Slow channel change

Changing channels is very slow as is volume change. Entering a two digit channel provides tha second digit channel (i.e., channel 15 gets you channel 5.) Delay is 15 seconds.

SOURCE: channnel keeps flicking like your changing channels with remote

when you say flickering??? are you saying the screen goes black and comes back on?? does the sound go out at the same time and comes bag on with the pic ? Is the sound there when this happens but is distorted. Is the pic blacked out or is it greying out with lines and twisting?? Need more info please as if its blacking out and the sound goes with it it may be going into shutdown. If the pic is getting kinda greyish with it twisting and the sound is there and ditorted then the tuner could be bad

SOURCE: TV suddenly doesn't respond to Sony remote & power button on Satellite remote.

I am having the same problem with the "initial setup" screen flashing repeatedly/ intermittently. It's not a problem with the remote. In the research I have done online, it seems as though this is a common/known problem with the Wegas that will require a service visit. Apparently the problem is a defective receiver chip. The best thread I found is at: I've seen some speculation that it is caused by windex or cleaning fluid dripping down when the screen is cleaned and corroding one of the internal components. That's not applicable in my case, since I always just clean the screen with a microfiber dusting cloth. So, I guess I will be calling a repairman and spending $$$ to fix as it is now flashing up so often as to be unwatchable. Ridiculous, I think, given that my TV is only 3 years old!!

SOURCE: mAGNAVOX mODEL 27ms3404/17 shuts down

first place to start on this chasss is with a known failure in the horizontal circuit. there is a capacitor 2455 and 2 transistors locations 7461 and 7463 that have caused a wide variety of failures. i would recommend replacing these components before proceeding as they could be the whole of the problem.

SOURCE: television turns on and off, turns up volume and changes channels

Usually sets that are "possessed" in this way have defective "tact" switches. Replace all switches and that should take care of the problem.

Is there a way to set the volume so i dont have to keep changing them all the time

hello, are you referring to the volume of the TV set when you change channels? to reiterate every time you change channels the volume also changes? in this case I do not want to speak too much but I'm almost certain that television providers are required to adhere to a volume leveling standard which would require television broadcast stations to broadcast at a certain volume level for unity. Are you watching cable television? I happen to know that not all cable television providers level they're broadcasting some do.I notice that you are using a CRT unit are you attempting to use a converter box with the unit? If you are using a converter box there may be a chance that volume level is one of the options in the menu, I can not say there is much at all you can do about this.
As an alternative your television set maybe damage and the volume maybe adjusting randomly or in a way other than intended.

Good luck and thanks

STB with Magnavox remote (need codes) - Samsung #TXK2766

Did extensive checking and finally found out that the remote for Magnavox TB100MW9 analog/digital converter is not made for volume control. The channel changing buttons are half-way operable--sometimes yes, sometimes no--and to think they call this a remote! Therefore you must keep the other TV ready remote that you have been using (tape them together probably) for volume and mostly channel change. I know what Magnavox can do with these remotes - and you know how much more Magnavox I will be buying in the future. Nada, none,---from a very disappointed, frustrated customer.

Either press menu on the Philips remote and go to autoprogram, or (if you have lost the remote), press volume - and channel - at the same time. When menu appears, use channel - to select autoprogram and volume - to select it.

Sony FD Trinitron WEGA TV Model Number KD27FS170 volume problem

I had the same problem with the volume in digital mode and found the answer here:

The actual solution is towards the bottom of the post and hard to read through, so I simplified the instructions below:

On your remote control (with tv off)
1. press Display, channel 5, Volume Up and then Power
this brings up the service mode (you will see some green text on your screen)
2. Press channel 2 to scroll through options until you see "Micro" in the upper left of your screen
(channel 2 cycles up through the options, channel 5 cycles down)
3. Press channel 1 to scroll through suboptions until you see "DIOF" appear under "Micro"
(channel 1 cycles up through the suboptions, channel 4 cycles down)
4. Press channel six until the default value (12:60) changes to 12:40
(channel 3 increases the value, channel 6 decreases the value)
5. Once the value has been changed to 12:40, press Muting and you should see red text in the upper right hand corner that says "Write"
6. Simply turn the power off and back on for the change to take effect. Your volume problems should now be fixed.

TV turns on and changes channels on its own

Keeps changing channel
Check voltage on D12 if below 4.8V then change
Changes channel or volume adjusts by itself
Check S900/1/2 on pcb H1, alternatively this could be due to failure of IC005 (CD4052BCM-FL63) on pcb A
