Help Finding Replacement Parts

I believe that the power/channel/volume control panel on my TV has gone bad. If I press VERY hard on the buttons, they'll work. The TV powers on and off by itself and the channels change by themselves. Replacement seems pretty straightforward, but I can't figure out what the part number is for the button cluster. Can anyone help determine the part number and a source for the part? The numbers on the button cluster are: 1515631E, but I haven't had any luck locating anything close on the web. Any help would be greatly appreciated. -Matt

Re: Help Finding Replacement Parts

I had the exact same problem with the channel/volume autoshifting. I found a electronic firm that would rebuilt the board for $185.00 plus shipping-----screw that. I cut the plastic hold down nubs on the channel/volume buttons itself and disassembled the contact. Inside the button was a copper metal disc showing arc tracks and "carbon scoring" on the underside. I just removed the button guts and now use the remote for channel and volume adjustments. So far the power button still works for me. I may try buffing and cleaning the disc and contacts later, but what the hey, I'd rather surf with the remote from the couch.

How do I override the password on a Toshiba cx32f60 tv? All channels above 13 are blocked. I want to unblock all of them. The remote is a Toshiba ct-9809.

Disconnect the AC power for at least one minute to reset the clock running inside the circuit.
Adjust Volume to Minimum using the Volume Down button on the front panel of the TV.
Press and Hold the Volume Down button on the front panel of the TV and the "Zero" button on the remote control at the same time, holding them down for at least 10 seconds.
The user menu will appear with the V-Chip cursor blinking.
Press ENTER key on the remote control and the NEW PASSWORD menu will appear.
Enter your new password. OK.

Orion TVD2710. Lost remote, can't change signal input

I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv. I hope this helps! -Der Strom

How can I place tv on channel 3 with out remote?

Near the switch ON/OFF button there must others that control the volume and the channels. Usually the channel switching buttons have an arrow pointing Up and another pointing down. The two button may be the up end and down end of a bigger button. That is the general idea. But you should examine the TV around the control buttons looking foe some inscriptions that will help you identify which is which.

Turn your TV on. Identify the volume control buttons.

By pressing on the button (or the button end) with an UpArrow you ascend the channels. Pressing the button with the down arrow decreases the channel number.

How do I tune TV channels on my Sharp CX48G4 TV without a remote control? There is no tuning / settings panel on the TV itself which is very strange.

press the preset button on the front panel once then (TV should be on) the on the screen there should be words the likes of (Auto VHF 1 60.00mhz) now the Auto stands for auto tuning VHF stands for its frequency where its going to search the 1 stands for the channel where its going to start with 60.00mghz stands for the lowest signal to which its going to start now that you have understood all that just press the volume up button then it will automaticly locate all your working channels leave till it stops for when does it will start from channel 1 to which I believe that you be able to see the channel working so press the up button on the channel button to check the rest of your channels hope this will solve your problem!

Can't select front input without remote

I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.
