Question about AOC A42HD84 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

AOC Plasma TV turns on by itself and changes channels non stop.

I have AOC model A42HD84 Plasma TV and it turns on by itself, also changes channels non stop by itself. When I go to the menu screen it continually scrolls the options non stop. When I change from tuner input to any other input the display for that input does not go away. I'm a pretty technicaly inclined guy but cannot figure this out. Any input would be greatly apreciated.

I have an AOC 32" LCD HDTV and it turns on by itself as well. Tuning is done via my cable box, so the tv is set on HDMI and I don't have the channel changing issue. I as well am trying to figure it out. The only thing I could suggest is perhaps the remote batteries are low and triggering on it's own. Try changing the batteries, or ensure that the remove it in a drawer or other room so that triggering the unit is impossible. Hope that helps.

Looking for plasma screen just the screen

Plasma screens can only be purchased by the authorized service center for that brand. It will cost 2/3 of the total cost of the TV. So, before buying one, think it more.

This sounds like a screen driver problem. You will probably need to replace the screen, which can be expensive. It may be better to replace the TV. Ask a repair shop to give you a repair quote.

Normally, these remotes are programmable, I suspect that your remote lost it's programming maybe due to low battery condition. Look in your manual as how to reprogram your remote.

The dvd has fried the controller of the tv - **** happens. There is nothing you can do - the mainboard of the tv must be replaced. This is a job for a skilled person so take your tv to a repair shop. And junk the dvd player. Please, please, do not post your phone number and email address on an open site again, you don't know who's looking and it might get you into troubles.

Keeps shutting it self off


This sounds like a thermal - meaning heat - issue. It can be fairly expensive to track down this type of issue as it could be a failing component in the TV or even a small crack in solder on one of the circuit boards. Depending where you live there may be a TV repair service that can help with a minimal cost to check it out, but my instinct is that the cost to repair it will be close to or even more than purchasing a new one.

Hope this helps,

Can change the sound with my remotes

I recently bought a GE universal remote control, SKU: 24950, that has a control code for the AOC A17W221 TV. I bought mine at Target. You can check online to see if your local store has one before you go there. It's also listed on the GE site under consumer electronics accessories with a price. Don't know if they sell it online, though.
