Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV
Turned on my 36" toshiba the other day and the volume went to max, only button that works on set or remote is the channel down button. i unplugged it and took out batteries from remote overnight. When i plug back in set goes on by itself at max volume and on the same channel everytime. LOL, help me please, im too poor to pay a tech to fix my set
The intrenal switch that controls the volume up is shorted. you need to have it replaced. the short of the switch doesn't allow any other buttons on the set to work because the micro is recieving the volume up command. it's as if there is an invisible finger pushing the volume up button. the switch is a tachtile switch which is very inexpencive to repair about $50.00 total. if you want to do the repair yourself be aware there are voltages that remain in the set that can be harmful. 50% of the time the cause of these switches shorting is improper screen cleaning. some people spray glass cleaner directly on the screen, this is bad. the cleaner drips into the set and lands on the PC board where the buttons are housed. but I've seen the other 50% also which is hummidity, dust(not anyones fault this just happens), and simple switch failure. so becareful repairing it your self
