My television problem is the channel is keep on changing automatically non stop. How can i go to channel tunning? This problem was happened just 11 months when i bought it and i send it to the Sharp...


Hello, there are three options for such failure, the first and simplest is to try to get the remote control out of the room while the TV is off when it is in stand bye. A second possibility is the micro switches in front of the TV, you can verify that they cause failure by disconnecting the cable that connects them to the main board. If the problem stops, you will need to replace all the front switches. And now the last option, however the more expensive one, that there is a malfunction of the micro-processor circuit, from which comes the command to turn on the TV. let me know if that was helpful! Please come back to me, if you have any questions or if you need further guidance

Turn on TV and it stays on channel 6 for 1 minute.


the problem probably on the corroded channel and volume switch tri to clean the switch with a contact cleaner...you can buy it on the electrical/electronic store...also check for any corossion at the system ic on yhe main board. there are two big ic on the mainboard one is the jungle ic or chroma and the other one is the system ic which is feets are directly connected to the channel/volume switches
clean the in between of the feets/terminal of the ic.and this will solve the problem

Sounds like a tact switch problem at the front of the set. The switches are just behind the front panel buttons. Don't replace just one. Replace them all. They are not expensive and will avoid trouble later. If one switch is getting stuck internally, nothing else will work including the remote.

Same thing... suddenly will not "allow" one channel to be seen


go to tv menu, do an "autoprogram" and it will select all available channels.
You can also do an add/remove channel and manually delete the channels you know you don't have.
You can also change your tv from air to CATV (cable) On cable tv you can still get all the air channels and Fox just the numbers will be different, but you may have a better signal

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

We purchased an LCD TV very recently (2 days ago) and when we turned it on it automatically stored the channels in our area. However, after our initial excitment of the picture quality etc we discovered...


Manually type in channel 9 and then hit <enter> so the TV switches to that channel. Then go to the "setup" screen and navigate around until you find the "channel setup" section. There you will find an option to memorize channels, including the channel you are on.

The most likely problem is a stuck tact switch, if it goes up in channel number, 5, 6, 7, etc. then the channel up button is stuck, if it counts down it`s obviously the ch. down button. Problem is you have to remove the guts of the set to get at the control boards screws, you can try turning on the set and poke around the offending push button with a tooth-pick, if it stops changing channels leave it alone and use your remote from now on to change channels, if you can`t get it to stop the tact switches or the control board module will have to be swapped out, hope this helps
