I've seen a similar problem like this caused by a stuck button either on the set or the remote control. IF one button has no effect then that's the one that's bad. This might also be your problem. If not then something has failed in the system control circuit. Stargazer

My Volume and Channel button won't work and so I have bout 2 remotes, neither of them have worked, one is the RCR311BR remote which has been noted to work for this tv. What else can I do

I have a 2000 model RCA P52923 and I had the same problem occur a couple of days ago. The sound hasn't worked for a couple of years, but the TV is connected to an RCA surround sound to resolve that issue. Most recently, while watching TV, it began to start scanning channels by itself. I shut it off and unplugged it for a couple of days, but each time that I turn it on, it begins to immediately start scanning each channel. Neither the remote, nor the channel buttons on the set are able to stop the scanning, and neither of them will perform any functions, including turning the set on and off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Won't stop scanning for Dtv...just says now scanning

Have Sylvania CR202SL8 TV with same problem. Cannot stop the scan or reset TV. It turns off at 15 minutes as designed when no action or signal.
DId you ever find a solution?

It had been in storage for years. Inititally, on power on it turned off on its own. Let it rest and retried and went in to Menu, I scanned the channels on antenna and worked fine for 15 minutes. Showed Now Scanning for seconds but image came back. Then it went into the Now Scanning screen and got stuck.

It did once get to the menu (don't know if on its own or my trying remote control button combinations) and was able to restart the scan (DTV/TV option, don't have DTV only option)...apparently it scanned digital, but started scanning for on air channels and got stuck on Now Scanning.

My DVD player LG DR165 DVD Recorder is giving me an error.

PROGRESIVE SCAN will only work with an HD TV and it does not work via the scart lead. Select off for it if you have an old TV. If you can't get it to stop coming on by doing what it says to do, then you have an electrical fault on the LG.
PROGRESIVE SCAN itself is a method of getting high quality images on HD TV's via the special sockets at the back of the DVD.

I would like to change the start up channel setting.

if you are using satellite or something that use channel 3 and there are no other channels(cable) do a channel scan from the menu of your tv.if you have an antenna or cable hooked up temporarily unhook it so when you do the scan all it finds is what you have on channel 3.channel scan may also be called autoprogram depending on your tv
