Sound is choppy and stops...have to change the channel and go back to old channel for sound to start again?


I have this same issue --- it kinda sounds "digital" or choppy.. then after a few minutes sound will go away all together. If i change the channel the sound returns as normal.
Were you able to fix it?

Channel changes automatically. None of the buttons seem to be stuck. Please help.


To troubleshoot this first ake the batteries out of the remote. If the changing of channels stops then the fault is with the remote not the television. Replace new batteries into the remote and see if the issue is resolved. If it continues go around each button pressing and releasing it - if the problem persists you will need to purchase a new remote.

If the problem continues even with the batteries out of the remote then you have a faulty tuner on the TV and this will need to be replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The buttons on top of mt tv go crazy the flip channels automatically and turn volume up and down automatically


I have had this problem on this same model (F32650) and I discovered that what is happening is that dust and debris are causing the microswitches in the panel to short, therefore the channel starts changing and wont stop or the volume changes etc...
Get some electronic switch cleaner and (with the power off of course!) spray into the crevaces around each button and press each button a few times and then power the unit back on and it should be fine.

My Vizio plasma TV won't change channels with the remote or side buttons, but if I input a channel number, it will change that way.


Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then doing an auto channel search through the menu button. That has solved my problem, at least for the time being.

Channel changes automatically


There are a few things that can cause this. #1 most often cause is either something spilled on the channel button or something wrong with the bezel where the buttons are located causing the button to be pressed all the time. Check the buttons on the tv and make sure none of them are stuck. #2 is a bad button (switch). Replace the switch or the control board. #3 is a short on the wiring harness going from the switch to the mian board. Maybe it's squished against the frame somewhere. #4 would be a bad main board. You will likely have to take this unit to a service centre to have it looked at.

This may sound silly, but are you changing the channel to the HDMI channel (one of the AV channels)
