    Our RCA Television, Model # 27V250T has all of a sudden decided to have a mind of it's own. Just recently it started to go on and off by itself!! Once in a while it will stay on steadily, but then out of nowhere it will shut itself off and then on again! What could be the problem??

The problem is the key board controller is malfunctioning. I have contacted a multitude of supply houses even
RCA included and I have not been able to buy the part. However, you can bypass the problem by disabling the key board functions by activating the parental control item, not the password, by using the remote. All the keys on the front panel will be disabled but you can still operate the tv with the remote plus save yourself a cost on parts and labor.

On mx900 genesis universal remote the up down arrows to change channels will not work - cannot get guide to display -cannot change channels using#key pad - volume up down work fine suggestions?


Incorrect code. Try different programming codes for one that operates your TV correctly. Note not all universal remotes will work all features of a tv. Sometimes all you can get (especially on lower end remotes) is power and volume

Consider that you may have a bad remote. You never mentioned why you bought a new remote. Did the original remote quit working? If so, the problem may be with the TV.

I locked up my set by mistake need to unlock it and adjust channel for directv I lost my remote use the front keys which caused initial problem tried to adjust volume hit channel key


Hello

Tounlock your TV you surely need its remote control. Try to get it from somewhere, from any one of your friends, who own the similar model of TV, or buy it from RCA. After getting it try the following. You can unlock it.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset procedure is different depending on the model. Try each method until you find one that works:
  1. Hold down MENU on the remote and VOLUME DOWN on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN buttons on the TV its self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down GO BACK on the remote and MENU on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  5. Hold down EJECT on the front of the TV and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

If you have the original remote (RC-A07) for Sinotec tv, then press and hold down the Music button for about 10 seconds

Can only select channel 13 no other numbers respond. Channel selector only goes down, won't go up, volume control will only get lowers, will not always go down. Power switch does not respong. Have already...


Did you use your remote a lot?
Do some buttons work sometimes if you press them really hard?

If it's a double yes and you've already cleaned the remote (the rubber pad with buttons and the circuit board with contact tabs), then the buttons are most probably worn out, which means they no longer make a good contact on the circuit board tabs.

There's a repair liquid kit for remotes, i'm not sure what the brand name is or where to get it, in europe, conrad electronic was selling it some time ago, however, i make my own from benzene, rubber glue and grapphite powder.

The other solution is either to find a new rubber button pad or to get a brand new remote...

Front panel buttons on Philips rear projection do random things


Leaky tact switches on control panel. Part number is 242212802742. Takes 6. They will cost you around 6.00 a piece. Lower front panel pulls off. Be careful as there are two cables attached to htis panel. This should take care of your issues.

Turn tv on, and it scrolls through the channels


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!!

Scrolling Channels


You probably have a bad channel down switch on the TV. This is common if any kind of liquid spilled inside of the TV near the controls. The other possibility is just a stuck button on the control pad itself. Sometimes the plastic warps a bit causing to rub against the cabinet causing it to stick. Try moving the button and see if it has free movement.
