TELEVISION HAS MIND OF ITS OWN

TELEVISION CHANGES CHANNELS AND CUTS OFF AND ON BY ITSELF

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Feb 02, 2008

    I found several posts in other sites that this problem is caused by the chip in the TV, bad ground or something. No recall offered by RCA too expensive to fix. You can usually by a comparable tv for the cost or repair. Nop one wants to work on tube sets these days.

It's possessed just like mine! ;) So I have no idea besides a basic check:

Does the tv do this even when you take the batteries out of the remote, and block the sensor in the tv with tape or something to make sure its not someones remote doing it?

My TV changes channels or source by itself. I


This may or may not be your solution.

The tact switches (push buttons) mounted on the circuit board may need to be replaced (old, worn, sticking). These are the buttons that are pressed in when you use the controls on the television set (volume, menu, channels etc.). Try removing all of these switches (don't remove the remote sensor). Don't remove just the channel switches.

If you have a remote than you don't 'have' to replace them, only if you want to control the tv from the set itself. After you remove them see if you have the same issue. If so you may need a new control IC chip.

A repair shop will charge about $75 to replace the buttons. If you have the tools and knowledge than feel free to do it yourself. To remove mine, I just used pliers and was careful. However to replace them you will need a soldering iron.

MENU SCREEN POPS UP, TV CHANGES CHANNELS, TURNS SOUND DOWN


Yes. Its probably a stuck button on the TV's front panel. Try pushing or wiggling each button on the panel. It could be the channel up/down buttons or volume up/down, menu, etc.

When there is a button that is making slight contact, it keeps the microprocessor busy attending to the command its erroneously receiving from the offending button and may not allow other functions to work when this occurs.

It doesn't matter which button is stuck, any of the symptoms you describe can happen.

TV Picture cuts off.


The blue screen means that you have lost signal. If the set don't have signal for so long it turns itself off. "power saver feature" Check all connections or replace cables, If that don't work the signal board may be going bad.
