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.

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.

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!

When i turn the tv. on, the volume line appears all the way to zero. if i turn the volume up, it goes up but when i release the up button the volume goes down all by itself.


It sounds like one of the volume down buttons is stuck in the activate position. The same as if you were holding the down volume button continuously. It could be either the volume down button on the TV or the remote. I would try remove the batteries of the remote then adjust the volume by the TV buttons.


If the volume doesn't go back down then the remote is the problem. In order to fix the remote you may need to take it apart. This is normally easy to do just locate any screws that may be holding the remote together. If you don't see any screws then you will need to pry the two sections apart. Separate the circuit board and rubber buttons and clean them both with some rubbing alcohol and reassemble it. If it still has the volume issue you may need to replace it.

If the problem persists with the remote deactivated then it's the volume button located on the TV. That is a little more difficult. You can try wiggling the button or some canned air (used to clean computer keyboards) to blow it clean. However it may need to be disassembled to gain access to the switches for proper cleaning.
Hope this helps.

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
