Question about Televison & Video

Sound level goes to high by itself.

Sound level goes up to highest level by itself. Using the remote or the panel buttons we can turn it down but then it immediately run right back up. Tried holding the button down but after setting at a comfortable level it runs right back up while holding the button. Can this be fixed?

    An expert wanted the make and model with the sound problem I am having on my GE 35GT695 TV. The sound always runs back up to loudest no matter where we set it via remote or panel buttons.

    I will accept your solution as soon as I can try it out. I live in a remote sort of area in Big Hawaii (we do have cable) and will have to travel into town to get a new remote. If this works, your it and I will log back on to accept.

    Yes, it still happens when we removed the batteries from the remote. But....inadvertently we followed a previous post here. We had unplugged the TV to plug in another. Today in cleaning the panel buttons and check it out again we plugged it back in and we hit the remote from the other TV and it turned our GE on. Now it seems to be working fine and with the RCA remote. Go figure. Now I have to figure out who to give credite for on this one.

Step 1:
Check the owner's manual before consulting other sources. Often, the possible problems are laid out right there, along with a troubleshooting guide.
Step 2:
See if the television manufacturer has a Web site with troubleshooting tips or FAQs.
Step 3:
Check all the connections - AC plug into the wall, cable television connection, input and output cables to other machines such as VCRs. Unplug or disconnect them, then plug them in again.
Step 4:
Look in the fuse/circuit box to see if the switch for the television's room is flipped, meaning that a fuse blew. If it did, flip the switch back to reset the fuse.
Step 5:
Check the remote control and replace its batteries if necessary.
Step 6:
Adjust the television controls, following advice in the manual. Incorrectly set controls can cause problems like sound but no picture and picture but no sound.
Step 7:
Test the setup of the cable television or VCR hookups by referring to their manuals. If you can identify which item is causing the problem, you can call the company's customer service number and talk with a technician.
Step 8:
Clean the parts of the television that are visible, but don't dig into openings. Make sure the television is unplugged from the outlet when you clean it.
Step 9:
Double-check the antenna if you have one. Replacing it or pointing it in a different direction may help solve the problem.
Step 10:
Take the television for professional service, if necessary. It's better than nullifying the warrantee or ruining the machine by attempting repairs yourself.

HI,

Here are few troubleshooting steps you can try:

ONE: Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

TWO: The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

If this does not solve your problem then the problem is with the circuits inside your TV therefore you will need a technician to fix this problem.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

TV sound off and on


If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service. Also look for any jammed buttons on remote.

Remove the TV from the power for a few minutes, and then power on, then check the volume, effectively you have reset the set. If it still will not work, check the manual for any sleep settings etc, and work through the setup again for the channels. Now if none of that works, and it isn't a remote control issue? Then unfortunately you indeed have a problem with the set and it will need to be serviced. it will most likely be a microprocessor and ambient background noise sensor or the like, this will have to be replaced. To this end get a "Quote" from a certified repairer, and go from there?

The volume for my TV keeps turning up (to the highest leve) by itself and I cannot stop it. what should I do?


Make sure the Volume Button on the remote control or TV itself is not stuck down.

These problems are usually that simple to solve, if that does not work, then I can think of no other reason for this to happen... unless someone is toying with you and doing it with another remote (not Likely)

Sound control or lack thereof


You have a corruped EEprom. A very common problem for this TV! See a tech...there are six different EEproms for this TV and he will have to read IC001 and IC 1001 to find the right EEprom!

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.

Try turning off the converter box when using the DVD player. The zenith have a second sound control on the converter box remote thus you may have to adjust the sound on the tv remote because you are using the dvr. I set the zenith sound level at the highest level and use on the tv remote only to adjust sound. This eliminated a hiss that the sound control on the converter box was causing.

Sound level unstable


Hi there!
You may have a button stuck either on the remote or on the TV itself. If this does not solve the problem, you may have to refer to a service technician. The IF Amp or the sound stage may be at fault. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004
