Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

2001 52" RCA Rear Projection Home Theater Model P52927

The television worked fine then while watching it it started switching channels on its own. It runs through every saved channel from lowest to highest. When it gets to the top of them it starts at the bottom and does it all again. Neither the remote or the buttons will work on the television.on the unit will work at all. We have unplugged it for up to 24 hours and when plugging it back in it will turn on on its own and start the whole process over. Any suggestions

    My tv is doing the same thing. It also turns on by itself and starts going through the channels. I was able to watch an entire movie last night and it didn't do it at all for some reason. I was also able to swich to video 1 for a short time to play video games but it automatically switched to tv and changed channels. I unplugged for about eight hours and looked for a reset button. I also tried to go to menu but it keeps switching on its own. Any ideas are appreciated.

    Wow, I'm not the only one! I've had this television for years now, and the exact same thing is going on. Some days now it won't even turn on, finally today after about a week a start hitting the power button about 5 times, and it's back on! But again with the same damn channels counting down. Another thing it would do sometimes do is, the volume would start going up and up and I'd have no control over it. Would love to know what's going on too. Please someone help!!!

SOURCE: RCA 60" projection tv Turns on and starts flipping channels by it self

replace the keyboard or remove the switches for channel up/down to see which one is bad. if neither does it, there are some components around the microprocessor that can cause this.

You have a convergence problem, try unplugging power for 5 minutes. Call factory authorized service center.
