Question about Sanyo DS13204 TV
Hi, My son has just squirted water into the tv! Into the red/yellow/white connectors at the front to be precise. And the problem I now have is that the tv is constantly changing the channel - would anyone have any ideas how to fix this - easily? is it just a case of letting it dry out? Thanks
The push button assambly is wet too,I dont know how much water he put in there.If you are familiar with tv service remove the back cover and slide the chassis back so you can clean the buttons,this needs to be done before corrosion sets in,once it sets in it will give you other symptoms and all the buttons will have to be replaced,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and seek the help of a servicer.Good luck

You may have fixed it by now, taking jomaru's advice, i'me afraid I have got a bit behind fixing things at home. If you get water in a television it will conduct as it is usually slightly acidic. Anything other than tap water or purer will require a service engineer to look at it, as it will cause problems if it goes on any contacts. The changing channels; may be the water is causing conduction between soldered joints on the circuit boards. If this is on the 30 volt tuner voltage output it will easily change the voltage randomly and give different channels. Just wait for it to dry out. If as on older sets there is a variable resistor, or potentiometer which has got wet this is more serious, and may need gentle heat from a hairdryer.

inserting a dvd,and then switching
to video the tv has to have a silgnal
when you switch to video the dvd
players splash screen should come
up,and then it will load the dvd

IF THE TV DOESN'T HAVE A BUTTON U NEED THE REMOTE, U MAY GET AWAY WITH A UNIVERSAL BUT ONLY IFNITS THE SAME BRAND MAKER OTHERWISE U MAY HAVE GET THE REMOTE IF POSSIBLE OR USE A VCR AS THE NEW TURNER FOR THE TV, WHICH U CAN USE THE VIDEO OUTOUT TO INPUT THE SIGNAL INTO THE TV

Personally when I do encounter a TV with known water damage [set was plugged in of course] I will regretfully deny repair. It will be next to impossible to fully recover a repair. This is my very honest opinion!
