    TV changes channels, volume and input all the time. Even if the TV is off, it will turn on and start changing channels, volume and input. I already changed one TV because of the same problem. The remote does not wwork either.

Make sure there is no other remote control working simultaneously or with a key pressed constantly by mistake. In my case i found the air conditioning remote control with one key being pressed by my furniture next to my bed, it was causing that erratic behavior. As soon i realized, i stopped that remote control and problem solved. I hope this works.

When you push a button on the remote, it either does nothing, or the channels start flipping all the way through from 2 to 120 and then start over. It is the same with the volume, if you hit it, it just...

If it doesnt happen when you change the channel or volume on the tv itself then i would recomend getting a new remote. You could probably get one on ebay. Most manufacture remotes will work on all of their tvs.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

TV turns itself on, keeps changing it's own channel

the problem is with the control panel of your tv...make sure your remote doesnt have any part in this...just remove and the batteries and check if the channels still are changing.....see if the onboard switch for channel changing is stuck ?..if stuck u can use homemade tools to pull it back......if your tv is within your gurantee period...just giv a call to customer care....if not u can take it to a local repair shop...there is nothin that u can urself do to make it right ...sorry....for further info contact at

Tv wont stop changing channels

ok, Sony had this issue on their early production. The problem you are having is called a leaky switch. The volume down switch on the TV is leaky. To fix this you must replace the switch. This part is called the switch block. Part number 1-473-549-21

Average cost $26
