TV Changing Channels on It's Own

I have a 32" LCD TV from LG (Model # 32LC7D) It just started to change channels continueousley whenever you try to change the channel. Normally you would think that this would be control module problem but there are other wierd things going on. If I stand next to the TV with my hand gently resting on the back, it will correct the problem. But only as long as my hand is there. For some reason I think it has something to do with static electricity or a ground loop problem created by the new air purifier I bought 2 days ago. It is a Honeywell (Model # HFD-120-Q) that cleans the air by charging the filters with static electricity. Both items were connected to the same outlet. I have disconnected them but the problem persists. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Right, that is actually the first thing I did. Since I posted the above problem, I have moved the TV to a different location outside of my entertainment center onto a shelf and the problem is gone. It is still plugged into the same outlet and is connected in exactley the same way to all devices. (I did check all connections before it was moved, so that was not the problem.) I have been doing alot of research on this model and it appears that alot of these all have the same sort of problems with the tuning module in the TV.

    I have the exact same problem. the tv keeps changing channels. I actually threw out the remote after changing batteries. I bought a universal remote and cant get that to work at all.

All helpful, but not a solution. Have the same, or similar problem - when the tv (32LC7D LG) is turned on, after about a minute and a half it starts changing channels like the channel down key is depressed. During this time, It will not take commands for the remote nor the side control. Every time I unplug the tv, it does this at irregular intervals and also stops abruptly after a long period of time, making it hard to tell what really is the problem.

I removed the side, key tact switch - a solution saw for a Samsung for what seems to be now a stuck key - that wasn't the problem. It then wires to the I/r, like your situation holding the channel up button will a lot me to turn the set off and take remote assume some control like power off yet the changing is so irregular and inconstant that 'fixing' the opposing key is not an option. It then plugs into the bottom of the mainboard, I took the mb casing off, everything "looks" fine but I'm not sure what to test and what to look for. There's so little in the way of literature and tech manuals, tutorials, diy videos to follow.

The channel down button just became volume down and the tv turns on by itself. Right now I am leaning toward whether it would be worth it to replace the main board or if there might be other problems (tech manuals would be nice for starters).

Are you changing channels with the remote? Try taking the battery out of the remote, its buttons might just be getting stuck? If, when changing the channel by hand, it persists, then it is an electrical problem, and you should contact LG to see about getting your unit replaced.

My LG 32LC7D was also changing channels on its own. I took the batteries out of all of my remotes (not a solution).

Then I tried wiggling the side buttons to see if they were stuck (not a solution).

Then I opened up my TV and disconnected the side button wiring from the main part of the circuitry (not a solution).

Then I disconnected the small circuit board connected to the side buttons to see if that part was the culprit (not a solution).

That leaves the problem in the main circuit boards, which I had no tools to test/check. I put my TV back together and came up with the following solution.

Take a piece of duct tape and a common scrabble piece "E". Use those two items to keep the channel button pressed in to counter the channel changing.

So with a piece of duct tape and a scrabble piece my TV now works like new.

I can't program my tv chanel , some of the channerll are missed tv LG flat panel

A simple suggestion that may work--tried to direct enter a channel like 21 enter to see if it goes there? If it does you should be able to go into menu and ADD it to the up/down memory of channels, takes time but if works better than nothing. (can also remove channels in same way---shopping and golf channels are first ones I always delete.

Have you unplugged the LG TV, waited about 2 minutes, and plugged back in to try and reset the TV?
After you reset the TV, try using the key pad on the TV first before you use the LG remote.

LG 32LC7D will not display digital channels. Took it to have it repaired, was told the main board needed replacing. Over $350 including parts and labor. Declined repair. Came home, hooked up in my 2nd...

Most likely if the digital channels are dropping off then you might just have to replace the tuner. The tuner on this TV is available separately as part number EBL32758001. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Channel keeps changing

It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

Rolling channels and bad sound on one channel

One channel with bad sound is most likely the station/cable or satellite provider at fault. With the channels changing on thier own look for a stuck button on the TV set such as the channel up or down. You might try unplugging the TV for 2 minutes and then trying to see if resetting fixes it.
