Question about RCA F38310 38" TV

1 Answer

Volume pegs to max. Turns itself on. Goes to menu. Intermittent

From time to time the volume control comes on the screen and goes to max. It doesn't respond to the remote, either the RCA or Comcast. Sometimes the set turns itself on and displays the menu. Response to the RCA remote, Comcast remote, or the controls on the tope of the set goes away. Pulling the power cord helps sometimes.

This is becoz your Internal Remote control response program chip needs to be replaced! You need it to get repaired at nearest service station. Or it may be due to Your keys pressed continously from remote control. Check both the causes! then decide. It will help you!

Volume stuck maxed out

the intrenal switch that controls the volume up is shorted. you need to have it replaced. the short of the switch doesn't allow any other buttons on the set to work because the micro is recieving the volume up command. it's as if there is an invisible finger pushing the volume up button. the switch is a tachtile switch which is very inexpencive to repair about $50.00 total. if you want to do the repair yourself be aware there are voltages that remain in the set that can be harmful. 50% of the time the cause of these switches shorting is improper screen cleaning. some people spray glass cleaner directly on the screen, this is bad. the cleaner drips into the set and lands on the PC board where the buttons are housed. but I've seen the other 50% also which is hummidity, dust(not anyones fault this just happens), and simple switch failure. so becareful repairing it your self

RCA F31317 Model - Very strange problems

Sounds to me like there is an issue in the control circuit, and quite possibly the micro itself. If you have issue with both the remote and buttons I am thinking a microprocessor issue since they normally enter the micro at different locations and therefore would not have a single component cause a failure across both of them (Except the micro of course) Best option may be a service center.

Problem with the volume

Two things can cause the problem your set has,one is the volume up button in the front of the set is pushed in too far and it has the momentary switch active all the time or the cleaning solution you use to clean the face of the tube has dripped down thru the lower edge of the frame into the switches creating a short and making again the switch active all the time.If the cleaning solution went down to the switches they will need to be replaced.If you are familiar with tv service you can remove the back cover and check that the button is not pushed in or it has corrosion built into.If you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and take the set for repair,if they come to your home it will be more expensive. Let Us know if you need more information.
