Lynn, common problem on your chassis, problem is the tact switches are no longer available, (I checked and the remote is NLA also), the good news is any tv shop probably has some of these in their "boneyard", call up some of your local shops and tell them model # and what your problem is I`m sure one of them will have a few control boards kicking around, cheap fix, hope this answers your question, Happy Holidays, BMW Rider

Why does the volume on my Magnavox TV immmediately go to 0 as soon as I turn it on, and then after I turn it up and take my hand off the volume button?


Hello,
it would appear Volume down button is either shorted or something is constantly pushing on it forcing the volume to go down. You could try to press on the down button and see if it feels like it pushes back a little bit. The most common thing is that it gets sticky from grimy, sticky fingers, try to un-stick it using some alcohol on a cotton swab. Other that the only way to fix this is to take the tv apart and figure out the button problem that way!
Good Luck!

Samsung 40 hd tv the vol will not come down from 100 percent . I try to turn the vol down and it will not turn down. what can I do. tks mike


I presume that the volume will not turn down from either the remote control or the volume buttons on the side of the tv. If the volume down button works on the side of the tv then the remote control is suspect to be faulty. If neither remote or tv volume buttons work then check whether the channel buttons work on the tv (not remote). If none of these work then check the input connection from the buttons /infra red reciver to the main pcb. This is a push on cable connector. As a point, also check that the volume up button on the tv is not stuck in, and feels the same as the other buttons when pressed.

Have Sharp 13" tv about a year old. Only arrow on remote that works is volume up. Volume down and channel arrows do not. Power and punch in channel numbers do work


If you can get the remote apart try cleaning the contacts on the inside of the touchpad and on the circuit board with alcohol and cotton swabs.If this doesn't work you will need a new remote.I assume the buttons on the TV itself work.

I need to re tune my samsung tv but have no remote any ideas?


you can always use the button on your Tv itself.

ie menu = Menu
Channel up/down = take you up and down
volume = goes left and right.

follow these steps

Menu,
channel down button to CHANNEL
press the volume button along
channel down button to AUTO STORE
press the volume button to Start the scan.

right now you have your telly tuned in. What you could do it get an old sky remote off a friend/ neighbour. or buy from argos etc ( a lot cheaper then getting a replacement samsung one)

press the following buttons on the sky remote to program it to work with your samsung tv.

TV,
RED + SELECT
TV.
0060

try the volume if this works press SELECT to save this code if it doesnt press Tv then try the volume again. repeat this step until the volume works your telly. once it doest dont forget to press the SELECT button to save.

Now you will be able to change your volume use the number keys. if you also press the HELP button on the sky remote this will also change your AV / SOURCE I hope this post helps you out. When it does please leave a thumbs up for me Please

Mitsubishi ws65711-Volume bar always displays/remote not working


Just solved my problem. Found out that the down volume button must have been sticking. Tapped on it a number of times and finally the volume bar went off and then the up volume worked fine. Looks like the down volume button on front panel is intermittently getting stuck. This happened last year but went away before I could figure it out. Maybe going to try and blow some compressed air in button socket.

Zenith dvd/vcr mod #6711R1N211C. Need to prog the volume button.


In my manual, to control a sony TV.. the code is number 8 or number 9.

You will hold down TV POWER, hit 8 then release TV POWER.
If that doesn't work, try number 9. Once the batteries are removed, it resets the code, so write it down. It will also over ride your old codes once you input the new one.

Note: Depending on your TV, some or all buttons may not function on the TV, even after entering the correct manufacturer code.


I looked for the section on Stereo, but all I found was the above.
Hope this helps.

Sony 36' TV Volume Goes up on own/Stuck on Video 2


There's a setting in the menu. I think it's called "smart audio". It's supposed to adjust the volume automatically for commercials. But I don't think it works that well. Give that a try.
