Question about RCA F19430 19" TV

Open Question

When I turned off the set, it turned itself back on and began cycling through all the channels the way it might if one were just setting it up on a cable system. Kept doing this forever even though it paused several times on the channel we set it for to connect with the satellite box. There was snow on the screen while this happened. At one point, it suddenly set the volume up on high. We had to unplug it since the off button either did nothing, or the set just came on again.

SOURCE: menu wont work, continuos channel search

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.

SOURCE: FPA lock settings, No remote, can not power on TV

If you forget your password you can reset it. Make sure the TV is off. Simultaneously press and hold VOL< on the TV?s front panel and CLEAR on the remote for approximately 5 seconds. Enter a new password next time you access the PARENTAL CONTROL menu. Front Panel Lock 1. From the PARENTAL CONTROL menu, press the up or down arrow to highlight Lock Fr. Panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow to turn on (box has check mark) or off (box doesn?t have check mark) front panel lock. Of course if you don't have a remote that can bring up the menu I don't know how this can be done.

SOURCE: Keeps changing channels/volume by itself

One or more of the front switches are likely leaky.  They are less than $3 apiece and I just change them all to save future problems.  You might be able to push all of the buttons on the front of the set a few times such as volume up and down and channel up and down and temporarly cure the problem but the switches will likely need to be changed.

TV going through channels continuously


Try a reset. Different models do it different ways - but most require either unplugging for 5 - 10 minutes and plugging back in - OR - press and hold the power button on the TV for 20 - 30 seconds. You may need to access the Set Up Menu and perform the RESET from within one of the menus. Good luck!

My Volume and Channel button won't work and so I have bout 2 remotes, neither of them have worked, one is the RCR311BR remote which has been noted to work for this tv. What else can I do


I have a 2000 model RCA P52923 and I had the same problem occur a couple of days ago. The sound hasn't worked for a couple of years, but the TV is connected to an RCA surround sound to resolve that issue. Most recently, while watching TV, it began to start scanning channels by itself. I shut it off and unplugged it for a couple of days, but each time that I turn it on, it begins to immediately start scanning each channel. Neither the remote, nor the channel buttons on the set are able to stop the scanning, and neither of them will perform any functions, including turning the set on and off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have an 37LC7D. It occasionally hangs on channel 41. When this happens it turns itself off but comes right back on, then off again. When this happens the remote will not do anything. To get the set going...


check your set up and make sure it is in consumer not hotel settings. The hotels use a random program channel to turn sets off. IT should be in the fist time set up menu.
please leave feedback

TV turns itself off every 4 to 5 hours. Then turns itself right back on??? Settings all seem OK. This problem began about 2 months after we purchased the tv. Any thoughts???


Check SMPS feed back opto isolator.This could cause this problem if there is no other fault. Check for any dry solder joints. take service center help if you find it difficult to fix!

Well, that's the front panel button.Try pushing each button until you know which one is the cause.Actually,you need to find someone to replace this button, because to replace this button,you need to open the TV case, that's why you need an expert to do this.

Hope it works!!!!

All was Ok on Wednesday 4th November, but now I can't get channels 3, 4, 5. When I retune - it just says 'this programme number is not availabe' and yet I can get them on smaller Tvs upstairs


Try this: With set off hit the display button on remote, then the channel five button, then the volume up button then the power button , do all this within 3secs of pressing the first button. The unit should come on in service mode. Now hit the number 8 key and then the enter button. The set should turn itself off the turn itself back on on channel 3. This procedure is the factory reset mode. It resets the set back to when u first took it out of the box. Remember all user settings will have to be reset back to your specs.

SPECIFIC FIX FOR GE 32GT660


I have the same problem, except that it would turn on by itself and then start changing channels. I had a can of compressed air and sprayed the button areas to see if there were sticking. It worked for a coupe of days, then started happening again. So I searched the web and found a response to a question someone else posted and the ensuing reply "most likely you have one of 2 things going on one is the foam between the buttons and the switches or you may have a switch getting leaky and would need replaced" Looks like I may have to taking the cover off and find some type of electronic cleaner, or replace the buttons. I find it odd that I got hits for the same issue with the same model. hhhhmmmmm?
