Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

1 Answer

Changes channels automatically and volume increases

We got this TV because a friend wanted a bigger/newer model a few years ago. It has worked GREAT until this afternoon when it changes channel AND increases the volume to maximum with no prompting. Also intermittantly we hear a LOUD plastic POP/cracking sound. Is this the death of the set?

I have Onida TV Model 21 inch , I accidentally enable the features of volume lock, hotel mode and channel lock and I cannot reset the same. Due to this, I cannot increase volume of telivision


MIGHT WORK IF YOU:
Turn off tv with remote, that is standby, then turn off tv with switch or unplug from wall. Wait a few minutes until led lights go off on tv. plug tv back in. try pushing vt on remote and power button on tv at same time.
If this doesn't work try contacting a local retailer, they always have a list of codes for their salesmen.

My screen is blue. says cable. i dont have cable and cant get the tv to do any chanel.


What is the make and model of the television? If it has a HDTV off air decoder then you can try this....A little trick i learned years ago. Get a paper clip and bend it into an "L" position and then insert that into the very center of where the cable goes into and then scan for off air channels. You will know if this is working when it says it found "x" amount of channels as it is scanning thru the channels. Give that a try and see if that at least gives you a picture... IF that works then you can get off air signal HDTV for FREE. And you might want to invest in a HDTV OFF AIR ANTENNA.. For free tv. Let me know how that works for you and then we can go from there. Good luck and have a great afternoon. SINCERELY HDTV GURU JAY

I have a 40 inch Samsung TV which I've had about 3 years (sorry I Don't have the model number handy). I have DirectTV and an HD-DVR. The HD Channels were great up until about a few weeks ago. Now sometimes...


If your menus on the TV and other inputs look good then it is probably a resolution setting on your Directv box that needs to be changed. To get HD it needs to be set at 720p or 1080i. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks....

The buttons on top of mt tv go crazy the flip channels automatically and turn volume up and down automatically


I have had this problem on this same model (F32650) and I discovered that what is happening is that dust and debris are causing the microswitches in the panel to short, therefore the channel starts changing and wont stop or the volume changes etc...
Get some electronic switch cleaner and (with the power off of course!) spray into the crevaces around each button and press each button a few times and then power the unit back on and it should be fine.

Tv channel will not change and volume keeps increasing without to


Most likely you have a defecvtive volume up switch. Unsolder it from the board, and see if problem goes away. Very common problem. Since only one function can work at a time, none of the others will work until you "release" that switch
