Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV
First of all, you could take the remote out of the room and see,if TV would still change channels itself.Many times if the remote is at fault, these symptoms could be observed.
The next thing would be
Did anyone try to clean the TV screen lately?Maybe with Windex or something like that?
What can happen ,is the cleaning agent dripped inside of set and created a path for the electric current-causing the switches to malfunction.Sometimes only the ambient moisture will cause this without any human interaction. Try and open unit up and clean the switches in the front(behind the buttons-onto the board,with some contact cleaner).If this does not work,the switches must be replaced.
If both of these are excluded, then it is an internal fault. This usually refers to a faulty act switch on the control board which is sticking or shorted out.
' The tact switches are the most common ' reason for the same.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

There could be a few things causing this. Does it happen if you take the batteries out of the remote, will it still change channels on it's own? It could be the remote acting up, but most likely it is the actual main board of the TV that is having hardware issues. Let me know if you have ruled out the remote for sure... Thanks Tim
