Re: TV keeps shutting off and changing channels
Hide all your remote controlls and put some tape over the front cover of the tv where you think the remote control reciever may be , if this fixes it then it means something is amiss with a rogue remote , most likely batterys..could even be sunlight ??

I had same problem with no steam... ready to throw in the dumpster! I tried to it take apart. (kind of hard) still ready to throw it! Then I thought about CLR! I put about 1/2 cup in, turned on and let set for about 20 to 30 minutes. I really did not think this would work but... Amazing! I actually got STEAM!!!!!! Next I dumped out what was left, put in distilled water and ran for another 30 minutes on high. Will use CLR again before final clean out and 2 full tanks of distilled water before I use again.
Don't throw it away just yet. It's still under warranty so returning it would be far better than throwing it away ;)
As you can tune the cable channels OK, I suspect there is a problem with the reception from the antenna and the signal strength is too low. Please can you answer the following simple questions so that I can help you to solve this problem
1. What antenna are you using - indoor/rabbit ears or outdoor/roof antenna? 2. Do you have a good reception on another TV connected to the same antenna ?
If you are using an indoor antenna, try moving the TV to another location to see if you can get a better reception.
Please let me know the answers to the above questions. I will then be able to assist you further.
Under the channel setup menu there should be a way to change the input type of the channel. When you go to edit a channel look for this setting. If all your channels are grainy this is probably the solution also.
1ST) see if the power is being turned off on the machine from the power source.Do you have a time screen? A screen that tells the time, is it blinking ? You could have a loose connection to the AC plug. Does the machine have a "back up" memory battery ?
2nd) Sound on only 2 channels thru VCR is a circuit problem.
I found the source of my hum. I have Direct TV HD. I found that going into the menu settings (Direct tv HD Receiver) /Audio/Sound Effects and turning that option off, I was able to rid myself of the annoying hum. The option has something to do with keeping the audio settings from channel to channel, while it is changing you hear dead air except for the hum. Nice and quit now. Love this receiver!
