Panasonic-36" Pana Black Tube - channels are continuely changing

Hi,

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.

Good Luck.

You have to disassemble the TV to take this board out, and must clean well. Never use water for cleaning. Use absolute alcohol or medical quality turpentine.

Spill a small amount of warm water and let it run down to wash out the pickle juice. Of course do this without the power cord connected. Let the tv dry long enough to be sure the water has evaporated before re applying power. Just might work.

Water got into my Xbox 360 by the fan can I fix it


Let it dry out give it a day or two before plugging it in put it in front of a fan or heater to dry out good. Was the Xbox plugged in when it got the water on it? Once its dryed out you can try plugging it in.If it doesn't power up you probably fried the power supply. But if it was like a glass of water got spilled and some splashed near fan it probably will work. I think there are even some fuses in side the Xbox but you should leave that to a professional. If it doesn't come on once its dryed out

My Sanyo AVM-3651g 36" TV keeps showing the


Hello,
On the remote that came with your TV, press the Display button, which is directly below the Volume Up button. Pressing it once displays the channel number and time, pressing it twice displays the channel number continuously, you must have accidently pressed the Display button twice. Just press it once more to remove the display.

Not familiar with your model, but the problem sounds generic. I am guessing your set is hooked to a cable tv box, and that is where you need to change channels. I also guess that when you changed channels on your TV you probably moved from channel 3 to either channel 2 or 4 and the cable tv box is not sending to those channels so you lose picture and sound. Now, more guessing, you try to put the channel back to 3 on your TV, but still nothing happens. OK, if close so far, there are a couple of things to try. First, be really sure you are actually going back to the same channel you started with. Assuming you don't actually have the signal coming in on an auxiliary line-in and that you had it coming in on a channel, you may need to reset the presets on the television so that it recognizes the one important channel the cable tv box is sending out -- just follow your television menu to select or set channels. There is one more possible easy problem ... I have seen this one happen, after getting the channel correct and reset, if it still doesn't work, you mght need to turn the set off and wait one minute, then turn it back on WHILE the cable box is ON. This can cause the set to RE-Latch onto the cable box signal. It really doesn't sound like something is truly broken or needs replacement, sounds more like a user error. If your set is still under warranty, just call the Panasonic hotline (find it in Google, and they may be able to walk you through exact instructions for your model). Hope this helps.

I accidently put the child lock on the magnavox tv how can i get it off with a universal remote?


Depend on your remote would be easier with the remote that came with the TV. Can you acses the TVs menu with your universal? if not I don't think there's anything you can do. if yes, this how you do it:

1 Press MENU to show the on-screen menu.
2 Press VOL+ or VOL- repeatedly until SET is highlighted.
3 Press CH+ or CH- to highlight CHILD LOCK.
4 Press VOL+ or VOL- to choose ON or OFF. Choose ON to disable all the buttons on the front of the TV. CHILD LOCK ON will appear briefly on the TV screen each time you press a button on the front of the TV. You can still operate the TV with the remote control.You can still use the POWER button on the front of the TV, but only to turn off the TV (not on). Set CHILD LOCK to OFF to cancel this feature so you can use the buttons on the front of the TV again.
5 Press TV/AV/EXIT to remove the menu from the screen.

Where is the eye for the remote on the TV????


Hi, remote sensor is located behind the front screen, if the remote doesn`t work as well (you didn`t say so I`m assuming it doesn`t) then you either have bad tact switches on the control board (the buttons on the front of the set) or the 5 volt line to the control board is missing, video-tek

Tv is lock cantnot change chanells cantget menupower on off ok


this to happened to me with my insignia 27", I stumbled on the fix by accident...first unplug the tv and wait for 10 minutes, next just press the power button for 10 to 15 seconds and then put the plug back in and power it on (keep pressing the power button without releasing til it is on) then you should be able to use the menu and all other buttons manually....you may have to repeat this again.
