Typically this happens if the button on the remote is stuck due to gunk or damage. Is there a possibility that something spilled on it or it was sat on? Use a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to clean around the button to see if that frees it up. I'm assuming this only happens when there are batteries in the remote based on your question. If this is so, you've already isolated the issue as being with your remote. Check the hardware as I recommended. If this happens when there are no batteries in the remote you should check for any other remotes nearby. If you have remotes from the same manufacturer (e.g. Samsung tv + Samsung Blu-ray player) it's a possibility that the other remote is actively being pressed somehow. Make sure there are no other remotes from the same manufacturere around.

SOURCE: after programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!

you need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.

Won't stay on channel. keeps reverting back to next lower channel.


Remove the batteries from the remote and see if the problem goes away, if so the remote has a bad button, that can possibly be fixed by cleaning it. Try these links:

Lg plasma menu screen wont go away


The exit button on the remote may not be working or some other button on the remote is jammed. Try removing the battery of the remote and switch off the TV manually and the input power. Wait for a few minutes and then switch on the TV manually. The try changing the menu from the TV control panel. If nothing works, this is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

Menu keeps popping up and then goes away


You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

My Hisense lcd is lock.


This is how I got mine to work after weeks of struggling just trying to find a new remote (hisense is really hard to contact....).
1) Turn the TV ON. unplug the tv while still ON 2) hold down the "menu" button on the side of the TV and plug it back in. keep holding it down. the TV should turn on with the menu popping up. use the Vol <> keys and Channel <> keys to navigate the menu. go to the Vchip menu, and play around. I'm not sure what ultimately worked, but i changed the Vchip password to 1111, turned the reset menu to "on" and played around with the ratings settings (turning most of them to "u"s etc).
I went through this process several times and finally, the black background behind the menu turned to static. I played around with the channels, and the TV was unlocked. I turned the TV off, and then on again, and the channels showed up normally (no static). and it was no longer locked. I had to do the unplug thing several times, and was getting really frustrated looking for an "unlock code" in the manual (it just says press the button on the remote. so it was not really helpful).
But really, once you can just get to that menu you've made some progress, and just keep playing around with it until something works.
Best of luck!!

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.
