Turn tv on, and it scrolls through the channels

WE turned the tv on using a remote. The tv just scrolls through the channels, going through all the channels on the guide without stopping. Sometimes the guide page changes, sometimes not. I can turn off the guide, but then the tv just scrolls through the channels on the tv. Would like to be able to watch my tv! Thanks for any help. just now, for no known reason, the tv stopped on one channel, but now I can't get the guid off of the screen. I tried pushing the ok button and the guide button, but no change. It seems to have stopped scrolling when it hit the last channel in the guide this time, channel 55. I pushed channel + and - several times, don't know if this made it stop since it didn't stop right away.

Had the same problem, channels would not stop scrolling.
It was as though someone had there finger on the channel up button.
Disconnected the sixth wire, starting with the black wire on the wiring harness for the front buttons, on/off, ch. up/down, vol. up/down, etc.
It works fine, no more unwanted channel surfing!!

Is there a TV Guide for the ematic AT 103B digital converter box?


There is an electronic program guide. However, it's limited. To see the current program and upcoming programs for the current channel, press the EPG button on the original Ematic AT103B remote. (Universal remotes may or may not match the function.) To see the other channel's program list, use the left/right arrows to scroll through the lists for all of the available channels.

You may find a web site like Titan TV, http://www.titantv.com/ , more useful. The site has a guide to all channels at once by time for your area OTA channels.

I hope this helps.

Toshiba tv 40rv525u has started to change channels


My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna).
my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777..
later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel
I call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and time.

Now, I found how to fix it myself.

In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV.
========================
What I did
========================
unplug the power cord.
Remove back cover.
Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).

First, I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable).
I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.

I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard.
I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.

Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.

DONE.

I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there.
Close the TV back panel

I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling.
NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.

Hope this help someone else.

Toshiba 40rv525r screen says NOT AVAILABLE


I've had the same issue! This is caused by the control panel telling the TV what to do - does it change channels on its own, too, or turn off or on on its own?

What you need to do (if you've not already done it) is lock the control panel out, which you can do under the LOCK menu.

What may help is running the factory reset on page 54.

Getting a specific channel on the TV without using a remote


Usually if you go into the setup menu, there is an option to allow you to either "scan" for a channel, or "input" a channel. In this case, select "input" and see if the TV will allow you to press the up and down channel buttons and go to a specific channel. If so, when you get to channel 4, press the "add this channel" option (or whatever the menu option says) and you should then be able to go to channel 4 using the buttons on the front without skipping over it.

Mitsubishi WS-65611 tv channels cannot stop scrolling


Check to make sure the channel down button is not stuck. If it is not the button is probably defective. Mits has had a lot of problems with the buttons.

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.
