Question about ViewSonic N3251w 32 in. LCD HDTV
I was playing with my ps3 when out of nowhere the sound started to go up until it reached max. Then i tried lowering it with the remote and still went up. I took the batteries out of the remote to check if it was a bad contact in the remote and it would still do the same thing. I turned it off and would not come back on. I unplugged it and replugged it. it came back on but started that volume frenzy again. Where should I start looking?
The button board or the IR board in the TV. A stuck button can cause some strange behavior. Typically, the TV has 3 control lines: POWER BUTTON, FUNCTION BUTTONS, IR (Remote). Try disconnecting the button board, it should have a connector right on the board. If that fixes it, you can leave it that way or try to find a replacement board (not sure where you should look). If it's the IR board and the button board is daisy-chained through it, you will need to either replace it or repair it. Most often the little receiver is bad when there is a problem with this type of board. You may be able to find a Receiver IC, but just know that it has to match the TV. I hope this was helpful and points you toward your destination. Best wishes.
