Question about RCA F36676ET 36" TV

Audio Menu keeps popping up

The audio menu on our RCA keeps popping up out of nowhere, switching itself from menu to menu, and then eventually it turns itself right off. We tried changing the fuse, didn't work. Any ideas?

    Mostly the audio menu pops up. But it has changed languages, started and completed setup multiple times in a row, and the remote, we use a universal remote from dish network because the original one won't work anymore, becomes inactive. The model number for our tv is P52960. It's an RCA, as well, but no the one listed on this forum.

There are probably some failing components in the uPC control area, or with the keypad board on the TV sets front panel. It is also possible that there is a problem with the filtering of the distributed power through the circuit boards of the set, and there is some noise causing a false trigger of the function.

This type of fault can take some time for the tech to figure out, unless it is a published common fault with the particular model of set where they give a list of parts to change.

For audio from my samsung led tv to my samsung av receiver must i use an optical cable connection?

There should be setting menu on tv whereby you can select RCA or units have automatic selectivity when you use optical cables so they will gives instant output when switched on....make sure you pull off the plastic ends covers ,they only go in one way into the connection ports.if you only have RCA leads you may have to set up the output audio on tv menu.

Menu keeps popping up

If you have the guide plus feature go into the setup for it and when it asks if you have a cable box, indicate no, when it asks if you have a Vcr also indicate no. Last if it asks for the zip code enter all 9, This should rule the Guide feature out of service and you will know if it is your problem or not---it created a lot of problems in sets that had it, especially RCA or GE sets.

I hooked up the new digital box Comcast sent, but it has no audio. I disconnected the box and tried it by itself and it still has no audio. I went through the menu manually as the remote for the TV does...

I suspect you mean by disconnecting the box and running it by itself you mean you tried to run audio from your TV by itself? Somehow you need to go through the menu on your TV setup to see if the audio output isn't either turned off or muted. THere may also be a switch on the back of your TV near your output jacks which gives a option of Speaker on or off. If the speakers are on and your TV audio works I would suspect a issue with either your patchcords or the Cable Box. I am not familiar with the Comcast Digital Cable box (I have analog). But you may want to refer to the manual or to them to see if something in the menu may turn on audio for that as well.

After doing all that (whew)... and if nothing works you may have a issue with the TV amp. If nothing is hooked up to the tv (as if you were just watching "On Air" with an antenna and no stereo connected can you hear audio?

Let me know.

Kindly, DAVID

I have a Hannspree 25" flat panel LCD and I can't get the volume to work.

Most monitors/TV come with a remote. Although the remote offers full funtionality, there are usually basic controls on the set itself. Usually these buttons are present; Menu, Volume up/down, channel up/down, input, and the ever popular ON/OFF.

Depending on the type of connection you have going to your display, you may additionally need audio.

HDMI: No separate audio needed.
Component (Red, Blue, Green) Audio L/R needed.
S-Video (Round 5 pin cable) Audio L/R needed
Composite (Yellow RCA) Audio needed

However you did mention the VOLUME did not work, if it is too high, a setting in the TV's menu to select a different output. either STATIC (ONE LEVEL, the you can not adjust), or DYNAMIC, one that you can adjust.
Check the Menu options ofr your audio.

Good luck and don't forget to vote!!!!

Menus pops up

The menu button on the TV itself is bad and must be replaced ( or removed ). Alternatively the whole front button assembly can be disconnected. Just follow the wire back to the main chassis and unplug it.

No audio output

hotrodmax- If the speakers work on the tv itself,then maybe check the back where the units hook-ups are there may be a speaker switch.If you don't find one there is a good chance you have to go into the menu and change your audio setup,my 52inch runs audio this way. cooltekFeb18/08

Loss of Sound

Go into your audio menu, and make sure it is not in the SAP(Second Audio Program). Very common problem when you get good audio on the inputs but not on the RF or tuner input. Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
