FLM-1911 Won't change channels with the remote up/down bttn

I have the same problem. Had the problem when I bought the set but fixed it with some odd key combination at the TV. However I recently ran the channel search again and this reset the remote to cause the problem again. I can't remember what I did the first time to fix this. Frustrating.

SOURCE: my remote control for my polaroid tv wont change channels.

You may be able to program your cable box remote to control your TV in addition to your cable box. When they initially set up your cable box they probably left a pamphlet giving you instructions on how to program your remote. I'm not sure why you can't change the TV channels manually but this may give you a work-around.

SOURCE: Channel Up/Down button quit working on the remote control

I had the same problem. You need to go into SETUP > CHANNEL > SKIP and select NO for every channel with a signal. A few months after we purchased the TV it defaulted to this (software glitch). We had lived with it for months before figuring this out. There is no easy way to reset these that I know of. I literally had to go to each channel and then change "skip" to "no." JM

SOURCE: LCD tv powers on, no picture with sound

The problem is not with the inverter circuit. If that was the problem, you would not see the polaroid screen either. The problem is within the video path of the set. This is not a homeowner repair as the ICs involved here are surface mounted and require specialized equipment to replace. You should request an estimate from a local servicer ($50 or so) and report the results here. We can then guide you through the actual replacement of the correct board(s).

Please keep us posted,

Dan

FLM-373B will not change channel?


if no channel up or down with front buttons OR remote:

either a glitch has happened (unplug set and or box--wait and plug back to see if both will boot up)

The feature may have been grayed out or disabled--look in setup to see if any options there are grayed out (not available)

If set is locked on one channel a reboot may or may not cure the issue.

Try to direct enter a channel with the remote like 03 enter and see if it goes there.

Keep in mind all sets (and this one) have a Eprom that controls this--memory of channels and it could be bad.

let know what you find.

Just bought an RCL3210 TV. The odd thing is that the Channel up/down key on the remote control does not change the channel. Also, the up/down channel key on the TV itself also does not respond. When you...


You need to find how to CLEAR the auto channel settings. Sounds like the TV is set to SKIP all channels. Look for a MENU and then look for an AUTO setting that will walk through all channels and set those where you have reception as the "list" that the remote and the Up/Down buttons on the tv will choose.
PS: GREAT writeup on your problem and the things you have tried.

Auto Channel Search places all channels in skip mode causing channel changes to made by number input instead of up/down button. Having to manually turn "Skip" off on each channel individually.


check the agc line from the tuner is functioning properly, if the agc signal , is not reaching the processor it will register that channel as being inactive and lock it out, there is not much circuit to contend with so a multimeter should do the trick to trace down the fault, you should find AGC marked on the board where the tuner modual is mounted.. i suggest obtaining a service manual to do the job good luck

Channel search: skips chanels


If you have a cable box connected, it's synch circuits are bad. If your TV has a selection for HRC/ IRC make sure you know which one cable company is using .

You need to go into the menu and program the tv. You will find "auto program" somewhere in the menu. Try in the setup part of the menu or install area.

Lost signal


well overall the tv isn't too reliable but perhaps you have the input on comp(vga) if you do that it says no signal and shuts off, try changing the channel by click either the channel up or down button, or just press the input button.
that would be the easy fix, or your tv is just broken like so many others, myself included
