I need a new control panel for my RCA F36669 TV. The channel keeps changing (always down) without anyone pushing buttons. Won't even stay on Video 1 and does the same in Menu.
I pulled the old board and it looks like the part number is 1547266C - at least that's the one I see printed on the circuit board in multiple places. Anyone know where I can get the part to plug it in?

Have you tried to unplug the TV set for a half hour or so? If not see if that helps reset the set. If that does not work, make sure that none of the front panel channels buttons on the front of the TV set is not pushed in and stuck. Or if all this is checked and the TV set still scrolls, there is a problem in the remote sensor, or the front panel board will need to be replaced. Good Luck
That's hi voltage arcing. Dangerous condition were a component has broken down and is arcing causing the power supply to 'crowbar' or go into over current protection mode. Call a TV repair pro for an estimate to see if you want to keep the set.
hold down code until it stays lit, then press tv then keep hitting channel up or channel down (either one can be used, keep pressing channel button til tv changes channels when it does press enter, or ok if enter is not there, it may take awhile maybe a few channel pushes up to 200 and up times, you use this method when you don't know the code for your tv. Hope this helps.
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.
For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
buy the radio shack "6 in 1" remote. It is absoluetly amazing. picked up all my codes, and actually uses voice commands to step you thru the process. It is the only remote I could find without spending 100 bucks or more that worked for my sylvania, and at only 15 bucko's, you can't beat it.
Customer service at RCA stated that you have to simultaneously push the menu button on the TV and the volume down button on the factory issued remote hold for three seconds and the parental should unlock and allow access again.
The easiest thing to check is if the channel up or down buttons are not pushed in too far forcing the switch to make contact all the time,the other possible reason is some of the cleaning solution or water might have gone down to the buttons and creating a short making the switch active all the time.For this reason you will need the help of a servicer to find you the parts and replace them.Let Us know if you need more information.
