Question about RCA 35V432T 35" TV

3 Answers

Switches channels etc. on its own

This TV has gone bonkers. It comes on by itself sometimes. If I turn it on, it changes channels or goes into programming mode. This happens 100% of the time. I've tried taking the batteries out of every remote in the house, figuring a stray signal was causing this, but that didn't stop it. I've noted that some strain on the cable seems to have bent the cable jack slightly, but I don't think that caused this. Solutions appreciated!

    I beat the thing with a hammer, broke it to bits and bought an HDTV big screen.

    Best day of my life.

The optimal solution is classic American capitalism and violence at its best.  Get yourself a hammer - no, NO! not that one, a BIG one, and beat that piece of junk to bits and rejoice at the little "pop" when the vacuum tube explodes.  Carry the remains to the curb with the rest of the garbage.  Then go buy an LCD HDTV  (plasma even better) on credit since you don't have the cash, and move on. 


Just pay the $25 per month on the card and rejoice.  You'll feel better.  We'll all feel better.  There is no debtor's prison.  I hope someday you'll join me, and the world can live as one.

Perhaps your neighbours have the same tele and the same remote......its not unheard of they may be in the direct line to your TV. Other than that I cant see that a tele can do all this by itself. Im not being cheeky here it is NOT logical?

Try relocating the location of your antenna or changing the direction it is pointed. Once this is changed, select PROGRAM CHANNEL from the SETUP menu and set ANT IN to Antenna before selecting Auto to start the programming process.

Black box comes up on tv screen

The black box is a text box for closed captioning. Some stations send the signal which turns on the box while not actually broadcasting any text. Go into your setup menu and turn off closed captioning, or at least change it to a different mode. The easiest option is to restore factory presets.
