Panasonic-36" Pana Black Tube - channels are continuely changing
I accidently spilled water on the buttons on the front of the TV. There doesn't seem to be a problem with the power button. But if I put the Power Button on; the channels are continuely changing automatically. How can I get it to stop so I can set it on channel 3.

I would suggest to let the water dry or you can use a hair dryer to blow air through the buttons, you could also open the back cover to blow air towards the front panel to dry it faster.
The spilled water is acting as a conductor, that is why the channels are changing on their own.

Was the tv on when water spilled on it? Or on standby? I would guess it does not matter now. I do not like to even try to repair a tv with water damage...as the problem can go almost any where. Really and truly your best fix for headaches is to replace your tv. Some may argue this but I know best.
To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.
If you are connecting the dish receiver to the standard antenna jack (F connector) on the TV, then the TV must be in TV mode and tuned to channel 3. If you accidently change to another channel then you will get the "no signal" message. If this is the case then simply put the TV back on channel 3. If you are using the RCA jacks (red, white yellow) to connect the dish receiver to the TV, then the TV must be in the VIDEO mode to work properly. If you accidently put the TV in the TV mode, you will get the "no signal" message. If this is the case then simply press the TV/VIDEO button.
Usually, this means that something has spilled into the front of the set and has contaminated the pushbuttons. If one of the channel pushbuttons has fluid in it, the set will just sit there searching for channels and will not respond to any other commands. The computer thinks you are pushing the channel button and responds accordingly. When you push another button the computer does nothing because it thinks that you are pressing 2 buttons at the same time. The board should be cleaned and any contaminated pushbuttons replaced by a qualified tech.
