I disconnected the front buttons of my set. Pop off the speaker cover and note which color wires come off the buttons and then take off the lower back and you can see where it connects to a board. Generally the far right connection but trace the wires. After doing that my channels quit cycling and everything but the front buttons work.

Hi There!
Try removing the batteries from the remote. You may have had some liquid spill over it. It then becomes sticky and when one button is stuck, no other function will work. If the channels still change by itself then you have a TV problem. If it works fine, then have the remote seen to. Good Luck, JUS004

The error is likely to be from the satellite as the set model listed does not have that kind of error.

My model p52960 will not hold a channel just keeps changing


Your TV is haunted !

j/k Perhaps your remote is all wet underneath the buttons, you can remove the batteries from the remote to remove this as a possibility, If the tv comes on still and changes channels still, then you know its not the remote. You may also have defective batteries leaking acid all over the place in there. If it is the remote, you can unscrew and open up your remote and clean the circuit board button landing pads with rubbing alcohol and clean the other side of the rubber conductive pads that touch the landing pad area from the back of the button itself.

Hope for the best and Good luck

I have an 1998 rca premiere and it keeps changing channels by itself and turning itself up


You need to change the picture-size by using the TV remote and or cable remote.
On the remote look for P-Size, Zoom, Sreen size or Ratio.

Change the aspect ratio


you can set the aspect on either remote. the best thing to do is set the proper aspect on the tv remote for regular (sd) channels, and then again for hd channels. the tv should remember these aspect settings and revert to them when you switch back and forth from sd to hd. if you have satelite, there is usually another aspect on there you can change depending on the program, but i usually recommend leaving it alone. if you are on an hd channel with side bars, switch to the sd version instead of changing aspect so you dont have to keep flipping it back and forth.

Model ws-55711, remote doesn't work but I don't believe it is the remote control, can only change station up or down manually, cannot adjust volume or others manually...


If you can change channels with remote then TV is OK because it has only one infra red receiver (remote receiver) to catch remote signals.
So TV remote seems bad as it works on channel buttons only.
Here is an easy test for remote, watch remote front through any digital camera or even cellular phone camera will work and press channel button on remote, you will see blinking LED at front of remote while watching it through camera. Now press other buttons of remote and I'm sure that LED wont blink.

TV keeps changing channels


Out of 30 years in the repair field, I have seen this problem maybe 4 times. Once was a stuck button on the keypad of the tv. The other time was a second remote control with a book sitting on it and it would turn the tv on and off when someone would move something on the coffee table, another time was a bad solder connections on the microprocessor on the keypad circuit board and the last time was from a humorous neighbor in an apartment complex who thought he was funny who had an all in one remote control programmed for his neighbor's tv set.

We cannot change the channel on our new tv with the up arrow. You have to manually enter the channel number on the remote before it will work. What's the problem?


When i worked at the game store, one of our lcd tvs would not respond to buttons, only the remote, and we found there was a button lock setting on the tv that could only be changed with the remote. u didn't mention if u were trying the button on your tv or your remote. Keep in mind that i am not an expert and merely stumbled upon your question. if this doesn't help, im sure u will get another solution soon.
