It's most likely the remote. Try opening the remote (I know it's hard, and could be hard to put back together). The underside of the rubber buttons will need to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a Q- tip. You will notice some of the black carbon rub off onto the Q-tip (That's Okay). Then dip the Q-tip in alcohol and run it over the gold or silver areas that the rubber buttons touch to change the channels (and all the other places they touch too)Then wipe all those areas dry with another Q-tip, until no more carbon black comes off, and there is no moisture in the button side of the board. It was probably caused by an oil leak from one or more of the buttons. then reassemble OR try a cheap universal remote.

Have a Sceptre 32" TV that changes sources all by itself, how do I fix it?


Model Number?

It may have a setting to automatically switch to a new source. Check and see if that is off. Also, power down your other connected devices completely, as some will occasionally "ping" the TV to make it's still connected while in sleep/idle mode. The Nintendo Switch is especially bad at that.

Use the Yellow/Red/White cable of the Wii and connect to the Video in on the back or left side of the TV, matching the colors. Turn on the Wii. On the remote or the right side of the screen press the "Source" button until you get to that input. Use the same source button to get back to TV.

New Sceptre 37" LCD TV does not turn on


I just got a 42" komodo by Sceptre, same problem, except "SCEPTRE" showed on the screen. I was sent a USB key program to insert in the service slot in the back and it reflashes the bios. This is old news for you but maybe new for someone?
