Question about RCA D52W20 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

RCA HDTV My t.v. is 4 yrs old and just recently has started to change channels by itself and when turned off it turns itself back on. After unplugging and letting it sit for a couple of days, it will be o.k. for a couple of hours and then starts the process all over again.

Most probably, you may have problems with your keypad, the keypads are actuall called "tact switches" and they can become "corrupted" or leakey or just stuck, you cant really measure a DC restistance but they can cause all kinds of strange phenomenon such as you describe....if possible, replace the keypad PCB or, if not replace the individual keypads

the button cluster in the front may have a bad tack switch(button) or the buttons may have loose connections. you can take the speaker grill off and look for wires..unplug your tv first:) also if you use spray cleaner that may have seeped into the button cluster may be able to get the cluster as a whole from a local tv repair shop and put it in labor charges:)
