting out noise on the data line and caused the set to eratacly do all sorts of weird stuff. get the point?? its a stck button or the remote sensor is bad.
