Question about GE 46GW 948 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Menu going crazy on the screen!

The menu on my GE 46GW948 46" TV will not stop popping up on the screen. When it does pop up none of the control buttons on the bottom of the tv will control it. When the channel buttons, volumn buttons & the on and off buttons do work they seem to be one button off. I press the volumn up button to turn the darn thing off. After a few minutes, it works fine again but doesn't last very long. I've unplugged the set overnight hoping to reset it but nothing has helped. The menu just keeps popping up!

Front panel buttons and remote have stopped working.


Is the favorite channel menu a function that is normally accessed by a button on the remote?

If so, that button on the remote might be stuck.
If this is the case, the menu may at times pop up all by itself and other buttons on the remote and on the TV's front panel may not respond at all (it had happened on my remotes more than once).

Try to clean the remote control (the housing, rubber pad with knobs, circuit board) with ethyl alcohol, when you clean the housing, you should also clean the holes through which the buttons protrude, there might be some dirt that keeps the button stuck.

It may also be a stuck button on the TV front panel, so check these too.

Also, it could be something else, i just wrote the description of a problem and the solution which to me seemed most likely.

Hope you get it fixed.

RCA HDTV MENU AND VOLUME CONTROL POPS ON AND OFF SCREEN.


My TV was doing the same thing. Someone told me to disconnect the front menu buttons and this worked for me. The board goes haywire. You have to take off the front black panel on the bottom first then the grey front panel where the controls are. Once you do this you will see where there is a plug from tv to the panel where the control buttons are. Just disconnect. You will only be able to use your remote for TV. Its a cheap and easy fix. Just lots of screws to get the panels off and on. Good luck!
