Question about RCA F36650 36" TV
The channels on the TV tuner started to change all by themselves. First it was occasionally but now it is all the time. While this is going on, no other button on the top of the TV will work. Most of the time, you have to turn the TV off using the remote only. If you are lucky enough to get the menu to come one, you find it starts switching down the menu list by itself, as well. It is as if you are holding down the channel button constantly. I even tried to have only channel 3 set in (since we have a cable box) but found it also switches to the various other ports as well. I've tried unplugging the TV, I've removed the remote batteries, I even tried the last resorted "beating" on the TV. Still the channels change away.
Simply pop off the top channel selector/power pad and free the buttons. It worked like a champ!

The problems due to the microprocessor on the remote reciever present inside the tv .i think the remote is normal working. as the only problem with your iinfra red reciever microprocessor.microcontroler circuit. Replace the IC to solve this. Check electrolytic capacitor coupled to the memory block of the micro processor. Contact service if you are not well verse doing all this rectification works. it is off high risk and caution
thank you !

With further investigation, I found that the problem was actually with the channel selector button pad on top of the TV. This is easily removed and I found that this pad was a sealed single unit. But by disabling the suspected "stuck" channel down button (using my trusty pocket knife), this stopped the channels from changing on their own. Now I can still use the menu button along with the 'up" channel selector button when I need to change any menu items and the remote still works fine. It would be best to replace the entire button pad but I am told that RCA has discontinued supplying any replacement parts for this model. That is a rotten deal since this TV is only 3 years old. It looks like this will be the LAST RCA I ever buy. In any case...it works fine for now.
