You will have to have the "volume ^ (up)" momentary contact switch replaced and any other switches which may have gotten
wet. The switch is making contact, due to corrosion caused by
the moisture, making the volume up feature work when it shouldn't. This is a common problem with hotel/motel sets
(any brand) due to over spraying of glass cleaner by house-
keepers. If the volume up switch is physically removed from the
chassis the set's other functions should work unless other swithes are also damaged.

My philips srp5107wm/17 only changes the volume on my tv no matter what device i have it set on


The Philips remote is set to "push trough" the volume/mute to the TV for devices that typically don't have a volume function. Older versions of Philips remote used to allow you to select the device to push volume to, but for some reason this is no longer available (or at least I haven't found out how to). So here is the solution I used.

Teach (learning function) the remote to use whatever device you like for volume/mute.

1, Press the button for the device you would like to change
2. Hold down "learn" and the button you want to teach ex. "volume up" until the red light comes on
3. Place the original remote of the device you would like to change the volume on 5-10 cm away from your Philips remote and press "volume up" for this example
4. Repeat these steps for the "volume down" and "mute" buttons
5. Repeat these steps for other devices you would like to "push through" volume/mute to a device other than TV

Hope this helps others. I did find that some devices like SAT may not allow you to change the volume/mute, but otherwise this workaround does the trick.

The volume stays on high. I can lower it but, after I release the button the volume goes back to high.


I have the same problem with KV-20-FV-300. My remote stopped working and when I adjusted the volume manually, it goes to high and when it adjust it back down, it goes high again. I'm able to get the sound to stabilize by getting the volume to where I want it, and then pushing the up and down volume buttons at the same time. I'm still searching for a permanant solution though.

TV Volume goes up by itself and remote wont work


Hi,

There are 2 reasons that this is happening in respect to the problem commencing after your daughter has cleaned the tv. Either your daughter has sprayed the volume button with cleaner and fluid has got into the the graphite pad under the button and conducting as though the button is being pressed continuously..or she has put too much pressure on the button if it is a metallic plate contact switch.One way to find out is by pressing the down volume button.does it it click ? if it does.try the up volume..If that doesnt click the problem is the metallic plate is dented in making contact hence a new switch. Another cause ive seen is cleaning the remote control with cleaner and fluid has got into the remote and it sends signals to the tv all the time..If the remote control is hidden under a cushion and the problem stops, then the remote control is at fault and needs drying out..Hope this helps :)

Ilo tv remote only displays menu


Check all the buttons on the TV and see if they all feel the same. Some times a stuck button can cause the problem

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.

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.
