Question about Toshiba 36A40 36" TV

Channels keep changing

My TV was working fine but now when I hit the channel up or down it keeps moving and if I hit the volume it keeps going up or down. I changed batteries and even tried a new remote but it is still happening. If you have the answer to this problem please email [email protected] Thank you.

Ok, let's try the simplest things first.... unplug the tv from the wall, and remove the batteries from the remote. wait about 5 or 10 minutes. reinstall the batteries and plug the tv back in. try it again. actually since you said you tried another remote, you can skip removing the batteries from the remote. if it still does it, try unplugging the tv overnight. if it still doesn't work right then, you have a processor problem, and need to have it looked at by a service tech.

MENU SCREEN POPS UP, TV CHANGES CHANNELS, TURNS SOUND DOWN


Yes. Its probably a stuck button on the TV's front panel. Try pushing or wiggling each button on the panel. It could be the channel up/down buttons or volume up/down, menu, etc.

When there is a button that is making slight contact, it keeps the microprocessor busy attending to the command its erroneously receiving from the offending button and may not allow other functions to work when this occurs.

It doesn't matter which button is stuck, any of the symptoms you describe can happen.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?


this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U VOlume Control


OK guys I'll save you. The tv is in hotel mode. To get it out from there you have to go in service menu but DO NOT CHANGE ANY OTHER THING IN THERE, only what i tell you. With the tv on and the K letter on the screen press in the same time vol- and ch- on the tv set. Now you'll be in service mode. On the remote press down arrow (not -channel) and you'll see up industry init. go there with ch- and press vol+ and enter. let the tv like that for few seconds and the tv will go green and hopefully industry init succsesfull will be on the screen. After that unplug the tv and replug it. Done!

Tv wont stop changing channels


ok, Sony had this issue on their early production. The problem you are having is called a leaky switch. The volume down switch on the TV is leaky. To fix this you must replace the switch. This part is called the switch block. Part number 1-473-549-21

Average cost $26
