Question about Philips 42PF5521D 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

Volume turns itself to maximum

Philips 42PF5521d/10
When I turn on the tv the volume automatically turns itself up to maximum. Pressing any buttons on the remote has no effect. When I press either the + or - volume buttons on the side of the set the volume does go down. But, as soon as I release the button the volume climbs back up to maximum again. Any ideas please?

You might need to get this checked with the manfucaturer, looks like a malfunctioning remote control. Or you can just replace the remot and see if that helps.

Samsung le40r74bd problem


I just had this problem with my 3 year old 32" Samsung LCD. The volume would go up and down by itself, normally just constantly going up even when it reached 100%.

I thought it might have something to do with the volume buttons on the TV itself so seeing as it was out of warranty anyway I decided to unplug it and open it up.

I gave it a good clean and I disconnected the cable for the panel of buttons on the LCD itself (volume, menu, channel etc) seeing as I never use them anyway. I then put everything else back together and tested.

It seems to be working fine now. Previously (for the past 3 hours) ever time I turned it on the volume level would come on instantly and stay on until I turned the TV off. So I’m quietly confident the problem has been fixed. But I must admit it’s only been 10 minutes, so who knows, it might come back.

Volume automatically goes to maximum on TCL TV


The volume (+) button on the TV is stuck or soiled if the volume automatically increases when the TV is turned on. To find out:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Press and hold the volume (-) button on the TV then turn it on.
  3. If the volume doesn't automatically increase, you have a stuck button.
  4. If it does increase, you have a faulty key control board.
  5. In either case, you have to replace the key control board.
To find it out further:
Warning: Beware of electric shock.Please do not proceed if you do not have the skill to do the following.
  1. Unplug the TV.
  2. Let it stand for 15 minutes to allow voltages to drain completely to avoid the risk of electric shock.
  3. Remove the screws securing the TV's back cover and pull it off.
  4. Disconnect the cable that runs from the main board to the control key board.
  5. Turn the TV on using the remote.
  6. In this manner you can use the remote control to run the TV while waiting for the control key replacement board.
To do a hard reset of the TV, unplug it and let it sit for 2 hours or long enough to completely drain the internal voltages.

My KDS-R60XBR1 turn up volume to maximum loud and stays loud


Question:
Take the batteries out of both the remotes and then try to turn the TV on with it's On/off switch built into the TV.
If it turns on and the volume stays the same, then it must be an issue with one of the remotes.
If the tv turns on and the volume ramps up to max. Please check if volume knobs/buttons on the tv itself to see if they are sticking.
If they aren't, there is something wrong with one of the boards in the tv of course. This sure should be something a Sony Service Shop can fix. I don't think it will be expensive. Maybe a $100 to $200 repair if they do the work.

Turns on automatically


use your camera on your phone and point the remote at the camera lense, you will probably find the remote is lit up and the remote is the problem, button on the remote is stuck and sending signal to the tv all the time until the batteries go flat. if its not that then the tv main av controller board has a fault. there area on the board for remote signal control.

Volume automatically goes to maximum


This sounds like there is a stuck button. With the TV off, try each of the panel buttons. You should feel the button engage. If not, that is the faulty one that should be replaced. Also, check to be sure that the plastic covering that extends to the actual switch inside the set is not broken causing a switch to be stuck on.
Keep us posted.

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.
