Re: tv starts scrolling through functions

There is probably random noise or a failure of some type with the uPC area of the set that deals with the control. It is also possible that there is a fault with the control panel.

This is not going to be easy to service. There can be a lot involved. The first thing the tech will check is for the quality of the power supply distribution in the set and especialy to the uPC and control areas. If this is okay, then he will have to follow up for troubleshooting the uPC control area.

This type of repair will be time consuming and most likely very costly. You can get an estimate, but for myself I would be shopping for a new TV set because of the loss if time and the cost of the parts for a CRT set. And... I am capable myself to fix this!

7) Use the Down Arrow on the remote or Channel - button on the front of the TV to select SKIPPED.

8) Press the Right Arrow on the remote or Volume + on the front of the TV to select OFF.

9) When finished press Exit on the remote or press the power button on the TV and then power the TV back on.

LXI TV-menu options keep scrolling. How do we stop this?

I believe pressing the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons at the same time is what puts the set into demo mode. (It might be CHAN UP and CHAN DOWN at the same - been so long I'm not sure, but I think it's the volume buttons.)

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

Double check that the Demonstration in the menu is not set to on. This will cause it to keep scrolling thru.....

No Remote - Need to access Menu

We had the same problem - this worked for us:

1. Unplug TV
2. Press Channel up and Volume up at same time, while plugging TV back in (two person job - it will pull up a service screen)
3. Press Channel up and Chanel down at same time. (Access to menu screen)
4. Use Volume up and Volume down to switch between menu options. We finally found the EZ set up screen.

Somehow in the process we muted the TV and are now working on getting the sound back. :)
Good luck to you!

I had the same problem with a Sylvania SRT2227S. I kept trying to fix it using the remote but after reading your posting I pressed the Volume (down) button, which cycled through the same menus you mentioned. Then I pressed the Power button on the TV and that fixed it.

The problem started for me when pressed PIP, CC, and Guide buttons on a Philips universal remote control. My TV does not support these functions and it seems to put it in this "service mode". Now I can fix it by pressing Volume (down) or Menu then the Power button on the TV (do not use the remote as it is useless when the TV is in this mode). I hope this works for you too.
