My RCA TV is 1&1/2 yrs old. It goes on and off by itself, will not stay on a channel and the sound immediately goes up to 100 and overrides the remote and buttons. Thompson/RCA says "tough" sorry is't out of warrenty. I have never experienced problems with a television in this short amount of time. And now they want my to pay more money to one of their "authorized service centers". AGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TV worked FINE for the past 2 yrs---this morning we woke up and the screen is totally BLACK! No sound..nothing. REmote doesn't do anything to the TV. Red light says ON unless we unplug it. Remote won't turn off the TV.
Any advise? Picture tube??
Worked great w/out any problems until we woke up today!

TOPIC: Set comes on by itself
Symptom: When the set is first plugged in or after a power interruption the set comes on
Cause: Set was not taken out of factory mode, or has returned to factory mode
Cure: In the service menu go to setting FAC07, then change the value of OPTM2 to “00”
To enter the service mode simultaneously press “Volume Down” on the front panel and “Info” on
the remote control.
Use the original TV remote for the instrument.
Press “7” on the remote to enter factory menu 07. Use the channel down button to scroll down to
OPTM2, then use the volume buttons to set the value to 00. Press the “Sound” button on the
remote to exit the factory mode. DO NOT turn the set off until the screen displays “OK”.
